Celebrate BULLDOGS ARE BEAUTIFUL DAY with fun digital wallpaper!

April 21st is Bulldogs Are Beautiful Day!

So I made some digital wallpapers to celebrate the breed! Inspired by my FASHION FRENCHIES book series, FETCHING FRENCHIES (hand-drawn by yours truly) combines the cuteness of Frenchie faces with a fashionable and fun pattern! Comes in 12 color variations for device and desktop, including “Puppy Vuitton”, “Funky Freeze Dark” and “Goldscaled”.

What could he be looking at?
