I must agree with you - these books are the best!  thumbup In fact, reading them help to encourage me to get my second bichon. It's been awhile, I may just have to dig them out and reread them - again!   nodding

I have a copy of Joan Briggs last book ( and understand she is NOT going to write any more).  It's called "The 5th Bichon" and it was given to me by a good friend along with some other "Bichon"-related stuff to sell to raise money for Toby's cataract op. Sadly it never sold. If anyone would like it I will post it to them.

I've read all Joans books and loved them, some of mine are still winging their way around the World I believe.  Sad that she won't be writing another.

I have just come across this thread and think these books look fabulous! I am trying to figure how much $120 US dollars would be in NZ dollars and how much they would cost to order from the Uk to get to NZ  frustrated
All those newies who havent seen Ed reading a goodnite story to Bianca should take a look. So very sweet! Kiss

Lorraine i dont read books but Lainey gave me a loan of her Joan Briggs books a few years ago.

They are really good, i loved reading about how she got her first bichon and all the lovely walks they went on. Then she was bitten by the bichon bug and one was not enough, then they got involved in rescue. I could just picture some of the things happening and visited their website and read about their fluffs there  thumbup
They make you  Laughing  thinking and  crybaby

This was a walk down memory lane blush....... can't believe I first posted this in 2005!

Lorraine, you can use this website arrow www.xe.com to do currency conversion .  US$120 is about NZ$170.  It would be money well-spent IMO blush.  Derek & Joan Briggs do a lot for Bichon Frise Rescue in the U.K. U.K..  The books have many stories about the rescues fluff that go through their doors.  You'll also learn how Chas fluff (bless him, now at Rainbow Bridge angel) does home-checks of potential adopters.

I said in Susan's/Missy's fluff Mother's Day present thread that I don't buy books anymore (ie. fiction / non-fiction books).  But I buy Bichon books and will nodding keep them for eternity.  Bianca has read has been read to wink1.... the last book in the series. thumbsup  She enjoys a good bedtime Bichon book story!

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.?

Click on button above.

 

I had the read The Bichon Bug and absolutely LOVED it.  This post reminded me to order more - books 2 and 3 are on their way.  Can't wait!
