The Strawbridge family is expanding!
In very exciting news, Dick and Angel have given their two children, Arthur and Dorthy a new little friend to play with at the chateau.
Sharing on their social media, the family detailed the adorable news with exclusive pictures of their latest addition:
"A new addition to the Strawbridge family," they wrote.
"Meet Puppy Petale!
"She's a beautiful Kerry Blue and currently settling very well into Chateau life.
"She is full of personality and knows her mind... it's a Strawbridge gal thing...
"It's nearly impossible to get a puppy to pose... but here are the best!
"Petale is featured in lots of our home movies if you have not see her in action and of course.. if you are interested!!" the couple add.
Petale is the family's first dog, and the children's first real pet to call their own.
Already, the gorgeous puppy seems to be fitting into French chateau life rather well - with plenty of space to run around and play in, not to mention the moat which we're sure will accompany plenty of fishing trips with the children as they grow up.
It seems Dick has also found an affinity with the Kerry Blue, which will no doubt be the chef's companion when sourcing fresh food from the vegetable gardens only to wait for delicious off-cuts in the kitchen.
Fans of the series and of the family instantly shared their delight on the news:
"How lovely for the children," one said. "Love watching your programmes, an amazing couple and lovely children xxxx"
"Arthur and Dody are blessed having you as parents," another person wrote. "They will be such good, kind, happy people."
You can follow more of the family's adventures through their weekly home videos, where you can now hope to see little Petale feature in many.
