The Tourist-Loving Dogs of Greece

I can’t end my entry on our Greek travels without talking about one of my favorite parts of the whole trip: the Greek dogs!!

Standing guard, walking around, but mostly sleeping; these HUGE (like Beethoven big), somewhatchubby, docile and friendly creatures can be found EVERYWHERE in the country!  And by everywhere, I mean even in friggin boutique stores!

Apparently, these guys are every bit as important to the Greek state as its own citizens as they are constantly fed and protected by the local government and shop owners themselves. That’s some heart-warming stuff right there, people!
