This page is dedicated with lots and lots of love to the stray dogs and cats -and the free birds as well- of Athens, which, in this time of crisis, manage to survive, despite the indifference of the many and thanks to the care of a few caring humans.
But, specifically, this page is dedicated to my Lobo, the wonderful stray mutt dog who was adopted from the San Francisco SPCA, (half german shepherd - half black labrador, he was), and later accompanied me in my repatriation to Athens and proved himself to be my very best friend ever, in good times and in very bad times, till his departure in old age for greener pastures and happier back yards.
Please consider this: There is no better measurement of civility, humanity, and culture, than the way we treat those in an inferior, less privileged position than us. And the animals, pet, stray or wild, need our respect, care and protection, every day of the year, and especially in times of need or in times of extreme hot or cold weather.
