Last weekend we took Jack to a Bulldog BBQ without a doubt, I came away wanting a big soft British Bulldog!

As soon as we got out the car we must have seen 10 other frenchies arrive at the same time, who happened to be a group who meet every Sunday in the Didsbury area for a Frenchie meet - we must go next Sunday! I think anyone around the Manchester area are more than welcome and i'm sure there is a group on FB to be apart of too!

We entered Jack into the competition 'Most Handsome' Unfotunately the dog infront was very interested in Jack and Jack was even more interested in him, which led to them play fighting the whole way through the competition. I don't think he got noticed... Otherwise I'm sure he would have won and I'm not being biased... All the dogs were gorgeous and a lovely chunky British Bulldog collected his award as the most handsome man there! Well done to you!

The above Medicated Body Powder was recommended by a lady who was there given lots of advice about the bulldog breed. Recently we've noticed Jack's armpits and also parts of the insides of his legs have looked sore and red. He does sweat quite a bit so we know its down to this! Partly the reason we've recently changed his harness to a different style! Anyway, this powder was recommended over using Sudocrem and it does actually prevent the red sore marks! You can find it in B&M, if anyone else has a little sweaty frenchie it might be worth a try!

As you can see in the photos, this is the big pup Jack was playing with as Martin desperately tried to catch the judges eye! On the way back we stopped by a cafe called Brewski in Chorlton, look at this MASSIVE Sunday lunch!

Thank you for reading!! I hope you enjoyed my photos, maybe we will win next year!

I get sent many questions from lots of lovely people wanting to find out a little more about Jack, I've put this post together so they can all be answered in one place! I've chose some of the most popular questions but anything else feel free to send us a message and I'll happily answer!

Where did you find Jack?

We used a UK website called Pets 4 Homes, all breeders are Kennel Club Registered. We spent quite a while (months) keeping an eye on this website, of course there were so many frenchies we wanted to go see and we did arrange a couple of times to visit breeders at weekends. With them being so popular at the time, the weekend would come and the puppies would have already been sold. We found one breeder based in Bradford who had a litter of 7 boys, we arranged to drive there at the weekend. Once we got there the breeder already had two other people travel from different parts of country who had already chosen their new puppy, these two puppies were wearing colourful collars their new owners had picked! Within about 1 hour we had chosen a blue collar and placed it on JACK! It was so hard choosing from 5 puppies but 2 stood out being so friendly and interested in us. Jack was trying to climb up the inside of my sleeve, chewing my hair and then he nodded off very quick on my knee!

Who is Jacks breeder?

What diet do you give Jack?

Raw meat! 2 portions a day! We buy Natures Menu from Pets at Home about once a week.

Do you edit Jack's eyes?

This one makes me laugh! No, I don't touch Jacks eyes, I use filters but this doesn't make much difference to his eyes. He has very bright brown eyes especially when the sun is shining, otherwise they can appear quite dark almost black. I think people mean the whites under his eyes? If I edit this? When he's quite relaxed and cant be bothered lifting his head, he'll just lift his eyes which shows the whites underneath his eyes but no, the whites of his eyes are not edited.

Is Jack crate trained?

Yes, he has never known anything else! The breeder had all the litter in one crate and his first night with us we left him in his crate in the hallway (as much as I wanted him cuddled on my bed) He doesn't seem to mind, sometimes when we are in the house and we might be busy doing other things he'll just take himself to his crate and rest in there! It's his little den and safe place! We also cover his crate all the way round with 2 blankets, so its only the door of the crate uncovered. I think he feels safe when its covered, he must like his privacy!

For Martins birthday I booked a surprise trip to Palma in Spain, we've been once before but this time I decided to book somewhere right in the City Centre of Palma! Staying central is fab for all ages but it was perfect for us, a young couple with its shops, markets, harbour, bars & clubs there was lots for us to do! Plus the hotel had really cool bikes for us to explore a bit further to the beach...

Anyone who does plan to stay or visit Palma city, there is a buzzing little coffee shop right in the centre called La Molienda, you MUST visit for breakfast or even just a coffee! They serve the BEST coffee! It's an extremely 'instagrammable' coffee shop but also tastes as good as it looks!

Our hotel was called Innside Palma Bosque also another MASSIVE recommendation, I would definitely stay in one of their hotels again! It was super clean and very relaxing!

As Jack didn't have a boarding pass or his own passport, we took him to his grandparents for his own little holiday! This was the first time he had stayed over without us, however, he's crate trained and also familiar with their home so we thought he would settle quite quickly. Here'sone of the text messages I received...

Would anyone else's parents send reports like this!? I love them!

I chose some really delicate pieces, in the above I'm wearing the rose gold Tiny Pendant Necklace. At the moment I love circular earrings so I also have the Minimalist Double Circle earrings in gold! They are based in Berlin but offer worldwide shipping which is a bonus when everything is so nice! 

Of course Jack posted some photos on Instagram too, if you missed them you can find them here - @littleblackfrenchie but remember before you place an order use our code littleblackfrenchie for 10% off!

I've owned a DW watch for a while now, I have the Classic Sheffield style which is one with a black leather strap, it's like my everyday watch! When I received this one I was so pleased to have an alternative to the leather strap. This one Jack modelled is the Classic Petite Sterling Silver design. Suits him right?

This had to be one of our first posts! Lilly Pet Shop is one of our favorite boutiques, all their products are hand crafted and made to the highest quality!

Originally I was wary about leaving the Squeaky Rainbow Ball with Jack as I thought he may destroy it straight away (like he does most toys) but 1 year on he still loves to play with it and i'm quite impressed with how tough this ball is! It's perfect.

We have the Classic Toy Basket which suits our home nicely, they offer these baskets in various colours so don't worry about it matching your furniture they have a colour for everyone! I love that it's not your normal 'dog' style and it actually looks so nice in the home. Plus, since having this basket, Jack has even learnt to put his toys back! Well sometimes he does... Ideal for anyone who likes a tidy house.

As well as the above they offer beds, toys, blankets and also the same for cats! International postage is also available! I would 100% reccomend this brand, I genuinely love their style and so does Jack!

So it all started from the Instagram account littleblackfrenchie which I created in May 2016, shortly after Jack (our frenchie) was brought home and welcomed into my arms! A lot has already happened from this account, in such a short space of time, with the amount of photos I take, the places I visit and the questions I'm asked, I thought it was time a blog was created!

Welcome to my blog!
