Photo: the Most Laid-Back Delhi Street Dog Ever

I have posted before about how now only are New Delhi street dogs clever and enterprising, but also totally unflappable. The often straight up sleep on busy sidewalks as people step over and around them amid this buzzing metropolis of 26 million.

But the mutt pictured above, which I encountered recently at the popular Khan Market, takes the cake. He was splayed out like this, paws in the air, dozing. Right in the middle of an entrance. Without a care in the world. In the middle of the day.

On Facebook, a friend speculated that the fellow was sleeping like this, with his belly exposed, to take advantage of air conditioning emanating from a shop on the left. That may well be the case.

Totally. Unflappable.
