Walking for a Green Planet

In the last post we had two Cavaliers running for charity and here we have two Yorkies promoting a Green Planet. Quite right too!

I met these two in the Jardin Bioves in Menton - they are sisters, eight years old, and are called Mlle. Louise and Mlle. Margot. Adorable, eh?

Cavaliers running for Charity

Apologies for the image being not quite as sharp as usual but I wanted to share with you these two adorable Cavaliers who are walking for charity in Monte Carlo - the same photo is on Monte Carlo Daily Photo today.

No Finish Line is a charitable event where people walk, run, stroll around a circuit created at the port.

You can do as many circuits you like or as few and at any time of the day or night and it runs for 9 days. You have an electronic tag attached to your foot (you can see the tag on the lady's back shoe) and for every kilometre run money goes to charity. The dogs have a tag fixed to their collar. Some people walk with friends and chat, others take it really seriously and aim to beat records. There is even a special 24 hour run for the most kilometres during that time - last year's winner ran 248 kilometres in this category.

The record for the most kilometres run by an individual over the 9 days has just been beaten and now stands at 200 ks.

For a full explanation go to the website - NO FINISH LINE.

This is six month old Achilles, a lovely Doberman who lives in Varese in Italy and was visiting Menton with his owners. Here he is with the beach in the background.

This cute long-legged terrier was standing with his owner at the foot of the Old Cemetery in Menton. A mix with quite a bit of Jack Russell Terrier, don't you think? He's a one-year old boy called Cookie who lives in Menton.

This tiny chihuahua lives in Menton and is called Nina - she's one year old. Her owner said she is a toy chihuahua, which I believe is called a 'mini' in France. I didn't know a smaller version of a chihuahua existed. How small can you get?!

In the photo below, as you see, Nina says Bonjour to a shih-tzu.

There's a patient white poodle on Menton Daily Photo today.

This is Scott, covered in sand and seawater, who was having the best time yesterday on the Sablettes beach.

Our recent terrible storms have left the beach littered with driftwood - heaven for a dog like Scott. He's a 9 year old Labrador mix who lives in Menton. You'll find him on Menton Daily Photo today along with a photo of the beach, showing the detritus that includes broken up canoes.

Despite the protection of his raincoat this little dog in Menton looks happy to hop up onto the step and out of the rain.

Cilla is Ted's other half. You met Ted in the last post. Cilla, like Ted, is 9.5 years old and lives in Monaco. Here she is sunning herself on the terrace. Sweet dog.
