My name is Laurie and I'm new to the forum. We just added our first frenchie Hotchkiss to our family on Christmas Eve. He is 11 weeks old and so far house training has been going well. I got him so I would have a cuddle bug and walking buddy for our current staffy Sidney. I have three children ages 5 years and 16 month old twins. My husband passed away in June from complications of a botched double lung transplant so I'm raising my herd of kids and fur babies solo but hey I love a challenge lol! Just wanted to post a hi this is me thread. I hope to post more when I figure the forum out.
Hi and welcome! Sounds like you have your hands full. I can't wait to see pictures.

Did you adopt him from French Bulldog Rescue Network? I saw his page (if it's the same frenchie) as we cross post many rescues here. :) That's awesome. Welcome to FBN!!!
No we didn't adopt him from french bulldog network but that's where the name came from. We had applied for him but apparently he didn't get along with small kids or hyper dogs which my Sidney can be sometimes. My daughter fell in love with the name and insisted our dog be named the same.image.jpg
