Most perfect puppy

I am blessed. I have the world's most perfect puppy. He's adorable, sweet, curious, fearless, sleeps through the night, eats well, has us well-housebroken, and is simply wonderful.
Except for the noise. Teddy is my second French Bulldog. Dax is 6 years old now. She barks occasionally - at the other dogs when she wants to play. At the neighbors when they come up to the fence. That's it. Quiet dog. Good dog.
Teddy has a voice and likes the way it sounds. He barks for attention. He barks for treats. He barks to play. And he screams in his crate.
I talked to Carol, his breeder, yesterday and was joking about my vocal little boy. She said "A bit of a diva, eh? (she's Canadian). Oh yeah.

I can relate. My first frenchie, zoe, is pretty quiet. My second.... squawks like a parrot. Tobee is deaf, so I can't say he likes the way he sounds, but he sure seems to enjoy barking, a lot. He's just a year old now, and doesn't scream in his crate anymore, but I remember those first several weeks. Not a lot of sleep during those early days. Good Luck!
