When in Instanbul, we saw many stray dogs, all of whom had tags in their ears. They were all large dogs and all well behaved and friendly.

This is the case in Athens as well. Our food tour guide told us that the dogs are collected, neutered and vaccinated before being released. They all seemed to be healthy and well fed. Shop and property owners allow them to take shelter out of the rain.

  1. I haven’t decided if I’m sad or glad. I feel bad that so many animals are roaming and without families, but I’m glad that people are compassionate and caring for these animals in general.

  2. What a very nice thing to do for all those lonely critters. Eventually, they should balance out after all the ‘fixing’s been done for a few pet generations.
