    I think it may be the same setup. My friend has been going for years there for yappy hour, I'll have to ask her. She lives right there so hopefully she has been since the new rules!

    I've been MIA but we WILL be at Bullypalooza on 4/20. We cannot wait! It will be our first ever and I think Oliver will be so happy. His sister. Henrietta, might come along. Looking forward to it!
    Life is always an Adventure with Oliver!

    We didnt stay for the entire time, we got there at 1230, and Gizmo was being a butt - she really didnt like the bully with the TUTU on which nipped at Hershey - we took them for a walk and then dottie sat in the car while Gizmo snoozed and I went back in, until the raffle... darn thing we really like (everyone liked!) was the concrete bulldog statue. Oh well.

    We did have an interesting trip to Bullypoolooza, as we stopped at a rest area, to get rid of the morning coffee, and let the pups take a break, well lo and behold, we get stopped by a couple on the way home to Boston, he works in Watertown, and they were on Vacation. We told them about Bullypoolooza, and that it was an hour up the road (they were going in that direction anyhow) - we get on the turnpike, and there is the Boston Couple, I changed lanes, they changed lanes... YUP they are stalking us to Bullypoolooza ! LOL it was nice chatting with them, we introduced ourselves while Gizmo was acting up... so I dont remember their names but I gave them my Email address I hope they write ! I told them about EBN and rescue etc etc etc

    I told everyone I talked to about EBN, but no one acted like they 'hung out here' so I guess I didnt find Blue

    we got home and Hershey didnt want to walk at all, I think his leg was really bothering him pretty bad. I think Dottie will babysit him next week here at the house and I'll take Ms. Gizmo to Bullyfest. and I'm gonna definately stand out at Bullyfest, make a sign or something, cause there were SOOOOOOOOOO many people and dogs, in a pretty tight area Bullyfest, there is more of an open area, so if Gizmo starts getting ancy I'll be able to get her out to her own little area.

    I think most of the bullies got nipped at by the one in the Tutu. She and Lucy had a few scrapes in the off-leash area. Lol

    @RaRett @Deestar
    Got there at 1. Were walking in circles looking for Gizmo and Hershey. I kept saying their names hoping you'd overhear me and say something..lol..

    We were standing near the water bowls when the raffle was going on (Blue refused to drink ouf of any of them). Kept looking around for someone from EBN but nada.

    There was another puppy there, a six month old girl who Blue played with for a bit. She was adorable. I took some pics and will start a thread tomorrow. Will tag you guys if you'd like.

    OH OH, and apparently (and I heard this for 2 ladies that we became very friendly with), we were "discussed" at the event. Some people thought it was a terrible idea to bring a puppy there. WTF?? he's had all his shots, even bordetella and I can't think of a better way to socialize a puppy. Hell, I definitely don't want a "pink tutu" issue in the future.

    Oh and the tutu girl was a big issue in the off leash area. We were there when she got into a scuffle with another dog. Then later she went after Blue but that ended before it started. Yeah, handful for sure.

    Ohhhh I'm a slacker. I forgot to check on here before I went to figure out a meet up with everyone. I did meet up with @AdventuresWithOliver and @NJBullyMommy ... In fact @AdventuresWithOliver shared some pics on the following thread. I am hoping to make it to HeaventSent's Bully Bash next week, that's a bit farther for me but I've worked more with that organization.

    I think I can tell you why a puppy was the talk there. It happens at every rescue benefit we've been too. There are some 'Rescue Snobs' that 'OMG! a puppy! you MUST of gotten him/her from a Puppy Miller or a Back Yard Breeder! OH for SHAME ! you should of fostered a dog in need, or adopted a dog in need' those folks tend to overlook a simple fact, you are a bulldog lover, *AND* you have come out to support the Breed, AND the Rescue (with your donations) - I have seen some where, that its said -

    Adopt a dog in need, if you can't adopt ...
    Foster a dog in need, if you can't foster ...
    Transport a dog in need, if you can't foster ...
    Volunteer for the rescue for other jobs ... if you can't Volunteer,
    Donate to the rescues ... if you are unable to donate ...
    Spread the word about rescues !

    You see, we each do what we can, some of us do a little more, some do a little less, but ANYTHING helps, I have choosen to go to CAFEPRESS and ordered about 10 tee shirts from different rescues (they get a portion of the sale) AND I'm a 6'4" walking BULLY-TIN-BOARD for Rescues. No we didnt get Gizmo or Hershey via conventional rescue organizations, we stepped in before they went to the rescues.

    So dont worry about the whispers, I'll guarantee that most of those dogs there were purchased as a puppy.

    I had to laugh, there was a guy when asked the age of his dog 'He is 9 months, he's a Miniature' I advised the couple that followed us from the rest stop off the turnpike, that 'There isn't such a breed as a miniature English bulldog, and to stay away from the Rare colors, as they are breed not for health but for their colors only' I should of taken a picture, because his 'Miniature at 9 months was at least 6 inches in the shoulders taller than Hershey, who is 14 months old! (but I was nice . . . for once) and if you looked at the dogs face, it had more of a boston terrier look to it for lack of better works to describe it.

    @RaRett Thanks, I get it now.
    And here I thought they were more concerned for the well being of a puppy at the event. The fact that Blue isn't a rescue didn't even cross my mind. Wow, just wow. That would also explain all the questions I was asked about where I got him, how I chose his breeder etc.

    Oh well, it is what it is and I don't believe I need to explain our decision to anyone.

    I will continue to donate and support a few local organizations (by local I mean NY/NJ), and the auctions held here on EBN. Too bad the rescues don't realize, or maybe they just don't care, how that attitude can turn off so many potentional donators...

    The people who volunteer at the Rescues are a Godsend. It's true though that some of them have an attitude that can turn people off. There was a bully in my area that got loose from its house a few weeks ago. It turned into a Facebook war because the Rescue person posted very uncomplimentary things about the bully owner on FB and even made it difficult for the owner to get their dog back. I think what they do is phenomenal but you really don't want to air out an issue on the internet or treat the owners like they're criminals. They didn't abandon or abuse their dog. He just got loose.

    On Saturday a few people asked me if Lucy was a rescue. I didn't feel bad that she's not. I felt good that all kinds of peeps were there supporting the cause.
