Another in a Long String of Desperate Pleas for a Life Model

Since I've been unable to find a local French Bulldog and have exhausted my photos of those I've bumped into, but don't have contact information for, I'm reduced to drawing them from memory—not something that's satisfying to me.

So if you're local and have a French Bulldog please contact me. I need a life-model.

As for the one-eyed thing, it's a theme, you've probably noticed.

    Roz, if you Google you’ll find listings for local breeders. Maybe one of them would be willing to work with you!

    Miss T, many people have suggested this to me, thanks. But when I did that a couple years ago I didn’t get anything useful and got the national organization and no one seemed interested in helping me find someone local, so I felt I hit a wall. Obviously I wasn’t doing something right, but the result is that didn’t work. I’ll try it again sometime, but I’m not hopeful based on the last experience.

    Ok Roz, here you go. I found a local meet-up group that is for frenchie owners.
    Looks like you can join their group through Facebook and they do play dates and stuff. Contact the coordinator and see when the next date and location is. Good luck and happy Frenchie sketching!

    Suzanne, you’re the best. I don’t know how you did this but thank you. I’ll contact them as you say, and keep you posted.

    P.S. Suzanne, I don’t know what is happening, but I went to Google and searched “Twin Cities French Bulldogs” after you found this link, and basically this link and an bunch of others that I’ve never seen, even though I’ve used those exact words, came up. I just must have a “different” internet.
    You’re still the best!
