Alpha, who loves water...


Alpha, 3 years old, is a Berger Blanc Suisse (White Swiss Shepherd Dog) who lives in Monaco but had been in Gorbio for a run. Hasn't he the longest tongue - he's a hot dog (!) - this is before he cooled down in the area next to the washhouse in the village. Note the plastic bottle used as a tap.

You can read more about this breed - the origins of the German Shepherd Dog by clicking on the link - and for more photos of Alpha in the water and to see the washhouse, go to Menton Daily Photo today.

I always think a dog is hot when he pants like this with his tongue out. Yet I see dogs at work like police dogs and seeing eye dogs who also have their tongue out but are not over heated. I have always wondered if they are just thirsty.
