    Default Mabel started it!

    For the first time yesterday, we felt like Mabel was "getting it!" When I came home from the hospital, she almost bowled me over by hitting me in the backs of the legs and insisted I get down on the floor with her. Then she (drumroll, please) started to play with us! It was her idea for the first time! This was the answer to many prayers. It didn't last long, but we see changes like this every day.

    it makes me so happy to see Goldie playing and wrestling with Remy and actually playing with toys. When she first got here she didn't want anything to do with the boys or toys. It's just sad that Mabel and Goldie had to spend the first part of their lives living in kennels with no socialization!! Yay, Mabel!!!

    Thanks, Jeannie. The spontaneous jumping around and playing did the same to us. She still has issues and probably always will, but these moments of pure bulldog joy are amazing to see in this little girl!

    It's so much fun to see them come out of their shells and experience being dogs! She loves her deer antler and is learning to use her paws to hold things. It breaks my heart to know that these dogs were so neglected. They have phenomenal personalities!

    Awesome!! That was such a sweet video! No better feeling then seeing them play for the first time. I almost cried when we first saw Princess (we adopted her in January and she just turned 10) playing with my other two and running to the door to greet us when we came home! Hope Mabel keeps playing like this, I want to see more videos!

    I really enjoyed this video. Great job on getting her acclimated to her new home so quickly!!!! I love how she plays and then when she's done, she makes no bones about telling you she's done. And she has the cuties little hiney!
    Congrats! I know you're a proud family.

    Chris, tears of JOY are running down my cheeks, I am so happy for all of you.

    I remember when Brutus (crated all his 4 years & multiple owners) began to
    trust, then learned to play then even pick up a toy for just a second...he did learn
    and enjoy, chewing on his chicken flavored Nylabone.

    They are so very worth every second of hope, time, love & money.

    Y'all & Mabel are just so very blessed (and worthy)...Enjoy each other & life together.

    Thank you for adopting Mabel then sticking out the scary issues & numerous vet bills.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
