I have a pooch who is kind, gentle and lovely but who sometimes lacks in grace whilst walking down the boulevards. Could you recommend ways for him to strut more gracefully? Thank you, Taocito
Dear Taocito, dear readers,
My assistant, a dancer, would recommend Pilates or other techniques that teach you how to stand tall and keep your back flat - always good for a more graceful gait.
Though your bichon pooch (pictured above) may feel goofier than elegant sometimes, remember, Queen Marie-Antoinette, who knew a thing or two about style, as well as a bevy of French sovereigns starting in the Renaissance, had bichons just like yours. (You can spot a few of them, amid a host of royal pups, in Sofia Coppola's Marie-Antoinette) Royalty dog! Be proud of what he is.
Dear readers, if you too have a question about lifestyle, fashion, Paris or anything else, don't hesitate to post a comment with your query. The Oracle always answers!
