The Bichon Frise became well known to the Italian nobility in the 1300s; in the 1500s the Bichon became a favorite of French kings and nobles, who doused him with perfume and tied ribbons into his coat. In the 1700s the French Revolution ended the royalty, but the Bichon remained.He happily joined forces with the common people and became a companion to organ grinders as well as the blind.

Since the 14
th century when it was brought to Europe from the Canary Islands, this playful powder puff has charmed countless generations with its tricks and its lively, almost human expression.
