    Default Louie at 8 weeks old!

    I got to visit with Louie last night and I am so in love with him! Just 10 more days until he gets to come home. It was hard to get good pictures because he wouldn't sit still.

    -louie-1-jpg-louie-2-jpg-louie-3-jpg-louie-4-jpg-louie-5-jpg-louie-6-jpg-louie-7-jpg-louie-8-jpg-louie-9-jpg

    Does anyone had any last words of wisdom or advice for me? I have medicated wipes, witch hazel, unscented baby wipes, medicated shampoo (already have everything for Jax). I would love any tips for dealing with two dogs that people have learned along the way. One question I have is should I feed them both at the same time? Anything else I should know?

    I think everything will kick in once chunky monkey is home. One thing I sure would feed them at the same time. No food jealousy.

    It was soooo hard to leave him. But the countdown is actually 9 days now. We are picking him up 1 day earlier. I just want to go to sleep and have it be April 28.

    OMG!!!!! He looks so much like my Canelo when he was a pup. He's so handsome. It sounds like you are prepared for day one, and when he comes home you'll figure out what he needs. When we brought Nelo home he found a hole in the fence and went in the neighbor's yard. I wasn't prepared for that and got that fixed, lol.

    My advice, get a little fan and make sure you have a cooling pad or the cooling work out towels. Bullies can overheat quickly. Below is a picture and the little fan is Canelo's fan. They run around $15 at Walmart and put out a lot of air. Nelo will park in front of the fan to cool off. We live south of Houston, TX so I make sure Canelo being cool is a priority. We've had two incidents with him over heating, one required emergency care and the second we caught it and addressed it before it got bad.

    He is just gorgeous CB,Geez he is gonna be a big Gentleman.
    One thing we do all the time in hot weather is use a empty plastic coke or whatever bottle , fill it 3/4 full of water and freeze them , it can be used for the pup to cool down or at is melts cold drinking water , easy to store when your traveling . Sometimes we just leave one on the back seat for the dogs ( on a towel ) they love to lick the condensation off the bottle as it melts .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    In Seattle, while we have the Spring pollen, we certainly don't have the Spring weather at all. Rain, rain and more rain. We are lucky if we get to 60 degrees. But eventually (hopefully we will warm up). I have a cooling mat that Jax refuses to use and I was going to get some of those cooling towels. The house has A/C if we ever get warm weather. Thankfully I've never had any overheating issues with Jax.
    @natski282 you have TWO puppies coming home this weekend?? And yes, I think Louie is going to big boy!

    I could have brought him home this weekend but it is my mom's 70th birthday and family is in town visiting and I am having a birthday party for her at my house on Saturday and visiting with family on Sunday. So I didn't want there to be too many new faces/people and kids screaming on his first day home. I didn't want him to get overwhelmed. I want his adjustment to be as smooth as possible. And it's easier for us to bring him home on a weekend than during the week. So I have to just torture myself until April 28. He'll probably be a giant by the time he comes home lol. He actually does look bigger in the pictures then in person.

    I knew you were getting Meg...had no idea about Sophie! Or maybe I did and forgot. Congrats on both of your babies!
