Dogs - Cool ice breakers!

It can be hard getting to know new people, especially when you move to a new area or worse, a new country!! It's not always easy to tell if a stranger will welcome efforts to strike up a conversation. Unless, that is, one of you happens to be walking a dog. It's a great ice-breaker; a person who might otherwise walk past with barely a nod or a look, will smile, say hello and before you know it, you've made a friendship with someone who has a shared interest - the love of dogs. This we have noticed here in Norway and it is most often cool people that stop and have a short talk about our four-legged friends :)
