Arrival Story:
Ida's Gotcha day is February 5th, 2005. My mother lost her last Bulldog, Phyllis Betty in September and for the first time in over 50 years was dogless....her house had an eerie emptiness and longed for a new friend. We tried to persuade her to another breed and to fill the void. She was stubborn and said , "No more dogs! ". We (her children) all knew that wasn't going to be the case for long. As time went on she did admit that she wanted a Bulldog and a Bulldog only. As fate would have it just a day later I was reading the classified ads and lo and behold there was an ad for a 7 1/2 month old female bulldog. The rest is history...What an absolute love and it is so nice to enter my mother's house and be greeted with such joy!!!

Bio:
She went to the vet today (2-7-05) for a well check as we just got her on the 5th. The previous owner told us she weighed approximately 30 pounds. Well when we layed eyes upon her we knew she weighed much more. At the Vet we were guessing her weight...I was the closest with 48 pounds as my guess...well the chub weighed in at 62 pounds.. We could not believe it. We even questioned the Vet as to the validity of the scale!!!!

Well about one month ago I had to have my tail amputated....YIKES!!!! I was born with a very tight screw tail which is very common with Bulldogs. It was causing me problems when I would poop so Mom took me to the vet man and he told her it had to go. Mom told me that I was amazing as it never phased me at all and had virtually no pain at all. She did have a shock when she picked me up and they told her I now weight 73 pounds !!!!! Mom says she can't understand it as I really don't eat that much. I guess it's in my genes.

Mom also had a friend come over and pawsonally train me...well he really wasn't a friend but we became fast friends. He told Mom that I was a very smart lovable girl but Mom already knew that. It's just that I get sooooo excited when people come to see me that I must jump on them so I can kiss them. But Mom says I am too big to do that and that I had to learn not to . She also wanted me to walk on a leash better so she and I could get some exercise.

I am costing Mom a lot of money but she knew that before she got me...she always said that when you buy a bulldog it's only a "down payment" but I know I am worth it and so does Mom.... I am very very loved!!
