A couple of years ago , I went on holiday to St Jean Cap Ferrat in the south of France. The owner of the hotel we stayed in had a French Bulldog called Rita, who had the most expressive face of any dog I have ever met. My son always reckons Milo is scowling, smiling, sad etc. but to me his expression always looks the same – slightly bewildered. Rita however, has perfected a wonderful look of disdain as if all the comings and goings at the hotel are far beneath her notice.
