Secrets of Paris sidekicks Pedro and Lena are two espresso-powered miniature pinschers (from Cannes, they'll have you know). They roam the streets of Paris at least three times a day, sniffing out the city's hidden corners (they seem to have a weakness for open markets, particularly the rotisserie chicken stands). Rest assured, dear visitors, that they also have their own personal pooper scooper.
