Ok, by now you must know that I am a dog lover. I’ve had two during my adult life. This story, from far away, struck a chord–how people can get along with unknown animals in their midst. See the full story on CNN.

It’s a story about a stray dog in Istanbul. A dog that gets on subway trains, trams and ferries. He knows where to go to get on. He has a tag in one ear that proves he is neutered and vaccinated. He enjoys the rides and has celebrity status. Municipal authorities have checked him out and Okayed his travels. The story from CNN has lots of pictures of him going here and there. You should check it out–even if you’re not a dog fan. Of course, you may already have seen it–the story has already appeared all over the world.

  1. Boji- what a lovely story John. That’s one very smart pooch. Glad that he brings joy to so many. I know that dogs chase cats but Boji seems to have a very particular dislike of them!

  2. Wow, what a fantastic story. Boji is independent and doesn’t want to be owned, but travel the world. I bet he could write a book about things he’s seen! Lol 🙂
