January 1996 – June 2008

From the first time Carol & I met Chance, Fran always called him “mom’s Chancie pup”, and he grew up knowing he was special…always being the ruling male in the house.

Competing in his very first dog show, he brought home the BOS ribbon, but it was soon decided that he really didn’t want to be in the shows. After all, who would be looking after the family at home while he was away?

His real ‘claim to fame’ came in 2007 when he was the June calendar boy for FBV’s Old Frenchie Calendar.

I know he’ll be patiently waiting by the bridge for his mom, and I know he will one day come running and jumping into the arms of his Uncle Charlie – just like the old days.
