I have recently travelled to Athens and have found there is another side to Greece other than its deep rich history including Gods and Temples. Greece has a soft side too - a furry side. The animals of Greece are a subject all of their own. The stray cats and dogs dotting the streets and avenues are sweet soft faces amoung the hard landscape of the city.They lounge in hidden spaces and soak up the rays of February's sunlight. The air is cool but there is enough heat to warm their little bodies.
The dogs ebb and flow with the tides of people that walk the streets. They lounge on the stairs of the Acropolis and lay on the sidewalks for naps. There are the clever dogs that find the warmth of hotel and store fronts and have spots staked out on the carpets outside of the doors.HERE.
Honest to goodness I would have brought this one home with me if I could have. His face just stole my heart.
