The stray dogs of Moscow’s Metro

The Wall street Journal looks at how the lives of today’s stray dogs compares to conditions under communism:

In Soviet times, dogs were barred from Moscow’s metro. Today, however, they are so common there — curling up on empty seats, nuzzling their neighbors, lounging in stations — that there is even a Web site devoted to them: www.metrodog.ru.

No Dachshunds sighted so far.
