Hmmmmm....not the easiest dog to photograph. All hair and he wouldn't keep still. I was lunching at Le Balico in Menton and saw this dog walking past so of course I had to get up from the table and run after him to take his photo.
He's a Hungarian Puli called Nero, which seems a good name for a black dog - he's 4 years old and he lives in Germany.
I remember when I used to show Old English Sheepdogs and would often see the Pulis and Komondors nearby - both corded dogs like this. The most important time is when the cords start to form - you have to twist them into even-sized cords else they will break. Once corded, that's it for life. When bathed I know they take a very long time to dry.
You'll find a French Bulldog at Ventimiglia Market on Menton Daily Photo today.
