Feeding some local stray mutts…

I love animals, in particular dogs cos as a kid we always had dogs in the house, even three at a time. One thing that I really cannot understand is how people can treat dogs badly but as we all know, sadly it happens. So when I travel locally I always try to have some food with me just in case, and I have about 15 “regular” mutts that I feed (half are strays and half have a home and just enjoy a bone or whatever from time to time) and in addition sometimes I meet some “new entries”.

Well last week I was heading to Angri for work and I found a group of mutts that I had never seen before, so I stopped to say hello. Then as I have befriended a lovely butcher lady in Angri I went to visit and collected a big box of food for 10 Euro, to feed the new guys cos they looked very hungry indeed. I find it very unusual that four big dogs are abandoned together, how can that happen, usually the dogs thrown out of a car are alone. Not sure.

Anyway some pictures follow, these guys are lovely! Stop press, I visited again recently with food and there are 6 dogs altogether, so now when I drive past I take them some food.

PS. It seemed very strange indeed to find a group of big dogs, abandoned. How on earth did they get there? The mystery thickens cos when I drove past this week they had gone, I can only think that the local council took them to a dog sanctuary so I hope that they find a happy home!!

PPPPPPPS. Well another strange development today but PERHAPS I now understand. It seems that the land where I saw and met these dogs has been sold, as there is now a new gate at the entrance and today when I stopped, a car pulled up and asked me if I was the new owner. Anyway, I only stopped because I saw one of the big white dogs so I bought some meat. Then I saw that 3 of the dogs had returned and all 3 were very muddy so I GUESS that the new owner had them taken away and only 3 so far have found their way “home”?? Who knows.
