Oscar - the winner
Most of the dogs we meet on Riviera Dogs aren't show dogs - except at the time of the Monaco Dog Show, of course - when we see lots!
I met Oscar in Roquebrune village where his owner was selling garlic (the best variety in the world), chestnuts and walnuts. In fact you can see one of the walnuts in his bed. His owner breeds French bulldogs. Oscar, now 13 years old, was used as her main stud dog and foundation of her kennel. He's a beauty too - and look at him at 13 - how wonderfully strong and fit he is. Breeders need to think of the health and longevity of their dogs. This lady obviously does.
