Picture it- just another sunny Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, lounging around the pool at the Mondrian Hotel’s Sky Bar with a cocktail in hand enjoying the view and the vibe… what could be better?

Frenchies! 

We attended LA Frenchies of Instagram party, a meet and greet where we got to snuggle and play with the most popular Frenchies on Instagram. Hosted by Nikki Starr, founder of  WheresTheFrenchie.com, we enjoyed Cookie Shots by The Dirty Cookie and coffee by Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co.  The latter is committed to support no kill rescue organizations and donates 20% of all proceeds to provide safe-havens for pups between homes.  

Nikki introduced us to: @FrenchieLeo, @MrBobaBear, @Auggie_TheFrenchie and @Weston.  She also shared her travel tips for flying in style with pups and her favorite pet friendly hotels and services.  As a globe-trotting Frenchie owner myself, I took notes and logged a number of hours on WheresTheFrenchie.com to help plan my upcoming adventures!
