    Default To my #1 Snuggle Buddy SPIKE

    I haven't been able to bear coming on the site since I lost Spike in January 2014. Every time I see a bully (especially one that looks like him) I burst into tears.

    Spike stole my heart from the very first time I saw him when I sat on the floor at his previous owner's house and he climbed right into my lap ! One look at that beautiful face and I was hooked. I've always been a "big dog" type of person but now I can't imagine owning anything other than a Bully.

    He was my constant companion. All it took was jingling my keys and he was ready to go for a car ride - of course he had to ride shotgun Trips to the groomers meant a stop at Dunkin Donuts where he could get his favorite treat a cheesy bagel twist that we would share. He LOVED to snuggle. He knew that if I grabbed a certain blanket that it was snuggle time with Mommy! His favorite place to sleep was in my lap with his head laying on my chest if we were sitting in the recliner or curled up behind me in bed with his head on the pillow. Spike seemed to have this uncanny way of knowing when I wasn't feeling well (I have fibromyalgia) and would sleep in just the right spot in bed that would make me feel better.

    To my beautiful 'poopa dog'.. Mommy loves you so much and misses you every day. Until we see each other again my sweet baby.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss… Spike was an adorable bully, I just LOVE all the pics that you have shared w/us. I completely understand your pain and loss… I have lost bullies, and it's very hard to explain to others the attachment that we have to these "special" babies. We are here for you to grieve… I can't tell you how much everyone at EBN comforted me when I lost my dear Winston. I honestly don't know what I would of done w/out them…

    Sending you lots of hugs and prayers…

    RIP Wellie, Bella, Winston & Roxie

    Very sorry for your loss of a beautiful boy Spike. He will always live in your heart and his spirit will always be there.

    Dear Marion...what a fabulous letter to your beloved Spike. He is very
    handsome and how lucky you are that he was a cuddler as well, some
    bullies aren't. I feel your broken heart in every word but...such a love
    and an incredible bond between the two of you. It's beyond devastating
    to lose that, the loss is immeasurable and the grief beyond description.
    I'm so very sorry you've lost him and my heart hurts for your pain and
    yearning for him. I shall lift your broken heart up to GOD and pray for HIS
    comfort and peace to fill you up and send you another bully needing your
    huge heart to love them too and provide a forever home as you gave Spike.
    That is what GOD did for me when I lost my 1st bully, Brutus, only 7 months
    after I adopted him, like you and Spike, it was instant love for both of us and
    we continued to be 'joined at the hip' until his sudden and untimely death at
    the Vet's for teeth cleaning. I had just joined EBN and honestly, without their
    kind and caring support, not sure I'd be here! Please stay and share your stories
    & pics of Spike...love to hear and see more of him (and you). It was a breeder on
    here, Davidh, who connected me with a friend of his needing to rehome his bully.
    My son drove the 5 hours to Houston and picked up Cami, snoring & snuggled beside
    me right now and filling my heart & home, as YOU know, only a bully can! Spike's
    special place in your heart will never be filled but there is another bully needing your
    love and your home, when you are ready, I encourage you to get another one.

    I have Fibro,, Lupus & other 'nasties', I have a friend (w/same illnesses) living in Nashua
    and other things in common as you. Please feel free to PM me w/your email or phone #
    if you'd like to talk ever, I'm a great listener! Welcome to EBN, a great place to be <3


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    While you mourn the loss of a love one, their place will never ever be filled. However, find solace knowing that another bully is just waiting to love and be loved. Please open your arms again. These animals need you and I know you need them too.

    I know how hard it was to do but I'm glad you posted Spikes story. The pics are beautiful. Maybe one day you can love another bully and get comfort from that. My condolences on the loss of your beautiful boy.

    I am so sorry for the loss of Your Precious Spike, God Bless You and Your Family. I know what it is like, I have lost several of my 4 legged babies. Elmo is my First Bulldog. You will be reunited one day, never to part again. This keeps me going, to know I will see My 4 Legged Babies again. Love To You Marion.
