Dogs From Rome

You remember that I blogged previously about my humans going on holiday to Rome. I wanted to show you a few of their holiday snaps. Unlike most humans, however, who take photographs of the scenery and sights, Missus has a strange habit of only taking pictures of the dogs that she comes across. So, here are some photos of ‘Roman’ dogs...


Privacy please...



Look, a Siberian Husky. Is that Khyra?



A German Shepherd outside of the Vatican. Hello good-looking!



I hope this fella hasn’t got his head stuck.



My favourite breed! A booti-ful golden retriever.



Another German Shepherd. Don’t they have Italian Shepherds?



A fuzzy ball of fun.



This guy has got his cape on. He must think he’s ‘Superdog’.



Look at him checking out the art work. Or is he just having a good sniff.



Another ‘Superdog’.


When Missus ran out of real dogs to photograph, she started to take pictures of dog statues.


A marble statue dog with its puppies.



I wonder if this was Greek Homer's dog?



This is a famous statue of the 'She-Wolf' who nurtured Romulus and Remus, the mythical founders of Rome.



A fine statue of a dog from ancient Egypt.



Missus even took photos of human marble figures... as long they had dogs with them!

Hi Homer! Very interesting post about Roman pooches. There sure were some nice German Shepherds there! I tried to get Zeke to look but he just wants to chew on our water dish.

See ya!

WOW! Imagine being able to just drop a pile in the middle of the strret. Dad would kill us, each and everyone. "Privacy, Please" how about, "Take it to the curb" Where's the sanitation department? And oh the agony. They made a marble statue of some poor ancient dog that didn't have any ears> And what's that dog with the naked guy looking at? That could be very dangerous.
