Frenchies do have some of the best personalities.


Hex is a social butterfly and insists everyone pets him. Lia is kind of a little princess, I'm the center of her universe and she puts up with Jody. Everyone else is an annoyance. I love her to death.


I do appreciate ethical breeders (we will most likely continue to get Rots from breeders). I would hate to see the breed be diluted into history with time.
I know violence is not the answer, I got it wrong on purpose

Good breeds should be preserved. I feel the same way about rotties and bouviers. Wouldn't it be a shame to lose some of these great breeds to history?

That said, one of my good canine buddies is a beautiful cross between rottie and Australian Shepherd.
Think it, be it.

Condolences to Rufus and his family, what a sweet boy.

I wouldn't call the relationship adversarial yet, but Otis is interested in squirrels and particularly rabbits. This morbidly obese squirrel simply chittered nervously where his more agile comrades seem to actually talk trash.

Some days, Otis follows momma around. Today, happy to report he's attached at my hip. His sister Bess (also a bouvier, 6 months his junior) arrives tonight or tomorrow.

We got another bouvier des Flandres Sunday. Her name is Bess. She's under 10lbs now at 10 weeks. Based on how large her paws are, she may wind up larger than her big brother Otis, who's about 6 months her senior. She is very sassy and fearless--she jumped off our high bed (something Otis took weeks to do), for example, and tirelessly attacks Otis right back when he plays with her. We will have to keep an eye on her until she's a bit larger!

To his credit, Otis is proving to be a great big brother. They are blood kin, and when we introduced her to him, he smelled her inquisitively for a long time. He may sense their kinship or her puppyhood, because he treats her differently than any other dog we've seen him with. He is gentle with her and they genuinely have affection for one another, and he doesn't exhibit the same kind of jealousy he does when other dogs get attention.

Where Otis' brindle coat becomes more obvious over time, we believe she will remain black save for the spot on her chest, and that both dogs may exceed 100 lbs.

Mona and Lisa. A chiweenie and a chihuahua. They are a such pleasure.

Not sure if this will work, but here's a video of Otis "sharing" a toy with Bess:

Bess appropriated a throw pillows as her bed when we first welcomed her home. This morning, she dragged it into the kitchen from the living room so she could hang out with me as I prepared lunch. She seems to be as clever as she is precocious. It only took her two treats to learn how to sit on command.
