Frenchy Friday


Only in France can you find a dog hanging out in a grocery store, clothing boutique, café or restaurant. The French worship at the altar of dogs.

La Mom took this picture at her local Monoprix store. I was très surprised to see the dog attatched to the pole and not wandering around with his owner!

Big Cheese used to dine with clients at a posh little resto called Le Matisse where he saw on several occasionsYves Saint Laurent at a table with a very special guest - his dog! A dish of food was even laid out for the chien too.

That's sooo French, n'est-ce pas?

I took this picture at the Galeries Lafayette Home store. Leave it to the French to dedicate a holiday display widow to dogs. Chic!

My husband and I were in Paris at a little bar and a LARGE dog kept coming in and out of the joint. It had it's own door, so obviously, it lived there! I think that was only one of a few large dogs we saw. Mostly those little yappy ones. (Sorry, not a big fan of little yappy dogs.)

Lol, dogs makes a good accessory for some. I was once in the grocery store and saw a woman with her furry friend, dressed in a jean jacket, sitting in the front spot of the cart (where kids are suppose to sit, or your handbag). Some dogs gets the best treatment, lol.
