We have been in the breed since 2005. We took up the hobby of showing French Bulldog in conformation in 2007 after attending the 2005 and 2006 French Bulldog National Specialty shows in Sacramento and Tennessee. We realized we could have a fun hobby that combined our love of the breed and a fun activity to do together and with our dogs. Since then, Michele has been active in AKC agility for years. Michele has been active in the Northern California French Bulldog Club for several years and started volunteering with the club a couple years before she actively starting showing in conformation. Over the years we have participated in several roles with the club, Newsletter Editors for a couple years, Advertising Chair, Catalog Chair, and Trophy Chair. We are also members of the national club, the French Bulldog Club of America.
Our further involvement in the breed with conformation and showing was greatly helped by our friend and mentor, Kathy Dannel Vitcak of Jackpot! French Bulldogs. We admired several of the dogs from her line and Michele developed a relationship with Kathy while working on her book of french bulldog photography, A French Bulldog for Every Season.
