This little poodle has the most wonderful eyes and expression, doesn't she? So direct, so trusting, so interested.
She was on holiday in Menton from Belgium - she's two and a half years old and her name - Bijou - means jewel. She is well-named.

There are three dog beaches in Menton and on this day, there were loads of dogs. This little one, tucked up close to her owner and watching the swimmers in the sea.
Maeva is a mix of a Yorkshire terrier and a Poodle and you can see it, can't you? Bright as a button at ten years of age, Maeva lives at Le Touquet.

This lovely old dog was happy to flop down whilst I took her photograph. She's 14 years old which is a really good age for a Dalmatian. She has her aches and pains of course but she manages very well.
Camilla lives part of the time in Milan, with her charming Italian owner. The rest of the time she is in Menton - overlooking the sea in Garavan - so she doesn't have far to walk for her morning stroll.

Snoopy is waiting with his owners for the Marathon to pass by. This is a 10 kilometre run along the beachfront - Menton to Roquebrune and back - that took place yesterday.
Snoopy, a mix of a spaniel and a pointer, is a male of 8 years and lives in Cannes. It was busy in Menton yesterday but not nearly as crowded as it would have been in Cannes, where the Film Festival is currently taking place.

How adorable is this little dog! Millie is only 4 months old and lives with Boulli, the dog we met last time. You can see them both in the smaller photo, taking in the Tourism office of Menton - (not a good photo but shows how tiny Millie is).

You can almost hear this little dog saying... 'I'll pose with the yachts in the background, as befits my beauty. And if you don't think I'm beautiful enough, then I'll put my head on one side so I look really cute.'
This little Maltese Terrier (Bichon Maltais in French) is called Chippie. She's 3 and lives in Menton. Her owner is a great lady who sells crystals of all sizes and colours. She has a shop in the pedestrian street of Menton but also a stall not far from the Place du Cap, which is where I took this photograph.
