Unfortunately Greece is going through a really bad Economic Crisis for several years in a row now. The American’s of the 19th Century would have called this period a PANIC to the economy. But no matter how bad the country is doing economically, there are still a lot of things to appreciate from this remarkable Mediterranean country. As I said the crisis has hit the whole country, so people have started abandoning their pets because they cannot afford to pay for their foods, vet bills, and other necessary treatments. Fortunately, there are places like the small island bar Hott Spott, in Mytilene, Lesbos that has opened the doors for stray dogs for almost a year now.
“When the bar closes each night, the dogs come and sleep here. We don’t have a problem. From July, every night there is a dog on the couch,” said a waiter at the bar, who wanted to remain anonymous.
