because all French adjectives come after the nouns except when the adjective falls under BAGS. look it up online. (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

I don't do French, but it's the same thing in Spanish. Basically, the adjective is always going to come after the noun. You first describe what it is that you are describing, and then add on the adjective. The orange dog, would be "the dog orange" directly translated into Spanish and most likely French. In English, we say the adjective first, followed by the noun.
