Home of the friendliest pups. I mentioned earlier that Rarotonga has lots of friendly dogs. Well here is a great example of just how friendly. If you look closely, you’ll see there’s a dog in the picture. I was already swimming on my own around 100 feet off shore, when this pup that I must have previously given a pat came by on the beach. After pacing back and forth on the beach while staring at me, I said “come here” and the next thing you know this pup was swimming right at me! He came the full distance! Never seen a pup so friendly, especially to a near stranger!
