Agility Dogs


This beautiful border collie is waiting to compete in the agility competition in Menton.  Alongside, in the cage, is his companion - looks a bit squashed but probably OK when she lies down.

I wonder if either of them won.  Border collies are usually the best breed at agility.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day


Today is 'International Talk like a Pirate Day' - who knew!  So I give you this tiny 'Pirate' who I'm sure can 'woof' in an 'Ahoy matey' sort of way!

In fact, this little sweetheart is called Shelley and is only 9 months old. She lives in Menton but I met her at the Sospel Agricultural Show last Sunday.

Harry, the French Bulldog



French bulldogs have to be one of the most adorable breeds.  Meet Harry, who is 9 months old and lives in Monaco.

Sasha at the Blessing of the Animals



Sasha is a beautiful Irish Setter who I met in Gorbio village.  He had been brought to village by his owners for the Blessing of the Animals.

Sasha is four and a half years old and lives in Menton.

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.
