  1. Loukanikos is his name .. in English = Sausage .. i had to check my sources … Kanellos = Cinnamon was a former legendary freedom fighting one .. who passed in July of 2008 .. he deserves respect as a fallen brother ..so i changed the post .

      • I have a maxim .. until i settle down i won’t get any pets .. not fair to move them around .. but i am going to Greece shortly ..and was wondering if he might need a good home ..with lots of attention .. some people have pets but don’t do anything with them just food water and walks ? not such a great lifestyle …

      • agreed, the reason i had so many was due to economy, people losing jobs, etc … and it was not fair to their pets. i found all a good home except the one i have now. she has major health issues so she stays with me.

    • This is great to know .. 😀 we are Huge ‘Louk’ fans .. such an Inspirational Dog .Thank you for your comment .. i will add the website link to the post … in these times of global tragedy a hero has appeared .
