Show & Tell: On the Walls in Paris

June 15, 2008

I’m a newbie to Show and Tell, but there’s no time like the present. So, here’s my first installment.

Parisians love their animals, perhaps more than their children. I saw some of the most well-behaved dogs in Paris that I have ever seen – all off the leash, but completely under control. The children should have been so well-trained! I found this love of animals in the street art and posters. Here are two of my faves:

I love this jaunty little spray-painted kitty. He even has little paw pads! I just think it’s wonderful. So kitty-esque.

I imagine this kitty is thinking, dude, I am so going to kill you when you put me down. That tongue? I’m licking my chops for dinner of YOU. And the pooch, so cute. I think the translation is: Come Adopt! Doors Open All Day May 17 – 18.

In other news, I was distressed – but not surprised – to see that G_____ has an adoption pending (and it’s not with us. We haven’t even heard from the matchmaker yet). The important thing is he is getting a good forever home. Our dog will come!

    I don’t even LIKE cats, but I do like that first print.

    Hope you’re doing all right about G.

    What a lovely spray painted kitty – it’s quite amazing really what can be done with patterns – after all there is no definitive outline to that kitty, but we still see it!

    When I was last in France a few years ago, I surprised to see that they allowed people to bring their dogs to dinner in a restaurant! I love the French!
