DOG LOVERS




Medici dogs and their keeper - a court dwarf.

In the background, the Boboli Gardens of Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy.
Dogs resting in a Louix XV sitting room. Note  screen in front of fireplace - it must be summer. A hunting dog sits on a much-sat-on bergère, another lies on a cool, tiled floor. 









My dogs resting in London and playing in Patmos. Their portrait by Hugo Guinness.
