Maggie and Mia

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 ...

This sweet dog was patiently waiting whilst her owner was looking at items for sale at the recent Kermesse in Monaco.  I don't even know if this dog is a she or a he - but she looks a she to me.

Dogs are so patient aren't they?

Priska from La Réunion

This beautiful dog had a bad start  in life, a very bad start. She was born on La Reunion where sadly and tragically dogs are often used by fishermen - a hook put through their noses and then thrown over the boat and used as bait. 

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. Isn't she beautiful!
