Sometimes an old dog has to leave her home and start a new life.
adorable Butter Bean. At nine years old, her family's work schedule became so demanding that Mlle. B. Bean was not receiving the kind of attention she deserved. Her broken-hearted person surrendered her so that Butter Bean's remaining years could be full of love and laptime.
That's what Frenchies need, you know. They are not like some dogs who are happy to be with you or apart from you. Frenchies were bred to be lapdogs and they need their people. Sometimes we hear from disgruntled applicants who have to work all day away from home and whose workplaces don't allow their dogs to go in with them. They suspect that FBRN is prejudiced against working people. In some ways, they are right. We want the very best situations for our dogs, and for most of our Frenchies, that means a home where there is someone around most of the day. Frenchies are great for retired people and people who work from home or work part time or who have partners who have a schedule that is staggered--morning shift for one and graveyard shift for another.
This is not to say that if you work away from home you won't be considered for a Frenchie from FBRN! The majority of the world works away from home in places that don't allow dogs to come to work. We just want people to understand how we think about our dogs' happiness and emotional health when it comes to making choices. Butter Bean's owner thought the same way, and that's why Mlle. B. Bean is looking for a home where someone can share Butter Bean's days.

We have a little secret. We would turn up our nose at good-for-you food and hold out for TREATS ONLY if the kingdom's nutritionist would let us.
Some people are way too caught up in that whole stupid food pyramid myth and don't understand the value of a little squeezy cheese and hotdogs, are we right? Vive la fromage squeezy! Vive le hambairgaire! Vive le root beer float! Vive la revolution dans la cuisine! incites
