    Cafe chairs: very hard to pick three!! Thought you’d include the ones at Momartre that straddle the curb. But many good options. 🤔

    Dog: I know especially with the dogs, it’s almost more the whole picture than just the dog. For example one of the dogs is glancing up so expectantly hoping for a morsel. Most are on the ground but some have the privilege of their own seat at the table! Another obviously either a puppy or miniature dog that the young girls are holding onto- who doesn’t love a pup?! I guess you didn’t get the dog inside the mall; I thought that was pretty unique. Number four looks like it’s smiling! Fun fact, photo 1 has Bernie in the window and that bread 🥖 I miss so much!! I’m drawn to 9 for some reason but will let the boys decide.

      So what exactly are your votes? I’m confused.

    Too many to choose. But thanks for all the pictures.. I have to go to Paris soon, its been too long. And been too long to visit family in Brussels.. if I really had to choose the chairs, I love the more traditional ones. and probably 1 or 4 or 6 (. though 10 is pretty great too!) The dog is much easier… How can one not chose the Maltese, #10… precious!. When my mother would come to visit me in Paris, the one thing she kept loving was all the dogs allowed in the cafes. .. she would try to sit next to a table with a dog and then ask to pet! She loved seeing me, but missed my brother, the French poodle! But where are you in 12??? I’d love to see the swings next time I am in Paris! not sure if I want to eat while swinging though, looks a bit uncomfortable??? but what restaurant please!

    safe home… and looking forward to next year’s adventures! ( tututu!!)

      The swings are at a cafe on Blvd. Beaumarchais near the Chemin Vert subway stop.

    Les chiens: # 4 second choice # 9.
    Les chaises: I would say # 1, but that wouldn’t be fair, 😉 So I’ll say # 12.

    Enjoy your day! Hope it is cool and you are up to getting out and about.

    Glad we got three votes for the chairs, because I had several favorites.

    Chairs: #1, #8, #14
    Dogs: #5 (Not the cutest dog, by any means, but that picture makes me laugh every time. The lady and the dog are giving you the same look.)

    Chairs: #9 just says “sit here, i’m big enough for you”. Dog #1 is being so good with the owner on the opposite side of the table.

    Chairs: 10, 14, 18. Many of the more forward design ones were attractive but didn’t look that comfortable!

    Pups: 4 & 6

    Thank you for some wonderful nostalgia in my home town. Hope that next year brings as many friends, less apartment hassles, and excellent health to both of you.

    Chairs:
    I simply cannot pick three. It took a lot to narrow from nine down to five. 1, 4, 5, 7, 14. I love that the yellow chair one has the attractive girl in the yellow dress sitting in it with all the crowds beyond her. Great photo composition in my opinion.

    Will get back to you on the dog 😂

    PS, this is an indecisive person‘s greatest challenge, lol!
