All glory comes from daring to begin.

Bob , who has become totally smitten with Texas god daughter, wakes up to the fact that she may be leaving. He catches sight of a wheelie bag and does his despairing soft shoe shuffle dance. Sophie, who has not be smitten by the presence of Texas god daughter, remains aloof.  As far as Sophie's concerned there's only room for one princess in this household.

At the airport cafe a sheepdog waits on the concourse while his master goes for a beer and a bowl of water. Aged master and sheepdog then settle down at a table to enjoy their separate libations. The master wanders back into the cafe for a croissant. This is then shared with his furry companion. His companion gets the curly ends. Both, in their own ways, exude happiness.

Here's some interesting reading . You can be sure not one of these will make it to deepest France profonde : http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/08/12-sf-obsessions-new-york-hasnt-discovered-yet.html?ftcamp=crm/email/201484/nbe/AlphavilleHongKong/product

Do ALL dogs in France get croissants for breakfast?
I need to know.
Toodle pip!

Bertie - Croissants are a mandatory part of all French dogs diets.

We wonder if drones will require flight engineers in the future, so they don't hit each other.

Dogs in airports--so civilized.

Is that Bob in mid soft shoe shuffle in picture 1? I am sure a few croissants will ease the separation from his new girlfriend.
I am getting old; my eyes glaze over at the mention of Apps. I am beginning to understand why my Mother continues to refer to her (predominantly ignored) mobile phone as the walkie talkie.

Poor Bob, just as soon as he's enjoying the attention of his house guest, she is off again....no fair...his soft shoe shuffle dance says it all.
Sometimes I think the world has too much technology, but then I remind myself that others unlike myself thrive on all the latest gadgets, apps and pc related gaming programs.

The picture of the soft show shuffle reminds me of Charlie Brown's Snoopy.

Poor Bob! I hope the object of his affection returns soon!

Ha! Just as I was watching a story about drones on the news!

A picture of the Toulouse airport building: Is it possible, I dared hope, that we might finally see the video of Bob and Sophie operating the automatic doors?


But the soft shoe shuffle is pretty neat.

How funny that Sophie's piqued!

Love your photo of Bob. Sophie's waiting for a young, attractive, indulgent male guest to wrap around her paw.
Don't even say the word drone. There goes any bit of privacy we think we have. Your photo in dressing gown, hair askew, chasing a dog at 3A.M. ends up as the laugh of the day on a morning talk show. Good gracious!
