The New Look

Our little Uma is growing up....she's experiencing her first big girl heat cycle.  Oh joy for us!  Her #1 favorite thing is to come on my bed with me while I enjoy my first morning's coffee.  I spread out an extra soft blanket for her and she plops herself down on it.  She is such an interesting combination of her Daddy Otto and Momma Maisy.  A few are...she whines like her daddy and suckles on her blankie like her momma.

She was not a happy girl yesterday when she was forbidden from the bed, but my friend Jen saved the day!!!  She made Uma the cutest pair of panties!  Check out her Blue Line Design site...she is so creative!!

This morning we donned the panties and continued our morning ritual, much to Uma's delight!

I tried to get a few photos last night, but Uma only wanted to rub my legs to try and get the panties off.  This morning was better and she'll be used to them in no time.

Here's our big girl Uma in her big girl panties!  (oh and a new cool collar from Jen too, although I don't have a picture of that yet).

This and That

First, I must say...."Ohhhh, Mondays are so hard!"  After a long weekend at the flyball tournaments, I would love a day to play catch up at home.  No such luck.  Darn!

But a few brags to share.  :0)

Henry ran another PB this weekend in flyball.  A 4.21!!!!!!   AND, I walked (with two shoes and no crutches or boot) all weekend!  Nice!!!

Marby's A Bit of Heaven "Gracie" passed her CGC and TDI!!!  (Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog International).  Good job Gracie and Kris!  Thanks for your commitment to her....and now Apple!   :0)  I couldn't be happier that Apple has gone to live with her sister Gracie.  That's going to be one hopping bulldog household. lol!!  A shout out to Apple too for receiving her paperwork clearance for her CHIC/OFA patellas and cardiac. Official certification number pending receipt in the mail.

Here's a snapshop of the sisters at play!

And, can't forget about big boy Otto. Such a goofball! It's not a brag but who can resist a bully in a three baskets!

A congrats to Randy's win with Bailey at the Minneapolis Kennel Club show this weekend and BIG "woo hoo" to Nancy and Bogart on their showring debut!  ...keep 'em coming!!

And to my friend Jen on her election to the St. Paul Minneapolis Bulldog Club's board election.  She's going to be a wonderful voice for the bulldog breed.  Way to go Jen!

It was a full weekend of four paw fun!!!

We are all so excited!!  Uma will be here for awhile!  We will enjoy every minute!

Here she is at 8 1/2 months, enjoying the afternoon sunshine and a romp in the yard.  I did too!

Let the adventures of Uma begin...

Friday Fun Night

This is an event I'll be attending as a representative for our St. Paul Minneapolis Bulldog Club and sounds like it's sure to be a good time for any bulldog lover (or beer lover for that matter.)  I happen to fall into both categories so I am looking forward to it!!  See you there?!

Simple Delights

Hi all,

Ya know, these humans sometimes they don't know a good thing when they see it. They scurry around picking up all sorts of cool things.  For example, dog toys...why not leave them on the couch all the time?  Empty card board boxes...hey, a boy likes a good soggy chew sometimes?  And the real kicker...why put away my favorite chewed laundry basket!

I'm telling ya, they ruin the best fun.  It's been weeks now since they took away my favorite laundry basket.  So I've had to resort to climbing into basket of clean clothes. WTH, then those same humans kick me out of those.

FINALLY, someone figures it out.  I LOVE MY BASKETS!!!  So yesterday my momma emptied a basket of folded clean clothes and saw me eyeing it longingly.  And, ya know what she did?  She put it on the floor in my favorite spot...took out a wonderful comfy pillow placed it inside and said, "It's all yours."

I iz one happy bulldog!!

Geez, let a boy sleep will ya!

Four paw up!  ~Otto
