    Default Couldn't be prouder of my Ellie Mae today

    Since the wife went down to her Grandmothers house today, Ellie and I had a Daddy/doggie day to go try on some harnesses. We ended up with 2 that I'll let the wife pick between, but we visited all 3 of the local pet stores where she was a hit. We even met a couple with a male EB that gave me their number if we wanted to breed her.

    But any way, we were at the last pet store that's just a little hole in the wall, desperately needs a face lift, and makes their money off of selling fish and pet accessories. My family's been going there since they've been in business and I've continued since I first started to drive. It's locally owned and the owner does things the right way and takes care of his customer. But on to Ellie. While we were there, she met several new people that she of course loved, but one almost caused me to tear up. A family walked over and asked if their little girl could pet Ellie and of course I said yes. Well the little girl, probably 2-3, appeared to have a mental or physical disability and the dad was holding her under her arms. Ellie walked right up to her, sat at her feet, and started licking her hands and with the dad's help, let her the little girl pet all over her. The grin on that child's face was something that I'll never forget. I just had to share.

    And some people wonder why I want another Bullie.. No doubt in my mind. Ms Ellie Mae you make us all proud and your friend Dublin does the same whenever she meets little ones. So sweet and gentle.

    @spork3127...this brings me to tears...but good tears.

    Bless Ellie Mae and all bulldogs who do seem to be exceptionally sensitive to these things.

    I adopted my 1st bully, an older male, Brutus, who's had several owners but has given ALL
    of himself and his endless capacity for love, just 3 & 1/2 months ago, to me & my family.

    My beloved husband, Stuart, died 1 month ago of a massive heart attack and Brutus has
    never left my side...he's snoring on the couch beside me as I post this.

    I'm disabled and caring for my Mother w/Alzheimer's and moved back to our house here, 4 hrs
    down the road where we'd just moved 6 mo's earlier for Stuart's new job. My house here needs
    extensive remodeling to be liveable (flooding problems), Mother's symptoms drastically worsened,
    my 24 yr old son started college a week after his Father's death and is stressed...bottom line, I
    haven't had the time or the space to myself to properly grieve but my bully (and my cat) FEEL my
    grief and sorrow and have not left my side this past month. They are doing their best to love and
    comfort me and you know what...it helps, it really does!

    That little girl was reached on a deeper level of understanding with Ellie Mae's gift of complete love
    and total acceptance of her.

    These things are a gift from Heaven and GOD above and help us continue to live and have hope and
    strength living in today's fallen and uncaring world.

    Thank you very much for sharing this with us, I so NEEDED this message today!

    Please give Ellie Mae a big hug & smooshy kiss from us and may GOD bless you & yours! Carol & Brutus


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    What a great story.... bulldogs, most animals, are amazing -- they have such an incredible sense of when to be gentle.

    Ellie Mae is such a sweet and beautiful baby!! I'll never forget the day I was sick in the bathroom and my Chow and Rotty came in with this worried look on their face - they stayed by my side until they knew I felt better - well actually my Chow knew I was sick, the Rotty was just a copycat LOL Not sure how sensitive Herman is Dogs are amazing!
