A French Bulldog Invasion!

In the last year or so, I've been noticing these unbelievably cute little dogs, almost everywhere here in town. Just today, Monsieur Bogie came in to our showroom, and I was thrilled that he came over to me and allowed me the pleasure of his company.  ( a white coated male he was)

You may know, or perhaps not, that Martha Stewart has two - Francesca and Sharkey, and they even have their very own blog, called "The Daily Wag" !  Absolutely adorable!

Look at this one!  She is just so cute, and waiting for a new home.  From Wikipedia, I learned that this breed has been favored by socialites, the rich, and even beautiful and fabulous Miz Reese Witherspoon. And of course,  they are everywhere to be seen here in Naples- even in certain restaurants which have indoor-outdoor dining rooms...

I seem to keep seeing the cream ones- they seem to be very popular- and I did notice that they are commanding prices upwards of $5,000.00 depending on the breeder....but they are known for being very sweet, affectionate, and for not barking much.  In other words, wonderful companions!

This little boy is just too cute for words- a more exaggerated version of the breed would be hard to find.  It's considered very desirable to have them looking as muscular as possible.  This puppy hasn't quite matured yet.  Still a baby!  Love those ears!

Above, Mr. Sharkey, who belongs to fabulous Martha Stewart.  He is being kept warm in his little sweater, what a cutie.  Check out his adventures with Francesca on the site, The Daily Wag.  Enjoy!  Cheers!  DF *****
