“Yuk, what is that disgusting smell?” I asked.
My sister chuckled and pointed to a board – “Ici, je fais ce que je veux” – “Here, I do what I want”, accompanied by the picture of a dog.
I found that lovely. Not only were there designated zones where dogs could do “whatever they want”, there were cute little signs saying so, all over the city.
The next day, I took a deep breath, ignored passing stares, and took a photograph of the board.
I went around Grenoble taking photos of all the dog boards that I could find, to the amusement (and sometimes wrinkled-nose disgust) of people passing by.
Unfortunately, I seem to have lost all my dog photos from Grenoble. So much for my nose-holding, stench-standing commitment to taking photographs.
I found two that I took in Annecy, though – here they are!
