    hello welcome, and congratulations on having a wonderful ball of fluff.
    we are the proud parents of Toby, our 6 and a half year old bichon male. they are wonderful friends and they do thrive from attention, as they wee originally bred as circus dogs you find you will be able to train the puppy very easily. they are very intelligent dogs, as well as being a little bit dull occassionally, lol happy times ahead. xx

    Hi and welcome.:D

    We have two Bichons, a male aged 5 years and a female puppy who is 17 weeks. They are great little dogs and loads of personality.
    Can't wait to see some pictures of Roxy.:D

    I need pictures!!!!!!!!:D We have been thinking about a Bichon for our 2nd dog.

    My sister lived near a woman with 2 bichons. She would bring them in the car when she would go to the shops. She left them in the car as they did not like stangers. They VERY quickly learned that if they both stood on the horn it would embarass her into coming out to take them home.

    I hope she doesn't leave them in the car when it's hot because it doesn't take long for a dog to die in a hot car.:(

    Yes they are quick learners when it suits them. :laugh:

    :confused:

    Of course she doesn't. Anyone with half a brain cell knows that now and considering this woman gave up work to be with her dogs (!!!) I've no doubt these dogs are her entire life.

    I still can't work out how there is still even a single death a year from dogs being left in a hot car. It just absolutely baffles me. :(
