Junebug in July

A few Good Samaritans pooled their money and bought Junebug out of durance vile at the hands of a disreputable breeder.  Arrangements were made to acquire her, and Junebug was picked up in dark of night in an empty parking lot.  Friends, if a breeder won't allow you to come to their home and see their facilities, that is a very bad sign.  If they want to meet you after dark in a parking lot in a bad part of town, that's another bad sign.  We don't encourage our friends and supporters to ever do anything dangerous, even for a Frenchie in trouble.  But once Junebug was in our care, we were glad our Good Samaritan friend and her husband made the trip.

Junebug was adopted a few months ago, and from time to time we hear from her adopter.  We love to hear from adoptive families.  It can be hard to let these dogs go, but knowing that they are so beloved makes it easier for our foster families.  Here's a note from Junebug's mom, talking about Junie and her sister Gigi:

"I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that Junebug is doing great.  She has had no health issues and has fit into our family perfectly.
Her personality has changed dramatically in the past few months.  She is definitely the top dog around here!  She never fights with Gigi but just gives her a look that means drop that toy!
She has filled out a little more and her coat has continued to improve.  It is nice and shiny now.
She has had a few accidents when someone else has been watching her and we deviate from our routine, but seems to understand that I really don't like for her to do that!
I hope you and your family are doing well and are having a nice summer.  We are having a cool spell here and it has been great.  Thanks again for picking me to be Junie's new mom."

Seems that Junebug is a girl after our own heart.  Iron fist in a velvet glove and one look that can stop another frog in her tracks?  Yes, that is the kind of Frenchie born to be a benevolent despot, not unlike

The Frog Princess
