Also on Sept 28, there's Rottapalooza in Gray's Lake Park, Des Moines, IA!

And if you are among the millions of people who live in or near NYC, why not come out to the Taste of France on Sept 28?  FBRN dogs and grads had a wonderful time there last year, and we expect a good turnout of volunteers, supporters, and grads!  Le Taste of France is in Bryant Park, NYC.

Is it possible that there will be cheese at Le Taste of France, wonders

Who Doesn't Like Pizza?!

Come on and join the Pizza Pawty tomorrow night!  Make a pizza or order in and share your photos with our Facebook and Twitter community!

Check it out, there's also an opportunity to win a pizza-colored red wagon for toting Frenchies all around the town, and to receive a great special edition pin to commemorate the event!

It's kind of hard to type while we are drooling, notes

The Frog Princess

PS  Be careful!  The Pizza Pawty is for fun, but pizza has lots of fat and too much could give your frogs a case of the collywobbles!  Please use good judgement and don't actually feed your dog pizza if it contains ingredients like onions or other foodables that may cause gastrointestinal distress for your pup. Last year we had many supporters post photos of their Frenchies *pretending* to enjoy human pizza, *pretending* to enjoy toy pizza from their children's kitchenettes, or even actually enjoying homemade pizza that was made using Frenchie friendly ingredients. The key is to USE GOOD JUDGEMENT.

True 'nuff

"Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won't buy the wag of his tail." 
--Josh Billings
(Assuming your dog has a tail, of course, but we think you get the idea.)
A few wise words for this weekend from

Rock Steady!

Rock Steady, baby!

She's rock steady on her pegs, and her personality is sweet and low down.  Her foster mom says she might be 10 years old, but she runs rings around the younger dogs in her home, and when it was time to leave the shelter where her family had dumped her, Steady was ready, and she moved like a steamroller to get the hell out of there.

She's alert, curious, totally attuned to her people, and she's a girl with all the warmth and soul of Ms. Aretha herself. 

And she's got the spirit-- she's rock Steady.

Look for her on the foster roster next weekend, along with a bunch of other funky new pups, advises

I Wandered Lonely


I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
 A host, of golden daffodils;
 Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
 Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Young Daffodil will shortly be dancing across the pages of our foster roster, and we are pretty sure that she won't be allowing her new family to feel anything like lonely.

Her foster mom says Daffodil is one of those kissy kinda frogs who will NOT be denied when it comes to love and affection.

So if, like Wordsworth, you find yourself lying on your couch in vacant or in pensive mood, and you would rather not be vacant, pensive, or lonely, keep an eye out for  Daffodil.  She'll make it her business to perk you right up.

And couldn't we all use a little perk me up in canine form? asks
