Japanese Chin

Here's a breed you don't often see - a Japanese Chin.  It's a type of toy spaniel and was well-known to the Japanese nobility. It's also known for have a 'strabismus' of the eye. And no, I didn't know what that meant either! Apparently it means it has a squint! I met this little cutie in Menton.

Armful of Dogs

An armful of dogs!  On the left a chihuahua and on the right a Tibetan spaniel, a breed you don't often see around here.  I bumped into them in Menton yesterday and had to take a quick photo.

This old shih-tzu has just been bathed and is in the drying cabinet at a friend's grooming salon in Menton.  Behind the glass, the warm air blows her hair dry.

Billie and ball

Billie, the Shih-tzu.  She was named after Billie-Jean King, the tennis player so no wonder she is guarding her ball!
