I found Pasta Dog in the Lake Como district of Northern Italy. I had parked at the top of the hill and walked down 800 plus steps to the lake to paint, also thinking I would just go back and retrieve the car for picking up my art gear. Unbeknownst to me .....there were no roads, hence no car for pick up. As I started my 800 step hike back to the top, with all my art gear, I saw this sweet little guy watching me with upmost amusement on his sweet little face. I then said to him.....bet you don't do these stairs on a regular base!
