I'll Have the Kibble du Jour

The first time I went to Paris, I couldn't get over the fact that dogs were everywhere. They were in the stores, the buses, the trains, and the restaurants. It was bizarre. Especially for someone like me, who didn't have a dog at the time and found it very strange to sit next to someone else's dog in a restaurant.

On my more recent trip to Paris, I expected to see this again, but only encountered one dog in a restaurant. He was happily eating french fries from his owner's plate. My dog loves french fries, too, but I cannot imagine taking him to a restaurant. He would be straining against his leash and devouring foods off of everyone's plates.

He is so not French.


  1. Haha my dog would be the same way as yours.

    Sometimes I wonder if the dog makes the city or the city makes the dog. In other words, is Paris more accommodating of dogs, or do dogs learn to behave better in Paris because they have to / are given more opportunity to?

  2. I'm with you on this dog is a peasant with really bad manners.
