    Paddling Pointers and Poodles?

    by janetanne Written Aug 9, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most beaches in Greece are not 'pet-friendly,' to say the least for the Greek people themselves. Fortunately, more and more Greek families are keeping dogs as pets and even showing them in various dog shows throughout the year. My friend, Akis, is one of the first 'official Greek judges' in Greece and is an avid hunter and dogbook author! Needless to say, where he goes, go is dogs! Luckily for them, they have free reign at the beach in Viethi! Everyday, Akis takes both his hunting crew and the two family house dogs, Beckam the beige poodle, and Lucy the lovely Standard Schnauzer and keeper of the Doors (both in Spetses and Viethi) to the sea for their afternoon dips!
    Who would have believed that Pointers, not known for having webbed paws as the Black Labs, would take to the water like ducks???!!! Two of these seen in this pic, even swam out to open sea one day to a small island in open water, and had to be rescued by boat!!! So, keep your eye on your dog if it goes into the sea for a swim unless you have a fast boat for a rescue if necessary:):)

    This Pool is Too Cool!

    Not everyone in Greece likes to swim in the sea; especially when the winds are blowing the sea is covered with white caps and sailors are safe in port! This beautiful pool has the best of both worlds; the water is pumped up from to the pool from the sea. No need for chlorine here! Float easily and relax:):)

    Remember my friend's lovely house in Spetses? (see the green door on my homepage) Well, they are so lucky to have inherited from their art-collecting uncle and godfather, a hidden treasure of a house that was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright! This was the first house built on the small, round peninsula in Viethi, that can be seen from the top of the hill as one decends along the narrow dirt road leading to the sea. At first glance, one would believe that the shrubs and rocks surrounding this wonderful house, are all naturally occurring; but, everything had been artificially placed around the house to compliment and enhance the natural look that Wright so taught his students. The results speak for themselves!

    Anyplace in Viethi where you can see the sunset on the sea, is great! Of course, being close to the shore is even more romantic. Preferably, one should enjoy this in the company of a person that appreciates both the atmosphere and the mutual company! Keep you eyes on the changing colours:):)

    Dress Code: Anything and Nothing, depending on who is looking:):)

    Watch out for the local Sheep Herder in the Spring time, for you may, you just may, see the famous VT SHEEP proto-type!

    Local architectural designs are influenced by the sea. This particular house has recently been built and reflects perhaps the owner's connection with one of the nearby islands; Tinos perhaps or Tzia? At any rate, the colours blend nicely with the landscape and make for a picturesque site.
