Dogs and Cats and a Tiny Greek Island


If anyone has a dog EXACTLY like this one that they don't want any more, please could you let me know?

This is the new friend I made on arriving back in Tilos on Sunday lunchtime, after an overnight ferry from Athens.


He likes the sea (well, just look at that clear water)...



Isn't sure if he likes cats...



Well, maybe...





Butter wouldn't melt... This was just before he ran in circles around the cat, which eventually decided to run for it and only just got away...

But hang on, what's this...



...staying RIGHT HERE out of reach



...aha!



There must be a way down! 



When all the cats have been chased, a stick is the answer. OK, this might not be the biggest stick...



...but still, a stick's a stick...



...and this one's mine.



And so I chased a dog around the harbour for a while. Welcome back to Tilos!



While I was away, people kept asking me, 'Why did you end up in Tilos?' It's a hard question to answer. But on Sunday, arriving back here, it dawned on me that it's simple: it's just the most beautiful place I've ever been.
