Arrival Story: We were looking for a companion for our other bulldog who is a year and a half old and missing her daddy who is in Iraq. She is a daddy's girl to the max and I thought maybe someone to play with would help her plus if we got a boy then we could stud him some. Plus I was hoping I would end up the main one in his life....lol So we went shopping online, me here in the USA and him in Iraq, we found our boy just outside of Houston, Tx, so my daughter and I drove from FT Hood, Tx to there which was a four hour drive one way and I fell in love and now we have the SkitZ.
I come with a heavy with broken heart and empty soul to let you dear friends and companions know that on Feb. 17,2012 our Beau Ashley got very ill very quickly and was rushed to hospital where they kept him and worked on him 24 - 7 doing everything the could to find out just what was wrong with him but in the end the illness which we knew not took our baby boys life at about 10:00am on Feb. 21,2012. Which I find so profoundly odd since it was just around Feb 16th of last year that a medication I was taking for my fibromyagia nearly killed me but for my Beau Ashley and BabyGirl who were the only ones there at the time and knew something was wrong. My blood pressure had dropped to almost nothing and they laid on the bed with me for about 48hrs and everytime mom did not appear to be breathing or showed no signs of movement they would lick me or use their paws to stimulate me until I did move and kept me moving long enough that my blood pressure would go up enough for me to stay alive until the medication was out of my system enough for me to be able to function and realize what was going on. So to loose my baby one yr later has just devastated me after all he has done for me. He was such a good little bully, always a Southern Gentleman, always the clown when someone was feeling down. He had a beautiful bully face, the perfect bully body and form for showing but we got our bullies to just love them and be loved back by them, that is all we wanted from them was love and laughter and boy have they given us plenty of that.
But what you may not know is our Beau Ashley was a severe Epeleptic Seizure baby and it had begun to get pretty bad the last few months and we had had to up his phenobarb and was having to concider even taking him off of it and putting him on something else to control his seizues. I miss him so very very much, I am so lost without him, I cannot even begin to explain how lost and lonely I am without my boy, he took care of me because he knew mommy had some bad health issues because of the falling and having to be in bed most of the time and then came the wheelchair which he loved to sit in my lap and ride in or me put him in the seat and ride him around in it or he would just walk along side me in it like the obedent little bully he was who knew his job and place and what to do when he saw mommy start to fall. How do you thank a little white bull for all the wonderful times and love that he has blessed you with, how do you thank God for blessing you with such a special little friend without sounding so angry for taking that little friend away at only four yrs of age, he was so young to go why why now he was sill a baby, what had he done to deserve to have to leave now, we loved and took good good care of him why did he have to hurt and suffer so he never hurt anyone. He was so sweet and pleasent and loving, all he ever wanted was to be loved, that is all just to be loved and I think we did a wonderful job of loving him his short little time here on earth with us, we tried, I know this old woman would give anything to have him back but not in pain or if he was gonna be different than the boy I had, but I do want him here with me because I am so lonely without him and I miss all the things he does, especially at night when he would get cold and come looking for a place to get warm...haha which meant ok mommy I here warm me up and so he would make himself at home on top of my blanket between my legs with his head on my tummy and want me to rub his head, I think he usually had a headache due to the phenobarb so I would rub the head so he would go to sleep and stop kicking...haha But what I would give to have him back to do it again
Well my little Angel Beau Ashley please have fun and play your little heart out every day till you just have to lay down for a nappy ok. And at night be sure to watch da stars and mommy an daddy wil be watching dem wif you and we will meet you over at the moon I promise.

Well dis is my first entry in a long while. But I amz so cited dat I felt it was time to share dis wif ofers. As youz all knowz, well mostest of you anywayz, that my daddy will be leaving for Iraq after Christmas. And last Christmas that is where he was and next Christmas he will be in Iraq still. So him talked to mommy and asked if her felt it would be good to takez me and sissy (BabyGirl) on himz last hunting weekend before leaving. Mommy sayz yes but you better keep an eye on dem dogz cause dey will getz into just about anyfing...BOL
So me an sissy ran to da bedroomz and started packing all our stuffz for da weekend even thoughz we wasn't pose to knowz but had been evezdropinz..hehe. Well mommy n daddy heard all da noise and comed to see what was going on and just busted out laughing, you see we bof had packed about four suitcasez a piece. Well dey limited us to one a piece.
We gotz on da road and had so muchez fun lookinz out da window and saw so many new placez. When we gotz to da camp house daddy beded us down for da night. And den OMD him woked us up afore da sun had comed up and took us to a little fing called a blind and boy was it cold and den tellz us we habe to be quiet so da deers will comez up. Who he fink him is telling two bulldogs to be quiet when dey is all kinds ob animalz an birdz out der to bark at.....BOL Finally we gotz tired and laid down an wentz to sleep.
We got back to da camp and daddy started workinz on building new steps and a bigger porch. Him let us runz around and play and chase fingz and just be puppy dogz. Oh what a wonderbull time it was wif our daddy. It is a Christmas Gift from himz an mommy dat will never be topped. I knowz I will never ever forgetz such a wonderbull Christmas. I hopez dat all da furz of da world will getz to have a special Christmas in dey lives like I did dis Christmas...I will never forgetz it..Tanks mommy n daddy, we lubz you so bery much...
Wow I can hardly write dis cause I can'tz stop waughing. I have waughed so much my belly is hurting and I keepz crying. I was waying in da yard takin in some Cz. Well my sissy dog was waying out by da humming bird feeders and I heard her give out a couple of yelps and take off running and den her fell down and started rolling on da ground. So I getz up to seez what da heck is going on and OMD dez humming birds was chasin her and pecking her on da hinny. I started waughingz and just falled down on da ground rollingz cause I was waughing so hard. It was da funniestest ting I have ever seen.
Well her gotz mad at me for waughing and ran to da house to tell mommy on me, but I didn't carez cause it was still funny to me. BOL
