Ernie


Ernie is our cutie brindle, French Bulldog chunk.



Why did you decide on a French Bulldog?
Jon and I did lots of research on different dog breeds and quickly decided a Frenchie was the perfect fit for our family (we actually decided we wanted a Frenchie over a year before we got Ernie). As much as we love big dogs, we wanted a smaller dog that would love to cuddle. I had never seen a French Bulldog in person until the day we picked up Ernie but I heard so much about how funny their personalities are! They don't need much exercise and even though we are an active couple, it makes for relaxing nights when Ernie passes out after 10 minutes of playing fetch. Frenchies cannot naturally reproduce and have to be artificially inseminated because they are so top heavy and they are all born via C-section, making them quite expensive but SO worth it. Ernie has brought so much joy to our lives, we are crazy about him!




How did you come up with his name?
One look at a Frenchie and you are instantly smiling. Their wrinkley faces remind me of an old man so we knew we couldn't name him something trendy. We made a giant list of possible names (my list was about 50 names long) and ended up narrowing it down to 5 each. You can read our list of names in this post. We decided that his first name would be Ernesto because it sounds so funny and you can say it in a seductive, telenovela type of way. His middle name you may ask, came after an inside joke between Jon and his best friend Jon years ago passing Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Waco...men!! Here is Ernie's first picture

    So cute! Is yours a runt or a mini? Or just still a puppy?

    My frenchie is 12 pounds but he's a runt so he'll always be tiny.
