Cuteness alert! Chilli’s bound to get hearts thumping and tails wagging with just one longing for a play look. As a pivotal member of the Marsh family, who own and operate Dromana’s Rock & Redgum Garden Supplies, this gorgeous French bulldog spends the day entertaining clients and getting up to mischief.
Tracey explains. “The customers love her. She’s a real person dog and demands interaction whether it’s with clients or their four-legged companions. She’s my shadow and comes with me on the school run to drop off our sons Finn and Joel, and then it’s into work. We waited for 18 months to get her from a breeder near Echuca and now I can’t imagine life without her. She’s got a beautiful red coat and the cheekiest expressions. Our regulars always ask after her and we’ve had people come back with their children to meet her.”
As the pic suggests, butter wouldn’t melt in the mouth of this adorable canine. Yes, she likes to nibble shoes and run around the rock yard so fast you’ll get exhausted just watching her, but she also helps out with a day’s work. Tracey continues. “It was hilarious, really. The guys were measuring up some rock the other day for a client and she held the end of the tape measure in her mouth and put her paw up on the rock as if summing up the situation. She’s here six days a week and has become a real conversation piece.”
Whether it’s saying g’day to clients, playing hide and seek, or snoozing on her bed in the Rock & Redgum office, Chilli has spiced up everyone’s life. “French bulldogs are known for breathing conditions like snoring and grunting so we had her nostrils widened, which is pretty common. She probably needs a bit of training too, but we think she’s absolutely perfect just the way she is,” says Tracey.
