I have had Marley out around town lately, working on public access behaviors. People come up to me all the time and comment on how he looks like a tiger (sometimes they say lion, lol). He has the strips, but his contrast is not as noticeable. To me he is more of a camouflage dog. When he is off in the brush I have a very hard time spotting him.
Tigers are by far my favorite of the big cats. It is so sad the plight that these beautiful cats face in the wild. While there are some amazing captive programs (Tiger Island in Australia being my favorite, Hogel Zoo here NOT falling into that category), it is very sad that we cannot seem to stop the decline of their wild counterparts.
