Ted, the Westie and Cilla, the Scottie, are saying at Pension Milou at the moment. When their owners first called I said 'No.' I love both breeds but have had bad experiences in the past with them being snappy with other dogs. So 'no' it was. Later, my vet called and asked if I'd reconsider and she confirmed they have wonderful temperaments - and goodness, they do. These two are angels.
They were bred in the UK, have been living in Las Vegas for a while but now they live in Monaco. We'll meet Ted's other half, Cilla, another time.
And how cute is Ted? That's Roxy, the Cavalier, in the background, by the way.

Have you noticed how, when you get a Yorkie's attention, it can put its ears back? Really saying...'ok, what do you want?'
That was the case with this little one who was out walking along the sea at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin one day. I took it last January and can't for the life of me find where I wrote his or her name.

Those eyes would stop a sheep at 50 metres, wouldn't they?
This young Border Collie (she's one year old) lives in Beausoleil, which forms part of the border of Monaco and France - doubt she'll find any sheep where she lives...
Her name is Gina and she lives with her owners, a lovely young couple who were walking her in the hills around the medieval village of Gorbio.

This is Ayron, a 6 year old Cane Corso Mastiff, taking a drink out of the fountain in the medieval village of Gorbio where he lives with the little bichon you see in the smallest photo.
Later, Boutchette, the Bassett Hound who is one of the Restaurant Beausejour dogs, flirts with him!
To see a very different photo of this fountain - decorated for a wedding, please click on the link - last photo on page.
Sorry, photos could be better but hopefully you'll still enjoy seeing this lovely dog.
This link tells you about the Cane Corso Mastiff, a breed from Italy.

For anyone that follows my Menton Daily Photo blog, they will know this was taken outside the Beausejour restaurant in the medieval village of Gorbio - the pot in the last photo is a giveaway.
This adorable bundle is 7-month old Nourse, a little girl who was born and lives in Gorbio. She is probably a mix of Yorkshire terrier and Shih-tzu but as her owner said, you never know with the village dogs!
