  3. LOVE the dog,
    the photo,
    the title!
    But the dog's owner needs a shakeup or a wakeup call.
    Probably checking his/her messages on the cell undoubtedly...
    Let's dognap the hound while he/she is reading that cell!

  5. Too cute Merisi. Our German Shepherd goes just about everywhere with us, but I am thinking she would do better on the floor;)

  7. I love that dogs can go everywhere in Vienna. The hard part for me is holding back and not running up to pet every one that I see. Great post, Merisi!!

  11. Vreni,
    I always feel sorry for big dogs in the city. This one seems just the right size for a city place.

    Ela,

    Paris Breakfasts,
    the dog was so well-behaved, so civilized, he looked as if he could handle any situation. ;-)

    Sushi,

    Mary,
    I once encountered a giant black labrador at a coffee house, sprawled between two tables and the waiters had to step over him.They did it with nonchalance and full trays. ;-)

    Zosia,
    indeed! ;-)

    Lindsay,
    tempting, isn't it? ;-)

  12. Gavin,
    that thought crossed my mind too! ;-)

    Elizabeth,
    he sure would! ;-)

    Frances and Sara,

    Christyn,
    they seem to be a very sweet breed, indeed!

  13. And the dog is thinking " Where's my treat?"

  14. I've heard this from some friends of mine who have visited there.

  15. Marilyn,
    I agree! :-)

    Cathy,
    you may be right! ;-)

    Charles Gramlich,
    how did your friends react to the generous Viennese dog policy? I love it.

    The budding Gourmet,
    yes, he does! :-)

  16. The blossom is so beautiful and obviously you are not as affected by health and safety as we are.

    1. I still smile when I think of how long I waited for the owner to bend down and the dog to look at me.

      One of the sides of Vienna that I love, dogs are allowed anywhere except grocery stores and the like. One of my first memories of Vienna is a huge black labrador retriever sprawled in between tables at Cafe' Landtmann, and the only way to enter the place was to step over the dog. I remember also the thick blue cloud of smoke drifting in there. Thank goodness, its owner declared his cafes smokefree a long time ago now. Kudos to him!

  21. That dog is so cute!!! I love your photos, they are so elegant and refined.

  22. A great and quirky image of dog and young man. I wonder if the young man was texting??!

  23. Your wait was totally worth it to get that impish expression on the pooch. It is as if you exchanged glances and he is saying, "I know what you are doing." Love it!

    Bises,
