2011 Bichon Frisé Puppies:
Zoe became a part of our family after our first Bichon Frise passed away. She is about nine weeks old and getting more curious and braver by the day. Her high energy keeps us busy, but after a good tug of war and run around the yard, she is more than happy to curl up on your lap or snuggle next to her standard poodle big brother. She constantly attempts to jump at the ears of her new play mate who is slowly but surely getting used to the new baby of the house. She also loves to jump in or even lay down in her water bowl on hot days.
We’re looking forward to the day when she realizes that the dining room is not her private bathroom, but until then we’re thrilled to wake up to her wagging tail and tiny kisses. he Bichon Frise is of Mediterranean ancestry. His oldest ancestor is the Barbet, or Water Spaniel, from which the name Barbichon cam, later shortened to Bichon. Also descended from the Barbet are the Caniche, or Poodle, and the Maltese. They have certain similarities because of their common ancestry, but each long ago became a separate breed.

These lively and affectionate dogs found their way from the Mediterranean area to the Canary Islands, specifically to the Island of Tenerife. They probably traveled as the companions of Spanish sailors, who may have used them as items of barter.
