The Cash, she's so money!
Petite Cachou et Papa!
I feel all animals we invite into our hearts and lives, changes our souls for the better.
Cachou came into our lives by accident. One cold winter afternoon, we received a phone call from my mother-in-law about adopting an abandoned puppy. You see, her neighbor rescued Cachou from the side of the road. With no tags, no electronic chip, nothing, Martina (my mother in law's neighbor) asked if she knew anyone who would be interested in adopting her. That is where we come in.
We immediately fell in love, discussed training options (we are from the Victoria Stilwell school of thought, training using repetitive and positive reinforcement) and that night our little family became three.
We decided to call her Cachou (cashew) because she looked like a cashew when she curled up to sleep and at times she is a little nutty! Gradually, it was shortened it to The Cash.
Fast forward to two and a half years later, we can't imagine our lives without her.
As responsible pet owners, my husband and I take her on daily walks.
She has several admirers and is usually recognized by people around town,
so much so that she has become quite the little celebrity!
It's not surprising, as she has this uncanny ability to make people happy.
Here is a day in the life of Cachou!
Before she enters the Tabac, she stops to guilt people into giving her food.
Next, we stop at the Tabac for smokes and the paper.
The owner is a huge Cachou fan and vice versa!
She is spoiled by her fans from one side of the Quai to the other.
Everytime we go to the Tabac, the owner (pictured below) and his employees immediately stop what they are doing, even if there is a line of customers waiting, to love, to caress and give her treats. He told us that spoiling dogs is truly a pleasure, as they give us nothing but joy.
Cachou comes with us everywhere, including restaurants, public transportation, shopping centers, and even church! In fact, on Easter Sunday, she was blessed by the Vicar, although come to think of it, I think I guilted him into doing it. I told him, 'St. Francis would do it!' sucker...hahahahah!
French people are DOG CRAZY!
And it is true, dogs are the cat's pajamas!
And if you didn't know, DOG spelled backwards is GOD. Coincidence? I think not!
Dogs love us unconditionally! We are each other's blessings.
Cachou and I thank you for reading!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
