I Cani (ed il Gatto) of Florence

Perhaps it is because I miss my own pup so much when I travel without her, but I often find myself photographing dogs when I travel.  And Italians love their dogs!  These are some of the cani (dogs) I've photographed in Florence lately.

This charming Scottie was taking her owner for a walk through Piazza della Signoria, a popular place for dog-walking.











I've often wondered if these two photos are of the same dog...
This woman is as chic as her dog...
and this sweet kitty was hanging out in the cafe at the Pitti Palace on a chilly winter day.

This sweet pup lay on the sidewalk while his owner worked the crowd...

But they had this tender moment together, too...
And, finally, here's the lovey dog I often have to leave behind:
You can see why I miss her!

Oh, great pictures! And here I thought I was the only goof who took random pictures of strangers' pets! :)

I had to double-take--that cat in the window looks just like ours! Ah, the Europeans have superior style all the way.

Awwww, sooo cute! How could you ever leave that sweet face? ;)

We end up taking lots of pictures of animals too as we roam the world.

The only thing I do not like about all the dogs in Europe is all the poop on the sidewalks! ;)

I wish they had more rules about picking up after wards, so one does not have to dodge so much while walking about.

Welcome back! If you haven't already, I hope you'll subscribe to my RSS feed so we can stay in touch. Ciao!
