Before going to France I spent alot of time reading blogs, websites and books about France. Carol over at Paris Breakfasts posted about all the doggies that she sees while in France. Then, I read the book Spotted in France by Gregory Edmont, in which Edmont wrote about his life in Paris changed once he got a dog. While it is a myth that the French are rude, it is true that they are a very private people. The French are happy, and friendly... with their friends. However, once Edmont got a dog, everyone noticed him. When he went to the market, the sellers started chatting with him, or rather with his dog.
This one isn't a very good picture but I had to post it as his owner noticed me taking a picture and smiled at me. Yup, that's right, I got a smile in Paris :)
This doggie belonged to the owners of Maison Zen and was usually hanging out in the walkway.
Outside Gare de Lyon, a family eating lunch and their doggie getting in on the action.
