    Well, they are just too cute for words! They make me think of my Boudreaux. He is a cockpoo…and is my baby…my rotten baby.

    I, too, have the sweetest Bichon named Keeper! She’s the light and love of my husbands’ and my life!! We are so blessed to have her and she makes our days fuller with her presence. She goes to work with me everyday and has a huge following of friends that drop by to see her. Chloe and Gracie are beautiful and I know you are happiest when they’re with you, too. I love the photos of them!

    I have a Bichon named Jazz who we rescued about 3 years ago. He is definitely a joy and a delight. I can’t imagine my life without such a faithful friend! Bichons just have the sweetest disposition, don’t they?! Vicki V

    I, too, loved reading about Chloe and Gracie. I laughed and laughed. We have a little rescue dog (shih tzu named Winston) and he also is scared of the scarest things – plastic bags and man hole covers. He truly brightens our days. Sandee Meeks

    Nice Bichons! I have a house full of the fluffs

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch simply because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this matter here on your blog.

    Your baby poodles are adorable! Chloe and Gracie must bring so many thrills into your life – I had poodles for years (amber, usually) and talk about bonding, they become your very best friends. These two dolls’ faces are beautiful, and their coat – well, PERFECT! I really enjoy your page/blog! I was drawn to your FB page first because of the name – we’re boaters as well – sailboats. We’re in Florida and love it! Look forward to getting to know you better. Enjoy every moment of your life. Fondly, Mary Back

    When I adopted a new rescue the only requirement was that it would go in the kayak with me. I fostered Jimee Jane for a month and she is perfect. She jumps in my kayak before I do.

    Great pictures of Gracie and Chloe! I have loved many Bichons over the years and currently my heart belongs to Cha Cha, a precious 2 year old Bichon. They are the sweetest babies with the greatest dispositions. Congratulations on having your heart stolen forever!

    I have two sweet little terriers, Holly Noel ( a Westie delivered the week before Christmas) and Angus McDuff (a scottie that came the following summer) They are the loves of my life and really keep things interesting at my house on the lake. I really enjoyed reading about your dogs. Kym
