Monica : Rachel , when you go away for work, I get bored as hell! What to do man? I just can’t deal with this separation anxiety from you.
Rachel: I know that Monica, you are a dear friend to me too, I love spending time with you as well, but one of us has to earn for our living. I cannot sit at home and expect money to magically appear in our bank accounts. Why don’t you find a new job for yourself?
Monica: Hey! No need to be snarky Rachel! I know you are working hard for the both of us, affording rent, food, toiletries and what not, but I cannot go back to living in that mechanical way again. My anxieties reach to another level. You know that I need to fulfill my dream of becoming a chef, you know that I cook spectacular food, but no one is ready to give me an opportunity whatsoever. I have tried my best, but I just can’t find anything of my liking.
Rachel : Of course, sitting in pajamas on the couch , stuffing your face with chips, oreos and peanut butter, which is gross by the way and watching dog videos is trying hard. I would love to do such hard work myself.
Monica: Alright, alright! I know I watch too many dog videos, but look how cute are these dogs! Look at them sleeping.
Rachel: I hate to agree with you but this is so cute. I want to squish these pups Monica! Which breed is this?
Monica: I know right? This is Griffon Belge. It originated from Belgium.
Rachel: Hey, I got an idea, why don’t you own a dog, wait a minute, why don’t you own this dog? It is small, cute and cuddly and When he will come to our home, you won’t even realize that I’m not there.
Monica: Nice idea, Rachel. I am so excited to get this puppy at our home, and for sure I will forget you when he comes.
Rachel: Very funny ,Monica. But do you have any information on this breed? I mean what kind of conditions does it need to grow, what kind of food it eats,etc.
Monica: Of course I do.What do you think I do when you’re away for work. Anyway, this cute canine is a part of Gruffon Bruxellois breed. They are available in black, black and tan, blue, red, beige and brown. They are small dogs which grow up to twenty three to twenty six centimetres in height and about three to six kilograms in weight. These dogs were originally used in stables to catch rats but in the 1870’s it graduated from being a rat dog to a lapdog when Queen Henrietta Maria of Belgium grew a liking for this dog. So, the royal patronage boosted international interest, and Griffs were exported to America and England.
Although these dogs are small in size , but they have huge personalities. They are stubborn , so they do not do anything against their will, and the best part is, that they love to cuddle with their favorite person, which obviously would be me.
Rachel : We will see. Now continue with the information please.
Monica: They are intelligent, playful , energetic and they adjust well to the city life. They need to be constantly praised while being trained, also, it is better to train them in an indoor cage(for crate training). These dogs are wary of strangers and tend to bark a lot, so they are excellent watchdogs too. Is it enough or should I convince you more?
Rachel: Okay, now I am convinced, we will get this cute, furry canine the first thing in the morning. Surely, Griffon Belge is the way to go buddy!
