July 1 Frenchie Walk

Frenchie Walk at Lincoln Park
Perhaps it was the hot weather that led to a small turnout for our July 1 Frenchie Walk.
Half a dozen Frenchies and a Boston hung out in the shade of Lincoln Park
and took a short walk on the beachfront path.

Maxx's puppies

Meet the newest addition to our family, Jaxx!

Maxx wins a Group 4

Maxx wins Group 4 in Yakima
On the weekend of June 2-3 in Yakima, Maxx showed beautifully in the
100+ degree heat, winning fourth place in the Non-Sporting Group on Saturday.
His cold coat, which he thinks of as his Superman cape, kept him very comfortable.
(A cold coat is a thin chamois coat that you soak with water.
Evaporation keeps the dog nice and cool.)
