My new favorite (old) thing: Russian dogs are riding the subway

ABC News found a female stray in the Kievskaya station, and barely managed to follow her as she zipped between the legs of the bustling travelers around her to catch a ride on the Koltsevaya Line.

 

Once on board, she settled down on the floor among the feet and legs, even dozed a bit, and occasionally got up for a brief conversation with a friendly human.

I maintain the perspective that animals – not just dogs and cats – are smarter than we give them credit for.
