Dog Stalker

My name is Marlowe...Paris Dog Walker, original art, 9" x 12"That's right.
Phillipa Marlowe.I stalk dogs... Paris dogs... Yeah only Paris dogs.
I look for em everywhere...in vitrines
At the Tour Eiffel...
at the musee...
Rain..?
Or shine? You pay me. I look for em.
I got an assignment...

Look for a black dog. A black dog at a cafe...
A black dog on rue Augereau. Yeah I found it.
I always find my Paris dogs...

I just put out my detective shingle...
That's right. ParisBreakfast Dog Detective Agency.
You lookin' for a dog lady?
You came to the right place.

I am so excited that you took a picture of a French Bulldog! (first photo). My little girl turned 9 yesterday.

You are right; there are many dogs in Paris. And, they are in the windows, too. Walking dogs in Parisian streets: what a great job!

Jill said...

Have you noticed there all mostly little dogs in Paris, maybe to fit in little flats,

Perfect occupational match...look at the cute pooches...I wonder if they have professional dog walkers like in New York, or would that be not exactly comme il fait?

"What she doe not walk her own dog?"
Adsurd!

(I typed that with a French accent.)

Love the doggies. ;-)

I love all of the French doggies!! When I got to Paris, I would love to take my little guy with me.

Paris dogs = good.
Paris dog poop = not so good.

Gail said...

I LOVED the chien stuff...to bits.
I also really liked your new shingle!

Parisbreakfasts said...

That's why they have such small, tiny doggies WENDYB...ahem

Cynthia said...

Ah la vie des chiens in Paris is not always rose!

About 90% of the parks are forbidden to them and they are very backward in dog culture compared to North America.

My Akira still enjoys being in Paris because he gets to eat baguette, sometimes with butter :D

Being the dog lover that I am, I love this post! Great photos

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Ah, Edward would look divine on the streets of Paris.

Foodwalker said...

You and your Paris dogs.
What's the scoop on their poop? Have the Parisians gotten any better at cleaning it up?

Perhaps you might consider extending your range...the the suburban American back yard...and help out poor Detective Oswald in his (so far) unsuccessful pursuit of the bird feeder thief?

Di Overton said...

I hope you watch where you are stepping when following these dogs :)
