The day of theĀ Carnation Revolution brings everyone together on the streets of Lisbon and stands for a peaceful revolution. All kind of causes, people and dog owners are out and about. They sing, drum and celebrate marching along Avenida da Liberdade. Whilst their humans know why they are here, their canine company walk along slightly confused about all the noise meeting dozens of dogs along the way.

Otto was wearing his brand new red collar for thisĀ special walk. Very excited he sniffed, wiggled and pawed all over the place and people, whilst making sure to always keep sight of us. Any dog walking by seemed to reassure him, that it was ok to be here. Boxer Otto engaged in many friendly encounters, marking his territory and posing for pictures.
