He will get us over any issues we are having now and will retrain for any thing that comes up in the future. We asked the rescue for help a week ago and still haven't heard anything. I'm not holding my breath. I can see if we are going to keep him we are on our own.
    I'm so sorry… do you know anything about his past? Did they tell you he had aggression issues? Seems like you guys are just swimming on your own in this… not fair!!!

    Happy Birthday beautiful Bella, you were so blessed to have had her love even though hubby got most of it... but she knew you were her caretaker when she needed you most.

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    He was never in the rescue so we are relying on what the owners have said. They are telling us he is good with dogs, but I can't see that he was socialized because they finally told us that he was walked twice a day and they crated. He has great manners but a lot of energy which is fine. I am working on that. When he gets crazy and starts nipping at us I make him go into a down stay until he gets the message that what he is doing is unacceptable. He is super smart and catching on. He jumped all over our counters when he first came to us and he doesn't do it at all now. I think there is hope.

    Yeah I wouldn't consider 2 walks a day as socializing… Ugh I'm sorry that they weren't up front w/you about it. I know you can train him up to be a great addition to your family, and of course you have our support along the way!!! Good luck

    Lynn, you have a great way with words, sincere, wise, funny...always helpful & caring
    most importantly, to the point! I always look forward to your insights and the laughs

    HAHAHA...people are sick of hearing me go on and on...and on and on...and on and on.

    Love these pics of your bullies, Tracey. I love that description of Bella and
    can imagine how much you loved her after she let you into her heart. Cami
    is much the same, slavishly adored Aaron while I slaved, for her! When she
    let me into her heart 4 months later, I was so proud! When she looked at ME
    with her adoring eyes another 2 months later, it meant so much more to me.
    She sure made me work for it, lol

    Happy Birthday, dear Bella...your Momma sure loved you and you brought her
    so much happiness & love, such precious gifts you gave her & your family. Be
    happy at Rainbow Bridge & run free with your babies, Wellie & Winston and all
    the bullies. RIP beautiful Bella, give Jesus sloppy kisses from all of us here.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    HAHAHA...love you, Girlfriend! My nick name when younger was Cosmic Carol

    Really tho, many disliked me in my younger days, called me arrogant and gossiped
    all the time. I was wild but always had morals and I cared not one bit of their lies &
    spitefulness. They paid heavy too if they incurred my wrath! I'm so mellow now, lol
