    Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    The farting with our girl is terrible and we feed her Fromm but she has been that way since the day we brought her home... Just part of her charm... And I really didn't notice much shedding at all compared to my other two dogs that's for sure. Over all a cute article not meant to be taken literal just for fun

    I really enjoyed the article! After having English Bulldogs for over 30 years, my half French/ half Olde English is an absolute delight. Now, if I'd had Poodles maybe I'd be singing a different tune!

    I am indeed a Frenchie junkie; I smile every time I'm here.
    You'll never have a bad day with a Frenchie in your life!

    Norm & Lady Bug

    Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    I think I got pretty luck with Norm is a very health and a good dog.

    1. Norm can clear a room like no other.
    2. I don't know where all the fur comes from.
    3. Norm often referred to as The Pig Pig
    4. Never had an issue with drooling or being messy.
    5. This never used to be an issue until recently when he attacks the TV. I think he needs friends.
    6. So Thankful he doesn't eat poop
    7. Luckily no allergies
    8. Stubborn yes..not so small though
    9. Potty Training went very well(just a couple of days) only have handful of accidents
    10. He's pretty content with entertaining himself
    11. This is the funniest thing you will ever here...I think he sounds like the predator
    12. No health issues...so far
    13. I wouldn't trade Norm so any other dog.

    Red face Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    #1 had me nervous, but so far Q isn't too atrocious. I can handle the farts at home, but when she toots while working with the trainer or waitress at dinner, I turn red and am mortified. I'm not the best mommy, by just ignoring it and moving on because I have to apologize that Q tooted and it'll probably hit their gag reflex really soon. It makes me feel better, so the person doesn't assume it was me.

    XoXo from Quella La Roux and her mommy too!

    Omg, I feel so much better about our little poo eating disclosure after reading this! It's chronic in the breed! Or at least it's joked to be. My breeder said go with all raw food as the stool will have less nutrient passed in it that might be appealing. Worth trying. 1 week in, love my frog dog to death!!!

    Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    No 13 here I just love my boys however naughty Hugo is (Winston doesn't do a thing wrong, lol) I can't help but snuggle their little wrinkly faces. I would love another one, a girl would be lovely, came close to getting a girl a few months ago but was let down

    Schatzi and Pierce

    Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    Randy loves the Bully farts, but he is a firefighter and I think they must have competitions at work or something! Potty training with Pierce has more good days than bad. We definitely have to watch him and make sure he isn't too busy to go outside (he is pretty good about the doggie door). He definitely loves to sound like he is in a huge fight with Schatzi, but they are only playing-and he has brought her back to a play level we have not seen in a few years. We have a talker, so we really get the yodel when left by himself for a minute. It sounds like, "How DARE You leave me in this room!"
    Randy said we were going to be a one dog family when Molly, our English Bulldog, died, but then finally decided to get Pierce. I hope he isn't planning to think that way once Schatzi has passed (which hopefully will not be for a few more years). I already know we need another Frenchie in the house!

    Rosie and Mia

    Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    OMG I love that list! We have 2 frenchies that are 8 months old. Rosie and Mia. They are biologic sisters from the same littler and were less than 1 oz. difference in their weight at 12 weeks. After their second flea and tick treatment our saga with Rosie started which has been months of diarrhea, rectal prolapse, diet changes, all kinds of different medications, purse string surgery to cure the rectal prolapse and abdominal surgery to check for a possible foreign body causing the diarrhea and bloody stool. After 2 regular vets, about $5000.00 in vet bills and Rosie nearly dying we finally got her into the Vet School at OSU just in time according to the Resident who we saw. Rosie was so anemic they gave her blood transfusions, IV fluids, and found an ulcer in her duodenum that was darn near perforating into her abdominal cavity. While doing her lab work they noticed she had no cortisole. They found that curious and did a definitive test for Addisons disease which came back positive and thank God we finally, finally had an answer! It was while my husband was talking to our regular vet and telling him what the OSU Vet School and found that he found this site and found other posts about Frenchies with Rectal Prolapse and a diagnosis of Addisons Disease! Our regular vet said "boy you learn something everyday, I never would have thought Addisons from her initial symptoms." The main and worse symptom all along, though, was horrible diarrhea. So keep us in mind anyone out there that has a Frenchie with these 2 symptoms. Save yourself some money but more importantly, save your precious frenchies life. These last 5 months have been hell for us and our poor little Rosie. She weighs 18# and her sister Mia weighs 28#. We now have her on a beef and barley diet and she'll be on medication for the rest of her life, but she's finally starting to get a spark back and is starting to want to play with Mia again. I am so grateful to have found out what was wrong. I couldn't believe this was what her life was going to be like.

    Bambi, Ginger

    Re: Top Reasons to Never Buy a French Bulldog :)

    Ha, ha! Love numbers 11 and 13. I adore it when Bambi does the "death yodel." Have only heard it a couple of times but it is hysterical. It usually happens when she is surprised or sees someone on the other side of the fence. Not having frenchies, the first time John and I heard it, we thought she was sick. Every day I marvel at how cute she is and what a nice personality she has. She has been frisky lately (spring, maybe?), and when I come home from work, she does the zoomies and then runs over to me, turns her back to me and sits on my foot. I can work her into a frenzy when we play.
