 Chewy at the Leaning Tower of Pisa

For the first weekly photo of the year, it seems only right that I give you this set of Chewy at the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  One of the joys of traveling with the dogs is taking cute photos of them in front of famous monuments.  Some places are difficult---we didn't got shots of them in front of Stonehenge, the Colosseum, or Big Ben because of the masses of people---but this one was quite easy.  In fact, on the day we visited, there were a few other dogs romping through the green grass and not too many people around.  Chewy wasn't all that impressed with the site but he cheerfully posed for us, anyhow.

And, as luck would have it, this week's #frifotos theme is dogs.  Perfect!

I totally want to take Ella to Italy just to photograph her in front of the tower! Actually, Scott and I are planning a weekend in D.C., and he's lobbying to bring her so we can shoot her in front of all the monuments there in her service dog vest. ;-)

Ella would be adorable in front of the Tower - she's so cute anyhow. And Italy is such a pet-friendly country. When we checked into our Rome apartment, we left the dogs in the car to check it out before bringing them in and the owner immediately demanded, "Where are the dogs?" He loved meeting them - such a difference from some countries we've been in! Can't you bring dogs onto the Mall anyway? I thought for some reason that you could. If you go to New York, you should definitely take her to the Brooklyn Promenade - AMAZING views of the entire Manhattan skyline and we got tons of pictures of the pups there.
