Hi there! I am Bunta the Frenchie. Welcome to my blog!

I am a 5-year-old male french bulldog, living in Kyoto, Japan with Dad and Mom. We own an online shop for dog goods (but it's only in Japan, sorry!) and I am a sales manager :D.

Mom(Yumi) and I have been keeping blogs (in Japanese) for more than 4 years, and now we have made lots of furiends all over Japan.

One day, I thought, "Hmm, maybe we should do it in English so that we can make furiends from all over the world!!" That's why we started this blog.

But!! We just didn't have a clue how we can let people & doggies know we are here.

Thanks to Stella, Gunther and Betty, who were my very first follower!!, we came to know Brutas the Frenchie, and thanks to Brutus, we came to know this perfect event for us to make new furiends!!

This is a wonderful event that Twinkie planed. Thank you Twinkie for organizing such a pawsome event!!

I suppose most of you who visit my blog are from Twinkie's GABE lists, and already familiar with the rules, but in case you don't, here is what it is:

The rules are quite simple. If you want to participate, you to have to place the event's logo on your sidebar, email me a link to the post with the event's logo (yes same logo but on your actual post) and instructions for your readers. You just have to figure out your one or more giveaways--that's up to you. I will then glance at your post and if it's G-rated and satisfies the two conditions, I'll post it on my blog for all the others to share and be able to visit with ease. Those of you who don't want to give away anything, can still participate. You can just use the links to get to meet new furiends and if you like, leave a comment (only one per post) so that you can become eligible to get the giveaway. This is a blogging event for bloggers. This is important as we, the active participants, will need to contact you at the end of the event to find out where to mail the prizes. We are all going to be winners here. We'll either gain new friends or prizes or both.

As we would love to be an active pawticipant, we got a giveaway!

REBECCA BONBON is a Frenchie girl. She is famous in Japan (well, I think she is at least among Frencies in Japan) .

Size: W50cm (20 inches) x H37cm(14.6 inches) x D21cm(8.3 inches)
100% Cotton (Inner Polyester 100%)


Please leave a comment on this post!!!

Taking time difference into consideration, I will pick a winner at random on the 19th of April, one day after the event closed (as Japan is ahead of US and most of other countries), and will announce who the winner is on the 20th.

Thank you again for visiting us and have fun!!!

BUNTA & Yumi
