NEW Phodographer Rhia Bakshi in Chandigarh, India, Aug. 2010

Rhia just back from India is a junior at American University in Washington DC. She said:

Smiles really are contagious. By the end of my visit, this little girl and Foto, the mascot of Dog Meets World were the best of friends. It was not long before the other children followed her lead and lined up to have their photos taken. This one was taken at a crèche (preschool) in my home city in India. Most of these children come from poor homes in the area.

"The kids are absolutely loving Dog Meets World. For a majority, these were the first images of themselves that they have ever owned."
