Smilin' Spike and friends

We met Smilin' Spike, and his buddies Scurvy and One-eyed Lucy while staying at the Maya Breeze Inn on Maya Beach in Placencia, Belize. When we first arrived we were warned that there was a dog that hangs around and looks a little mean when he first meets you (see the left picture above) but not to worry...that's Smilin' Spike. Once he found out that Deena would get him food from any number of cafes and restaurants, he wouldn't leave our cabin. He would be there when we woke up and be there when we went to bed.
