We've met Maggie and Mia before. Maggie, on the left, is a red and white Irish setter - she lives in Monaco. Mia is one of my rescue dogs - she's a Bassett Ariegois (a French hunting dog) and is the scared one, scared of people that is. She loves other dogs and as you can see is checking out Maggie who is giving her a very strange look ...

Dogs are so patient aren't they?

Priska, who is now 11 months old, was lucky. She was brought into France by Tania Burrows who works tirelessly for abandoned and needy dogs and has now been adopted by the Manasse family in Monaco. She was at the Kermesse in Monaco amidst a crowd of people as part of her training in getting used to the world.
Priska is a type of dog known as a Royal Bourbon on the Ile de la Réunion

Who could resist Oliver? He's a one-year old mixed breed, totally attentive to his owner, whose beautiful lady sits by watching proudly. They were sitting having a coffee outside a café in Menton. Oliver lives in Imperia, across the border in Italy.

Tim Fountain who is looking after her whilst her owners are away.
Yesterday she visited PhotoMenton along with Tim and his elegant boyfriend, Richard Allen who has a website called Chic For Brains.
I think she enjoyed the photos...!

This is Gizmo. He's a thirsty Polish Lowland Sheepdog who lives in Menton - here drinking in Place aux Herbes. He's two and a half years old and his owner told me he is the only Polish Lowland Sheepdog in Menton.

An early morning stroll for a couple of dogs in the village of Peille. Peille is a mountain village 25 kilometres from Menton and Monaco. Here dogs can wander as they wish - and get a pat from the chef before he starts work.

This Bull Terrier and his pretty young owner were at the recent Fete de la Branda in Gorbio village. I thought I'd written down the dog's name but I can't find it. Sorry! If his owner sees this please let me know and I'll add the information. I do remember though that he is young - maybe 9 months or a year old. (He's called Hyde. Thanks Estelle)

How to sleep without putting your head on the ground! Aren't dogs clever! This little Jack Russell lives at the studio of a ceramist in Bussana Vecchia.
Note the ancient cobblesstones - still in place after hundred and hundreds of years and not so easy to walk on, even for a dog ...

Meet Ricky who is 6 years old. I met him at the Fete de la Branda in Gorbio. In fact, you can see the beautiful old copper still behind him in which the 'branda' (eau de vie or marc) is distilled.
He's a mixed breed and adorable.

This adorable Jack Russell Terrier was at the next table to me at the fabulous Beausejour Restaurant in Gorbio. In the last photo, you can see how he managed to wind himself around the table leg when I wanted to take his photo, but he was soon untangled. He's called Eliot and he's 3 years old and lives in Nice. Nice to meet you Eliot!
