keepin’ clean

The first year I had Bunny, I had a lot to learn as far as keeping her clean and making it a routine so she didn’t get any infections.  Multiple vet visits later, I realized the bully breed does need special care.   She was new to me and everything in my eyes was the biggest deal, ha.  I learned to deal and maintain by cleaning her and keeping her skin protected.  Here’s a couple of must have’s for my frenchie.

1.  wet wipes- A MUST.  constantly having to wipe her wrinkles on her face so dirt doesn’t build up and well as her b e h i n d.  she was getting a lot of skin irritation so I always make sure she’s all wiped up and clean especially when she rolls in goose poop.  I don’t take her to softball without em!

2.vaseline – her poor little nose get’s so dry and crusty.  this is literally a magical fix and after 2 days of putting it on she’s good as new.

3.  HER BONE- what would we do without it? probably sleep more but she loves the dang thing.  sometimes it scares me how hard she chews it and i swear she’s not going to have any teeth by the time she’s 3.  although she does need her teeth cleaned because she has stinky breath, this keeps some crud off.

4.  nail clippers – bunny scratches me bloody when i walk in the door whether it’s for 5 minutes or 7 hours.  i’ve tried to train her (probably not in the right way) but she can’t seem to break the habit.  first it was cute, now it just hurts.  nonetheless keeping her nails trimmed saves us all.

I had to learn a lot having a french bull dog for the first time, let alone it being my first solo dog.  Other than making sure she’s clean and happy her other biggest hurdle is being in the heat.  It really is hard to keep her super active in the summer or can’t take her to the park cause it’s too hot for her to walk.

I really did end up with a good girl.  Doesn’t chew or go potty in the house.  I’d say her biggest weakness is other leashed dogs when she’s walking.  She’s developed this weird aggression at first until i let her get close then she wants to play but a lot of dogs aren’t always down with her dominance.   But I mean, look at her…

  1. You are a wonderful Frenchie momma! Bunny looks great and I love her coat 🙂 You may want to look into the Cleveland All Breed Training Club. They offer obedience classes and you and Bunny will learn a lot. They have a web site, just google it. It shouldn’t be too far from you as it is only a couple of minutes from our shop. Kisses for Bunny, and hugs to my Frenchie momma!
