How many of us can say that we have made the front cover of the Daily Herald in DuPage County? Not many of us unless we are a politician, have done something super for human rights or are a social activist or perhaps won some great award. There is always the chance to get recognition for doing something sinister, but who wants that? Not many of us can get that kind of media attention simply by sleeping in a sink for Heaven’s sake!
There is one little fellow that did just that yesterday. His name is Manny the Frenchie and he is a two-year-old French Bulldog. Not only is this little rascal cute, he is popular and is a businessman to boot. In fact, this canine has so much going for him that he has seven full and part-time people in his employ. Wouldn’t we humans like that type of a gig? Many of us still cannot get a good-paying job these days.
Writers know that they must learn the fundamentals of social media just to try to make a buck presently. Manny has that all in the bad, however. Thanks to Manny’s human parents, Jon Huang and Amber Chavez, this little dog is going viral.
Where the breeder discounted the French Bulldog for being the runt that no one seemed to want, the young couple saw something special in the little fellow. Again and again their predictions came true as they began first sharing Manny’s photos with family and friends and then online where other social media users caught on to his cuteness and were quite expectant of new photos.
From that point on, the dog was nothing less than popular! He has his own appearance schedule where he appears on television; he also has T-shirts designed in his honor that are selling like hotcakes and then there are his modeling gigs. Everyone seems to want a piece of this supposed ‘throw-away’ doggie.
John and Amber have both quit their careers in order to manage their pet’s career. Basically they stated that if they did not see it for themselves, they would have a hard time believing that a dog can produce such big business. But it is true and things do not look as if they will be slowing down any time in the near future.
If only a regular, everyday person’s cuteness could take them this far in life. Perhaps it can. Manny the Frenchie never suspected it could happen, but has been proof positive that anything is possible!
