Ooo la la, meet Snoopy!

Salut mes potes!

Je voudrais vous présenter mon nouveau copain, Snoopy. C'est une Fox-terrier d'une année habitant en Belgique. Elle vivait en premier dans une famille anglaise qui a habité en France mais Ils ont dû retourner en Angleterre et n'ont pas pris Snoopy avec eux. Ils ont rendu Snoopy à son éleveur pour lui trouver une nouvelle maison. Sa photo a été éditée sur le Forum Fox-Terriers. Elle a alors voyagé 1200km de France en Belgique pour commencer sa nouvelle vie. Vous pouvez lire le récit de son voyage sur son blog. Click here.

Astute readers may wonder if I've suddenly become superclever (as well as superhandsome) and can now bark in French as well as English. Mmm, it's an interesting thought, but alas no, I had to rely on my good pal Faya to help me. Gros bisous Faya!

Do you need some help reading it?
Ok here goes...I've jazzed it up a bit so it's not a direct translation...

Hello pals,
Meet my new friend, Snoopy. She's a one-year old WFT who lives in Belgium. Her first home was with an English family living in France but they had to go back to England and decided not to take her with them. Instead, they returned her to her breeder to find a new home. Her photo was published on the Fox Terrier Forum where she was chosen by her current owners. She then travelled 1200km from France to Belgium to begin her new life. You can read about her journey on her blog. Click here.

Please go and bark hello, either in English or French.

Erm, there are unconfirmed rumours that Snoopy may in fact be a boy not a girl. C'est la vie!
BREAKING NEWS: Snoopy has just confirmed via email that he certainly is a boy! Oops!

Randi said...

Awww...Snoopy is very pretty! I hope she loves her new home in Belgium!

Love & Licks,

Eric said...

Jackson. That Snoopy's a cutie.Is she/he wearing a blue or pink collar? That's the easiest way to tell if a boy or girl remember?

Wags, Eric x

Georgeous said...

Hi Jackson, i hope your new pal will be happy in their new home. I'm gonna go sniff them out in a minute.
Isn't Faya a lovely girl, she has a place in my heart.
Love 'n' snuffs

Petey said...

Ahem, actually Eric, that's not the EASIEST way to tell if a dog is a boy or a girl. (Jackson, I thought you were going to have the "birds & the bees talk" with Eric?)

Anyhow, I was very impressed to see that you're tri-lingual (dog, English and French) and a bit relieved to see you used a translation service!

Vive les chiens!!!

Ton ami,

Pierre le Petit

Just wanted ta say we popped on over ta say Hi ta Snoopy....Gram used English as her highschool French is really rusty and anything she wrote in that language might turn into something along the lines of porno without her even knowing it.It is great that Snoopy has a new home. But ya did impress me initially when I saw the French paragraph.....I always wanted ta be bilingual but I have enough trouble speakin'dog....
