A dog on the ferry from Sandhamn to Stockholm.
I will admit right at the start to being a dog lover. But I live in a rather dog unfriendly state, so it was wonderful to see how dogs are included in everything in Sweden, or almost everything.
We saw dogs just about everywhere. My theory is that the dogs are introduced to this inclusion at a young age, and their good behavior in public is the result.

We saw them on the ferry, on the bus, at cafes, on the street, at the ruins in Visby, and at the palace at Drottningholm.
