Quick Bio:

December 20th 2006

Gabe LOVES to play with his Jolly Ball & is quick to grab a tug toy when company arrives. He loves riding in the car, skateboarding, riding his horsie & getting a chest scratch!

Gabe doesn't like to have his ears cleaned (though he tolerates it like a manly man when it's needed!)

Favorite Toy:
His Jolly Ball, tug toy, Heave-A-Beaver (Chuck-A-Duck, etc.)

Favorite Food:
He likes IAMS puppy treats (they're easy to break into small pieces so he can watch his svelte figure!), chicken breast, frozen broccoli

Favorite Walk:
Gabe loves to go walking in the arbortetum near WWU, close by our neighborhood.

Best Tricks:
Riding a rocking horse, skateboarding, flushing the toilet, bringing kleenex when I sneeze, closing doors, etc., etc...this boy's got TALENT!

Arrival Story:
Gabe was born into our family just a few days before Christmas--he and his two sisters were all white, so the litter was affectionately referred to as our "Jingle Bull" litter. Initially Gabe was called "Johnny", short for "Round John Virgin"...a little play on the Christmas theme! Since I never keep males, I didn't expect to keep this boy around, but with his exceptional smarts & personality, he weaseled his way into our hearts! While keeping him for several months for a lady who was in a body cast, I began his training & he quickly started racking up titles & awards. When his prospective owner was told "No more dogs!" by her landlord, the decision was easy...he would stay HOME. (And, he was given a more "classy" name of "SittingBullies Glad Tidings" or "Gabe" for short!

Gabe earned his Rally Novice title at 7.5 months, with placings each time, then followed this with his Companion Dog title by the time he was 11 months old. With minimal showing, Gabe was first for his breed in his level for the year! Gabe has since earned his Rally Advanced & Rally Excellent titles & was the #6 Non-Sporting Dog in Novice obedience for the year. Gabe LOVES to learn & is full of bulldog personality! He has an impressive repertoire of tricks which include skateboarding, opening/closing his crate, flushing the toilet, bringing me kleenex when I sneeze, and--his most unique trick--riding a rocking horse! So Gabe ROCKS...literally!!! FLASH!!! Gabe recently was honored by being crowned the FIRST EVER "WoRLdWiDE FiDO"!!! Nick at Nite had an online contest where people uploaded videos of their dogs in one of six categories, then people cast their votes for their favorite pups. Gabe was the finalist for the "Best Trick" category (against some very talented competition!) & won a trip to Hollywood for the live TV awards special. He went on to win the $15,000 Grand Prize & was crowned the first official "Worldwide Fido". (the network is hoping to make this an annual contest, so YOU might get your chance to be on TV in the coming years, too!) Gabie says a HUGE THANK-YOU to all of his loyal GaBeSTeRoOTer PaWSeE PaLs for helping him in his ride to victory!

Just after we got back from HollyWoOF for the Worldwide Fido Awards, a friend emailed me & told me that America's Funniest Videos was requesting videos of bulldogs doing amazing tricks and other silly stunts...well, we got filming again & came up with a clip of some of my top tricks thats better than ever! Currently it is the Top Rated video on their site & we could make it back to HollyWoOF if all goes well! Come check out my vid & give it your best SMiLeY rating so I can be on da BiG ScReEN once again & get the rest of the money for my new Honda Element! ;) Mom's been driving an ancient car & I kinda thought it would be nice to get her a new one for her birthday--I got a good start towards it with my Fido win, and just need another good boost to finish it off! Anyway, you can watch my video & vote for it by giving it a FiVE SMiLeY rating EVERYDAY! Here's da link: mId=6325790

After my devoted GabesteRooters have faithfully been pluggin' away at voting for over TWO MONTHS, we just got word that we are among the top 24 dogs out of the nearly 3,000 entries! We've got a lot of our Bully Buddies working hard at getting me to Hollywood, and now we've REALLY got to get serious! I've sure got some wonderful friends who believe in me, so it just could happen!
