Doreen or Uggie?

You'd think this little dog is a puppy, wouldn't you? In fact, Doreen is 5 years old.

She reminds me a bit of Uggie in 'The Artist' - slightly different markings but that same adorable face. Doreen lives in Monaco - I met her yesterday in the veterinary surgery in Cap d'Ail.

Gunja - and bone

Gunja is a cross between a Boxer and a Golden Retriever. She's the sweetest, gentlest dog and lives in the village of Gorbio.  Here you see her chewing a bone at the recent Méchoui (sheep roast picnic) - yes, the dogs eat as well as the people: there was a large dish of lamb and lamb bones, just for the dogs!

Gunja, is very polite -  here she greets friends at one of the tables. And with her owner and new baby, she says Hello to Gunilla and Alice.

Helline - Lagotto Romagnolo

Isn't she absolutely gorgeous! Meet Helline, a 15 month old Lagotto Romagnolo (Italian Water Dog) - she looks somewhat like a large miniature poodle but stockier and with a much curlier coat - really tight curls as you can see. She's cute, intelligent and a ball of energy.

Helline lives in Menton for part of the year and is the first Lagotto Romagnolo on Riviera Dogs. This breed is also known as the Curly Coated Duck Retriever. Click on the link to read more.

Get Off the Coffee Table!

Get off the coffee table!  This was taken when Abby, the Cavalier was staying here. The other dog is Mia, one of my rescues. 

Once upon a time I had a sofa and comfortable chairs - long gone since they were taken over by the dogs.  Now it looks like the coffee table has gone too.

Some dogs are just too beautiful for words, aren't they? This stunning Swiss Shepherd Dog lives in the village of Gorbio. He's two and a half years old and is called Ghost. Such gorgeous gentle eyes and such a kind expression.
