The Bichons and Me

Aren't they cute!  Left to right: Holly, Snickers, Bessie, Gracie, Rosie.  Have to admit that photo was pure luck!  Gracie 11, was my first Bichon Frise.  Had to have another so along came Rosie 9.  Snickers, the man was Mom's Bichon Frise until she went to assisted living.  That's when Snickers came to live with us.  Three Bichons and Me was almost my blog title. My friends Valerie and Judy heard about two Bichons that needed a home because their owner had passed away.  Don't know what I was thinking saying "YES" I want them.  But I am so glad I did.  Holly 8 (and presently on my lap) and Bessie 6 are the two rescues. So that's how my blog title became Five Bichon's and me.  I feel blessed to have them in my life.

Thanks for letting me show off my kids!
