The baby and the dog

Le bébé et le chien

English version below the pictures

Alix, un an, était chez sa grand-mère Carole (notre fille aînée Carole, la “duchesse”) il y a quelques jours. Elle joue par terre près des chiens. L’un d’eux, un jeune golden retriever du nom de Roma, s’intéresse à Alix et semble plein d’interrogations sur ce qu’Alix tient dans sa main.

Alix ( one year old) and Roma the dog

Alix, one year old, was at her grandmother Carole’s house ( our oldest daughter Carole ,the “duchess”) some days ago . She plays on the ground by the dogs . One of them, a young golden retriever called Roma, is interested by Alix and seems full of interrogations about what Alix holds in her hand .

Mais la main d’Alix est vide . Pas de nourriture mais elle caresse le nez de Roma, la chienne.

Alix caresse le nez (nose) of Roma


But Alice’s hand is empty . No food in it but she pats dog Roma’s nose.

Est-ce un baiser affectueux du chien ou ce dernier lèche-t-il le front d’Alix ? “Cette petite Alix est du pur sucre”, pense Roma !

Romaaa licks or kisses Alix ‘s forehead ( Roma lèche ou embrasse le front d’Alix)

Is this a loving kiss by the dog or is this last one licking Alix ‘s forehead ? “This little Alix is pure sugar” , Roma thinks !

Puis, un temps de pause: on s’assoit et on attend, tout en réfléchissant.

Reflection Reflexion

Then, a break: we sit and we wait while thinking.

Puis le jeu recommence et ainsi de suite ! Une éducation mutuelle. Nul doute qu’ils ne s’oublieront pas.

Then the game starts again and so on! Mutual education. No doubt they will not forgot each other.

    ooh this really is too cute, so grateful you all shared! Nice to have a real family post with Carole and Janine contributing, great team effort 🙂

    What a precious story, Michel. I haven’t been on WordPress for so long! It isn’t due to lack of interest; more lack of time. But I think of you and Janine and the rest of the family often. Alix is so sweet, and I do love retrievers of all sorts (Golden, chocolate, & Labrador). They are such beautiful dogs, and are normally of such a gentle personality. Are you and Janine doing well?
    Love always ❤ Carolyn

    So cute! And the other dog is in dream world!

  11. Sweet Sweet Sweet! Nothing more wonderful than a baby and a doggie being friends! 🙂 They can learn so many important things from each other…trust, love, acceptance, friendship, understanding,
    compassion, patience, respect, etc! 🙂
    Growing up our kids had a doggie…a Golden Retriever…it was SO wonderful! 🙂
    Love the photos and your captions/words about the photos, Michel! 🙂
    Roma found out Alix is “sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what little girls are made of…”
    (((HUGS))) ❤ 🙂

    This is the most charming post I’ve read in a long time. Thanks so much. We had a lot of pets through the years. My favorite pets were dogs, and my very favorite dog was Mindy. She was a medium sized black mutt, but so lovable. The only pets I have now are 2 parakeets. They belong to my youngest daughter. I am bird sitting them to protect them from their household cat.
