Dogs and Vending Machines

Two things I have not seen in Abu Dhabi:

One could make a killing with a vending machine concession here. Red Bull, Pepsi, Coca Cola--- take it to the bank. Twinkies as well. Maybe there is no trust in the machines, I don't know.

After 4 months here, I have yet to see a dog, maybe it is because Muslims consider a dog's slobber unclean. No strays or even people walking dogs. It's strange.

I do see some feral cats around the city and they look calm, healthy and well fed. They seem to be accepted, but not dogs. 

As a cat guy, I am happy for the cats, but I am also concerned about the dogs.
