    Default Finally meeting my neighbors

    An interesting turn of events took place after we got our bully less than a week ago:

    We are finally meeting our neighbors. We purchased our new house 6 months ago, and no one has really approached us. I think it's mostly the area in which we live; people tend to keep to themselves.

    However, every time I take out Sir. Remington for "pottytime; excellent", or go for a (very brief) walk, I meet someone new. They just come running over to gush over the puppy. It's amazing.

    If I knew Remi would have made me a bunch of new friends, I would have gotten him a lot sooner!

    They do draw a lot of attention! Even in the car, people will stop next to us and look in and talk to them!

    This is true. After living in my former home for 8+ years and getting Tate last year, I think I met more neighbors in 2011 than i did in all the years of living there! as David said, bullys are people magnets for sure!

    Yep it's true...and annoying. Poor Herman cant take a poop without some stranger HONKING their horn! Some just honk and stare (I'll wave but they do nothing), some pull over and stop traffic. It was cute the first two days, but now......

    It never fails, everyone asks "is that an english bulldog?" or "is that a regular bulldog?" - then we hear about all the dogs they own in the past. But the one good thing is since everyone knows our bullies in the neighborhood, we should all be lucky that they all know our bullies in case they get lost.

    Wait until you take him to Petsmart, I am in there for hours when I have Vegas!! People just gravitate towards him and of course he loves it.

    Met another one this morning. Mortified because I hadn't showered and my pixie cut was sticking all which way. Augh! Can't we pee and poop in peace?! Did go to a local pet food place and the amount of attention he got by both humans and animals alike was rather entertaining.

    Same here, wherever me and Maggie go she gets a ton of attention. Yesterday I was walking her and a passing stranger in a car waved most definitely at her and not me lol. I guess you get used to it after a while, if your single its probably a great way to meet someone!
