Dogs of the World

Happy Tuesday to all! I thought I’d post something fun today. After enjoying this collection of silver screen actresses with their dogs (thank you, neo-trad!), I felt inspired to post pictures of several furry, four-legged companions I saw in Seattle.

While I was looking through my photo library, I realized I’ve snapped pictures of dogs all over Europe and the U.S. I culled through thousands (thousands upon thousands) of my old photos and pulled all the dog photos I’ve taken on my trips.

And yes, this is how I spent my weekend—looking through old photos as dishes piled up in the sink. Oh well.

If you love dogs and travel as much as I do, I think you’ll get a kick out of these. Enjoy!

    My fave is the one sitting on the bench with the lady reading the paper in Bordeaux. I’m a fan of large breed dogs but something about the whole scene of it is really engaging/appealing :)
