This is the second time we've posted about Kont. The first time was when we said he was a clever dog - and he is a clever, lovely dog - because he could sense the earth tremors in Fethiye a while back.
Poor Kont The Dog has had a funny old life - and he is getting a little bit old now. Aww. He's been looked after by various people throughout his years (us included at one stage). He's been made better by the Fethiye Animal Rescue Centre when he was poorly, he was brought back to Fethiye and now he has finally settled on the Deep Blue Bar family.
The lovely Kont the DogIn the past, he's come home with us when we've left the bar so we got a phone call last Monday from the bar owner asking if Kont was with us. No, he wasn't.
Well, that starts you wondering then, doesn't it?
He's not with us, not at the bar, not with the owners. It was playing on our minds so we had to go for a little scout around Fethiye, round all his haunts. Nowhere. Can (pronouned Jan - or Mehmet to some), the owner of Deep Blue Bar, had phoned the animal rescue place to see if he'd been picked up and taken there again. No.
Then, on Thursday, we were on the bus coming back from Fethiye and Barry saw him crossing the road so we knew he was okay. When we got to the bar on Saturday night we gave him a big cuddle and asked what had happened. 'Oh, haven't you heard?' they asked. Can's dad was checking Can's brother Cem's (yes, pronounced Jem's) apartment after the rain. Unbeknown to Can's dad, Kont followed him inside 'his Uncle Cem's apartment' - because he loves his uncle Cem. Everything was okay in the apartment so Can's dad locked up and left...with Kont still inside. The day after, Can was outside and heard a familiar bark so he did his whistle. Again he heard the bark. Can went up to Cem's apartment and then realised poor Kont was inside. Of course he was very happy to be rescued...but he hadn't done a poo or a wee inside his Uncle Cem's house. We told you he was clever.
