Barjols Betty in Seattle
Betty is a 2-year-old Brindle French Bulldog. She’s never late for a meal; adores people, even strangers; and loves car rides in her basket. Her best animal friend is a horse named Leilani. Betty snores incredibly loudly. Her favorite treat is wild salmon. When she bathes, she enjoys listening to her owner singing “Single Ladies.”
The meaning behind the brushstrokes:
This kanji means “beauty.” It can also mean “pretty,” “magnificent,” “lovely” and “charming.”
This is the kanji for “strong,” “robust” or “powerful.” It implies a sturdiness.
Put these two kanji together, and the name connotes not just beauty but strength and implies a wish for a noble, exalted life.
