Dog walker

A dog walker in Nice last night.  She has seven dogs in her charge, although two are hidden.  I nearly got run over!

Happy New Year's Eve everyone!

Shopping basket

So where does the shopping go?

Maggie is a Red and White Irish Setter who lives in Monaco and loves pulling funny faces!

This is Choupinette, aged 11 and blind in one eye. She is a 'Royal Bourbon' - a breed from the Isle of Reunion, from where she was rescued and brought into France for adoption.  Horrifically dogs are sometimes used as shark bait on the Isle of Reunion - yes, a hook fixed, often through the nose and thrown in the sea.

Waiting in line ...

A long-haired chihuahua amongst a crowd of people queuing in a Menton fish shop on Christmas Eve. Wonder if she likes fish?

Happy Christmas!

A very Happy Christmas to all my doggy friends and their humans!  (This is Bouchette, the Restaurant Beausejour dog from Gorbio)

Fetch! A happy Jack Russell terrier having the best fun on a Menton beach this morning.

This is a Clumber spaniel at the Monaco Dog Show earlier in the year.  Clumbers are, I believe, the heaviest of all the spaniels.

Not a breed we see often n the south of France although there is one who lives in Menton.

And then there were two ...

This is a different photo of the wire-haired dachshund we met yesterday - today with a second dog hanging out of his pocket!

Skull and Crossbones

Dachshunds, especially wire-haired dachshunds, are too adorable, aren't they?  This one was at Monaco Dog Show earlier this year.  He looks as if he wishes his owner would hurry up with whatever he is doing.   Note the skull and crossbones leash.

Macho Dog

He looks fierce, doesn't he?  As for the hole in one ear and the chunk out of the other one, perhaps he was used as a fighting dog in the past.  Totally illegal, of course, and despicable. He was peering over a wrought iron fence in Gorbio village.

Get me outta here!

Get me outta here!  Sometimes I call in to a dog grooming salon in Menton - the owner is a friend of mine - and so of course I have to snap the dogs.  This little bichon has just been bathed and is waiting to be dried.

Passing Strangers

The seeming sadness of the dog doesn't go unnoticed by the motor cyclist.


La tristesse apparente du chien ne passe pas inaperçue pour le motocycliste.

Helline's crooked smile

... there was a little dog who had a crooked smile ...

This is Helline, a Lagotto Romagnolo, an Italian water-dog breed.

Akita in a bag

We met this tiny Pomeranian a couple of weeks ago, when his owner posed him alone in Place Massena, Nice. Here he is being walked (carried!) home. He's called Akita.  His owner has a sense of humour!

This is one of the photos I exhibited at PhotoMenton recently,  but in black and white.
