The pup with the cropped ears


This pup lives in the Old Town of Bari in Puglia, Italy.  He would appear to have cropped ears, which I thought was illegal in Europe?

The last photo you see the little boy who owns him.

The Grottaglie Dog


This dog was lolling around outside a bar in the Italian village of Grottaglie in Puglia.  It's a village famous for its ceramics and when I was lucky enough recently to participate in Carla Coulson's fabulous Caravan Travel Photography Workshop, this is one of the villages we visited. We photographed inside 4 different ceramics factories that day - of course they are all very small - a fascinating day - as were all the days on Carla's workshop.

This dog is probably old and perhaps not very well. Perhaps a stray who hangs around outside this bar.

Ipso, American Bulldog


This lovely dog is called Ipso.  He's an eleven month old American Bulldog who lives in Gorbio with his friend Gunja.  We met Gunja before so click on the link to see him. Gunja is taking a nap behind Ipso in the bar in the village.

Catalan Sheepdog


This is a Catalan Sheepdog I met in Cours Saleya in Nice.   The breed came originally from the north of Spain. Note the pigmentation on his tongue.

On patrol


This lovely dog patrols the land around the old mill in Gorbio. I don't know her name.  She looks to be a setter perhaps or mix between a Brittany Spaniel and a setter?

A Handful of Dog


Don't you love the gorilla t-shirt on this macho guy and then how delicately he holds his little dog in one hand?  We met in Ventimiglia.  I reckon the dog is the tough one tho!
