First things first, puppies are HARD. I've had dogs before, but after a six year break, I'd forgotten just how much hard work they are. We spent the first three weeks taking it in turns to sleep with him downstairs as he cried and cried when left. French Bulldogs have the strangest cry I've ever heard. It's like a cross between a newborn, and strangled parrot. I didn't want to scare him or make him feel unsettled so it took some time but now we simply flip the light off and go to bed. Thankfully! Neither Tom or I are any good if we are sleep deprived so I'm glad he's got the idea of bedtime. Tom found it hard to adjust and we had a very stressful few weeks before he bonded and decided he was 'alright'
TOP TIP: Get a babygate if you have any areas you want to block off or restrict access. Life saver.
We researched French Bulldogs before we decided on the breed and they were one of the best to fit in with our lifestyle. Basically a lazy little piglet. They love human contact and being part of the family. He's our little shadow and loves any fuss shown. And he's spoilt rotten!
If you'd like to keep up to date with Pablo and his giant ears, I've set up an Instagram account PABLOTHEFRENCHY - was wary of the fact my KLGHAIR account is more about hair and the blog and thought my puppy spam would be better in one place. Plus it's a lovely way for me to see progress of how he grows and changes.
