Thigh Bone

This is one happy German Shepherd who walks around Menton with a thigh bone in his mouth!  Here he is in Place aux Herbes.

Faithfully Yours

This faithful dog wouldn't take his eyes off the entrance to the supermarket as he waited for his owner to appear.

Sometimes I look through old photos - don't we all!  Here's Mia, a Bassett Ariégeois   - I adopted her from a refuge years ago and she died last year.  She was a lovely dog although always scared of the world because of her past. Loved other dogs though - and me!

Min Pin waiting

A little Miniature Pinscher tied up outside the bakery.  Don't worry, his owner wasn't away for long.

After the party

The parade is over, confetti and streamers litter the ground - and just a touch of sun remains on this lovely Brittany Spaniel on his way home from the Lemon Festival in Menton.

Feet ...

Feet, feet, feet ... thousands of feet, human and canine, walking to the Lemon Festival (Fete du Citron) parade in Menton.   These two French bulldogs look as if they don't want to miss it...

This dog is a real character.  Meet Gucci - a Welsh terrier who lives in Gorbio, a hill village near to Menton.

Hémy and Rosie

This is a photo I took about three years ago.   Hémy, a Havanese is on the left and Rosie, a Llasa Apso, is on the right.They live in Monaco. At the time I was looking after them for their owners and they had the best time playing with each other.

Gypsy and Halie

Look at the cuties I met in Gorbio village yesterday.   On the left, Gypsy, a Papillon mix and on the right Halie, a Miniature Pinscher.  They are currently in Menton for the Fete du Citron and come from the Cantal region of France - where the cheese comes from!

Blue Plastic

Don't you just love the home-made dog walker?

15 February 2016


This is Barilla - she's a terrier mix and is sometimes cared for by my friend Sylvie in Menton, when her owner goes away.  Note: her partially blue eye. You see this sometimes in dogs - even with half a brown eye and the other half blue.

She's named after the Italian brand of pasta!

Scaredy cat

'No chihuahuas were hurt in the making of this photo!' 

Ears back,  this little cutie is a bit scared.  But come back tomorrow and see her in a totally different frame of mind.

'Please stop texting... I'm trying to talk to you!'

Japanese Chin

Here's a breed you don't often see - a Japanese Chin.  It's a type of toy spaniel and was well-known to the Japanese nobility. It's also known for have a 'strabismus' of the eye. And no, I didn't know what that meant either! Apparently it means it has a squint! I met this little cutie in Menton.

Armful of Dogs

An armful of dogs!  On the left a chihuahua and on the right a Tibetan spaniel, a breed you don't often see around here.  I bumped into them in Menton yesterday and had to take a quick photo.

Blow Dry

This old shih-tzu has just been bathed and is in the drying cabinet at a friend's grooming salon in Menton.  Behind the glass, the warm air blows her hair dry.

Billie and ball

Billie, the Shih-tzu.  She was named after Billie-Jean King, the tennis player so no wonder she is guarding her ball!

Ted is a market dog.  His owner sells eggs on a stall outside Menton's municipal market. He's a two-year old French bulldog wrapped up against the early morning chill.

Begging Bouchette

This is Bouchette, the Bassett Hound who belongs to the Restaurant Beausejour in Gorbio.  In fact, she's sitting on the terrace of the bar opposite, Les Terrasses, hoping for a morsel from the table and not getting it ...!

Can I? Can I?

This is one little dog who adores his owner and just wants to please.  We've met Mr. Mojo before and I know we'll meet him again. Mr. Mojo lives in Monte Carlo with his owner, my friend Nicky.

Meet Basil, an exceedingly handsome Llasa Apso.  Note the smart animal print container (attached to his lead) and used to hold his 'poop' bags.  I met Basil in Gorbio village yesterday.
