Island of artists, eccentrics, legends, living legends and mystery. Ibiza is and has always been the center of the world in many ways according to quite a few speciaists in history. Many legendary figures came by, spent time or lived on the island. (For those interested in modern local Ibiza happenings itself or other info should visit other local sites) such as http://www.ibiza.es/ Ibiza Times, the old days is a intimate site for those who know and knew Ibiza). Ibiza has always played some kind of an important role, one way or another..Ibiza also had many street dogs in the sixties and seventies. Many writers wrote about them and some of those dogs were quite famous. They were part of everyones dailiy life and they were very social. The locals didnt like them very much and dogcatchers would come after them in the late seventies (Peter Kinsley also writes about them in his book - Bogged down in county lyric) The young Sydney who they also called king of the dogs and the emperor (for helping and saving them) and who is a son of the island saved them during several years from the dog catchers. He not only saved the Ibiza street dogs but, also the lifes of quite a few locals and foreigners . The famous dogs from la marina (Ibiza town) included i.e. FATTY, TIKI and LINDA aka the gang of three.
