PROTEAS

AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE IS MY LITTLE KING AND IS CALLED PROTEAS. HE IS VERY PLAYFUL AND JUST PERFECT WITH EVERY SITUATION. OUR ONLY DISADVANTAGE IS THAT WE CAN NOT SAY NO TO FOOD, HE DOESN'T TURN ANYTHING DOWN EVERYTHING YOU OFFER IS WELCOMED BY HIM. HE LIKES TO TRAVEL A LOT BUT HE DOESN'T LIKE TO BE YELLED AT WHENEVER WE HAVE TO STARTS TO GET ANGRY. HE LOVES FAMILY AND ALWAYS WELCOMES EVERYBODY WITH A HAPPY TAIL.

CAUSE YOU ARE ASKING ABOUT HIS NAME I LENT IT FROM AN ANCIENT GREEK SEA MONSTER.PROTEAS WAS A SEA DAEMON IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY. SAILORS CALLED HIM "OLD MAN OF THE SEA", AS FOLKI, NIREA, TRITONA AND HE WAS PROTECTOR OF THEIR TRAVELS.AS HOMER SAYS HE WAS POSEIDON FOLLOWER AND KNEW ALL THE DEPTH AND SECRETS OF THE SEA.HE WAS POSSESSED OF FORETELLER CAPABILITIES AND COULD TURN IN EVERYTHING HE WANTED, ANIMAL, PLANT, BIRD, EVEN FIRE OR WATER. ACCORDING TO THE LEGEND PROTEAS HAS AN EASTERN BACKROUND. SOME SAY THAT HE CAME FROM FOINIKI ALONG WITH KADMO WHEN KADMOS WAS SEEKING FOR HIS SISTER EUROPE WHOM ZEUS HAS KINDNAPPED. PROTEAS FINALLY REACHED AS LONG AS PALLINI HALKIDIKI. THERE HE MET KING OF SITHONIAS KLITO WHO HELPED HIM CREATE HIS OWN KINGDOM, SENDING AWAY FROM VILSATIA, TERRITORY OF THRAKI, THE VICIOUS RESIDENCE. KLITOS ALSO GAVE HIM HIS DAUGHTER XRISONOI FOR WIFE.

PROTEAS LIVED PEACEFUL IN HIS KINGDOM WHEN A TRAGIC HAPPENING SHAKE HIM. WHEN HERCULES PASSED FROM THERE FOUGHT WITH PROTEAS TWO SONS POLIGONO AND TILEGONO WHOM KILLED. PROTEAS COULDN'T BARE THE LOSS AND FELL INTO THE SEA. GODS GET PITY OF HIM AND MAKE HIM IMMORTAL GOD OF THE WATER. SAID THAT PROTEAS WAS EXPRESSIONLESS NOR TALKING NOR LAUGHING EVER.

FROM ANOTHER LEGEND WE LEARN THE HOME LAND COULD ALSO CONSIDER EGYPT. IT IS SAID THAT FROM THERE PROTEAS CAME TO THRAKI WHERE HE WED ΤΟ Α NYMPH KORONI AND BARE WITH HER TWO SONS. BUT HIS SONS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE POWER WHICH HAD IN THEIR HANDS AND WAS CAUSING DISJUSTICE . THEY FORCED TRAVELERS TO STRUGGLE WITH THEM AND IN THE END THEY KILLED THEM.PROTEAS DISCUSSED BY THEIR BEHAVIOUR AND FILLING ASHAMED ASKED FROM POSEIDON TO SENT HIM BACK TO EGYPT. ΑGOD HEAR OF HIS CLAIM AND DECIDED TO HELP HIM BY MAKING A ROAD TO EGYPT. THE ROAD WAS PASSING OVER THE SEA AND PROTEAS COULD REACH TO EGYPT WITHOUT BEING WET.

Beautiful Proteas
by: Pics & Tics

Hello Archodea in Greece!

Greece is one place I've wanted to visit for years. Your name sounds so ancient Greek too. Love it.

And Proteas, what a beautiful dog! Jack Russells are loved around the world aren't they? He looks like he has a strong Jack personality.

Speaking of feeding him everything, we once fed our Jimbo pork chops not thinking he would swallow the bones whole. He did. He was at the vet for surgery the next day.

So watch out for the bones. Jacks can be ferocious eaters as I'm sure you know already, yeah?

Great dog.
