It’s quite striking how many people with dogs you see around here, in the south of France. Perhaps mainly because of tradition, and in part because there are many elderly who like to keep one. The multi child family model also helps, because once you grow two or three kids, an addition of a small dog doesn’t make a lot of difference to your lifestyle…
Walking your dog is a great duty – ritual, particularly pleasant if the weather is fine, which is usually the case on Cote d’Azur.
It helps you socialize and enjoy life in the open air.
At times I can’t help thinking that some people go out just to show off their favourite canine friends.
But the nicest scenes happen, when you see the owners and their dogs behave, as if they were having romance.
