{Dog Cafe} in Seoul, South Korea

Many of our friends who have heard our tales of South Korea will do a double take when reading the title of this let me quickly clarify! Dog (and cat) cafe's are playgrounds for furry friends to meet new people while giving us a chance to play with creatures we might not normally come across or be able to keep at home.

Here in South Korea space is limited, people live in sky rise apartments, and so are only able to keep small pets (the most popular being rabbits, hamsters, lizards and beetles!). At these animal cafe's, you stroll in, order yourself a yummy beverage, and get petting. 
Here are some snaps of our first experience with a Dog Cafe, in Seoul.

Don't let the sad eyes fool you! These pups are happy chappies in their home, they get attention all day everyday, and when they're not googoo eyeing you they are fast asleep. What a life!
This cafe is called Sunnyne, here is the address if you're in Seoul and want to pop by:
16, Yanghwa-ro 18an-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul 
서울특별시 마포구 양화로18안길 16 (동교동)

and here is the link for their website (it's only in Korean but gives you a good idea of the place). Open from 10am to 10pm, and on the second floor. Just look out for the bright yellow signs.
