lizard and roach hunting, sleeping on anything that looks soft and comfortable, pestering her nana and grandad, "Snackeral time!", getting attention from everyone and everything, Playing with bubbles, laser pointers, and oversized balls from Walmart
being left alone, sitting in a car stopped in traffic, being kept from going where she wants, having the light on past when she wants it off for sleep
empty 2-liter soda bottle, milk carton, floseeze rope, mama's shoes, toys that don't belong to her, daddy's ears, bad cuz, jolly ball
royal canin bulldog formula, cheese, turkey, anything being made in the kitchen, tortillas, and bananas
all 6 acres of grandparent's property and diving in the pond
sit, learning stay, kind of know heel, waiting for food, laying down when told (most of the time), running away when callled *snicker* and can bark "I want my food!" and woof hello to friends
I had the need for a puppy, and always wanted a bulldog. I had wanted a bulldog since the very first time I had seen them at a young age. I searched for at least a month on popular dog sites and through breeders I knew. My boyfriend's mother who is always kind and loving to me , was willing to loan me money to get a bully. I looked everywhere and the going rate for a good bred bully that was here in town was $1500. This was not an amount I could afford to pay back ,so I started looking through the classifieds.
There was a guy who advertised puppies for $750, which I figured was better than 15oo. He said he had a girl and a boy left. I know a breeder who is familiar with price bartering. He called and talked the guy down to $600. My boyfriend's mom agreed to loan me that amount and we went to get her that week.
I had already kinda decided on a girl puppy because the only girl dog I have lives outside at my parents house.I decided to take a look at the boy baby while I was there too just to see if I fancied a male puppy more than a female. While we were there and I first picked up the little boy who was very timid. Domino (the center of the universe from birth) did a bark and a yelp through the fence at all of us. It is as if she was saying "HEY people! I want to be held!" I picked her up and she grunted in my arms but snuggled right up against me. I knew I had found a perfect match, so we haded over the money, wrapped her up in a towel and departed with her shot records and paperwork.
To this day there are very few dogs I have become this close with. My father cannot stand dog hair in the house but he tolerates her. He treats her more like a grandchild than a dog sometimes. She brings out so much calm in him and it fills me with joy to see my dad care about a dog soo much.
Domino: I do love my grandpa and grandma very much and am always excited to see them. If any of you are interested, I am actually known as an "Altman White English Bulldog" The original breeder Mr. Ray Altman himself apparently lives up in Waycross, Georgia and breeds special bullies like me all the time. There are a ton of Altman White English bulldogs for sale in Waycross, GA! Go to google and search ("Waycross, GA and Altman White English Bulldogs") Not ALL Altman whites are white in color necessarily so sometimes we are possibly for olde english bulldogs or even American bulldogs.
Oh my goodness LOVE ME!

This dumb stupid idiot head doesn't view dogs the same way we do and momma will never understand the type of people who think that dogs are just objects to be sold and bought. We both cried knowing that at least two of those puppies died not knowing the love that could be waiting for them when they got to leave.
Grandpa won't report him, because sadly grandpa is of the mindset that other people's business is their business and he is not going to do much more than just keep the pups from dying.
There is so much more to the saga, but even now as I write this I just wann go bite him in the bootie and make him feel pain like they did.
On a brighter note! I have a new sister! I will love to play with er when I finally meet her! Momma says she looks ten times better this week after having two weeks of TLC from grandma and grandpa. Her sister is still the baby that is the smallest and weakest, but she is getting better too! Her sister gets to go live with her daddy and her new family who is going to spoil her rotten and make her into a loving mommy who will have puppies as beautiful as she is!
My sister looks fat and sassy and is ready for action! we are going to have an awesome realtionship and momma will make her a page of her own soon!
BULLY HUGS AND KISSES TO ALL YOU PUPS OUT THERE!

I have great news! I have a new sister! Her name is Flash! The circumstances I recieved her in were not so happy however. She lived next door to us with 3 brothers and 6 sisters. Well, my grandpa found her in a tiny rabbit hutch with chicken wire across the front. That wasnt the worst part! He went over there because he smelled something really really bad...turned out to be a dead puppy and a skeleton in the same cage with her and 3 other puppies. Grandpa was FURIOUS and proceeded to take all four of the puppies out and take them to his house. He then cursed out and gave what for to the neighbor and the roommate who was supposed to be taking care of them while the neighbor was away. Momma heard that the pups were standing in their own waste, covered in fleas and bloated because of worms, but still had their ribs showing.
Grandpa immeadiately took action and went down to the tractor supply store to get some dewormer for all of the sick babies. Both grandma and grandpa washed them over and over several times to try to get the fleas off of them. Grandma went to the store and got all the necessary food to feed them with and started with the recoup efforts. The smallest, frailest one decided she was going to eat until she popped and then threw up and was just so tire she laid in it. =(. Momma came to save the day the next week and helped grandma take the two sickest ones to the vet.
Grandpa had to give the two healthier ones back to the neighbor, but he has been checking on them everyday to make sure they are being treated right. The neighbor was just a stupid idiot who didnt know what a huuuge responisibilty 9 puppies would be. He was trying to pin the mom in with them so the just drained her, and then when they were ready for solid food, decided dog food would be okay. Not puppy food. Dog food. Then decided that his way of taking care of them was to hose out their waste in the morning leave them with water all day. hose out their waste in the evening and feed them and just leave 'em. HOW COULD HE BE SOO STUPID?!
Grandpa forced the neighbor to take the other two to the vet to get their DAPP shots just like the two we are taking care of got.

I would like you all to know my brother passed away at age 11. (dats what momma said happen to him when I couldnt find him one day) . She hopes he passed away in his sleep because grandpa found him and he looked like he was sleeping.
Momma has been very sad and she wrote a eulogy for him that she hasn'n been able to type up. I am always looking for him now when I get let out to go potty and I don't know what death means. I just know momma and grandpa and grandma are sad. I try to keep my sister Shelly company when I go out also because he isn't around anymore to keep her company. Shelly and big brother live outside and keep scary things away from the house while i do inside patrol. Momma says she'll hug on big brother and love on him so much when she sees him at rainbow bridge but i dunno what that means.
He was a good brother who kept me in line when I was a young pup. his name was Jazz and he was a good rottie who was an excellent guard b/c he had a mean bark but he was nice to people. Shelly is a fox terrier who tries to fill his shoes but is not quite as scary sounding. I love him and momma loves him. She wants me to tell him rest in peace. so I'll say it to make her happy. REST IN PEACE BIG BRO!!!
