Boat Friday is in Venice every day!

 

In order to inform you about the ambiance around the decadent looking dog I add a part of the large painting by Italian Renaissance artist Vittore Carpaccio,The Miracle of the Cross at the Ponte di Rialto, also known as The Healing of the Madman (Italian: Miracolo della Croce a Rialto) dating from c. 1496. It is now housed in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice. The wooden Rialto Bridge looks a bit different from the bridge today, and the vaporetti and other motorboats are now more usual than the gondolas.

 

(Sorry, I cannot comment and reply on your comments today and tomorrow, because I'll take part in a seminar about literature.)

Your hypothesis is well illustrated, Philine.
Quel beau diptyque Philine!
Profitez bien de votre séminaire littéraire.
I quite like seeing the close-up and the larger setting like this, Philine. I bet you got enough Boat-Friday images there in Venice to last you the rest of your life on SC. smile

The dog looks like what I would call a pampered pooch Philine!

A great picture and I think the dog has 'the best seat in the house'...

A saucy little canine, Philine
I had to smile at the dog Philine. Enjoy your seminar.
Even the dog is wearing red so that you can notice him too.

That is a strange look on the poodle - the sidelong glance!

Enjoy your seminar.

I admire your devotion to academic matters Philine, I too have been absent, in London where a friend has been ill.
A fascinating picture and story from 1496 Philine. Looks like a high class dog

I like the sideways look of the dog; it seems to be enjoying the action on the Grand Canal. I never knew that the Rialto bridge was originally wooden.
