    This may be a silly question but.....

    Can Frenchies clean themselves? I know 99% of English Bulldogs cannot, so I was wondering if it was the same for Frenchies.

    Interesting .. I don't have a Frenchie (yet) .. but I would have thought they could because they just seem much leaner and more agile! But I'm sure some acutal Frenchie owners will be along soon to let us know!!!

    Fiona can clean her face sort of (except under her cheeks) but she can't really reach her special bits so we have to wipe that area to keep it clean!

    Buster hasn't tried to clean himself--that's Ruggles' job! He is only 4 mos. old and he is a half Frenchie!

    Re: This may be a silly question but.....

    Bernie has only just learnt that he can lick his front paws lol. (8 months old)
    He occasionally will try and chase a back leg but can never get it haha.
    He's far too chunky for flexibility of any kind

    My first Frenchie, Bella, would clean herself. We use to say she was half Frenchie, half cat . LOL

    Red face Re: This may be a silly question but.....

    Quella just started cleaning herself and it's only been her lady bits, twice. I had a total proud mom moment that she could even get in that position. She is 4.5 months old.

    Quella La Roux and her mommy too!

    Re: This may be a silly question but.....

    Maple does it ! When she was a baby I somehow assumed she couldnt so I wiped her private parts clean but then I noticed they stayed clean and a few days later I saw her clean herself the first time. Shes been doing it ever since. It does look awkward though sometimes because she has to kinda roll backwards on her bum to get down there
