Publisher Comments:

They were free dogs in Paris, unfettered and alive....

Two traveling Labradors tour the City of Light in this charming portrait of Paris and irresistible celebration of canine joie de vivre. Lingering in front of the Louvre, pondering Jim Morrisons grave, befriending a poodle at Les Halles, or enjoying a baguette at the Eiffel Tower, Betty and Rita take in all the sights of Paris in this enchanting picture book. Big dogs on the trail of big fun, they visit Notre Dame, the Bastille, L'Arc de Triomphe, and the Centre Pompidou, as well as the parks, fountains, bistros, and other sights that Paris is famous for. Forty duotone photographs accompanied by brief captions capture the Parisian holiday experience with whimsical wit. As sure as the dog is mans best friend, Betty and Rita Go to Paris will charm les pantalons off Francophiles, photographers, and dog lovers the world over. Betty, age 11, is the consummate big sister and enjoys the perks of such a position, especially the lions share of all food treats. Rita, seven, defers readily, preferring attention to food anytime. This is their first book.

Synopsis:

Visiting Jim Morrison's grave or befriending a poodle, two traveling Labradors take in all the sights of Paris in this enchanting book. 40 duotone photos.
