A Bearded Collie in Corsica

During a recent cruise aboard Silversea's Silver Spirit, we spent a day in Ajaccio, Corsica (without Maggie, though next time we'll dress her up in an official-looking vest and bring her along as our service dog).

While walking near the port, we saw a dog coming toward us with its master in tow:

The dog was--you guessed it--a Bearded Collie, just like Maggie (but with a different color scheme).

The owner told us the dog's name was Tigre, and he told it to pose for Cheryl, who can't resist aiming her camera at any dog she sees.

After a few seconds of wagging and bouncing (the normal Beardie reaction to attention from people) Tigre settled down and looked noble for the camera.

Addendum: We suspect that the name "Tigre" was chosen for its irony. Tigre, like most Beardies, behaved more like an stuffed animal brought to life than a predatory jungle cat.
