Meet Bijou, our new rescue Bouvier des Flandres
Bijou is our third rescue Bouvier pictured here on the porch with her new siblings (she is the second one from the left with natural ears) She is a gorgeous purebred love muffin. I'll never understand how or why someone can be cruel to animals especially something as sweet as Bijou. She was found living underneath a single wide trailer in Tennessee. She didn't even know how to eat out of a bowl. Her food had to be thrown on the floor in order for her to eat it. It makes me crazy! After six months with her foster family Bijou learned to love, trust, and eat out of a bowl! Bijou joins our other Bouvs, Daisy the baby (we can't tell her that Bijou is younger because Daisy will always be a baby), CBear our male, and Sadie the grand dame.
So far the transition has been fairly smooth. Bijou is enjoying the farm life running around like a gazelle, barking at all of the critters, and trying to help with all the farm chores. The chickens did not like it one bit when Bijou thought I needed help getting the eggs yesterday. She walked right into the hen house and scared them to death. I doubt I'll even have any eggs today! Bijou loves swimming in the pond with the ducks and she also likes making sure all the horses are in their correct stalls. She is quite the dog and we are so proud to have her as part of our canine family. I can't forget to add the beagles, Brigitte and Beau. They think Bijou is pretty fun too!
