About the blog

I have no heavy training... Barely Elementary School. Preferred the wilderness, it became my university, but I got muddy boots and experience instead of School knowledge so my English was therefore quite inadequate. This blog is a project to improve my skills in English language.

We all have our own universe, welcome to visit mine.

Do not move Dzok !

TravelPosted by Uncle Henry Thu, December 19, 2013 11:15:12

Now have local politicians in Kraków got the idea to move the monument of Dzok in favor of yet another monument to World War II, but the resistance is massive, most people thinks that it´s better to place war monument closer castle Wawel and let Dzok continue to wait for his master .

The dog Dzok became famous in the early 1990s when his master got a stroke in his car on the busy Grunwald Roundabout (B- 7) and was taken away in an ambulance. The man later died but the dog was still there and waited faithfully for a whole year to his return (1990-1991). Eventually, Dzok accepted to live with an elderly woman, who daily has provided him with food. When she died 1998 he was sent to a home for dogs, from where he escaped after two days in captivity but he got killed the same night, run over by a train.

Many city dwellers who daily seen the dog wait at the roundabout were emotionally involved by his fate. 2001 erected a statue of the faithful dog Dzok, at Petite Fleur Czerwinski, next to the River wisla and Wavelhill . It is created by the sculptor Bronisław Chromy (who also created the Wawel Dragon). Since then, the monument has become a popular tourist attraction. A collection box in the sculpture’s plinth provides assistance to other abandoned pets.
