Jackson is my grand-dog! And a rescue dog to boot! He’s a hard act to follow…which means Parisian dogs have their work cut out for them to win my heart! But this one is ‘in the running’. Which, by the way, I rarely see a Parisian dog ‘on the run’ or even barking, for that matter. They seem to be so well-mannered. Look at this one–being ‘chic’, under/near the owner’s table, at Pizza Chic at 13, rue de Mezeries in the 6th arr. (https://www.pizzachic.fr) and, they can be found everywhere. At the cafe, of course! This one was at the SFR boutique (phone, TV, internet shop) where the owner was waiting in line for her turn and allowed him to just wander the shop. I missed the shot of him taking a snooze.
These two were on the bus:And then checking out the flowers at the Marche Saint Germain florist: At the Pressing shop (dry cleaners) down the block from me:
They are represented on trays such as the one above as my ‘featured image’ or in the window display of Bonpoint. Yes, that upscale children’s shop I have photographed for a blog post before.:Or, they do go even more high end–the Louis Vuitton windows in the 6th arr. this past Spring: In one of the ‘covered Paris Passages‘, a shop’s signage:And, I don’t need to go far. This is my new neighborhood dog at the children’s toy shop, which is really a miniature figurine factory shop. Down about a block from my apartment, this dog at Pixie and Cie is NOT miniature and seems to take the neighborhood watch seriously:
I’ve saved the best for last. I met up with a guy, who basically has a dedicated stool at the neighborhood tapas/wine bar, Freddy’s. I sat down next to him a few weeks ago and the chatter went on for a few hours. So I suggested we do a ‘Mondays with David’ (6PM, if you want to join us). He came across as ‘familiar’, but I thought it was probably because I must have seen him sitting there when I passed by Freddy’s, or was in Freddy’s.
A few weeks later, I got around to asking him his full name. And, then I ‘googled’ him. David Turecamo has been a news reporter for a number of years (decades, to be honest) now and, once you listen to him, you may recognize his voice. He did a CBS Sunday Morning piece, with a given deadline of only 24 hours. He mentions in the piece that he may be remembered more for this piece than his Emmy-award winning pieces. Orson, the neighborhood dog, is well worth a watch:
Lastly, while looking for a dog quote, I came across this article of 50 quotes (even though the link says ’25’). They are so endearing, I am sure, even a non-dog lover will find some will put a smile on his/her face:
Woof! Woof! (French translation?)
