Şener had seen the dog before, but apparently only during the day; he often hangs out at Şener's local coffee shop, where this random encounter at 2:51 a.m. took place.
"He comes to that street all the time," Şener told The Dodo. "I always see him by the café."
On this particular early morning, however, Şener and the dog became much better acquainted. As if compelled by the same joyful spirit upon seeing a familiar face on that empty street, the two of them reacted in the sweetest way: "We started dancing," Şener said.
