Agillity! - the Golden

Another flying dog, this time a Golden Retriever about to land. The smaller photo shows him with the backdrop of the Old Town of Menton and in the last photo he's weaving in and out of the poles. Clever dog!

Isn't this Cavalier amazing - I never knew this breed did agility.

Here's a Riviera Dog who happens to be one of mine. This is Mia - some of you know she had a terrible life before she came here three and a half years ago. 

Now, she's in pretty good shape physically, still terrified of strangers and normally gets up and moves when I pick up the camera.  Yesterday was a bit of a breakthrough though because she saw the camera, looked at me through sleepy eyes and stayed where she was. So here she is ...

Enki, the dachshund puppy and Julien

This adorable dachshund puppy, Enki, had been brought to the Blessing of the Animals in Gorbio village by his proud owner, Julien.  Julien and Enki, who is 3 months old, live in Gorbio.

In the last photo, Enki is being admired by the owner of Google, the chihuahua we met the other day. Google looks pretty interested too!

It's so good to see a young man like Julien taking such good care of his dog.

This little Miniature Pinscher is called D'squard (without the 'e' - as in D'squared) - don't you love it. D'squard is 6 years old and lives in Gorbio village.

Like all Min Pins he's really active - I took two or three shots but it was hard to get him reasonably still and then later, there he was. standing next to his owner and her handbag on a wall. Voila!

Matching handbag too!

As you can see, he attracts a lot of attention - here being photographed by both his owner and me!
