Do you adore Frenchies and love meeting new people? Then the TomKings Frenchie Meetups are for you! If you are already part of the TomKings Frenchie Family Facebook group, you probably know that we’ve been organizing these events around the US for the past few months. In this article, we reveal why these meetups are so important for us, the challenges we had at the beginning, some pictures of the recent events and our plans for the future!
Becoming part of the TomKings Frenchie Family
Over the past more than ten years, hundreds of American families welcomed an adorable TomKings Frenchie into their homes. Though it’s incredibly hard to let our puppies go, we’ve found a way to make these goodbyes easier: as soon as someone adopts one of our pups we consider them our extended family and stay in contact with them ever after in our closed TomKings Frenchie Family Facebook group.
Over the years we’ve been blessed to see how our Frenchies are spoiled in their forever homes. Lucky for us, the proud parents love sharing glimpses of their Frenchies’ lives and not only we but everyone in the group gets to see how TomKings puppies spend their days, not just in the US but all over the world!
Apart from sharing cute pictures and videos of Frenchies, the group is also an amazing platform for asking help and sharing advice with others when needed. Our community is full of helpful people who feel dedicated to share the love for our Frenchies, and that love is exactly what binds us together as a big Family.
TomKings Frenchie Meetups – the first plans and challenges
Connecting in the Facebook group is certainly amazing, but we wanted to take things to the next level. Our mission was and still is to create a strong community and provide opportunities for our adopters to make new friends, share experiences, learn from each other and most of all to have fun while their Frenchies are playing together.
The idea of organizing TomKings Frenchie Meetups around the US was born back in 2019 and the first preparations started in the beginning of 2020. Everything seemed to be right on track but then came March and the covid pandemic with all our plans going down the drain.
While being in lockdown, we decided to make the best of the situation and did an online family gathering which turned out to be very successful! We were all so happy to see each other and the puppies who all started their lives on our farm.
At this point, we continued to wait and see how the covid situation plays out. For a couple of months in 2021 it seemed like we’d finally make our dream true and be able to start organizing the meetups for our TomKings parents. However, considering the constant uncertainty, we decided to postpone again for the safety of everyone.
The first successful TomKings Frenchie Meetups and plans for upcoming events
After more than two years, we are proud to say that this year we were finally able to hold the first few TomKings Frenchie Meetups at various locations around the US! Thanks to TomKings Adri and our amazing TomKings Ambassadors, many of our Frenchie parents had tons of fun in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Miami, Atlanta and the Orange County.
We received a lot of photos, videos and wonderful feedbacks after the events, which truly melted our hearts as they went exactly how we imagined them: with happy Frenchies and parents making new friends and just having a great time. Based on the success of these first few meetups, it became certain that there really is a need for our pawrents to come together as a big Frenchie Family.
Regarding the future, we are excited to reveal that there are already plans underway for the next events. If you would love to attend one of these, you are most welcome to do so whether you have a TomKings Frenchie or just planning on getting one! Join our Facebook group where we share regular updates about these events.

It was still a bit chilly in February, but that didn’t stop these eager New Yorkers and their Frenchies from coming together.
Polo Blu and Nikko couldn’t stop playing after getting to know each other.
Our amazing TomKings ambassador Erica even prepared a little surprise: everyone left with NY Yankee jerseys and treats.
Los Angeles Meetup, March 5th
Lots of happy TomKings Frenchies came together in LA thanks to our ambassadors Morgan and Camila.
The pups were all so excited to play while the parents had a chance to get to know each other and exchange their experiences.
Boston Meetup, April 9th
It looked like an April shower will disrupt the Boston Meetup, but it turned out a lovely event thanks to Laurie, Dani and David.
San Francisco Meetup, April 10th
8 happy TomKings Frenchies with their families who had an amazing time together thanks to our ambassador Nike.
“It was fun, the puppies were all so cute and you could definitely tell they were TKK pups. What a lovely Frenchie community we have!” (Nike, Pippa’s mom)
Atlanta Meetup, April 16th
The rain made Ashley and Devin reschedule the Atlanta Meetup to next weekend, but based on the big smiles the wait was well worth it!
“I loved seeing all the relative Frenchies have an instant connection and clear out all the other dogs because they were being so rambunctious and annoying!” (Ashley, Lord Nibbler’s mom)
Miami Meetup, April 24th
The first Miami Meetup unfortunately had to be canceled due to a dog virus spreading in FL, but Ozzy was finally able to meet Liza’s babies Charlie and Blue later in April.
“We had a lot of fun the pups wouldn’t stop playing. Ozzy didn’t even want to go out again after, he was exhausted. The weather was beautiful too it was perfect for the Frenchie special needs haha.” (Magdalena, Ozzy’s mom)
Orange County Meetup, May 1st
Hercules, Emmett, JoJo and Mimi had a blast at the Orange County Meetup!
“Hercules and I loved meeting and seeing all the adorable other TomKings pups! It was fun to get to exchange stories on the crazy shenanigans they get into and the funny things they do! We were also able to discuss topics like what kinds of food each pup eats, the treats they like etc… nice to have new options from other Frenchie parents if needed. Hercules and I would love to attend more of these meet ups in the near future!” (Kimmy, Hercules’ mom)
