Cool Parisian Shop Dogs

I have just returned from two weeks in Paris.  It was a photographic material-gathering trip for new drawings.  While looking for inspiration, sometimes I took photos just for fun.  Below are three stylish Paris dogs in their super-cool shops.

Most days I passed by a hairdressing salon in the Marais.  This immaculately-groomed dog was regularly in the window watching the action outside.  He was way too cool to look at me as I knelt down on the pavement to take his photo.

This little guy was on counter duty in a shop somewhere near Centre Georges Pompidou.  I seem to remember that it was a shop selling accessories – which is fitting as he looks like an accessory.

I saw this shape from a distance somewhere between the 5th and 6th arrondissement and first I wasn’t sure what I was seeing.  I went closer and we regarded one another.



Parisians sure love their dogs!  And don’t we all?!

    There is something essentially French about these dogs – their poise and self-confidence (ok, I am guessing here!) but they do look as though they are totally in command of their surroundings, a little bit snooty and very cool! I can see some great drawings emerging – its very nice to be reminded of Jacques Russell, another elegant French dog, but Julie-ised!

    So cute! I am from Florida and I am living in Paris with my dog, Estelle. I love your post. There are dogs everywhere in this city! I love that I am able to bring my dog in shops and random stores.
