I do not have dog, have never had a dog, but three cats, so I suppose to compensate I take photos of dogs whever I see them and each photo has a little story behind it. Mr. Swiss had to pick our car up from the garage after the annual service, and the garage was now on the outskirts of town in another village. He deposited me in a street cafe to wait and after I had finished my drink I took a walk through the village. I was walking across a bridge over the River Emme, whe I met a man with his dog.Now if you see a dog like this you must take a photo. It is a British bulldog, a real genuine one with family tree and everything.Yes I had a very interesting conversation with the dog’s owner.
As said, I have many interesting pictures of dogs, some sweet,some pretty and some probably knowing who their ancestors were, all on a document of course to prove it, but this dog has a special mention. He was accompanying a young lady in the supermarket who obviously had a sight handicap. She could see, but had to hold everything very close to read the prices and so the dog waited patiently until she was finished. I had never seen a blind dog in action and so I asked the lady if she would mind if I took a photo of the dog. She was very nice and said of course. This dog deserves a medal and has a special place here under the simple heading “Dog”.
