Sniff, sniff ...

The fluffy white dog is a Coton de Tuleur and the one in the foreground is a Jack Russell mix.  They were having fun playing together by the sea at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin this morning. I didn't ask their names.  Simply because I was trying out a new lens and didn't think the photo would be any good -  but I quite like the shape they make together with the terrier's legs all over the place ... and he's got such a lovely face.

The Monte Carlo Westies

Two Westies hoping for a morsel from their owners who are having a coffee and a croissant in the luxurious Metropole centre in Monte Carlo. 

They are mother and son.  Mother in the foreground is called Twiggy and she's 5 years old. Her son is 2 and he's called Tuky.

They live in Monaco.

San the Chow

This is San, a soulful looking Chow.  She's 8 years old and posed by the fish stall in Carnoles, where her owner was working. 

Note her blue/black tongue which is typical of this ancient Chinese breed.  The Chow is easily recognizable in pottery and sculptures of the Chinese Han Dynasty (206 B.C. to 22 A.D.).

In the last post, we met little Victoria, who had been found in a rubbish bin at 4 weeks and now lives in the mountain village of Sospel, above Menton. 

This is her new friend, Tess.  Tess was bom in the house next door and Victoria's family just had to have one of the pups.  She's now three years old and as you see, a wonderfully gentle soul.

Victoria who was found in a rubbish bin

This is Victoria who, at the age of four weeks, was found in a rubbish bin in Monaco - dumped in a plastic bag.   That was in 2001 and since then has had the happiest of lives.  You can read Victoria's story and see photos when she was younger, by clicking on the link.

Victoria is now 10 years old and  lives in Sospel, a village above Menton.  She now has a canine housemate who we'll meet in the next post.

Lilou and Poupi

These two Cavaliers - two years old and half-sisters -  were competing at the Agility competition in Menton.  I'm really not sure if the little beauty in the main photo is THIS DOG (flying over the fences)  or not. What do you think?

They are called Lilou and Poupi and live in Cannes.
