Flat Brutus: Truly a World Tour

Yep, it's time for another Flat Brutus update!  First I have some exciting news:  Flat Brutus now has his own line of merchandise, thanks to CafePress!  There's all sorts of fun things you can buy at the Flat Brutus Merchandise shop: from t-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets, to travel mugs, magnets, and stationery, hosts can now have something to commemorate their visit from Flat Brutus.  All profit generated from the store goes directly to French Bulldog Rescue Network, so not only are you purchasing a fun item, you are supporting FBRN!  

I've posted a button on the sidebar here, finding the shop is easy.   In case the link doesn't work for you, the URL for the shop is http://www.cafepress.com/flatbrutus.  The logo shown above is on all the merchandise, so be sure to stop by and check it out!  Special thanks to artist Lili Chin (www.doggiedrawings.net) for allowing me to use her work for such a fun project!

Now back to the Tour itself.  Flat Brutus has really been quite the jet-setter recently, visiting several countries with another of his international hosts, Sarah-Jane.  She lives in the Orscholz, Germany (near the border of France and Luxembourg) with her two Frenchies Norman and Gertie.  Here they are getting introduced to Flat Brutus.

Sarah-Jane took Flat Brutus on a whirlwind tour of Western Europe, including Belgium, Luxombourg, and France:

That's countries number 3, 4, and 5 on the World Tour itinerary if you're counting.  Amongst his many adventures with Sarah-Jane, Flat Brutus went to Feiburg (southern Germany) participated in a marathon!

Here he is keeping pace with the pack, thanks to her son Warwick (his dad Wills was running in the race too):

Here's a fun photo she took of Flat Brutus - who is Brutus' mini-me after all -  at a mini-Eiffel tower while in France.  Unfortunately the photo is miniature too, but trust me...  FB is in there (once again, Warwick assisting)! 

Flat Brutus also went to England with Sarah-Jane (country #6!!), but her camera decided to go haywire.  Luckily he'll be back in England late in the tour, so will hopefully have another chance for a photo of with the Queen :)

Flat Brutus is should be arriving in Singapore soon, being hosted by the pack that writes The Musketeers blog.  Hope he has traveled safely and to hear from him soon!  Stay tuned for updates!

Brutus' FLATulant self is certainly a world traveler. I'm thinkin' he should do a thingy on the Travel Chanel. He could earn about 87 zillion green papers for your charity.

I'm so very much glad FB gots to visit France, the land of his ancestors. Was he able to look any of them up? And did he get to "oui" on anything while he was there? Haha! Sometimes I'm very funny.
