The French love little dogs.In every Paris street and park and in every museum we visited last week in France, we saw people out with their dogs.
As we wandered around the
Louvre and the other museums I started to photograph some of the dogs in the paintings.
These marble dogs are amazing. When you think that they were carved from a great heavy block, and yet here is a dog leaping up to his mistress, caught in action.
And this dog is so attentive as it gazes up at his master.
There were pottery dogs:
And even a vast tapestry depicting a hunting scene where a huge dog, right at the front of the picture was captured back in the 1650s, having a poo.
