I got up one Saturday morning around 2 months ago to the dogs going absolutely crackers! I looked out of the bedroom window to see - what I thought was a black and white puppy, all curled up asleep! (As with so many old Greek houses we have some back steps leading up into the bedrooms, with a *back door* )
So I left it there (even though my heart said 'nooooo don't leave it!!)
So we got up and the dog ran down the stairs to the back gate, where apon my dogs went bananas again! So we ignored it.
We eventually brought our dogs in to stop the noise!
Oaf and I settled down to breakfast and after a few minutes the dogs went quiet! Suddenly there was the cutest little face and the living room patio doors you could ever imagine!! She seemed to the saying 'well I am here, you might as well let me in!" She had managed to squeeze through the bars of two gates!! The dogs went ballistic!!
So to cut a long story short - we eventually took her in - kept her apart from the other three dogs so that we could make sure she was fit and well! Oaf called her Noodle, she wasn't a pup at all but a very small heinz variety dog! She must have a bit of jack russel, bit of english setter, bit of chiwawau - bit of mole hahaha
Anyway we eventually took her to the vets, Deano's to give her the once over and get all her necessary jabs etc
I asked Deano if he could put an age on Noodle 'she is a young dog not more that a year old' he replied.
I then asked him what type of dog do you think she is?
'I have no idea, no clue at all" he said, but added 'she could be a hunting dog for a man with a very small car!!"
Obviously we couldn't speak for laughing!!

When I lived in a mountain village in Epirus (just below Souli) in the 1970s, we were the only people with an inside lavatory as we rented a house from some Greeks who were working in Germany. Everyone else had outside ones and they were really basic. We went to some friends' house one summer night for supper and after we had eaten I asked if I could use the "loo". Our delightful hostess was obviously not too proud of their facilities and opened the back door which led on to an orchard, saying "anywhere you like out here!". I crept away from the house, found a likely spot, and in full moonlight crouched down. The next thing I knew, I was flying through the air. What our dear hostess had not told me was that there was a herd of goats in the orchard and the billy had taken more than exception to my presence and tried to butt me off his patch...
