Summer Recap 2: Dog Ice Cream at Fell + Cole


My Mom really likes ice cream. So, my Dad searched online for some dog-friendly ice cream shops. To our suprise, he found one that not only allows dogs, but makes ice cream for dogs. The shop is called Fell+Cole, and it is located in Hongdae. You can imagine how exciting that was for me.

My Favorite Activity: Soccer


Being a Frenchie, I definitely have that French Bulldog stubbornness. I understand all of my mom and dad’s commands, but if I don’t feel like it, I’ll pretend like I didn’t hear them. But there are two ways to make me do what ever mom and dad ask: 1. be holding my favorite treat; or 2. be holding my soccer ball.

Sights and Smells of Spring


After a cold winter, our walks take longer, because there are so many things to see and smell (mostly smell). And there are a lot more people out on the street who stop to pet me or tell me how cute I am.

Mountain Climbing in Hoodie Weather – Part 1: Dogok Park (도곡 공원)


There are two small mountains within walking distance of our apartment.  Seoul is nice that way; it is a huge urban metropolis, but there are plenty of nice parks, mountains, etc. all around.

My dad recently returned from a trip to his home town, NYC.  He got me two hoodies, which are perfect for early spring.  This is the first one.  Here are some pics from when dad and I went to Dogok Park, one of the mountains near our apartment.

Fabulous Feather Boa at Cafe Inu (카페 이누)


Whenever my mom and dad go to Hongdae in Seoul, they like to go to Cafe Inu for a salad, sandwich, and coffee because they allow dogs.  Unfortunately, I need to stay in a doggie high chair, but I suppose it’s better than not being allowed in at all.

Here I am in the high chair wearing my velvet coat with a white, sparkly tutu and my feather boa.
