Isn't she beautiful! This is 5 month old Idylle who is a mix between a Golden Retriever and a Bernese Moutain Dog. She was in the bar in Gorbio village waiting for the Blessing of the Animals. She's on the left in the group photo.

These photos have already been published on Menton Daily Photo but in case you've not seen them, here they are. The Blessing of the Animals is an annual event and part of the Fete Patronale in the medieval village of Gorbio. There were horses, dogs, a cat and note the sheep in the second photo!
Note also Bouchette - she's the Bassett Hound in the centre right of the main photo and she isn't on a lead. She belongs to the Beausejour restaurant in the village and she brings herself to be blessed every year.

Meet Heli, who is only 9 months old and lives at the top of Gorbio village. He obviously appreciates the wet tea towel on his back. Of course, it eventually fell off but his vigilant owner kept putting it back again. Isn't he gorgeous - look at those kind trusting eyes.

Not the first time I've posted a photo of Abby, the Cavalier and Mia, the Bassett Ariegois, on my coffee table! Beautiful Abby comes to stay from time to time and Mia is one of my rescue dogs.
