    @mom2bullies, I thought Charli was taken for? If 5 gets to be too much, send Echo this way will ya?
    I thought Charli was too but no answer so I guess no sale.... Daddy won't change his mind on baby echo... I want to name him "Echo of Courage"

    We always had many animals, especially before we had kids. We once had 3 dogs, 10 fish tanks, 3 parakeets, 1 turtle and 1 Sun Conure (parrot).

    When we had kids we slowed down on the aquariums and went down to two large ones only. Then our birds all passed on, so we were down to Baby, our English Bulldog, and our son Noah. We started traveling for Cable TV work in 2000. When Baby was stolen from us, we went animal free for two years. I did not think I could ever love another- she was my girl of 8 years. So after 2002 we still had a dog or two with us traveling- but when the kids and I came home in 2008 we filled the aquarium again, and now we have 5 bullies. Chip also has a pet turtle .

    We have loved, lost, rehomed, and had my heart broke time and time again. I will admit that every monetary mistake I have ever made in my life concerned my obsession with animals- but they are so worth it. Some people just need animals in their life, and I am one of those people.

    I think Bryce is going to have this obsession for animals too. He soooo loves the bulldogs, (he is only two). He sits in front of my computer while I am looking at EBN and each photo I look at he squeals with glee- I think it could be possible he loves bulldogs more than me!!!?

    We were in Leesburg Florida working, and we decided to come to Tucson for Christmas. So we found a local vet (Leesburg Veterinary Hospital) and boarded her there, thinking that at a vet she would be in the best hands, she was eight years old and especially since we were not familiar with the area.

    Well, about 1 week we were home out of 2, Chip woke up one morning and said to me- Call the vet. I have a bad feeling about Baby.

    So I did. They said "I am so sorry, but we lost her".

    I figured she died. Lost as in died.

    Then the next sentence came to me as even more of a shock as the first. Since I was so shocked and had not responded, I guess they felt the need to say something, so they said "We don't know HOW she got out".

    WHAT???

    I said "You mean You LOST her? YOU LOST MY DOG???!!!"

    They said yes, she chewed her way out of the kennell.

    Well, we were 2000 miles away, and sick and could do nothing. But as soon as we got back, we called many lawyers and they pretty much were not interested. Then, finally, we spoke to a lawyer who was VERY interested. Turns out he had another regular client of his have his dog got "LOST" the very same day as Baby! And this man was very old, in his 80's, and his dog was his #1 best friend- wife had passed away- and he only put his doggie in there because he was in SURGERY!!!

    Anyway, turns out the 'weekend' girl was strung out on drugs, and the two dogs (maybe more- we don't know) got 'lost' under her care. Right before Christmas. We were shocked.

    We placed several newspaper ads and even tried using e-mail (internet was not as useful as it is now back then) and put up a $2000 reward for her return. We never found her.

    It breaks my heart to this day- because even Noah, who was 3, was effected by his 'best friends' loss. And I would just cry and cry because I had no idea where she was, and if she thought we did this to her- we left her there- what if she was cold? Scared? Oh gosh, it kills me to even think about it. We put much of the blame on ourselves- and said we did not need dogs while traveling because of this. It took us two years to realize it was not our fault.

    We did get a settlement of $1500 after 2 years of dealing with it. $1000 of it went to the lawyer. But we did not care- the vet went through 2 years of questions, investigations- ect. We got calls from many supporters. Was worth it.

    The worst part is that she was stolen from us when she was a pup too. We put out rewards and flyers- the news even came to our house because they had never seen a reward for $1000 (this was when bullies costed less than $1000) and we did get her back- but we only had $985- they took it. And they came back a week later asking for the other $15.

    Boy I was so young and stupid. I should've beat her @ss right then and there. I would now. She was a %&* for even excepting the reward in the first place. Bad thing about Tucson- lots of thieves here. This is why I don't walk my dogs! And I live in a decent neighborhood. But that is where they go to steal!

    Here is a pic of Baby- she was the queen of the Sourmug look

    @desertskybulldogs Oh she has such a sweet face! That is an awful story and I cant imagine how you ever get over something like that. I am glad you guys figured out that it was NOT your fault and beating yourselves up over someone elses greed is just awful. People can be so ugly at times. Ugh....

    We just have our 2 boys, Cutty, our english bully, who will be 5 in december and mugsy, our pug, who just turned 4 in sept. Would LOVE to have more bullies one day but we are still building on our 2 legged family so the timing isnt right just yet, maybe in a couple years (unless one knocks on our door). hehe

    We have Arrow, our St. Bernard. He'll be three in a couple weeks (he was born on my birthday). Then we have Gertie and Ida, our little Bully girls. They both just turned 4 months. I also have a tank of 5 aquatic turtles. That's all. (That's enough). I agree, I can't imagine not having at least a couple dogs. I'm in Mich., visiting my best friend. She said 3 seems like so many (they don't any right now). But I can not imagine not having any dogs. We will have at least a few always.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    One - I just adopted my four year old English Bulldog and he is an absolute sweetheart. He acts as though he has always lived with us and is very at home in his new environment. He is loveable, sweet and very well behaved. I just can not understand why anyone did not want to keep such a wonderful animal as their companion!?

    It really blows me away..........
