Xtase - Milou
The doggy love-of-my-life was an American cocker spaniel called Milou. Of course, I loved all my wonderful Old English Sheepdogs, and all the rescue dogs since, but Milou shared my early years in France and we grew so close. I've never forgotten him. He lies under a rose bush in my garden with his ball near the roots.
This is Xtase, a girl, and bred by the same breeder as Milou - Laurent Pichard in Switzerland. She could be Milou - or at least his sister.The snood (I think it's called) is to protect her long ear before going into the showring at the Monaco Dog Show.
