Beagle time ...

A cute Beagle puppy who was enjoying the late afternoon sun with his young owner in Menton.

He's not at all sure he wants his photo taken ...

Giada - the glamour of Italy

Pink leopardskin coat, pink hair slide - the glamour of winter - she has to be Italian!

And she is. This is 13 year old Giada, whose owners will be selling bric a brac at the Broc Troc in Menton this weekend.

Hunique - the Restaurant Les Terrasses Dog

Meet 5 months old Hunique.  She's Vanessa's new puppy at the Restaurant Bar Les Terrasses in Gorbio.  Hunique is a long haired German Shepherd Dog and already is such a sweet, well-behaved puppy but is one who guards the restaurant at night.  Look at those beautiful eyes.

Meet Darius.  He's a 4 year old Welsh Terrier from Normandy, on holiday in Menton. Welsh Terriers are incredibly active dogs - it took about 8 photos to get one where he sat still for a moment. Typical of this beautiful breed.

Lily, the Springer Spaniel

This is Lily, an English Springer Spaniel who lives just along the coast in Villefranche but also spends a lot of time in Paris.  I've been caring for Lily since she was a very naughty puppy - she's still naughty even tho she's now 9 years old.  She's losing her night sight now - in fact, in low light she sees almost nothing.  She has an appointment soon with a Paris eye specialist so hopefully something can be done. 

It's not so easy, on a long-nosed dog, to get the eyes and nose both in focus.  I succeeded in the second shot but prefer the first! 

Click on the link above to see Lily as she was a few years ago.

You don't see many Australian Shepherds in Menton but I bumped into Titus along by the sea the other day.  His owner was sitting on a bench, studying and he, considering he's only a baby of six months, was patiently waiting.   Beautiful, don't you think?  Titus lives in Menton.
