𝐃𝐚𝐲 𝐓𝐰𝐨 (countdown to a very Frenchie 🐾 🎄 Christmas!): Pearl is practicing how to be a good girl sitting on Santa’s lap while wearing her penguin pajamas. I am so excited to be in Paris for the entire holiday season. And it is so fun to share it with the girls, who LOVE 💕 children, lights, animations, toys, and games.
In this Frenchie advent calendar, we are counting down the days to when the girls get to meet Santa 🎅 and open their presents. I have been collecting little stuffed animals, their favorite toy, and will wrap each one for them to open on Christmas day.
Pearl is the oldest of the two sisters and the wisest. The intellect this one has is crazy – she understands both English and French, Pearl is incredibly empathetic and self-aware (if that is even possible in a dog??). She lays down in front of toddlers so that they know they can approach her. 🥰
And her best friend? Pearl has fallen in love with an African grey parrot 🦜that lives on Ile de Cité. Whenever she sees him, Pearl sits like a statue, not moving a muscle, so that he will come to kiss her. Her eyes get all wide when the parrot approaches her – I swear they turn into big ol’ hearts as her eyelashes flutter, completely head-over-heels for this bird. 𝐒𝐰𝐢𝐩𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐞𝐞 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐥 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐁𝐅𝐅.
Pearl has always sat like a baby in my lap. She used to sit with me every morning during the first Covid confinement, and we would share a banana, her smacking away like her dentures were out. 🤣 Frenchies aren’t chewers, and their teeth are a bit of a mess.
Please note: If you are interested in this breed, please research their health issues, especially IVDD.

Bisous and big holiday hugs 🤗 from Paris, France,
Shannon, Pearl, and Rose
🇫🇷 France 🇫🇷, forever.
