Aside from exploring the museums, cafes and amazing sights of Paris, I seem to have taken on one other little past time for which I hold my "nephew," Riley, fully responsible--dog stalking. This started when Riley requested that I bring him back a photo of an "authentic French poodle." I also stated in my Paris Manifesto that I would pet a poodle if it looked my way. This ended up being harder than you might imagine, because seriously I only saw ONE poodle my whole trip and believe me when I say...I was looking!!!
While I would not classify many of these in my "best photos" category (animals are really hard to capture especially when you are trying to be discreet), but they represent to me a funny, quirky little side of my great Paris adventure. So here they are, the Paris pups...
Free-roaming lhaso apso on ile de la cite. Read more here.
Cisco...hangin' out in my 'hood. (He was the biggest dog I saw & he is a 9 month old puppy!) Riley can tell you more here.
I seriously think this one may be Riley and his person, Sunrise Sister. Were they perhaps stalking moi?
Not a great shot, but I think cocker spaniels have become the official dog of Paris. I saw more of them than anything else!
Monsieur Ginger, le chien. Featured today at "Diamonds."
Hard to see, but there were three of these guys!!!
Another Riley look-alike. This time with his male person.
I saw this big fellow last night near the Latin Quarter. He has his own suitcase and everything.
I'd love to know if you have a fave. (I would have to vote for the big guys myself☺.)
One more little FYI--they seem to have banned smoking inside restaurants, but dogs are heartily welcomed. I love Paris!!!
