Frenchies and Kids – Photos Needed!

Ryan with Tara - Le Bull's Achey Breaky Heart

Ryan with Tara - Le Bull's Achey Breaky Heart

The French Bulldog Village is gearing up for its annual fund raising
calendar. The theme this year is “Frenchies and Kids”, and we NEED
your photos!

We’re looking for clear, well framed photos of French Bulldogs –
adults, puppies or seniors – along with one or more children.

To submit a photo, the children pictured must be your immediate family
members – no random kids from the park or what have you.

Photos need to be hi resolution, digital (ie; emailed to me) and
longer than they are high. When you send them, please include your
name, the name(s) of the child or children, and the name and age of
the French Bulldog(s).

Please attach your photos to an email, and send it to me at .

Remember, photos must be high resolution, digital, longer rather than they are high
(ie; landscape).

Sorry, but NO show photos, and if the photo is
professionally taken you must either be the photographer or have the
photographer’s permission. All photos must be submitted ASAP, so we
can get the calendar out as soon as possible.

A Fish Called Boogie

The Infamous Mystery Clock Unveiled!

Thanks to everyone who donated to the French Bulldog Village’sWe’ll Stop at Nothing” fundraiser, Kimberly Rice has reluctantly agreed to unveil the mystery clock.

Here is Charlotte’s official announcement –

Here is the infamous mystery clock!

The fundraiser was dominated hands down by Kristen Boone of MD, with Tyree Pace of California coming in a determined but distant second. Altogether, we raised $425.00 for the privilege of revealing the mystery clock in all its ugliness. Thank you to all who contributed to make this fundraiser possible.

We finally got to see the clock! Aw, Kimberly, it’s not that bad. Interesting muzzle, and I love the big stitches ala Frankenstein holding together the left side of the face!

Enjoy the clock, Kristen!

And, here it is –

French Bulldog Village's Mystery Clock Unveiled!

French Bulldog Village's Mystery Clock Unveiled!

Kimberly had a few words to say, in her own defense –


If for one minute you thought I was fibbing about the true UGLINESS of this clock–well, here is the proof. OH MY GOSH!!! I cannot believe you are going to actually publish this!!!

I am going to have to send Kristin a REAL clock—I will let her pick the color and design. this one is just disturbing.

The muzzle even looks like it is bleeding.

Well, maybe not so much ‘in her own defense’, but at least she’s honest about this odd little clock’s faults. Personally, I think that this ‘ugly’ little clock (which was the forerunner of so many other, attractive clocks) is the absolute PERFECT fundraiser for French Bulldog Village, and the French Bulldogs that they help.

After all, FBV doesn’t always get the prettiest Frenchies into rescue. In fact, FBV seems to get more than its fair share of the halt, the lame and the down right ‘disturbing’ dogs. Look at poor Bella – hairless and stinky and not exactly a French Bulldog beauty queen. And yet in her own way, Bella IS beautiful – just like this clock, Kimberly. Your clock shines with inner beauty (OK, maybe that’s just the glare off of the bloody stitches, but you get the idea).

Either way, now you can’t say that you haven’t been forewarned – when it comes to raising money for French Bulldogs (and the occasional pug, Frenchie mix, and ‘oh, what the hell – if you squint it sorta looks like a Frenchie’), FBV will STOP AT NOTHING!

And remember, just because this fundraiser is over doesn’t mean that you can’t still give to FBV. After all, the world needs to have a place where the not so pretty French Bulldogs can turn to for help, and that place is French Bulldog Village. Let’s help them keep their doors open, so that no dog is turned away.

Use the paypal button below to give – don’t make us show you more photos of the clock.

Kimberly's Beautiful Blue French Bulldog Clock

Kimberly's Beautiful Blue French Bulldog Clock

Some of you out there, who happen to be French Bulldog Village volunteers or who visited the FBVillage booth at the 2009 French Bulldog Club of America National Specialty in Massachusetts, are the lucky owners of French Bulldog clocks lovingly hand painted and glazed by our very own FBVillage board member Kimberly Rice in the wee hours of the night when she finally got home from work every night. A real labor of love and some very beautiful clocks.

These clocks were so popular among our volunteers that we had a dreadful time keeping any back in order to have some to sell at the Specialty show!

What you don’t know about is Clock #1. Clock #1 was also lovingly hand painted and glazed by Kimberly Rice. Before she knew what she was doing. She has told me repeatedly that Clock #1 is so incredibly hideous that she will not/cannot show it to ANYONE. Kim Jacoby has seen it and could probably attest to its ugliness, but she has already blanked out the memory from her mind… I asked her, “How ugly exactly is this clock, Kim?” and her response was, “What clock??”

So, I really, really want to see this clock, but several months of browbeating and begging and whining have not produced a picture of Clock #1. Kimberly says it is just too ugly. No pictures. Go away.

Well, I finally convinced her to turn it into a fundraiser. Sort of a hideous silent auction. Here is how it works. We are asking for donations in any amount to PayPal – the donate button is right on the front page of the French Bulldog Village website – AND when we reach $300.00 in donations, the auction will close, and Kimberly will produce a picture of Clock #1, AND she will ship it at no additional cost to the highest donor. Unless of course, the person, upon seeing Clock #1, says, um, er, oh my, no thanks! Alternately, we can mail it to your dearest friend in your name… Or, we can mail it to the next highest lucky donor on our list. And so on, until someone agrees to take Clock #1 and give it a home. Poor Clock #1, her own mommy doesn’t love her.

Kimberly is being very brave about this. And I HAVE to see this clock. Please donate!

The K-Kids need your help

Here’s a PayPal button link, to allow you to bid (HIGH and OFTEN) on the mystery clock.

Remember, every single dollar benefits the K Kids and the other French Bulldogs and French Bulldog mixes that the French Bulldog Village assists. FBV is the last resort for the French Bulldogs that other rescues turn down – please don’t make FBV have to start turning down Frenchies for lack of funds.

A gallery of the beautiful clocks Kimberly has designed – remember, no one gets to see Clock #1 until the auction is OVER! We’ll be unveiling it right here, as soon as FBV unleashes it on the world.
