ABC WEDNESDAY --"F" is for "faces"

You can't make me believe, like some claim, that animals, especially dogs, do not have souls. Look at their expressions here.

This photo was taken when I accompanied a group of sixth-grade girls from the school where I teach for the second time to visit Katja, the valiant woman I wrote about here.

We gathered quite a lot of dog food, personal items for Katja, and some money to help her. But the best help would be if more kind-hearted people would adopt one of her dogs. My heart ached for the one in the middle with the straggly black hair, but Bibi would be insanely jealous.

Bibi grew up until the age of 10 months at Katja's before I adopted her.

See other F's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

Katja sure has a ton of dogs. How dose she manage? Your photo is fantastic! You really captured a lot of doggy emotion.

Bibi said...

Hello, Andy. At the present time, Katja, along with a couple of helpers, take care of 250 dogs....

My heart aches looking at your photo! I absolutely adore dogs and my heart has been stolen by the one to the left of the one you like - with the long brown nose! How I wish I could take him/her home. Katja is a saint!

Oh my! That is a genuine heart-tugger. This made me so sad looking at those sweet faces.
I hope someone adopts them before too long.

Beautiful picture, faces of sad beauty! We must not forget that dogs have been and are the closest partners in the evolution of man.

Hi! I am a Canadian do-lover living in Grocka, outside of Belgrade. I have been following your blog and would really love some more information about the dog lady. I would like to visit her and donate time and/or money. How can I reach her? Thanks!

Hello, Anonymous. Hi! I am currently in the US and will see in a little bit whether I can get my Serbian telephone on to give you her number. In the meantime, her name is Katja Ristic and she (and 200+ dogs) live at Ovcanski put 50, Ovca.
