This is the church of San Zaccaria, the facade uses a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles, circa 1400s.
And this, is my dearest yellow ball, Spiky, circa 2013.
My magnificent home is next to San Zaccaria, all the other dogs and doges are jealous.
My human is a champion thrower of spiky balls.
Without fail, I gallantly retrieve Spiky.
Spiky and I spend each afternoon in front of my church playing fetch with my human.
Cat watches our ritual from the window with great interest.
I have my awesome San Zaccaria and my stoic ball, Spiky, what more could any doge want?
