These three all cuddled up together was the sweetest thing I've come across in a while. They were the companions of a homeless man. When he left for a while, these three stayed right there, just waiting for him to return, even though there were probably thousands of people passing by and looking at them. I just thought, "Wow, they must really love their human."

    Was this photo taken in Santa Barbara? I saw the same thing when I visited there last year and I didn't have my camera with me like you did. I went back the next day with my camera and the trio was not there. It is an amazing thing to see for sure! Congrats on the shot!
