I call him 'Poupounette' too - which translates as 'lovely doggie' - and 'mon petit chou' - meaning 'my little darling' - and after that he started trusting me more and more.Lizzie Smith, a canine carer at Dogs Trust, says the staff tries to mimic Marie-Hélène's accent, but to varying degrees of success. Smith says:
She does have a lovely French accent, and it's astonishing to see the way Archie will only react when he hears it.Unfortunately, due to Marie-Hélène's work and other commitments, she can't adopt Archie. Archie is available at the adoption center, and he would love a family who can speak French!
