  • Happy Holidays full of Hospice Happiness!

    It is so wonderful to see the joy that was brought to our Hospice Bulldogs this holiday season. Hilly, Mr. Burger, Max and Otis are very thankful for the wonderful gifts they received from our English Bulldog News members.

    For those of you that are new to the forum, English Bulldog News has a Hospice Sponsorship program. We all band together and donate a little bit each month to help our friends at Southern California Bulldog Rescue, Rescue Ohio English Bulldogs, and Indiana Bulldog Rescue. We also made a special exception to help EBN's own little Abby Sweetiehead.

    Our English Bulldog rescue friends don't pick and choose which bulldogs come to them. Many times, older bulldogs or ones who have tremendous medical needs live their lives with their foster families. Not that they are never chosen, but it is very hard to find the perfect homes for these older sweet souls. The costs of food and medications for the Hospice Bulldogs can add up fast over a year.

    EBN created the Hospice Sponsorship, after learning about the tragic past of a beautiful sweet girl named Pearl. She had extreme medical needs and SCBR found her a perfect foster family to care for her until the time came for her to go to rainbow bridge. We wanted to help, so we thought, "What if we all band together to support Pearl, and cover her cost of food and medicine each month?"

    Thus, the Hospice Sponsorship Program was born. We now currently have 4 bulldogs that the members of English Bulldog News band together and sponsor. If you would like to learn more about this wonderful program, Click Here.

    Sweetiehead crossed over to the rainbow bridge on November 23rd. With our hearts full of sorrow we knew it would be so hard but we really wanted Beverly to still have the gifts, so Abby sent them to her brother Otis to always remember her. It was with a heavy heart we got to see him with his gifts.

    Special thanks to 2bullymama for putting together the bulldog stockings, and to Beth at Kuranda dog beds for discounting and shipping the dog beds to our special friends!

    Here are the photos, enjoy!!

      This is a wonderful program! Thank you all for remembering the special bullies people often forget. Max, Burger, their foster parents and IBR appreciate you more than know. Your sponsorships allow these bullies to have the families, care and love they deserve even if they never get adopted.

      It makes me feel so good to be able to contribute to this. I don't have a bulldog; but have loved them every since my brother's first English bulldog came waddling into a family gathering, a mass of wrinkles, snorting and grunting obscenely.

      Kacey spent several vacations with me during her 11 years. I realized that as she got older, that keeping her healthy and happy was a big commitment both in terms of time and money. My sister in law did a wonderful job; when Kacey visited, my sister in law would provide all her meals, cooked, bagged and frozen and detailed instructions for food and medication. But I know not everyone has the means or time to provide this care, no matter how much they love the bully. You can't buy loving care, so I like to chip in with the expense, and know that they aren't just getting physical care, but love as well. They deserve it. The bulldog appearance I find so engaging comes at a cost to the bullys in terms of comfort, health, and lifespan. They bring me such pleasure, it's the least I can do to give some back.

      This brings such a warmth in my heart to see them and to know they had a wonderful Christmas. I just love being able to contribute each month for Hilly, Mr. Burger and Max. Otis looks so comfy.

      What a wonderful job you did Christine on getting the care packages together.

      Makes me so happy to see and read this.

      The hospice program is such a worthwhile cause and I know I am rewarded 10,000 fold each time I hear or read about one of our hospice bullies.
