During the early morning hours, the streets of Trogir belong to the city’s canine residents. The dogs (known as pas in Croatian) roam the network of narrow streets in the Old Town, going about their business in a carefree manner. Many are leash-less and solo, out for an adventure in the ancient town.
While out photographing last week, I rounded a corner and encountered this scruffy fellow. He paused — as if I’d just caught him in the midst of a mischievous act — and posed for the camera. He then trotted over to say hi, before making his rounds in the neighborhood.
Our favorite Trogir dog is a beige French Bulldog named Jacques. Every afternoon, Jacques goes for a walk along the Adriatic Sea, along with two equally energetic puppy companions and his mistress. Jacques moves at such a breakneck pace that I’m not sure I’ll ever capture him on camera. :)
