Winter in Istanbul: Dogs


Saturday 05 September, 2015 by Uncle Spike

Following on from the Cats of Moda, we also came across a rather decent bunch of street hounds too on the Asian side of the Bosphorus.

This one obviously ‘owned’ that road….




Most were old souls, graciously living out their days.

All were certainly well cared for as you can see.




As with most dogs, each had it’s own patch, or territory. All along the morning running track by the shoreline were dogs, with one sat every hundred meters or so, just watching the world go(run) by. 




Whilst some would take a morning stroll through the backstreets of Moda and Kadıköy. Most were well known by the locals, and were very well fed – no starving skinny mutts around these parts.




And here’s why…. each morning, locals would be there at just after first light, feeding all the cats and dogs the best food they could get. After two decades in Türkiye, it was good to see some genuine compassion shown to our four-legged friends.
