Busking with Rover

Street musicians know that a sweet-looking dog is good for business--or maybe they're just trying to avoid dogsitting or dogwalking fees by bringing their animals to work. 

The guitarist (and sometime tambourinist) in the pictures below is a case in point. Cheryl and Maggie encountered him--and his dog--on several different occasions, and they're happy to report that the dog was as loyal as its master was musical: They never saw the dog marching to a different strummer.

Waggin' on the waterfront

The video below is short and silly, but if you know and appreciate Bearded Collies, you'll enjoy our rear-end view of a dog who'd make a lousy poker player. (The clip was taken on a bridge along the Zattere, a promenade next to Venice's Giudecca Canal, while Maggie was interacting with a potential friend.)
