    THanks everyone for the suggestions/compliments. @JeannieCO He is 11 months. @Sherry He doesn't get in the pool, so his feet aren't wet much. I think maybe he just drags his feet too much. Guess I'll limit my walks to 45 min. on concrete or take him to dog park more often. Last few times I went though..a little drama. I have 2 other dogs (one is 26 lbs and the other is 13 lbs). They have the dog park sectioned off ..small dogs (under 20 lbs) and large dog side. My littlest dog doesn't much care for the big dogs so we usually hang out in the small dog park. Lately, small dog park has been a little annoying. Old guy came in and said..'he's not 20 lbs! get him in the other side!' Bubba is so submissive and doesn't hurt a fly! Most of the regulars there know Bubba and don't mind him being on the small dog side. The other night, a small terrier (about 25 lbs) had an attitude when he first walked in to the dog park. Came up to BUbba and his teeth latched on to his side and was going nuts! Bubba..just stood there. His owner (well, he actually didn't know the dog much) took him off of Bubba. I guess bulldogs have thick skin! I thought for sure he would have holes in him! Well..no marks seen! Thank goodness for all that skin!

    Poor baby!! You need to take care not to overdo the walks specially on concrete. I know that Mocha gets really tired after 30 minutes or so. And the bottom of their paws are a bit sensitive too. Maybe when you go for walks let him be on the grass(they do like it better) Another sugestion is to use a paw conditioner like for example Exell, but if you look online you will find other name brands. He is so beautifull!!

    God, I just love Bubba.

    As for the nails...a gal I work with has English Bulldogs, and hers have the same problem as Bubba does. They just have little nubs for nails..there's hardly anything there. They are always right at the quick--nothing to clip. I think some dogs are honestly just like that. Delilah isn't like that. Her nails don't grow too terribly fast..but I grind them down once a week and I keep hers right at the quick as I don't want her quick growing out.

    And as far as the bleeding goes--septic powder..get some, it's a miracle worker!! I groom dogs and I always have some handy for if an accident occurs while I'm clipping nails. I see some long gnarly nails, so inevitably I accidentally quick a dog when it's quick has been able to grow out like that. You put it on there for a few seconds and apply pressure, and voila! Bleeding stops. It's awesome. You can get it at Farm and Fleet if you have one local..it's only like $3 there. It's $10 at Petco or Petsmart. Or you could probably order online.

    A bar of soap will work also to stop the bleeding!
