In this week’s edition of “Pet of the Week,” we’re excited to introduce Estelle, the charming Frenchton pup, who is gearing up to celebrate her sixth birthday Dec. 26. Estelle, a precious and sometimes sassy canine, is the beloved fur-child of Nolan and Tara Beasley of Luverne. The pup has an endearing personality and her parents describe her as “the sweetest little girl with a dash of diva.”

Estelle has a quirky nightly ritual where she howls in celebration when her mother arrives home from work. Every night, Estelle curls up under the covers at the foot of her parents’ bed and, as the queen of the house, acts accordingly.

Estelle is an only child and her favorite activity is going for a ride. The mere jingle of car keys sends her running to the door, ready for a royal adventure. With her head out the window she displays an air of royalty. 

Estelle has a fondness for picking up sticks but her all-time favorite pastime is being pampered and petted.
