Brocante - The Stallholder's Dog


So many of the stallholders have dogs. When I asked this lady if I could take a photograph she was delighted, but as you see, she looked down, eyes almost closed: if she couldn't see me, I couldn't see her. She wanted the concentration to be on her adored dog. The dog is old - notice the growth on his head - the lady assured me it's just a 'fatty lump' not serious. He's a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and something else - she didn't know what. Certainly he's bigger than a Cavalier. You can see another photograph of this lovely dog on Riviera Dogs.

  4. He's a cute little dog and perhaps he Cavalier KC Spaniel was crossed with a small English collie?

  6. He seems to have posed for you! He reminds me of the old Staffordshire porcelain spaniels that one often finds at the brocante. A lovely photo!

    I wonder what it is? When I first saw the picture I thought this was an old dog. He doesn't have the gray hair and other than the lump looks like a young kid. Almost. Whatever "almost" is makes him just look old to me. I looked at his other picture and he looks younger there.
