russian commuter dogs

my very favorite recent international news story is about moscow's commuter dogs:

"The clever canines board the Tube each morning. After a hard day scavenging and begging on the streets, they hop back on the train and return to the suburbs where they spend the night."

there is a monument to a stray dog who was killed in one moscow subway station, a group of zoologists studying these dogs, and even a russian website devoted to metrodogs.
