Benny is an immaculate 5 year old white Scottish terrier. who I passed on the way to the Fete du Citron in Menton. Of course I had to stop and chat to him and his owners as they rested on a bench by the sea. Benny and his family live in Luxembourg and are in Menton for the festival.
I thought he was a Westie with a long foreface and understood his owners to say he was a Westie but am now assuming I'm wrong, so have changed the words here.

Meet Tina, she's a three and a half month old hunting dog (she's a mix of hunting dog and terrier) and is being trained to hunt sanglier (wild boar). She lives with a young hunter in the medieval village of Gorbio. As you can see she does what all good hunting dogs do - walks along with her nose glued to the ground!

Some of you will remember Fanny, the little poodle, who was abandoned outside my gate nearly three years ago. She was in a sorry state at the time, an old lady of 13. As you see, she is in much better health now although she still has problems including a dodgy heart. She's a happy camper though and now that she barks less, I'm a happy camper too ...!
She's found an adorable friend in little Emma who is the daughter of the family who own Paisley and Raffa, the golden retrievers we saw in the last post.
When they collected their dogs, Emma fell for Fanny and it seems the feeling was mutual.
