A Harbor Guard Dog in Antalya – Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo

Guard Dog in Antalya Harbor

Along the Turkish Riviera the coastal city of Anatalya is home to resorts and ancient monuments. The city is awash in history, luxury, poverty, and its own special charm.  A regional powerhouse for thousands of years, it also has a wonderful old harbor surrounded by cliff top fortifications.  Still, the fortress walls aside, one of the local fishing vessels had its own security system.  This girl – on what appears to be the “Heya” was rather anxious about the absence of her owner/captain.  While I’m sure she was no-doubt friendly, she was also quite attentive and made sure that those of us lining the harbor docks did’t so much as consider trying to step onto her master’s boat.  I can only imagine that she was quite the intrepid fisherwomandog.

    Nice picture! Our dog, Emma, learned to be a boat dog this week on two boat trips in Croatia.
