Reykjavik City Pond
Last week I moved to Reykjavik, Iceland (where I will be spending the next 4 months). It is a beautiful and friendly city. One of the things I was curious to find out was the accuracy of various reports on the web (like here, here and even here) that it is illegal to own a dog in Reykjavik. My second day here my question was answered when I passed someone walking a dog down the street. I have since seen many other pet dogs about. I asked a local about it and they got a good laugh to hear that the internet has sites saying it is illegal to own a dog in Reykjavik. There are strict leash, licensing and vaccination laws (like a lot of places), and apparently there used to be some even stricter laws, but let me state, it is not illegal to own a dog in Reykjavik, Iceland. Imagine that, incorrect information on the internet, this has got to be first :-)

Next thing, someone will be claiming that spaghetti doesn’t really grow on trees!
