Living in Paris: A Canine Perspective
Parisians are very accepting of dogs in daily life. I’m always invited along for trips to the department store, pharmacy and bank but I can’t go into museums or even most neighbourhood parks. Thankfully some parks like Tuilleries and Luxembourg Gardens have a small areas set aside just for me and my new pals to roam free. Only un toutou (small dogs) are allowed on the metro, and preferably in a carrier but we can travel in a taxi provided we call ahead and confirm. We can also ride on the big red double decked bus to catch the sights from a dogs eye view. One place I’m always welcome is the local bistro, where I position myself under the table to catch the overflow of crunchy breadcrumbs and stay hydrated with my personal water bowl. Recently I was unwell but managed to avoid a visit to the Vet as thankfully most basic dog medicines can be found in pharmacies (phew). My human parents were so glad when I recovered that they booked me a spot with dog groomer to the stars, the legendary Marie Poirer. Woof!
Did you know?
In 2005 the Paris Zoo sent 19 Guinea baboons to a wild animal park in England and the park keepers were puzzled that the animals were completely unresponsive to commonly understood commands such as lunch. After much deliberation, the keepers discovered that the baboons only understood French and solved the issue with by adopting some basic French linguistics! Très bien!
A global center for fashion, architecture and art, Paris boasts a picturesque cityscape and the renowned Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame cathedral landmarks. Shopping, dining and visiting museums are common pastimes for locals and tourists with their sophisticated pets in tow. With dogs widely welcome in hotels, boutiques, restaurants and on public transport, Paris is a popular international pet transport destination.
