Last Sunday, March 9th, I had a chance to meet Manny The Frenchie. Manny is the world’s most followed Frenchie dog. Manny and his parents, Amber and Jon, will be speaking at the upcoming BlogPaws14 conference.
Manny is from Chicago and I had an opportunity to tag along with him and his parents at a recent Bulls game held at the United Center. Manny is a huge Bulls fans. Manny had his own table/chair at the concourse before the game, where fans had an opportunity of taking a photo with him.
Manny wore a Bulls jersey, posed and smiled with both his fans and the Bulls fans. Manny was a very well mannered dog. He was very patient and sat on the high chair for an hour.
Manny surely provided the Bulls lots of Frenchie Luck as the Bulls won against the Miami Heat.
Manny’s stardom started on Instagram. He is known as an Instagram Star.
Manny has about 450,000+ instagram followers.
How did it get started?
Jon and Amber got Manny as a puppy, at a discounted price of $900, as the breeder was very motivated to get rid of him. Manny is such an extraordinary adorable puppy that Jon and Amber’s friends kept requesting photos. The large number of friend’s request made them open an Instagram account. Manny became a hit and had a spot on Instagram’s popular page. If you are on Instagram, make sure to follow Manny at @manny_the_frenchie
Manny does lots of meet and greet appearances and donates money to animal charities.
You can also connect with Manny via The Manny the Frenchie on Facebook Page and @FrenchieManny on Twitter.
Sugar was not able to come along and meet Manny but Golden Excited to meet him at BlogPaws14. We are also looking forward to Manny’s hour session about sharing his success on Instagram.
