I always had pets growing up and couldn’t wait to have one as an adult. I couldn’t have one until I got my own place, with a garden and lots of space for them to play.
I’ve always been in love with Frenchies, ever since I saw a picture of one about 20 years ago. When I went to get Sophie, I knew I had made the right decision as soon as I laid eyes on her. It was love at first sight.
The unconditional love and affection.
Yes, due to the extensive inbreeding associated with French Bulldogs, we have had quite a few trips to the vet. Even Otis who is a pedigree has had a range of issues requiring medical treatment over the years. Issues ranging from BOAS surgery to Anaphylaxis to Corneal Ulcers, we have done it all!
Do your research and get the best insurance you can afford. This is a living creature and you have a responsibility to ensure that is looked after and given the best life possible. If you can’t commit to that, then don’t get a pet.
Sophie was our little princess for the first year and half that we had her. I still remember the look on her face the day we brought Otis home, she was horrified! She was so jealous at first and all Otis wanted to do was win her affection. After a few weeks, she warmed to him though and now they love each other. Although sometimes I am sure I can see her plotting how to get rid of him, especially after a particularly stubborn game of tug of war.
