Volpino Italiano on a park bench

Volpino italiano a Venezia

Maggie is in the United States at the moment, so--until she returns to Venice--we'll update this blog with occasional photos of dogs (many of whom are not Maggie) in Italy's most dog-friendly city. 

We're especially fond of the picture above, which shows what appears to be a Volpino Italiano ("little Italian fox") sharing a public bench with its master near the Palazzo Malipiero.

According to a Wikipedia article, the breed has a long history but is comparatively rare these days, with only about 2,000 Volpini Italiani worldwide. Here's another photo:
