Sleep Sweetly PorkChop

September 4th, 2011|

This wonderful little puppy was Porkchop. He was an import from Columbia, South America, born on 12/31/2010, the last day of the old year. His happy owner was a young woman who had saved up to buy her first puppy, and when he came into the French Bulldog Village, he brought with him all those loving gifts that new owners buy their first puppies, a beautiful little plush bed, a little harness and matching […]

Our Sweet Ella – We Will Miss You

September 1st, 2011|

Ella came to the Village too late, yet she touched so many as she passed through our group.  We are sad to have to tell you that Ella did not make it through the day.
Ella was showing signs of distress for some time.  Her owner did not fully recognize the seriousness of her condition.  Ella suffered.  When Ella’s owner finally decided give her up, it needed to be done in a hurry because the owner was […]

In Loving Memory of Pippen

August 31st, 2011|

Pippen arrived at the Village in November 2010.  She and her frenchie sister were surrendered when their owner could no longer care for them.  Years of living outside in the California sun had paid a price on this pretty pied girl as she had survived two types of cancer (one thought to be due from sun exposure).  She was in foster care until February of this year, when she was adopted by a loving […]

In Loving Memory of Spaetzle

August 26th, 2011|

Beloved Spaetzle, known as Thelma when she was in the Village, passed away after a brief hospitalization. The doctors strongly believe she had a brain tumor. She passed away in  her forever home, in her own bed surrounded by the family that loved her dearly.  Spaetzle was a zany, loving, gentle, beautiful girl.  When she left FBVillage to join her own special family, they took her to the vet.  Upon  first meeting  her, the vet looked into her eyes and […]

In Loving Memory of Adam

July 17th, 2011|

Adam was a rescue in 2004. He came from a situation where he was not shown much love.  Thanks to unselfish rescue efforts he brought great joy into many people’s lives. He was special and his memory is a tribute to rescue organizations such as FB Village and FBRN.

Bobo’s Next adventure.

June 27th, 2011|

Rescued into love and back to life eight years ago; I will miss you terribly. Thanks to all at Pointe Isabel who stopped to pet her or ask about her.  This was one tough little engine that could; and did.

In Loving Memory of Honey Bee

June 6th, 2011|

When the staff of the Barstow Humane Society in Barstow, California first laid eyes on this tiny brindle French Bulldog girl, they knew that, as hard working and caring as they were, she needed more help than the overburdened and underfunded shelter could possibly provide. Eight years old, barely 15 pounds, extremely emaciated, dehydrated, suffering from a severe respiratory infection, little Heidi was too weak to walk and close to complete collapse. Her previous owner […]

In Loving Memory of Ch. Dejavu’s Annie Oakley

June 6th, 2011|

Annie was a canine that many of us as humans could learn a lesson from.  The best word to describe Annie was “Grace” she had it to spare.  She handled all situations with loving Grace, be it a child pulling on her ears or a puppy playing with her.  She was always gentle, sweet and kind. I know you should not assign human emotions to a dog, but how can I help it when […]

In Loving Memory of Zelda-Jolie

June 6th, 2011|

1998 – January 21, 2011
Zelda-Jolie left us today. She had been struggling from the effects of a pituitary tumor and each day was no better than the day before—-often worse. When I got her out of her crate this morning she tried to stand but just couldn’t. I knelt beside her and she looked up at me “My time here is over Mom, and I have to go now. Please help me to say […]

In Loving Memory of Bugsy

June 6th, 2011|

Our beloved baby, Bugsy, peacefully crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 3, after a mercifully brief illness. He leaves behind his grieving family, including his canine sisters, border collie Shadow and Spaetzle, a one-time passenger on the FBVillage Bus and gentle snuggler to this elderly gentledog. We will miss his fun spirit, joyful presence, his snorts and stretches, sweet demeanor, and preciously perfect eccentric ways. He inspired a thousand nicknames, a couple of songs, […]
