'Ours' after two months

Some of you have kindly asked how 'Ours' = Bear (pronounced Orse) my newly adopted dog is coming along. Well here he is after two months here - he loves the garden, he plays BUT he is still terrified of any visitor and lives in fear of the someone coming through the front gate. But there is progress - and of course I'm in love!

A pat on the head

A pat on the head by a stranger for this little Cavalier who has been tied up, in the shade.  He is more interested though in watching his owner, who came back for him almost immediately.

Sheltie X 4

Gorbio village has four new residents ... well, five if you count the owner! These four beautifully behaved Shelties seem at home already on the old cobbled streets.

This is Iris, the lovely golden retriever belonging to my friend and neighbour, Agnès.  It is Agnès who corrects the French on my Menton Daily Photo blog each day. No mean feat!

Lascar, Bassett des Alpes,

This is Lascar, the new puppy belonging to Romain, the young hunter in Gorbio. He's a Bassett des Alpes (also called a Alpine Dachsbracke) The breed originates from Austria and is used to hunt wild boar and also to find wounded animals. He will be used as a hunting dog alongside Romain's other dog, Tina who you can see HERE. She's also in the third photo alongside Lascar.

Il servira  de chien de chasse aux  côtés de l'autre chien de Romain, Tina que vous pouvez voir ICI. Elle se trouve également dans la troiseme photo à côté de Lascar.
