Le Clos du Peyronnet. Here she poses near some of the beautiful old demijohns that appear to float on one of the pools in this magical garden.

This is Pippo, a high-energy one year old Jack Russell who lives in Italy. I met him walking through the medieval village of Gorbio where he wouldn't let go of his tennis ball and that is what he is doing here - clinging on to the ball, feet off the ground. Ideally, I'd have used a different setting on the camera so the background was more blurred but it wouldn't deal with the speed of this little dog.
Perhaps I'll meet him again one day, with his charming owners, Mauro and Dimitri - then we'll settle him down and have another go at a portrait. But then how often is a Jack Russell calm and quiet?!

Is there anything more adorable than a 4 month old French Bulldog puppy? Meet Orazio (italian for Horatio). I bumped into him a couple of days ago in the Casino Gardens in Monte Carlo. He lives in Lake Como, Italy.
This post is for Véronique, a fellow-blogger (French Girl in Seattle) who recently visited Menton and Gorbio et moi. We had such a good time together, putting the world to rights over a good bottle of rosé. (or was it half a bottle!) She adores French Bulldogs and one day wants to have one. I'm sure she will!

Biscuit is an adorable, kind dog who has really landed on her feet - or perhaps one should say 'sea legs.' I wonder if dogs get seasick?

Her young owner walks her past a stable from Oman. You can see pics of the horse show on Menton Daily Photo today.
