Seeing the special in French Bulldogs

My seeing something ‘more’ like the shadowy hues of blue on white fur, appear as a classic almost Wedgwood tone in my strong-outlined and pastel-colored, new portrait of a Frenchie.

Just today I spotted one of these popular breeds chasing after, and retrieving a Frisbee; an exploit which makes me realize despite looking a little pug-like, French Bulldogs have a very different temperament. (The pug I know, would just happily watch a Frisbee.)

But what I’m also ‘seeing’ through the desirable personality traits specific to one dog breed and yet another characteristic nature always part of another breed, is something fun yet profound. As I explain in the video below, I like to think that the “Creator of all those reliable companions known as Frenchies,” inserted a touch of His nature in them, and that’s a reason why so many of us appreciate man’s best friend.
