In Havana, stray dogs are everywhere. They're well fed, but no one owns them. Not so though for this girl. She's wearing a temporary tag that says, "My name is Canela. I am carmel color. I am sterilized. I live at the Museo de la Ortebreria, #113 Obispos Street."

In the cemetery, they snooze on the top of warm marble tombs, barely taking note of someone walking by. You can look, but when you get within 20 feet, they jump up and trot away.

At the Colon Cemetery we saw about 12 dogs. They rely on the generosity of dog lovers who put out bowls of food scraps and water.
