Mika and puppy

Gorbio. This is Mika with one of his 10 adorable puppies.  They are a mix of American Bulldog, Ipso (that's Dad) and Mama, who is called Gandja, and is a mix of Boxer and Golden Retriever.

Not long now and they'll be looking for their forever homes.

Bientôt, ils seront à la recherche de leurs foyers définitifs.

Rough Collies used to be a really popular breed. I suppose from the days of 'Lassie come Home' but nowadays they are rarely seen.

I met this beauty in Ravello, on the Ligurian coast of Italy.  He's called Sacha and he's 3 years old.

'Ours' and the photography magazine

This is my rescue dog 'Ours' displaying a French photography magazine, Chasseur d'Images, which features an article on Laure Agneray. Laure photographs her three children and has recently published a beautiful book, ''Confiance et Reves Eveilles.' Totally inspirational and gorgeous photography.

Santa Margherita puppy

This very young puppy was being led along a street in Santa Margherita, near Portofino in Italy.  The young owner didn't know what breed he is. She said 'pastoral' but that's all she knew.  He looks as if he might have had his ears and tail cropped. Hopefully not.

Thank you to a reader who suggests he is a  Caucasian Ovcharka and indeed it is a breed who has its ears cropped.

This little dog, who lives in Rapallo, Italy, wasn't too happy at being photographed. He's certainly cute though.

Joe, the cocker spaniel, lives in Nice. 

The beautiful legs belong to his owner, Emmanuelle, who kindly agreed to ruin a pair of shoes posing for photos in the Coulée Verte in October last year.

I owe you a pair of shoes, Emma!

This is Hysathis, only 15 months old.  She is a Russian Toy Terrier.   It seems the breed was bred from the English Toy Terrier, now known as the Manchester Terrier.  Click link to read more.

A dog's need

All a dog needs, apart from food and shelter, is to be near his human ...

I think this dog is a Laekenois, a variety of Belgian Shepherd dog. Not sure tho!
