Today I’m going to take a quick detour from the world of delicious food and drink and introduce you to the newest member of the Mince Republic family, Albus. Albus Bleu Shane. (High five and ten points to Gryffindor if you knew he was named after Dumbledore from Harry Potter!)
Albus is a nine-month-old blue-pied French Bulldog that I got from a breeder out here in Southern California. After being without a pup since my childhood lab, Buddy, passed away, I’ve been wanting a dog. More specifically, I had been wanting a French Bulldog after falling in love with those big ears and soulful eyes. So after a year of wanting and waiting, the pieces fell into place and I finally found this little guy.
I went to see the puppies and immediately fell in love and knew I had to have him (despite the fact that he was only the first Frenchie pup I had seen). He came home when he was four and a half months old on December 26–the best Christmas present I could have ever asked for.
Since he’s been home, he’s become my best pal. He is silly, stubborn, loving, playful, mischievous and a million and one other wonderful things. I can’t imagine life without him.
You may now enjoy an absurd amount of photos of my favorite boy.
Oh and yes, of course I became one of those people who has an Instagram for their pup. You can find Albus on instagram @thealbusbleu.
