Le cimetière animalier d'Asnières

In his book on Paris Miroslav Sasek tells of a cemetary for DOGS! Having never seen a pet cemetary before I was impressed by how much care & attention the French lavish on their pets even after death!
Most of the graves have a photo of the deceased on the tombstones & sometimes sculpted tributes to the cherished pooch. Often the name doesn't seem to quite match the photo! My favourite is Ulysees the poodle pup!

LOL You know I post drawings of dogs on my blog quit often, but this is in a way both morbid and hillarious at the same time...not nessasarily for the same reasons either. lol Great work on this blog! Your art is a real inspiration!
