    Default Hubby Is Under The Influence

    Yes, I believe IT is happening, Mr Brutie is working his bully magic
    on Hubby. I was ill this last week and finally (grudgingly, as I don't
    like him 'looking' at pricey dog food and thinking 'thoughts') sent him
    to Petsmart to p/some up.

    Hubby came back with TWO muscle shirts and a Bulldog Book for me!

    This...is...huge!

    Hubby did not grow up with dogs, cats or anything else, his Mom was
    OCD and didn't like animals, especially cats! When our son was 3, I
    got him an adorable mix breed puppy. We had to rehome him when we
    moved and had to rent an apartment-no pet rule! When we relocated
    again 2 years later, we moved into a house that had rats running along
    the back fence, then we started seeing baby snakes, then found one
    crawling in under doorframe...Momma got cats! No more snakes, rats,
    or squirrels, birds disappeared too
    those kittens were natural born
    killers! Hubby soon liked the cats, a couple years later a stray came up
    and was such a sweet, beautiful, loving little thing, he finally gave into
    real love for an animal...she is now 12 and long the, Diva of our house!

    Cut to 6 weeks ago- I drove 4 hours to p/up Mr Brutie-not the puppy I
    wanted, for my 1st bully and NOT the breed Hubby wanted at all, he'd
    heard the horror stories and knew 1st hand the $$$ spent on Kristi's 5
    y/o bully, Bruzer...she also counseled against getting one.

    Mr Brutie climbed up into my truck, settled between Mother & me and
    we started the 4 hour trip home, it was a hot (105*, index of 111*) and
    very humid day, a very long day but we made it home, Mr Brutie, nary
    a peep of protest, perfect manners & obdience.

    It's taken 6 weeks however Hubby works 2 weeks out of town to 1 week
    home and very busy when home...we're still moving in to this home.

    Hubby has never bought a dog, clothes before and I've taken in lots in our
    26 years together, a few bought & paid for, purebreds along the way.

    Yes, Mr Brutie has worked his magic within Hubby's heart.

    We are a forever family


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Oh, forgot to add, Hubby also p/up TWO shampoos, Oatmeal & Flea.
    Spent quite a little bit of money (book w/CD was $20) and not one
    word about 'the expense'.

    I've got a great Hubby!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Yep, bulldogs know how to work it. My hubby also never had an animal growing up. He thought he hated cats and now Daisy (my little brown Tabbie sleeps alongside him. When my first EB passed he cried for missing her and he's never cried for anyone before. He admitted he had never known what it was to love an animal before but it seems it has opened up a part of his heart he didn't know he had. He really loves our dogs and of course they are more than just "dogs" to us. They are our family.

    Wow, that's really huge in my eyes when they do things like this. It's these little things that go a long way. And considering the circumstances, he gets in my eyes.

    That is so great! Congrats to him for finally recognizing how beautiful that relationship can be. My hubby loves animals and bulldogs in particular but when I wanted to get Gypsy he put up a fight. I talked him into it and he was none too happy about it. After about two days, they were in love (note my signature pic. lol).

    Aww, that's true love right there Jordan still gives me crap about the bulldogs but deep down he loves em, he lets Tank sit in his lap sometimes LOL

    It's just something about bulldogs...I look at other dogs and they are thinking dog thoughts....I look at bulldogs and I know they are thinking people thoughts! That's why they win people over so quickly
