Although French Bulldogs as a breed were recognized by certain clubs as early as the 1850’s, 1913 marked the first issue of “The French Bulldog: A Monthly Magazine Devoted to French Bulldogs“ (seen below).
While there are a number of modern publications dedicated to French Bulldogs (see Information Resources [pdf] from the French Bulldog Club of America) I was unable to track down a modern iteration of this monthly magazine. However, the Shakespeare quotation included on the cover rings true for Frenchies today:[quote style=”1″]Sir, he’s a good dog, and a fair dog. Can more be said?[/quote]
