This affectionate teddy bear come-to-life has been a treasured lapdog for hundreds of years, gracing royal laps and royal portraits as far back as the 1500s. Yet the Bichon Frisé (Bee-shohn Free-zay) is also a comedian and loves the spotlight; it feeds off laughter and smiles when it is being silly and goofy. Even when a Bichon is all business, like in the show ring, its charming and sweet fluffy face still pulls at our heartstrings.
Bernese Mountain Dog
‘Berners’, as adoring fans call them, are chunk-a-chunks of burnin’ love. Check out those enormous, sturdy paws; they’re sure signs that this pup is going to be big. A berner male can grow into an 40-65kg frame, while a female is slightly more dainty at 35-45kg. What’s inside the XL Berner package? They’re super chilled and notably patient around children. Sweet and affectionate, they are devoted to their family and enjoy being house dogs. They love to frolic in the snow and even pull kids on sleds. Take note: hot climates and heavy coats don’t mix.
Can teddy bears look like baby foxes? We think so! Their double coat is fluffilicious and Poms have the expressive eyes and button nose of a teddy bear. Even better, they adore spending time with you, snuggling on your lap or being carried in a tote. A day on the town without a paw touching the footpath – while onlookers swoon over their cute little face – is a good day in their book. At a full-grown weight of just 3.5kg, you can alternate sides and tone both of your arms. It’s a win-win for both of you! One thing to know, though, Pomeranian puppies are prone to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), so pet parents should feed them often to prevent this serious condition.
