The strange part is that this house harvests their lemons a few times a year and yesterday I saw several trucks and the stacks of lemon crates in the grove, all while this animal was hanging around. I didn't see any people working, as it was lunch time, but it would seem that the owners would know something about this creature- they have to have seen it before, right?
I met one dog owner long ago that kept his dog that had demodectic mange for years. The dog looked horrid, of course, and the man spent lots of time and money giving it some sort of a good life. But, I will say the dog seemed happy as long as the man cared well for him. Which he did.

Maybe this is the pet of the house?

That's what I'm wondering, too, if he's a pet! Poor thing, he just looked so scroungy I'm going to drive by on purpose in the next several days and see if I can't see him again.

How about a Xoloitzcuintli? It's a hairless dog breed from Mexico that's quite rare. They can have some different looks, some completely hairless, some with patches of hair. Here's a few pics to compare it to...

That last post made me LOL! I wonder if it is that type of dog? I've driven by 3 times and haven't seen it again but I have a feeling that I will.
