Monaco Dog Show - the Azawakh
Monaco holds an International Dog Show each year which takes place in the Circus Tent in Fontvieille. Over the two days of the show (today was the first day) 170 different breeds are on display with exhibitors coming from 15 different countries.
Later: When I first posted this photo of such a beautiful hound, I thought the breed might be a Sloughi but it wasn't quite right... Thanks so much to Gerben van Rij who tells me he is an Asawakh, an African Sighthound - and a close relative to the Sloughi.
Here's a website to read more but you'll need to understand German.
