Pom in Waiting
Looks like a little Pomeranian (or tiny Spitz) patiently waiting whilst his owner reads a real estate magazine. Note the orange trees laden with fruit. Not long now and Menton will be celebrating the Fete du Citron.

This lovely dog is a Menton market dog. Tied up to the owner's stand and doing his job as a guard. With the Christmas rush and a busy stall, I didn't stop to ask his name. He's a beautiful deep brown and is some kind of setter, perhaps an Irish setter but the head doesn't look quite right and the colour isn't perhaps red enough. Perhaps a mix? Perhaps someone knows. In any case, he's beautiful!

Here's another photo of little Halloween, who we met yesterday. She's with her co-owner Richard (well half of him!) sitting on steps in the medieval village of Gorbio. Halloween lives in Villefranche-sur-Mer.

Next time I'll show you the photo I took of Halloween with Richard and used in my display at PhotoMenton.
It goes without saying Halloween is a star!

Olive and Jack at play ...
Don't you love it when the big dog gets down to the level of the smaller dog so they can properly play - even if it does look a bit like a fight! It's not!

First Outing for Lola
Dogs are not allowed into the Palace de l'Europe in Menton but much depends on the security guys. On the day this Miniature Pinscher came to visit 'PhotoMenton' with her owners, they allowed small dogs in, provided they were carried. So meet tiny Lola, only 4 months old and on her very first outing. She lives in Menton.

Black and white in the water
On Saturday the Festival PhotoMenton opens its doors to 110 photographers. This year my theme is 'dogs' and here's one of the photos I'll be exhibiting. If any of you are living near to Menton, do come along. You'll see so many varied and wonderful styles of photography from so many talented photographers.
See www.photomenton.com for more info.
This is Joe, the cocker spaniel, along with his co-owner, Emmanuelle. We saw him in a beautiful old car, a 1968 Renault 4L in a recent post. This was taken at the Coulée Verte in Nice. Of course Emma is the perfect model and, indeed, she ruined a pair of tights to make these photos. Thank you, dear Emma! xxx

This gorgeous dog is in fact a 7-month old puppy. She's called Lena and is a Pyrenean Mountain Dog. She lives in Gorbio which is where I met her at the recent Fete de la Branda. Isn't she fabulous!

Emmanuelle and Joe
Meet my beautiful friend, Emmanuelle and Joe, the cocker spaniel. Joe is 4 years old and lives in Nice with Emma and Guillaume.
In the smaller photo you see Patrick, owner of this stunning 1968 Renault 4L.
My birthday was last Monday but yesterday these precious friends and Sylvie organised a surprise second birthday celebration! How lucky am I? Five of us plus Joe in this car, whizzing around Nice, an enormous bouquet of flowers and of course all our camera gear. And a great lunch in the Old Town of Nice. I thought we were all back in 1968!
Thanks so much everyone! I loved, loved, loved the day.

There's something about puppy Jack Russell terriers - that are just too cute. On reflection, aren't all puppies cute!
Meet 10 month old Kiwi who lives in Menton.

I wonder if either of them won. Border collies are usually the best breed at agility.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day
Today is 'International Talk like a Pirate Day' - who knew! So I give you this tiny 'Pirate' who I'm sure can 'woof' in an 'Ahoy matey' sort of way!
In fact, this little sweetheart is called Shelley and is only 9 months old. She lives in Menton but I met her at the Sospel Agricultural Show last Sunday.

The pup with the cropped ears
This pup lives in the Old Town of Bari in Puglia, Italy. He would appear to have cropped ears, which I thought was illegal in Europe?
The last photo you see the little boy who owns him.

The Grottaglie Dog
This dog was lolling around outside a bar in the Italian village of Grottaglie in Puglia. It's a village famous for its ceramics and when I was lucky enough recently to participate in Carla Coulson's fabulous Caravan Travel Photography Workshop, this is one of the villages we visited. We photographed inside 4 different ceramics factories that day - of course they are all very small - a fascinating day - as were all the days on Carla's workshop.
This dog is probably old and perhaps not very well. Perhaps a stray who hangs around outside this bar.

This lovely dog patrols the land around the old mill in Gorbio. I don't know her name. She looks to be a setter perhaps or mix between a Brittany Spaniel and a setter?

A Handful of Dog
Don't you love the gorilla t-shirt on this macho guy and then how delicately he holds his little dog in one hand? We met in Ventimiglia. I reckon the dog is the tough one tho!
