I wonder if many of you know of Joan Briggs' series of Bichon Frise books?

 arrow These are not your typical "ABOUT THE BICHON FRISE" book, what with history, standard, grooming et al.
icon12 These are heartwarming stories about 4 Bichons who took over Joan & Derek's lives (as you would expect Bichons to....)
 icon12 These are moving chronicles that anyone *owned* by a Bichon will identify with.




Inspired by Miss Abigail (who has since gone to the Rainbow Bridge), Joan released the first (in an expanding series of) Bichon Frise book(s) in 1996.? If you're as besotted about the breed in general and about your own Bichon as I am, you'll love Joan's books.? Filled with love, humor and sensitivity, these Bichon Frise books ~ 8 to-date! ~ will bring smiles (some chuckles too!) and perhaps tears.? Treat yourself and order one (you gotta start with BOOK #1 THE BICHON BUG) today... call it an early Christmas present *wink*


I have all 8 books btw.... I have read them all and love every single one of them.? Some books I have read thrice over.

If & when you do order the books, and enjoy them, tell other (Bichon) friends about it original
 angel 10% of THE BICHON BUG's cover price is donated to Bichon Frise Rescue in the UK (in memory of Miss Abigail)


Visit the Briggs' website for order information.?

Sorry about the Internet-lingo....

IMO stands for In My Opinion blush
IMHO means In My Humble Opinion whistling

Now you know original

Had to squeeze my (big-fat tongue1) opinion in the title, hence "IMO" blush


PS: Here's your sprinkle from sorcerer for today!

Hi everyone-i have read all the Joan briggs books-they are fantastic!! Just come back from our hols and miffy went to my mum and she got so spoilt!!! She has put on weight and now is unable to fit through the cat flap1 Mum loves Miffy to bits but I think too many treats have been given. She cried when i had to have miffy back which made me feel bad! i know if our Australia trip goes to plan then Miffy will be loved so much by my mum so I believe she will be better staying in England with her but  obviously i will have to remind her that she must not overfeed!! who could not love these beautiful little dogs anyway!! I will off course miss miffy so much if I go to Australia but could'nt put her through the flight or the quarentine :clap:I like the updated site-well done! thumbup
