Falling for Frenchies
In the last year, the sidewalks of New York have seen a noticeable increase in pedigree. No, not the Park Avenue population, I’m talking dogs. And not just any breed – the adorable, rabbit-eared, squishy-faced French bulldog. And since pet owners truly love their furry companions, the pups are beginning to pop up in home design.

In 1906, the French bulldog was the 5th most popular dog in America and that was before they were even "officially" a worldwide breed. Although we didn't hear much from them in the 20th century they are making their comeback now! In fact, according to the American Kennel Club, the French bulldog has made the largest leap on the popularity charts in the last decade zooming from 71st to 21st place. And it doesn't look like they are stopping there.
