The strays of Moscow

The very first story I wrote was about the strays of Moscow that have learned to ride the subway. Apparently the strays of Moscow are pretty famous. has a great slideshow about these smart but homeless mutts getting by on the street. They estimate that 30,000 dogs live on the streets of Moscow, so they are a staple in the scenery. They have learned to ride the metro, and even wait for a green light to cross the street! Somehow they even survive the cold winters. Lots of them live in packs, but some have buddied up with a homeless human and work the begging circuit together. Check out the whole slideshow linked above--25 pictures of the city-savvy mutts!
