Nova was four months old and obsessed with people and play when we met on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall last week.
We spotted this tiny French Bulldog with obvious spunk and personality heading our way. Our Westie Poppy sat down to wait for an initial meeting with this new neighbor.
Saying hello to Nova reminded us of the very first Frenchie we recall seeing up close. We were with our first Westie Sassy having breakfast at a place called Dotie's. The guys at the next table had an adorable Frenchie and told us all about this lovely breed.
Over the past decade, the breed has mushroomed in popularity and we've had the pleasure of watching quite a few Frenchies grow up and become charming neighbors.
Keep up that charm, Nova! You'll make a lot of friends around Boston.
