This is Freezbee, she's one and a half years old and is a Shiba Inu.  A Shiba Inu is a Japanese hunting dog, in fact 'inu' is Japanese for dog. 

I met Freezbee in the village of Gorbio where she lives. Don't you just love her smile!

It's so rare to see an Afghan Hound in the south of France - and certainly not one as beautiful and in such wonderful condition as Tiago.  In fact Tiago is the first Afghan to appear on Riviera Dogs. 

This three-year old was walking in the pedestrian street of Menton where he created quite a stir (don't you love the look the little girl is giving him?) but, as befits such a beauty, wasn't bothered in the least by the crowds. But then he's a Saint Tropez dog so is doubtless used to adulation from the 'in' crowd.

Off to the Flamenco!

This may look a rather strange way of walking the dog but in fact it's sensible. This lady is waiting to get into the Flamenco Festival in Gorbio village - naturally pooch comes too - and with her own little carrying bag she has somewhere to sit comfortably - and feels secure -  whilst the performance is on.

If you want to see photos of the flamenco dancing please click on Menton Daily Photo.

Meet Titine, a totally adorable year old French bulldog who lives in the medieval village of Gorbio.  Titine and her owner, Denis, are at the Bar les Terrasses.

Looks like these two are made for each other ... lucky dog, lucky owner.

This adorable Cavalier King Charles puppy was at the Monte Carlo Historic Grand Prix earlier in the year. She's called Iggy and at the time was only a few months old. She lives in Monaco and didn't seem at all bothered hanging around near the beautiful old racing cars.

Ayla - the Black and the White

Meet Ayla.  She's a Bi-Color Standard Poodle or as the owner said, a Harlequin Poodle.  I've only ever seen one other in the south of France and she is on this blog. Ayla is only 5 months old and had travelled with her family from Switzerland for their holidays in Menton.

Wash and Brush Up Westie

My friend Carla has a grooming salon in Menton - it's near to the market in the Old Town.  I often call in to see her to chat and of course I have to snap any dog on the table. This lovely Westie had been washed, was more or less dry and is about to have a trim.  I forgot to ask his or her name but isn't he an absolute cutie ...
