Hi all my friends: I'm back! Switch, my dog, today he becomes a doctor, for Dr. Switch friends. Yeah, Dr. Switch and his canine wisdom pills!
I was a little absent because my human mother decided to let me follow a prestigious course of studies, she thought of sending me to America, then to England and then to France, but in the end she decided that, since she can't stay without me, an online course would have been enough: after all I'm very good at crushing the computer keys!
So now they gave me the title of Dr. Switch: I know a bit of everything, from psychology to nutrition, from behavior to posture, from fashion to anatomy, I am an all-rounder!
I also learned English: my dog is the beast! Hem ... Maybe I did something wrong? All these vowels confuse me ... ... My dog is intelligent (well this is Uncle Wally). My dog is a doctor, it's me !!! My dog is bautiful!! Mumble ... Something is missing, maybe still a vowel, I eat them!
In short, to make it short, from today I will discuss with you, in my SwitchBlog, various topics and topics.
But I can't get tired so much, I'm a bully, so I will be helped by authoritative and referenced opinions with which my Uncle Wally will come into contact, humans who will work on the cause of Dr. Switch. My dog is intelligent!
Follow us we will be online with many interesting themes for us French bulldogs and for all the other 4-legged friends who want to read our news, at the next dognews!
Today I'm talking about an essential product for our walks, a "must have": the dog carrier for our neighbors.
There are many on the market, but a careful choice is necessary: it will also be a useful accessory, but why renounce aesthetics? After all, it's like our walking bag!
Most bon ton cases are made of rigid plastic and I will not tell you the noise they produce when they bang here and there when our owner takes us for a walk!
On the market of luxury accessories for dogs, the most popular and widespread shoe cases, aim at the recognizable and relevant image of the bone and the colors and patterns are so many! Some companies have chosen to make some rubber, perhaps just to meet us in the protection of our hearing.
Speaking of shapes, I do not understand that some of these accessories recall objects or animals very distant from us: the flower, who knows it if not because I pee on it; I eat the fish every day even if it does not make me crazy, but we are not friends ...., or the flask ... do you think it remotely resembles a Saint Bernard dog?
Another important factor is: who brings the accessory? The dog or the master?
I think it must harmonize with both and not be an obstacle.
I hate to bind me objects of dubious taste or see them dangle in front of my face! They are hypnotic !!! And then that ugly those dogs all haughty that go around with the green bag tied to the leash: Uncle Wally, I would never like this as my partner!
So, following my advice as a true dandy dog, my owner tried to combine aesthetics and functionality, just thinking of the needs mentioned above.
Use soft bags in vinyl or neoprene, which have "very lovely" shapes and colors. Not only the classic bone, but also a heart, a symbol of the bond that unites us, a small handbag, because he knows I'm sensitive to fashion, and a nose that looks like mine! But what I love the most is the bone incorporated on a leash: the result is a minimal product! He stands in his place, he is discreet and silent, he does his job without making me look ridiculous.
And then every now and then Laura has the brilliant idea, as we are two, Uncle Wally and me, to put the little bags directly attached to her bag, which we like a lot because it makes it too different from other mothers, and we always want distinguish ourselves! I said mine. What do you think? Do you share your walks with a cup cake or a matryoshka? Uncle and I NO! We want to be super fashion urban and dandy dog from the tip of the ears to the cork that we have to queue.
Dear friends, I want to tell you something that we and my uncle witnessed yesterday.
Like every morning the cuddles in the Latvian of our human mother, Laura, while we wake up in the company of my uncle Wally, are the most pleasant thing that can happen ......... especially when the human Pier is already at work and we can kiss all…. but then comes the duty: the hard work !!
"Switch! Wally !! Let's go! "Laura's voice calls us to the first walk in the garden of the house, what uncle and I ruin and that the human tries to regrow with so much effort ...... ..
And then comes the beloved breakfast based on human biscuits, what goodness! Before starting a hard day they are fantastic, sure if I could avoid sharing them with Wally!
Then you get dressed and viaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Super cool leash attached to the collar for luxury dogs and we are ready for the usual walk.
The path is always the same, but I have to say that Laura is very creative because she makes directional changes based on the shoes she wears for the occasions and business meetings of the day. Because yes, she works hard and I, willingly or not, must follow her. I walk slowly to make her a pleasure so that she does not fall from the heels that she stubbornly puts on, not like that uncle of my uncle who pulls like a Husky ...... .. to avoid that he chokes them put the harness in vinyl leather from the custom design for bullies that Laura has designed especially for him, but it's like a mule ......... sure not everyone has my class of dandy dog!
I appreciate the first stretch of road, always the same with my favorite corners: the large planter between the beauty salon and the delicatessen, meeting of heavenly perfumes with a bold contrast, and the car wheel of our neighbor, always parked in a double row. And I leave my signature ... "Tiè ... remember me!" We arrive with a smile canine to refresh ourselves in a downtown cafe, sitting near a lovely English table in wrought iron, naturally iced and naturally in the dehor because it will be that my muzzled face does not reveal an affable character, but the dogs, as far as the managers tell it, they are never welcome. It will be the hair, it will be the embarrassment that we French bulldogs create when we sgasiamo ......
And here is the second breakfast of the day, a biscuit stretched under the table ....... Dog life is hard! And while I think, this my uncle complains about the usual life, always the same things ...... as always today we will have to go to the office, sit on the cushions designed for us and that we must use, try some new fashion leash, talk to some customer and ...... what a bore ....... How boring………
Suddenly, however, here is the twist!
With my refined flair, which is the envy of the best sommelier in Paris, while the uncle is a post-cookie biscuit, I feel the approach of a beautiful female model: a beautiful petite Chihuahua, a little 'charming with a harness for small dogs with rhinestones, pretty.
He gets closer and closer and I can not assume the standing position as suggested by the bon ton that I am teaching in that "very boring" training school, in the remote hope that I become a gentle dog. But there is a good smell of croquettes in the air. I like it! It's called Brioche and is my first woman ...... ..
Our owners say hello: it's the first date of the day apparently!
A few moments of apparent calm, a few sniffs here and there and here is that Brioche enraged towards the bike path, squawking like a hen suffering from a personality disorder. I realize only then that his mistress has accompanied her with an extensible leash and that she forgot to put the block. But then ... nobody told her that in the city it is not recommended for safety reasons to use the extensible?
Here ... the scene shakes me, even the adored folds that I have on the whole body are smoothed out, while my uncle still has to understand what happened ... ..
It all happens in a few seconds.
Brioche and her human companion, a carambola: she who starts with momentum, slips like a sewing machine needle between the frame of the bicycle and the handlebars, with a skill and a dexterity that can only be seen at the circus Orfei, the unfortunate that shoulder and ends wrapped up with dog and bicycle, becoming a whole ... and ready for a contemporary art gallery!
Eh nothing ... the meeting of work and love has been solved in a few minutes, with a tumble and a great scare! Stuff to make us stay breakfast on the stomach .........
And you four-way friends what do you think of this increasingly topical topic in our specialized magazines? Better fixed leash or extendable leash? Or free? I vote free !!!
Moral of the day: never prefer practicality to safety and above all: it's funny to be a dog if you choose Switchdog products! Use the Leash by Switchdog and choose all the versions available on our online shop.
This morning there is a good smell of fresh grass in the air. Spring is approaching and the flowers that are starting to bloom are declaring it to the world with their amazing colors and their intoxicating perfumes ...... excellent for pissing here and there!
Uncle Wally tries to teach me where it is best to pee and where if I do my mother screams me: nooooooo now Dad is angry at her ......... .., but I do as I want: I'm the boss and then I'm small who scolds me!
But when I go to the city it's the best time for me to do my solid needs, so at least my humans do not have to collect anything in the garden and my friend Ambrogio, the robotic whirlwind that always follows me and disturbs me in my raids to the lawn, do not dirty the wheels.
Of course in the city there are other problems always related to the collection of my waste and those of Uncle Wally: now it is a must that every owner has with him the necessaire to collect our needs and then my mother, to be always at ' last fashion does not make us miss anything.
Think and rethink, talk and talk with Uncle Wally and what's going on with you ?: he creates special dog bags for us. We dogs that we do not like the sound of plastic slamming on a leash, which we drop the classic plastic so many times and break the rings, but we want new luxury accessories for dogs designed for us and studied on purpose and with love.
And what is invented? The first heart-shaped dog carrier in the shape of a heart: my mother loves us and so what could you invent, if not a heart?
This heart, Uncle Wally and I often give it to our friends who come to visit us in our studio, as a sign of our affection and of the love that binds every quadruped to his inseparable biped .......Love does not need many words, heart is the highest expression of love that every person who chooses to share their life with a dog must have, also represents an important choice in the use of the materials they have chosen at Switchdog, all strictly of non-animal origin, in full respect of us dogs!
And you friend who read this article what do you think? Do you like our inspiring principle? Share the love! Share Switchdog !!!
And finally spring has exploded, a little late perhaps, but promises a very respectable summer!
Despite the air conditioning and the fan focused on my nose, today I prefer not to move a leg and stand on the stomach spread on the carpet.
Wally, as usual in a presidential position, looks at me gasping from the top of the couch.
And then suddenly they ring at the door and Wally jumps off the couch with an athletic doe that does not fit his usual laziness.
And who will ever be?
Moving calmly, I move towards the entrance from which there are already lines of "crowing" wild. It must certainly be someone important!
I approach the door and there is a snout as my door crosses the door and breaks into the room.
And who would that be? How come I have not been warned? Why was not it announced?
Wally, however, "is no longer in the folds", never seen so happy!
We move into the garden and it's as if I did not exist, nobody took care of the official presentations.
But in the shade of the old willow in the garden you think better !!! It 's Caesar, they tell me, brother of Zelda, the sister Bonazza of Uncle Wally ... I did not understand much about kinship, but with this heat I make myself enough explanations!
Today in the garden has also appeared a small pool that maybe Laura has mounted for the arrival of guests and ....... SPLASH ... we did not have to say anything that Cesare has already opened the dances with a triple dip carpiato Olympic! What a style! Which class!!! We see that it comes from the capital!
Yes, because Cesare the bulldog is from Rome, even if for a while he lives in the elegant Tuscan countryside, a true "gentledog". We will certainly become excellent friends!
His decisive character did not let him hesitate before cooling down and immediately jumped into the water with enthusiasm! Fortunately, she wears the Switchdog Bijou collar which, being made of vinyl leather, does not fear water.
Its owner has chosen it on purpose, a little 'because it is attached to our brand, a little' because it is sensitive to the needs of Caesar.
Unfortunately, the heat is not really a friend of us bullies, we must be careful not to risk taking the heat stroke and refresh as much as possible.
Meanwhile, Wally observes the synchronized water movements comfortably lying on a neoprene dog pillow The Sleepy Dog, fabric used for diving suits, born to stay in the water.
I am undecided ... I dive or I do not dive?
Luckily I have prepared for the arrival of summer and my "trial collar" I have already done! I chose a collar in 100% made in Italy vinyl leather! I love the French bulldog collars that made Switchdog, craft collars also for small dogs like me.I recommend biped friends: think of our health on these hot days and make sure to guarantee the thermal comfort we need! It is easy for our body to overheat and suffer a lot. Choose quality products made from the most suitable materials for this.
We are in the season of ceremonies: weddings, baptisms, communions, ... divorces with toast! Every occasion is good to celebrate and I am so nice that I always receive a welcome invitation.
This was the turn of the wedding of the year, long-awaited because the bride is already at odds of 2 and the groom at 3 ... that is the right time ???
Wally and I were there with our owners and I must say that it was a day above expectations: a beautiful location and a more fragrant bouquet buffet!
The guests were almost all funny, even if extravagant. They wore garish and colorful dresses for the occasion: the most sober had a parrot embroidered across the back.
I saw things that ONLY you humans can imagine!
In that rainbow of bodies, my mantle bringè stood out decisively. I did well to introduce myself in my total nudity, beautiful and impossible as a mother made me, with my beautiful harness for dogs with studs in pink gold finish like the cuff in vinyl leather that my mistress Laura wore.
Also because I'm not a formal type and on some occasions I'm in trouble about what to choose ... I still felt very elegant and comfortable.
Nothing to do with Wally that took us to prepare more time for the bride. She was very undecided because the Switchdog has just produced some new dog collars that can be fitted for more or less important occasions. There are stars, hearts and bows in various colors that can be inserted and interchanged on the Easy collar without studs. Very fashion !!!
And in a couple of hours even Wally managed to get ready and showed up with a beautiful papillon in vinyl-leather on black collar: impeccable! During the ceremony was all the time with the nose up, a little 'strutting I have to say, but could afford it because it has class to sell!
Perhaps, however, he sinned of vanity when he began to sculpt insistently in front of the photographer. He wanted to be immortalized with that perfect look and in his best pose.
Yes, but now Wally, do not overdo it !!! This is an official photo!
It seems that he does not want to hear reasons. I told him so many times that I can not bark anymore.
I give up and I head to the "cake point" and there I will wait for you to drop in the evening to wear my collar for dogs also accessorized with Add & Dog ... I choose the silver heart! Who knows if he can make shade on that embroidered bird.
Too many times I met four-legged friends with a smile marked by difficult past.
Too many times I heard barking silently.
Too many times I have seen signs and scars in the depth of a look.
We are many and often infiocchettati as gift packages, like a toy that quickly becomes obsolete and is put aside.
Every day I think about how I and Wally have been lucky, desired and welcomed into a loving family that treats us like real children.
For many it lasts too little for the vanity of feeling loved a little longer.
And that's what happened to Vans, the mum's friend's dog, Barbara the Hair Stylist, who was adopted with her little brother by a family who both sent them back to the sender after a few weeks.
Maybe they were already tired of him, his long hair to handle or maybe because when he was taken was a nice puppy and it was not thought that the dogs are peeing around and be followed, they are not stuffed animals!
In the drama of abandonment, luck has wanted Barbara to meet him and take him with her: it was love at first sight! The ruffled hair, the dull look of a broken heart and a gentle gesture with the paw "I need you and I choose Said done ... makeup and wigs like only the mother's friend can do! Vans was very lucky to choose who takes care of him ... soul and body!
Wally and me always enjoy it when they come to visit us, even if they have recently shown their snobby side. Maybe because he spends the whole day between curlers and glossy magazines, but sometimes he observes us with an air of superiority and I can not help but check to have all the folds of my cloak bring it in order. I always feel I must be impeccable in his presence!
Wally instead, who is always very wise, looks at him amused. Especially when Vans prepares for official photos by taking a spontaneous pose, like a VIP on the red carpet.
Despite all we endure and that funny and imperfect smile is true, of a dog that has rediscovered happiness.
Sometimes abandonment creates deeper and more invisible wounds of physical abuse and causes inability to react.
Vans instead reacted strongly and received great support. And not only! His mistress has also honored him with a complete set of Switchdog products: leash, collar, harness and bag carrier which, in my opinion, are those that make it pretty nice and almost likeable.
This morning there is a lot of movement at home, they all seem very busy and, unaware of what is happening, I have a strategic position to observe.Here we go again: start going around the house that strange thing with the wheels on which the other time I pee and I have been scolded ......... Uncle Wally but what is this thing that looks like a spaceship, up whose mother sits and jumps on top: strange these humans!
Here: we entered holiday preparation mode!
Mom Laura and dad Pier are super agitated and busy in a thousand preparations, Wally is the only one who does not seem stressed, indeed, lying on his pillow for dogs, has more resigned air of those who saw this scene more and more times.I do not! I want to understand if they will take us with them and what will be the destination of the trip. For a moment the bedroom is empty. Maybe Laura and Pier are deciding together what to bring, so I certainly have a lot of time to take a closer look at the luggage.I move into the room and stuff myself into a suitcase that is still open.
I want to see if there's anything about me and Wally. At first glance I see nothing that can satisfy my curiosity.
I only see well-folded clothes that otherwise would not fit in the suitcase given the number.
I insert my curious nose with much difficulty under the first layer of laundry. These are the occasions when I would like to be a wolf, able to turn it all over with a nose acrobatics.
Nothing ... I do not see anything that concerns me! Not a game, not a croquette, nothing! I have to go deeper and make room between a sneaker and a bikini. I almost got to the bottom of the suitcase, when I hear my name "Switch !!!!" ... no thud, however, nobody fainted.
I slug out of the baggage and only then I realize that I made a mess.
The well-folded and tidy clothes are now a shapeless mountain of fabric ... and among these there is also the t-shirt that Laura made thinking of us with the writing DOG with a beautiful heart in applied leatherette, a sign of her love for me and uncle! Too late to hide, there is no more time: he saw me!
But being on vacation Laura does not get angry, she laughs with Uncle Wally and tries the impossible task of closing the suitcase. Pier helps her paying attention not to forget even a very precious stocking: it's true love!
So what do we travel with? Laura seems to understand my look at the question mark and prepares our travel bag, where there is a complete leash and collar or harness for luxury dogs such as me and uncle, a different one for each day of our holiday. A harness to take us to the sea, a fashion gold collar for the evening to take us to dinner, a red leash for the day and a black one for the evening. We have more things for me and uncle than for mom and dad! So I calm down, even if a little 'I stress always having to do the dog model for the Switchdog ... of course I'm cool!
Uncle Wally also gets up, stretches, and proceeds to the front door.
He's already wearing his harness and in a moment I'm also equipped with a collar and leash and get in the car.
We start !!!
I do not want to know where we go, I like surprises: the important thing is that we are all together. Who knows how many friends we will know and how many languages will we learn to speak? I'm sure they take us abroad because they made us passports! Mom was thinking of writing to me about her because I'm small, but they did it to me too.
So happy holidays to all !!
And if you want to post your images on our social networks on vacation with your family, we will travel the world with you! And you are connected as I tell you about our journey: Switchdog on travel!
Happy holidays to all! See you in September!
Guys, we met Uncle Wally and I was a rocking female!
His name is Babu and he wears the collars and leashes of our mother like a goddess!
Of course she is much older than us, has a noble bearing and is also noble by birth, and 'a real Dog Model and is also blonde: a crash!
And his mum Elena, even more, form a special couple!
Together they direct the fashion atelier of which Elena is the designer of all the garments, the roaring motor of the Reggiani Boutique! And we were there to visit it: it is a very elegant place where we were a bit 'on the tips of the legs, we did not know how to sit, our mother had never brought us before in such a chic place.
We did a very professional shoot and we fell in love with Babu while he was photographing posing at the invitation of his mother Elena to sit down.
Result: for watching for an hour you're beautiful legs (even his human were not joking!), The mother decided that because it takes us educated as Babu who goes to school, we will go to school ....... Do you have any idea what you are waiting for? He has already prepared special leashes and sports bibs to keep up with the times .........
We will tell you soon our first lessons, while thanks Elena Reggiani and Babu for allowing us to meet you.

From Switch's diary, Switchdog's dog: Hello to all the friends! I'm so tired !, yesterday finally my mom and my dad decided to bring my uncle Wally and the little dwarf (I'd be !!!) home after 20 days that make us turn half of Europe ......
They introduced us to Switzerland, Germany and Holland: all by car! That's why they made us make strange bites (that dolooooooreeeee if I still think about it !!) to get us our personal passport, we are international dogs !!!
