became a show kennel for purebred
French Bulldogs in Oklahoma
in the mid-1990's.
I, Karen Fore (now Monroe) watched a little impish
creature running in a backyard coursing in circle 8's and
ending her invitation to play by what I later learned is a Frenchie-unique
playbow. This brief encounter in 1992 with what was a
rare breed in our area led to a personal L'Affair
du Coeur with French bulldogs. By 1994, I
had become a hobbyist learning to train and show French bulldogs .
My first litter was born in November 1994. Ch Here Tis'
Up 'n Adam's Match won a 5 pt. major at 6 months 1 week of age. I
was "hooked" by the excitement of showing and caring for Frenchie
puppies, attending AKC dogshows, researching the breed's beginning,
perusing pedigrees, and the challenge of giving loving and
special care which a French bulldog requires to thrive.
evovled with a 20-year history of producing healthy, high quality
French Bulldogs that successfully compete in the
American Kennel Club conformation competitions, obedience,
and/or rallies. FANCIBULS are represented by
champions in many other countries of the world. Since not all
are destined for show business in the Sport of Dogs, I often
have puppies for sale to others as pet/companions. Watch the

introduction to the French bulldog breed was the impetus that
led to becoming a fancier. It is an unending challenge to
develop a healthy bloodline that meets the AKC standard for
conformation and temperament while preserving soudness in body and
spirit. Prior to 1992, I had owned cocker spaniels as a
housepet, the rare breed of Anatolian shepherds, a Komondor
for guarding property, and an English bulldog, but once a Frenchie
owner, I found I did not enjoy other breeds.
"Back in the
day", this breed was rare. I was so smitten with the
uniqueness of their behavior, loving devotion as a household pet,
and ease of grooming that I developed the desire to make
it possible for others to experience their own joyful
connection with this intelligent, humorous,
"comfortable", and devoted canine companion lapdog often dubbed "Frenchies".
The breed is now No. 6 of most popular purebred dogs registered with
The American Kennel Club. Although we have
several French Bulldog puppies for sale each year and an occasional
"retiree" from our breeding program, I will be the first to
admit that a French bulldog is NOT the breed for every fancier of
purebred dogs nor ideal pet for every home.
If deciding whether a French Bulldog is the right pet for your
family, take time to read the
the result of careful, selective matings after
researching temperament,, health and conformation of potential
sire and dam.

Besides providing others
with the joy of owning a FANCIBUL FRENCH
added one other facet to my original goal: Just
finishing 22 years of owning, handling and breeding, I
now derive gratification from helping the next
generation of fanciers enjoy the sport of dogs as they develop
their own breeding programs. I hope to leave a
legacy to this breed that has given so much to my life
over the years. It's gratifying to learn of the
daily life as
enjoying life with others around the world. I sense that
I am a part of their joy of living.
