ECFBC Fun Day in Mississauga

Eastern Canada French Bulldog Club held its second French Bulldog Jamboree Funday on Saturday, at Doggie Central in Mississauga. French Bulldogs and their friends (all breeds are welcome at these events) gathered together to play, try out the agility equipment and generally enjoy each others company.

Our door prize draw and raffle were a great success, with almost everyone in attendance going home with a gift of some kind.

If you missed Saturday’s event, don’t despair – we’re already making plans for another one, this time in downtown Toronto! Stay tuned for details.

Our thanks to our wonderful sponsors, who make all of this possible – we couldn’t do this without you!

French Bulldogs in the Thousand Islands

Dexter at the Eastern Canada French Club Booster in Orangeville


Can you think of a better way to spend a summer weekend than surrounded by hundreds of French Bulldogs? Of course you can’t, which is why you should be making plans to attend the Eastern Canada French Bulldog Club Specialty Booster in Brockville, Ontario. Brockville is convenient to the Western New York State border crossing, and is located in one of Canada’s most scenic tourist areas, the beautiful Thousand Islands Region of Ontario.

The ECFBC  Booster takes place on Sunday, August 19th, and our judge is R. Denis. We will be awarding prizes for:

Best of Breed
Best of Opposite
Best Veteran
Best Puppy
Best of Winners
Winners Dog
Winners Bitch
Highest Scoring French Bulldog in Obedience and Rally
And a prize for all class winners

Please consider donating a trophy!

This isn’t just about a single show, either – on one weekend, in a single location, you’ll be able to take part in:

The ECFBC French Bulldog Regional Booster
The French Bulldog National Specialty – Saturday, August 18th, judge Everett Mincey
Group Six Specialty
French Bulldog Booster
Three all breed conformation shows
Three all breed rally and three all breed obedience trials

These shows are held in Conjunction with the Thousand Islands Kennel and Obedience Club.

If you’ve never before entered a dog show in Canada, read this Guide to Canadian Dog Shows for Americans.

If you’re not a dog show person, there are still some great reasons to come out and attend the show.

You’ll get to see some of the best French Bulldogs in Canada, all in one ring, and you’ll get to speak to some of Canada’s best and most knowledgeable French Bulldog breeders. There will be French Bulldog themed shopping, including a booth to benefit Eastern Canada French Bulldog Rescue and Last Chance French Bulldog Rescue. There will be raffles and benefits, parties and fun, and all among a group of people who won’t find it odd at all that you’ve come all the way to Brockville just to hang around a bunch of Frenchie people.

Gisele Needs a Throne

“Her idea of life is a warm bed, preferably with an electric pad, and a friend in bed with her, and plenty of shut-eye, night and days.”

Looking at Gisele today, you’d have a hard time guessing her past has been so rocky. Burrowed into a down comforter, she’s snuggled up next to her friend, Petal the cat, and is giving doing an excellent job of giving the impression that she’s always enjoyed life as a pampered Diva.

Less than a week ago, life was radically different for Gisele. Read more
