Who would like some postcards from Paris? My GBGV Life prides itself on taking all our photos, not using PhotoShop to do anything but basic editing, but today is an exception. Being as my sisters and I are French Scent Hounds, we couldn’t resist the blog hop being held by our friends at Living, Laughing, and Barking in Our Backyard. We broke our rules, and had some PhotoShop fun. Hope on board the Air France flight with us to get started!
My sisters and I flew into Charles de Gaulle Airport right outside of Paris, France. The weather was lovely with lots of blue sky and sunshine! Mom has been to Paris many times, and always landed at Charles de Gaulle. Since she is not a fan of Paris, my sisters and I decided to travel on our own. As you can see, we all dressed up in our best French attire to match our individual personalities. These days with digital everything, we were able to make postcards from some of our own photos, which is a nice touch.
Our trip was short and sweet, just over and back. With the time difference, we were able to be there for Valentine’s Day to get these photos in the morning, and then fly back home later in the day. Flights to Europe from the US typically land early in the morning, and fly back early afternoon. While on the long flight, we had time to study up on the best sights in Paris. Each of us chose one site to visit. We had our photo taken at the sight, and turned it into a memorable postcard for all of you back home. I chose the iconic Eifel Tower. I think this is the best site in the city.
Bailie wanted to find the Arche de Triomphe. Of course, being the wild one, she had to pose in the middle of a big road full of wild driving French folks. She did survive, but I wish she had been closer to the Arche.
Little Madison loves water, and wanted to find Notre Dame because it is on the Seine River. It is a huge fortress of a church. She was hoping to hear some church bells, but all she heard was boats on the river.
Not really sure if Paris is the City of Love people make it out to be. People were not extremely dog friendly, especially since we were all barking and howling in English. The French do not like English, that much we figured out. I can bark and howl in German, but that really makes the French mad! Nevertheless, being French Hounds, it was fun to visit. We hope you all enjoy our Postcards from Paris for this Valentine’s Day! One thing is for sure – we sure love all of you, and we feel your love every day on our blog, and social media accounts. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Emma! This was a fun post. Mom has been to Paris and sent us postcards so we recognize some of the sights. You girls are looking good! Have a good day. Sleep off the jetlag! Your doodle friend Dash
It’s about an eight hour walk home from the airport, so we will sleep well. Found out Uber isn’t keen on taking three hounds for a ride. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Of all us who visited today, you look the most at home – hardly surprising!!! I think just about all the big cities of the world are worth visiting. And then leaving again… &*> Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
We have done a lot of traveling, and I used to live in Europe, so I didn’t need to spend too much time.

I think we captured the French hound pretty well.
What a well documented whirlwind trip! Thanks for breaking your rule this one time!! We love all the wonderful sights you got to see!
Happy Valentines Day!

It’s fun to try something new now and then. A fresh breath of air and a surprise for readers all in one.
That looked like great fun. We (Mom, Dad) have been to England but never to France. Happy Valentine’s Day ?
You know I was born in England and Mom picked me up there. Do you know my fur parents? Mom isn’t a France fan, but she finds England nice.
The OP Pack says
We all had so much fun in Paris too. We think we spotted you near the Eiffel Tower.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

You might have. I was the short one in the beret, LOL!
Bouncing Bertie says
What fun that you all got to go to Paris and pose in front of your favourite sights. And Bailie was so courageous, braving all those mad French drivers…
Tails Around the Ranch says
Great job with your postcards and trip, Emma and sisters. Excellent sights to visit even if the French weren’t too dog friendly. It was a fun event. Blogville has the most clever dogs, cats, bird, buns and peeps.
It was fun to go out and do something different for a post.
And nicely done, too! Fun and adorable, a big round of applause and a hearty “Aww!” for you.
Thank you. We enjoyed doing something we don’t usually do.
