frenchie.

okay so you might remember this post from a few months ago. i was all about the teddy-bear-esque pups but lately i can't get enough of little frenchies. there's just something about those little pointy ears... and the puppies?! 
gosh. don't get me started. AND i already have a awesome name picked out:: 
kishmish (it's the first word in Farsi i learned...it means raisin. real useful eh?) 
seersucker dog bow tie collar $24, viaviaviaviavia
so game over- we need to expand our family (just as soon as we find one from a shelter--seriously just say no to puppy mills!) until then with the help of the o so addictive pinterest i can save all those little pups onto my 'happy maker' board when i need a little something to brighten my day. 

are you a dog or a cat (or a ferret, bunny, bird) person? 
what is your favorite pet name?
xo,

  4. Definitely a dog person. I love naming pets after something significant in your life. My dog is named after a fictional character, Tully Mars, from a Jimmy Buffett book. Mishmash is precious!

  11. OMG...love, love, love frenchies!! We decided on a westie, but it was a close call. Every frenchie I see seems to happy and friendly :) I couldn't find a breeder around here to visit them, so we went with what we knew. And I'm so glad we did, but every time I see a frenchie I think "awww...maybe Louis needs a sister?"

    I am definitely a dog person, and by default my favorite dog name is Louis Wellington :)

  12. Oh my geeze...could they be any cuter??? I love love love frenchies and how precious is the name you picked out!! I'm DEFINITELY a dog person- my little Lola drives me totally bonkers most of the time but I can't imagine my life without her.

  18. They're so cute!! I want one!

  19. Oh my gosh I want to cuddle up next to one of these. Their wrinkly faces are just the best! We are expanding our family with a dog as soon as we move (carpeted apartments and puppies do not mix)!

  20. Oh my goodness... puppies... I can't take the cuteness! I'm definitely a dog kind of gal. I have two: Bear and Rumba. I think Penny is a cute name and so Cha Cha... I love my dance inspired names.

  21. You must check out the French Bulldog Rescue Network:
    http://www.frenchbulldogrescue.org/index.html

    Look into adopting one! :)

  22. OMG they are adorable!! I really want a little cocker spaniel pup. The Boyfriend and I have decided we're going to get one as soon as we're living somewhere that allows dogs. For now, we have our Little Love, Molly. :)

  23. OMG the picture of the dog chewing the leaf melts my heart! I'm trying to convince my bf its a good idea for us to have a dog, he's not havin' it. haha.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I used to be a "fish" sort of a person...they're just there to look pretty...no calling a sitter when you leave on a trip, and no big poop logs in your backyard to pick up. But then we got Chomper (he was such a cute little Pitbull puppy, I couldn't resist)...the boys named him after the baby TRex in "A Land Before Time"...and he's definitely lived up to it (he's been known to chew through doors just to get in the house)...but I can't imagine our family without him now...I just adore him. And the best part is, my husband takes care of all the dog dooty :)

  25. Love both cats and dogs- right now bf & I have 2 cats (and pending Boxer & pug additions). Kitty names are Zoe and Meowington :)

  26. I have a Frenchie and they are the greatest dogs! My Frenchie, Frances, never barks, which is great when you live in a small condo in Chicago. They are awesome city dogs and because Chicago is such a dog friendly place I can bring her everywhere (p.s. Nordstrom on Michigan Ave. even has a "doggy comfort center" in the loggy with treats and a water bowl). If you want the name of a breeder in southern Illinois I'd be happy to tell you where my little Fran came from. Get one! It will be the best decision ever!

  28. Ohhh my goodness! How adorable! We have an Amer Bulldog and a Boxer but we are thinking about getting 1 more...either an English Bulldog or one of these. So cute!

  33. oh those puppies are so cute! and yay for saying no to puppy mills! there are so many sweet dogs at shelters in need of a loving family. have you checked into a rescue organization specifically for frenchies? we have a cat {she's been my roomy for 10 years now}, and we plan on getting a giant dog in the nearish future. i'm a therapist, so i want to get a therapy dog. can't wait!

  35. My sister-in-law has a french bulldog who is still in her first year. She is cute but she is so rambunctious! My goodness, she jumps on you non stop! She is pretty funny though.

  36. My sweet baby from the shelter was one of the best decisions I ever made! And of course, dog is the way to go.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those puppies are way too cute for their own good! I'm a dog and cat person; I love them both. We've had boxer dogs my whole life and we've rescued all but one from a boxer rescue. Good idea of getting one from a shelter. They are so ready to be loved!

  51. Omgomgomgomg! You make me want to run out and get another one, once you go Frenchie you never go back!! And thanks so much for the sweet note on Apartment 34

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ummm...you're KILLING ME. And btw -- I have the SAME dream, but different name for the pup. I will only get a rescue pup. Preferably one that really needs me. Buddy had a broken leg. I want someone that no one else wants. I love the sweet broken ones that need tons of love.

    I need a frenchie. Preferably a girl, because I have her name picked out.

    Love this post!

  56. I love these little pups! I saw one this weekend and decided I want one. I would totally name him bosley or something equally "formal" - I think it would be cute and funny.
