Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

We'd like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and hopes for bright new beginnings!

Our little Betty didn't have the best of beginnings.
It's because of the incredible people at French Bulldog Rescue Network  that we now have Betty and get to show her how a Froggie Princess should live...   Merry Christmas Betty girl.

Yesterday, we took Betty out to one of the vineyards Bruce manages to show her Stella and Gunther's favorite pass times.


Too much ground to cover so there will be no one off a leash today!

Checking out the yummy smells. 

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for... Taaa daaaa!

What Gunther does best.

What Stella does best.

The beauty of this day is that it's the first time Betty felt comfortable going potty while walking on the leash. We think she hasn't had much practice because she always waits to go potty until we get home to her yard. She's REALLY private about her business so we told the puperatzzi to stay away until she was done.

It was a long day for Ms. Betty. Nothing to do but nap the rest of the day away with Gunther watching over her.

*disclaimer... no poo was left behind. We always carry poo bags. :)

That's why I do what I do, blog, tweet, write books, Betty and others like her...Thank you for sharing her story on Christmas Day. I'm sure she'll have a wonderful life ahead of her, as we do at our home (to which we refer to as "our shelter".

What a lovely walk - that's the perks of living in CA, I guess!! I think you and Betty were destined to be together. Wish I was in the position to take in a rescue (I'd have to crate, think that's a DQ). Glad to see you all so happy together!! You'll have to let me know some labels that you are associated with, as my husband (Paul) & I really enjoy wine! It'd be fun to be on the look-out for something you helped create!!

Love to Stellla!!
Michelle & Brutus
