Dear Lynn,The dogs at Ölüdeniz are stary dogs but all of them are looked after. The council as well as animal lovers (many expats) sort the health issues such as vaccination and more. The dogs have names all th locals know and the dogs are treated good. It is nice to see that you care about these dogs and raise your concern which we do appreciate. But rest assured, the dogs have food, shelter and medical treatment. In the early days (say 15 years ago) the council would collect them and poisonthem or poison them on the spot. With the help of sensitive people such as yourself the council has distanced itself from such practice. And yes, as you mention, these dogs areselective because they get plenty of pizza and other goodies during the season. It is very hard to get them to eat bread (which they should not). Again, thank you for your concern!

helena. I too am so sensitive to the stray dogs. Don't go to South America, it will break your heart. They freely admit that some buy them as pups but put them out later. They are all over the place, begging, but they are sweet and not aggressive at all. Everywhere I went there I would find a store with dog food and distribute it as far as it would go. I traveled to Trabzon and to Sinop on the Black Sea, once and saw many strays as well. I would take small sandwiched ashore to feed the animals (i do this everywhere I go) Anyway. the dogs there would peel back the bread and only eat the meat. Maybe they were't strays after all, definitely not starving stays. Maybe people there feed them.

Stormy , looks to me like the water did reach the shops and the trees are gone
Poor dogs they need picking up and bringing to a country that will look after them
Seem to be a lot of stay dogs poor things
What are all those men doing!!
What a mess, did the sea roll right into the shops and cafes?
Today's picture doesn't show much of the summer paradise
21nov18--During this time of year ( the off season ) what is seen is mostly new and experienced pilots doing training. At times gliders are parallel to the sea in the air and not flying, pilots get the feel of the gliders doing this and at times you can see young folks 'sailing their gliders'. Experienced pilots are working towards a higher level license to allow them to TANDEM a passenger. EnJoy EnJoy
