Two-tier travel going on here. Baby up top, pug below. And look how hard this young mother is working to drag the pram off the beach in Ventimiglia. We offered to help but she said she was fine. Mothers constantly amaze me with what they have to do each day.

This looks like one lucky puppy who has landed on his feet, don't you think? I'm not sure if he's a specific breed or not. Not a pointy enough face for a Jack Russell? And he looks young and will grow somewhat bigger.
This 'handover' from mother to daughter took place during the day of Street Theatre in Menton. Click on the link to see more.

A first for Riviera Dogs...this is a breed called the Peruvian Hairless Dog. As you can see he is completely hairless save for a few coarse hairs on his face.
He's called Estrello and is 5 months old. These photos were taken just at the beginning of the Corbusier walk from Cap Martin to Monaco.
Do click on the photo below to enlarge it and really see his skin which his owner likened to an elephant's skin.

When your owners are sitting on the Place du Cap in Menton watching Kids' Street Theatre the only place to be is tucked up at the back and ignore the whole thing...

You might have noticed that yesterday was the Monaco Grand Prix when the world descends on the Principality. So no surprise this dog did too.
She's called Ebony and along with her Australian owner has been travelling around the world in a camper van for 3 years. She was rescued from the Washington State Shelter where she was one day from being euthanized. She's crossed the Atlantic 4 times so she's well up to wearing a Ferrari t-shirt and posing for admirers by the Ferraris on display in rue Princesse Caroline.

Dogs have that wonderful ability to make themselves comfortable in any corner, don't they? This dog is tucked up close to the wall of the bar, near to his owner of course - and patiently waiting whilst she has her coffee and chats to a friend who stopped by her table.

Last Sunday - a very dull day but happily no rain - there was a brocante in Menton - this happens on the first Sunday in May every year with hundreds of stalls spread out through the town and along the promenade. People rummage through their attics and sell what they don't want - but also there are antique dealers selling their wares.
Little Elios, who is six months old and lives in Menton - well, he thought it the best fun to rummage in his owner's bag of toys.

Who loves pugs?! This is Tchaou, which is the name of a cartoon character in Japan. She's 4 months old and lives in Brussels but was on holiday in Menton.
As you can see in the smaller photo, she didn't want to keep still - would you at 4 months? - and so her owner kindly picked her up so I could grab a shot.
