Meet ZaZa and ChaCha. They are French Bulldogs aka Frenchies. One’s a tyrant and the other is an angel. They are living a good life and being spoiled every single day. I know both of them are total sweeties because I’ve played with them numerous times. Their human parents are our good friends and neighbors. We have pup play dates and go on walkies. ZaZa and ChaCha adore attention and will brighten any day with their big happy smiles!
Check out these fun facts about them as told by their human mom, Ashley. Be sure to scroll down to see more fun photos of them.
|Why did you get your dog?|
|My dad had a Boston terrier named Bugsy when I was growing up. They are a pretty cool breed, but I wanted a solid white one… come to find out those are Frenchies (a distant cousin of the Boston Terrier) and they happen to have a bit more personality to boot!|
|Your Dog’s Breed or Mixed|
|How did you decide on your dog’s name?|
|I bet my boyfriend at the time (now husband) at a Hawks game, that if the Hawks won then we would get a Frenchie and name him after ZaZa Pachulia who was playing great that year.|
|What is your dog’s favorite toy?|
|ZaZa has 1 squeaky toy which is a wine bottle (very fitting in the Frost family) and ChaCha prefers antlers or water bottles.|
|What is your dog’s favorite treat?|
|Blue Buffalo meatballs|
|How do you spoil your dog?|
|We don’t have children so you can imagine how spoiled they are. I work from home so we play and lounge (their favorite activity) all day. We work on our tans together, they get steak when we have steak. They go on vacation with us (when it’s driving distance). They basically run our lives.|
|What’s a funny story about your dog or how does your dog make you laugh?|
|They have the best personalities when they’re actually awake. They play so rough for all of 3 minutes and then they’re pooped. ZaZa sleeps with us. He cries to get in the bed and then he growls as he’s put in the bed. Then he growls and nudges you to move so he can get in his spot and be comfortable. He also growls when I print things or try to open the cabinets in my office. He’s really the boss but he makes me laugh when he growls (you’re 25lbs and 12in tall, like what are you really going to do?!). ChaCha is our sweet little angel, she is literally the sweetest! However little ChaCha doesn’t like other dogs and will pick on the big dogs without hesitating. She backed my cousin’s boxer into a corner one day. She was over him visiting for the afternoon.|
|How do you have fun and play with your dog?|
|They don’t play for long but ZaZa loves to fetch. Either his frisbee or his footy, lately I’ve been throwing his wine bottle but the frisbee is his favorite fetch toy. ChaCha could care less. Once in a blue moon she’ll get a wild hair and chase him outside but it’s pretty rare. She sticks to her bones and bottles.|
|Is there anything special or unique about your dog? If so, what is it?|
|We got our dogs from the same breeder, ZaZa’s original name was Prince (incredibly fitting) and ChaCha’s name was Penny. When I flew to Missouri to get ZaZa the breeder said: “I hope you can handle a dog with attitude”… boy was she right! When I went to get ChaCha, a year and a half later, she said: “this little girl is nothing but sweetness”… right she was again! ZaZa is a squirrel sheriff and ChaCha never lost her puppy skin. ChaCha knows when you’re upset and will try to break up any argument by climbing in your lap and pawing at you. I swear she could be one of those emotional support/medical support dogs.|
|What else would you like to share about your dog?|
|They snore (even when they’re awake), pass wind, and sleep constantly but we wouldn’t have it any other way.|
