We always considered our Papillon, Emma, to be French. We sometimes thought we might bring her to Paris. That did not happen but we took her pretty much every other place with us.
We shared our lives with her for almost 15 years and we miss her everyday. In her memory, I share with you the Chiens de Paris. The Parisians love their dogs.
Large or small, dogs cast a big shadow in the daily lives of Parisians. Dogs accompany their owners to places usually reserved for humans, such as
Parisian dogs can be seen walking about town, sometimes leading, sometimes following and often waiting, but they all certainly appear to own their space.
I read in another blog that explains dogs might be a bigger part of public life on the street as the Parisian apartments are typically very small and this gives the canines and their parents room to move.
I have learned that dogs are banned from most major Paris city parks. Parisians are very proud of their gardens and parks; to avoid the potential for crottes de chien, dogs are forbidden to enter these green areas.
Over the years we have visited Paris we have noticed a reduced threat of stepping in “IT”. People are picking up much better these days. Thank you very much!
Dogs are companion to old and young; protecting, playing and some well behaved dogs trotting along sans lease.
J’aime les chiens de Paris
Dogs can also be seen in the art of Paris.
Merci les chiens parisiens et les Parisiens qui les aiment.
Thank you Paris dogs and the Parisians who love them. ❤️
