Monaco Dog Show -Tundra


Tundra is a Spanish Mastiff who lives in Italy and came to Monaco to compete at the dog show. Just look at that amazing, massive head. I was allowed to approach - but not too close. They were bred to herd, but also to guard, after all. There are many different types of mastiff and I'll feature another seen at the Monaco Dog Show in a few days. Valázquez featured a Spanish mastiff in his famous painting, Las Meninas. Click on the link.

Velazquez couldn't have done better than your composition! Lovely portrait of a stunningly gorgeous dog.

Jilly, the Bloodhounds reminded me of a painting we own. Picture on my blog.

What a handsome fellow. What a difference between him and his cousin the Neopolitan Mastiff.
