Finally!!! A picture of our madhouse! You know what I think that pack is missing...a small flyball wanna-be height dog!! Yup....I'm all over that! (shhh, Bill doesn't know it or admit that he knows it yet.) LOL
And, of course, Henry...who is "technically" my daughter's. HAHA...glad I get to have the fun with him. Love him!
A four paw Christmas gift! ...hang on, will get to that!
I have to say I love to be a bully matchmaker!!! I feel blessed to have been part of some wonderful bulldog matchmaking. :0) Now the puppies, they are easy...who can resist a pudgy wrinkly bully baby. I have had the fortune to have placed puppies in some wonderful homes. A huge thank you to my families for sharing their homes with a Marby bulldog puppy. Hugs to you all!
What's most rewarding is finding homes for the older bulldogs that need their forever homes. Maybe they aren't the most perfect bulldog by show ring standards, have special needs, or circumstances have just caused a change in life. A few that come to mind...Bee, Holly, Griffin, Doc. Hmmm, maybe I have a rescue heart (never really thought of it that.)
So here I share, another successful matchmaking! A most wonderful four paw Christmas gift. Here you go peeps, meet Bella!
Isn't she beautiful! Bella had an owner that cared about her a lot but he knew she deserved a home where she could receive the pampered life and care that every bully dreams of!! So the search began...
A month or two ago I began some email exchanges with a wonderful lady, SyAnn. I could tell SyAnn was going to be a wonderful bulldog momma. She had really researched the breed and was very interested in opening her home and heart to an older bulldog. SyAnn and I quickly became email penpals (farmville neighbors too..haha!) and after exploring some adoption opportunities, the perfect match came along with Bella. Oh lucky girl Bella!!!!! I'm not sure who received the Christmas gift, Bella or SyAnn, but Santa delivered a few days early and now Bella is enjoying life with her new family and four paw sister Mandy.
Happy beginnings Miss Bella! Enjoy your new home!! I enjoyed being Santa's matchmaking elf!!
If you know someone who would be willing to share their home with an older/young adult bulldog, please let me know. Sometimes these opportunities come along and nothing is more rewarding then connecting bullies with their forever families!!!
It's me Uma and I just have to share a photo of me and MY DADDY! Aren't we just cute together! I'm working on making my dad proud by learning to "sit" and "stay" just like him. He's pretty good at the obedience and tricks, and I'm hoping to follow in his footsteps...in the training ring and show ring! :0) We invited Momma Maisy to join us so I could have a complete family photo but Momma is not as patient as Dad and I. We'll try a new family photo later...maybe something more creative. hahaha....Momma Mary has an idea!
(OMG...case in point....I posted this a WHOLE flippin' DAY early!!! I am not good with dates! But posting anyway so I'll get two days of birthday wishes in for Jen!!!) So consider this as a post on 12-11-10, TOMORROW!!!
I will confess. Numbers are not my greatest friends. I can't remember dates, phone numbers, addresses or much of anything that involves a number. They just don't stick...ever!
But today, as I was wishing a special friend a Happy Birthday, I was quite impressed by today's date!
This sequence of numbers usually would be lost upon me...I mean, really who cares, it's just a set of numbers with no special meaning. But today is the birthday of my friend JEN. And, Jen loves her numbers!!!
So Jen, have PAW-fect birthday (tomorrow)! Enjoy!
"The world would be so lonely, in sunny hours or gray.
Without the gift of friendship, to help us every day."
OMG...it's me Otto! I'z so excited!!! You see yesterday, Momma Mary, showed me the cutest picture!! I thought to myself, "Dang, that bully iz almost as cute as me." I know what your thinking....NO WAY! How can you get cuter than me. See here's the secret...keep it in the family!! Hope you enjoy some double cute, wonderfully handsome pictures of some of the most adorable bullies around. Really!? You doubt...it's a fact...our momma's tell us we are the cutest all the time! Always believe your mother!! Momma Heidi and Momma Mary would never lie!
My nephew Ozzie.

And me, Uncle Otto.
I knew it....you're a believer now!! (psst, I think he takes after my genes.)
Yippee!!!! Us four paws woke up to a whole bunch of snow....inches of it!!! Momma Mary was groaning about it and Daddy Bill wasn't thrilled with all the shoveling. But me, I was so very happy!
I was like a little kid entertaining himself. I'd run and run, jump through the snow, dash through the trees...over and over again. You see, the bullies aren't allowed in my "big" yard. I don't know why, something about how they run the fence too hard. I think Momma Mary is afraid their bully bodies might pull a muscle or two or three. Not me tho, I'm made for running and jumping.
Today...part of the fun was teasing Maisy because she couldn't run through the snow like me. She did her usually trash talking but I just laughed right back.
