When languages are translated, maybe without the assistance of inside knowledge for the colloquial that can be particularly inherent in english, some unusual results can be found - sometimes creating some humorous postings!

even the dogs are sweet and sociable?! - Ancient Corinth
even the dogs are sweet and sociable?!

Out for an early morning look around the main site of Ancient Corinth - before opening time and Id stopped again to look at the views over the Ancient theatre to the sea and the temple of Apollo under a different coloured sky as last nights view and getting pics of poppies amongst the rocks and shapes of things from many centuries before - when a number of dogs seemed to descend on the open road area to greet each other good morning - no barking or growling just a bit of sniffing and seemingly hugging and playful bantering and then off they ran.

All nice looking and appearing as well kept dogs. But if youre not one for dogs then bear in mind theres a number of them around (plus the mum one with a load of pups in the main excavation site enclosure near the exit gate I photographed the afternoon before when having to make do with looking through the fences and then again at 3pm when we were all booted out so early!) and saw other tourists coo cooing at the puppies. But when the puppies were yelping as if hungry the silly dog just ran off down the Lechaion way to bark at a mob of goats on the other side!
