celebrating the street dogs of the Balkans

Mount Vodno

On a sunny Saturday afternoon – what better day trip to make from Skopje but a journey up to the top of Mount Vodno. Immediately when we reached the top, we were greeted by this magnificent fellow.

I don’t think he was a stray as he seemed in excellent health and well groomed, however he did seem to free reign on the top of Vodno, wandering around and looking down on the sprawling city of Skopje beneath him.

After a long walk, we made our way over to the mountain hut to get some warming Planinski Caj – waiting there was another dog, obviously with the hope of getting some leftover crusts from the hikers picnics!

Finally time to leave… one last look back at the huge cross adorning the top, and it’s goodbye from the dogs.
