Snowy and Tintin

This dog at a shack at Baga Beach reminded me of Tintin’s dog Snowy from the old comic Tintin’s adventures.

The Adventures of Tintin was an inspiration to many kids of my generation. He had adventures in exotic locations from Alien worlds to secret Inca Temples. He had eccentric friends, the most famous of which was the swearing, cussing, almost always drunk sailor Captain Haddock. The¬†legendary¬† quote being “Billions of billious barbecued blue blistering barnacles!” every time he stubbed his toe or someone tried to kill him.
