A few videos of French Bulldog judging from this weekend’s Wine Country Kennel Club dog show, in Welland, Ontario. Dexter took Best of Winners over Sophie (Jenae Windridge Mon Petit Chou). Best of breed winner on both days we attended was Ch Foxmoor N’ Robb Isle’s Manta Ray.

Two Short Films – Vela and Dexter

Ain't no party like a Peanut Butter pool party!

Ain't no party like a Peanut Butter pool party!

A pair of (very) short film clips. The first is of Dexter doing his second story, dinner time, crate jump. The second film is a lucky capture.

The day before Vela went home, I’d told her new mom, Melissa, that Vela always had to have something in her mouth – very much like her Uncle Dexter, actually. Later that evening, I was out in the yard doing poo patrol. I’d put down the long rake type implement I used for scooping, and two seconds later I saw Vela bolting across the patio with it, a trail of fascinated puppies in her wake. I ran for my video camera, and caught her doing the same thing on her second pass.

That’s a mighty big pole to be carried by such a small puppy – I hope Melissa knows what she’s in for!

Added bonus: New puppy photos, including Peanut Butter pool party! The hot weather has Pickle, Pammy, Luke and PB hanging out in the wading pool, but no one loves it more than Peanut Butter, who’s been known to flop down and nap in there.

New photos and a new photo blog

French Bulldog Traffic JamI just uploaded a bunch of photos to Flickr.

There are some of Delilah, looking cute, some of Elliott, looking cute.. well, you get the idea. There’s a plethora of French Bulldog cuteness going on.

All of that photo posting, and the (hopefully) upcoming litters reminded me of something I’d been meaning to do – start a  dedicated blog for my French Bulldog photos and videos.

Personally, it drives me nuts when I visit a blog and get bogged down in a ton of photos. I’m on satellite – slow, slow satellite – and a photo heavy blog can slow me to a crawl. I assume that the same holds true for other people, as well. Still, I like uploading photos, so I decided to start a blog just to feature my French Bulldog photos.

It’s where I’ll be posting samples from some of my favorite sets uploaded to Flickr, as well as the newest videos of the pups or of the dogs being silly. I’ll add notes in my main blog posts here, so you’ll know where to find them, but this way you’ll have a choice.

The new photo blog is here –

It has a few photos from the two sets I just uploaded on Flickr today –

Frenchies around the pool and the pond

Dexter, Elliott and Nell

I’ll still post the occasional small photo here, naturally, but the big ones are over at the new blog.
