We always get the.... "oh my goodness are they ok? Why do they snort and breathe so loud" my response generally is surprised because until they point it out to me I honestly don't hear it. I know that silence is now deafening but snorting is bliss!!! I then get the "that noise would drive me nuts" well in my opinion it wouldn't be that far of a drive!! I love all 3 of my bully babies and all of their slobbery noisy snorty snotty gassy sweet habits.
