One of our dogs, Arlo, is a Frenchie, and she is a beast.

Because of her personality and her gray coloring, she literally looks like the rhinoceros in our pack! She barrels through all of our other pets to get out the door first, to the food first, and to run over any of our animals that she thinks we are going to pet first.

I promise you, 'floofer' is NOT IN HER VOCABULARY.

But you better believe she sploots!
