Italian Dogs

When I was single, I used to notice that while single men were not flocking to my door, most children and dogs liked me. They more than liked me, they loved me! I was like a kid-dog magnet. I have always loved children and dogs, and not much has changed.

We met lots of dogs in Italy, but this time I was traveling with Steve. Dogs (and cats) ADORE Steve. We call him St. Francis of "La Quinta". Steve is also crazy about animals. He volunteers a couple times a week at dog rescue organizations, and pets know he is their buddy.

Steve and I befriended doggy pals in three regions of Italy!
Here is Steve with Roger, a friendly boxer, who licked him for 10 minutes in a bar, and cried when we left!


Here is my buddy Bulldog in Lerici:


I made a pony-sized friend in Acqui.


There were lots of sweet dogs in Bologna.



These two Argentinian dogs figured out Steve and I were their new best friends. We would keep petting them, as long as their owner was willing to stay!


Of course the favorite Italian dog is still...

Fabulous dogs! And they have such wonderful instincts...

I got out of the habit of reading your blog while you were in Italy. Glad to be back to see all your fun posts!

I too have always attracted animals more than men, but you at least ended up with the requisite number.
I can no longer walk east on my road because there is a cat who loses his senses when I happen by and I'm afraid he'll get killed in the road.


Max has won my heart! What a cutie.
