    I wouldn't use anything for puppy bedding - in the crate - that couldn't be washed. Especially when he's so new to you. That fluffy bed is fun but can you throw it in the washer? That's my criteria for anything bulldog around here.

    He's adorable. Flat adorable. Whatta face. Chunk is a doll boy.

    Chunk is such a cutie! Congrats on your new baby! I hope everything is going well and the little guy is getting all settled in. You got a ton of good advice above and there is always more if you need it from this bulldog community! Welcome!

    Yeah, sorry about that. Here you go. He is doing very well though his little cough is hanging in there. Hopefully the antibiotics kick in soon.

    Hello! I am a new proud owner of a bully puppy! But I am very anxious about leaving him home alone for the first time. My kids are home over Christmas break and are able to take him on bathroom breaks, play, etc... but will have to go back to school at the beginning of next week and I'll be at work. Any suggestions? I don't want to lose all the potty training we've gotten accomplished this far.

    Hello @StacieD and welcome to EBN!!! You wont' lose all the potty training you've done so far, but depending on how long he'll be alone for you will probably need to expect SOME accidents. It just goes with the territory of having a new puppy, they simply can't hold it as long as an adult.

    How long will he be alone for???

    He will be alone for up to 8 hours. I could have my parents check in on him once a day, but don't want to burden them with that. I'm still bringing him to my office, but will soon have to leave him at home. I thought of trying the pee pads or newspaper. I put a pad in his kennel at night but he just shreds it, so I'm hoping he goes on the paper when he has to go!
