Dogs are a big part of my life – and cats too, when I grew up in Sweden. In Tbilisi there were so many cats and dogs – of which I have already featured some here. (Click the links) However, I have many more photos from lovely meetings with friendly dogs and cats. These galleries might give you a hint…of just how many dog citizens there are in Tbilisi.
This big guy was the first one I met, and he was relaxing just on the edge of some steps down to a tunnel under the road. I immediately noticed how well muscled he was and how impressive the thickness of his coat.
I had already learned that they are all vaccinated and friendly. The yellow ear button confirmed this fact.
And yes, the dogs were everywhere…sleeping in the middle of the road or path as well. This one was lying here.
Sleeping styles of different difficulty…
…and everywhere and anywhere. Preferences differed. For the heat, for the cooling down, for the view…I never asked – just guessed.
Some liked to play and some raised a bunch of puppies. Some were just thirsty !
I just loved the Georgian people and their concern for the animals. All dogs were not just vaccinated, but they also had their own lunch bar in Rike Park. At the end of Peace Bridge, you could leave your bottle in this bar and dog food would drizzle down.
A Happy Land for stray dogs – at least during the warmer seasons. We should all be that kind and caring. Clearly the citizens loved their animal friends. Harmony ruled.
And by the way…the dog in the header was the only one on a leash.

Lovely post, every picture caught my attention! Thanks for sharing.
Now you made me happy – loved those dogs!
Yes, the dogs in Tbilisi – what a joy to see … how well they are kept and care for … also the cats. That tells me a lot about the people in Tbilisi. The doggy bank … have to love it.
Viveka – I am forever grateful for your positive thought of Tbilisi – that was what made me go! När det här kriget är över – om vi kommer ut på andra sidan – ska vi ha TIO kartoffelkager!
Totally agree with … bring on the kartoffelkager!!! Keep safe and healthy for me … need you!!!! I hope you’re feeling better!!!
Viveka – you stay there for me as well! Talking about who needs who! ♥

How wonderful that the dogs are so well cared for.
Warmed my heart!
Ahhh! I would be completely mesmerised and wouldn’t have eyes for anything else. 😀 Wonderful! They all look so pleased.
That was a wonderful place for stray dogs. And yes, they seemed pleased and relaxed!
Love that dog in the header, little cap and all!!
A sweet guy!
I did not know that, what a great solution, I love dogs!
They have a rather good life over there!
The yellow button and the dog bar , both unusual but great ideas . That was a lovely share .
Glad you enjoyed them!
That’s a lot of dogs! I’m always amazed at the positions dogs can sleep in, especially with a leg or more in the air. Doesn’t look comfortable or even possible to me. 🙂
They are masters of sleeping positions!
i don’t have a dog but these photos warm my heart. i love where the third dog was lying 🙂 🙂
What a lovely selection of sleepy dogs
Thank you – they make me smile and feel warm at heart.
Such dear creatures. Lovely heartwarming post, Ann Christine. 😃
