:) Hello!

Babette and I are new here. Babette is my first frenchie who I am absolutely head over paws in love with! I've had her for about a year now and look forward to meeting other frenchie enthusiasts.


A little information:


*Babette is roughly 23 lbs @ about 1 year old (we were told she was going to be huge ~ around 30 lbs! glad she's stayed relatively small)

*Her favorite treat is: anything she can get into that big mouth of hers, but especially ice cubes and whatever daddy happens to 'accidentally' drop while he's eating dinner.

*Her favorite activities are: napping, playing, and chasing the kitties around (we're working on that one!)

*She is a wonderful sport as far as being dressed up in ridiculous costumes by her mommy. Last year she was a bullysaurous!

*We are from California and the heat has been killer. Thank goodness for the air conditioner!

*We're still looking for a good brand of dog food, and considering adding elements of a raw diet into her current regime.

*She does seem to be suffering from allergies and chews her paws and inner back legs constantly. We've had many vet visits because of it, and ultimately suspect it's food related.

We look forward to hearing from other bullies, it has been a pleasure meeting you. :)

Babette is beautiful! Welcome to you both! You might consider having her tested for food allergies before doing a food switch!

My goodness, Babette looks a lot like my Cosette. Cosette's first mom told me she got her as a puppy in CA.
Perhaps long lost cousins? LOL

Welcome!

Welcome to the site and your baby is a cutie, plus Frenchies are the best. We feed ours FROMM Pork & Peas, and she is doing well on it.

Thank you for the warm welcome!

I think I'll ask her vet about testing for allergies - it might save us some $$ and give us a healthier puppy in the long run, thanks for the idea!

Maybe they are cousins, wouldn't that be exciting? :D


I'll check out FROMM online, thank you for the suggestion!

I think if we didn't have two kitties I'd be begging for another Frenchie - but not too much - my husband has fallen completely in love with her and already wants one of his own. He says he's going to name him Francoise. Maybe Babette will get a buddy in a year or two. :D

Welcome to FBN! Babette is adorable!! I also feed my Frenchie and 2 English Bullies Fromm Pork&Peas! It has been an amazing food for all 3 but especially for my male EB who has horrible allergies!

:welcome3: to FBN!

We feed Fromm Pork and Peas... doing very well. Have also used Beef frittata and Game Bird all in the grain free line.

as for the allergy test, see if you can wait till she is 2 as you will get a better result. The test is not 100% accurate but will give a great starting point of what to avoid
