Running and jumping this way and that, walking until you’re out of breath, and still time to pose for photos!
Last weekend we had a lovely stroll up Mont Colombier in the Bauges Massif near Chambery. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.
The dog that isn’t Bruno is a Maremmano; he lives up on the hill to look after the herd of Goats. He spotted us from miles away and erupted in to a frenzy of barking. The closer we got, the calmer he got and as we passed him he was only too happy to let us walk by – clearly our names were on his guest list after all!
A few months ago we welcomed the arrival of a beautiful little Lagotto Romagnolo puppy. He is an Italian truffle finding water dog, and is most definitely brown in colour (most of the time). There was therefore no competition for names, he was quickly dubbed “Bruno” – formal title Mr. Broon!
Here are some photos showing how quickly he is growing up.
