(Guest post from Karin Failla)
If you happen to be a Frenchie in sunny Southern California, Rosie’s Beach in Long Beach was the place to be seen last weekend! Yes, the beach!
Over 120 of the cutest French bulldogs gathered at the beach for the 3rd Annual Reindeer Romp to frolic in the Pacific Ocean, get their photo taken with Surfin’ Santa, participate in an awesome raffle and costume contest and go home with a tubular gift bag full of the tastiest treats! The event, spearheaded by Cherie the Surf Dog’s mom, Amy Nykolayko, benefitted the French Bulldog Rescue Network. Surfer Girl Cherie was adopted from FBRN three years ago by Amy, her husband Dan and Frenchie brother, Ace.
FBRN's mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home French Bulldogs in need from commercial breeding kennels, import brokers, public shelters, private rescue groups, owners and Good Samaritans and place them in furever homes!
The holiday meet up was attended by Instagram-notable snorters such as Mr. Boba Bear, Weston the Frenchie, Button the Frenchie, Roscoe, Kody and Dexter, Francis, Pierre Don't Care, among others! It even got the attention of the local news!
We were able to chat with Amy about the tireless work she has done to organize the event that raises money for Frenchies looking for their forever home!
