The AR Dogs viewed through a mobile device and the Aurasma App:
Dogs are my most favorite subjects. They represent qualities of loyalty, trust, and “being present.” On June 5th, 2012 during a visit to McLeod Ganj, India, three street dogs embodied these qualities… they saved me from a pack of macaques.
I had been warned about the macaques, but I made the mistake of walking up a narrow dirt path, not realizing there was a troop of macaques both above and below… The macaques surrounded me and as the largest ones charged, three dogs busted through the group, scattering the macaques. When the dust settled, the dogs returned to me. The lead dog (I named her Dharma) came close enough for me to pat her head and say “good dog.” The dogs trotted back to their sentinel positions, waiting to protect the next human who walked through their path.
