Venice's hardworking dog population
Waggin' on the waterfront

Two dogs and a band

At an outdoor snack bar on the Zattere--the promenade that faces Venice's Giudecca Canal--two resident dogs often enjoy barking at passing pets when they aren't napping. 

The video above shows the dogs ignoring a blues band that was entertaining the snack bar's customers a few weeks ago. Fortunately, the dogs were too busy sunbathing to yap at other dogs during the performance.

Note: The snack bar, which is open year-round, is located near the Billa supermarket and the San Basilio vaporetto stop. It's a pleasant spot to enjoy a coffee or a drink before shopping for groceries. (In the video, you'll notice a supermarket customer cutting in front of the camera with two yellow Billa bags.)
