    There's your answer! She said you could have whatever you want. You want both!!

    Personally, I'd take the girl. Girls are easier

    +1 exactly what I was going to say as well, Great advice!

    I've always went with female dogs so I told myself I was going for a male bulldog for sure.

    I love boys, I would go with the boy if thats what you originally wanted. And yes definitely stainless steel, these english bulldogs are messy eaters! Chew toys also tend not to last long, but the stuffed animals with a plastic bottle in it instead of stuffing are awesome, you can just change the bottle as needed. And Gio also loves to chew on rubber frisbees (the Kong one is awesome!).

    Keep us posted when you decide! Either way you are gonna be in love with which ever one you choose!

    Well coop was the wild naghty one when he was a baby...he would bite like no other and now at 7 months he is the chillest dog I have ever had! So don't let that scare you away. Gracie was the more chill one when she was a baby and slept all the time, but now she is a little ball of spunk! But she has a awesome personality!!!! You will know when you know!

    Crate, pee pee pads if yo are going that route ( I never used them) toys, nylabones, carpet cleaner/disinfectant she/he will have accidents. Get him a blanket or something for inside his crate....go to petco or whatever pet store you have there and go Crazy!!! You will constantly be buying stuff for your bully believe me!!!! Yes stainless steel bowls! collar, leash

    I think the boy has great coloring! But you say the girl is sweet. So you already know they won't stay little and puppy-cute. I know it's hard to see the future but try to imagine a boisterous male that might be hard to keep in control but probably smarter because of his curiosity and then a more calm submissive female who will lay on the couch next to you with her head on your lap. How much of yourself are you willing to put into training your new baby? Females have heats. Will you and your spouse be willing to deal with the maintenance of that plus the wrinkle cleaning and the bootie cleaning? Is the tail easy to clean around? Both sexes can be stubborn so that is a given.

    I'm not one to talk though. I went to pick up my male and came home with him and his sister! Guess what? My husband didn't leave me! Well, uh he couldn't have anyway. He was in a rented hospital bed in our home as he had just had foot surgery. Ha! But he never objected and became extremely attached to the female and had her on his lap all the time and even sang to her (but he'll never admit it). Good Luck!

    That's such a hard choice, they're both beautiful! I've always been partial to males too and have only had makes for many years, until this past January. I too as torn between two pups, one male and one female. But deep in my heart I knew I really wanted a female this time and home came Emma. Our other guy is a male and he's just over a year now. Both sexes are. Sry different on their personalities. Go with what your heart says, deep down you may already know which on you want. They're both so so cute!!! Good luck!
