frenchie freak-outs.

at home, hunter is the best dog in the world. out in public… it’s a crap shoot. the guy is on edge all. the. time. 
if we’re in the car, he freaks out when cars or people walking get too close. if we’re on a walk and there’s a leaf that blows, bird, cat or heaven forbid a dog, he goes into complete meltdown mode. he loves to play with other dogs, but when he sees them from a distance he gets soooo excited and screams. people come out of their homes to see what’s going on and shoot us looks like we’re the worst parents in the world (or beating our dog).
those of you who have watched huntie, walked with us or spent time outside our home’s four walls with my little prince have experienced the screaming frenchie and embarrassment that comes along with it. 
on a recent walk, we saw a dog so i got the camera rolling to capture some of the screams. i’m not exaggerating when i say that this is a very mild meltdown. i promise i’ll capture a full-blown freak out soon. 
so, who wants to take huntie for a walk? 
angela, nick… matt, mallary… bring back frenchie-sitting memories?

    Oh does it ever! Yes, I can contest this is VERY mild. He was in full force freak out when visiting M&M. I’ll never forget that evil woman in our complex come running up to us SCREAMING “STOP – what are you doing to that dog”. I’m like “look women, he’s just talking”!!! I’m sure we’re still being kibitzed about as those evil Frenchie beaters. On a similar note, my mom sent me this link the other day – its a “singing Frenchie” – looks like vocals run in the breed.

    The countdown to our little man is on! 2 weeks from tomorrow. EEK… XO! M&M

    Oh my goodness! My Frenchie, Duncan, only does this when the pool man comes! I saw the cutest Frenchies at the rest stop in Dateland (LOL) on the way to San Diego over the weekend. A black and white mama named Paris and her cream baby who was unnamed yet. I have to remind myself everyday that 2 bullies is enough; I can’t adopt every one I see!
