Just in time for the upcoming French Bulldog Club of America National Specialty in Topeka, Kan., Editor In Chief Dan Sayers takes on a tour of the dog sometimes referred to as “a clown in the cloak of a philosopher.” Dan dug up some interesting facts about the history of this compact companion. It’s hard not to smile when reading about the French Bulldog. As Dan writes, “With its bat ears and screwed tail, the breed’s physical charms – and affectionate nature – have always seemed more than mere mortals can resist.”
People deal with the grief of losing a beloved dog in all kinds of ways. Some commemorate their companions with memorial books chronicling the dog’s life, while others keep a bit of ash close to their hearts in a necklace. Graphic artist Julie Bender decided that no urn was quite right for her Zoë’s ashes, so she decided to use pyrography – the art of wood burning – to turn one into something special for the dog that got her over her divorce and out into the world. She had no idea it end up turning her into a professional fine artist. We think you’ll be inspired by her story.
