An Afghan in Monte Carlo

Afghan Hounds have a classy, aristocratic reputation. This is the dog of choice of celebrities and zillionaires. It's therefore fitting that Monaco has issued a stamp showing this king of dog breeds. Let's be honest, Monaco isn't a real nation, it's more like a floating casino overseen by an American businessman who pretends to be prince. Of course, Afghan Hounds are completely impossible to really tame, so I suppose the poor servants of the rich folk down Monte Carlo has to take them out for a stroll. The rich owners can't cope with them themselves. I wonder how many stray Afghans are running around on the beaches of the French Riviera, ha ha. Somehow, it seems fitting that this independent-minded hound also has a strange "hippie" image...
