Canis Romanus

Part of travelling, for us anyway, is a bittersweet feeling towards these little guys. On the one hand they're adorable. On the other, we miss Argus a lot. This hardworking dachshund managed to keep his bar (and most of the street) completely cat-free. Not an easy task in Rome. This little bichon seemed to understood that we were missing Argus. While we were sitting in an outdoor cafe in a crowded piazza, "Giotto" comes running over - gives me a cursory sniff - jumps up onto my lap, and leans in for a hug. Ten minutes later his owner retrieved him, looking a little disgusted and offended.
