    Talking Bulldogs & Their Schedules

    Brutus has always been on the same schedule, except on weekends which he still keeps pretty close to. That is until Thanksgiving. We had six days off for Thanksgiving, three of which were spent @ my parents house with Brutus and Marlee playing w/ the other dogs. The other three back at home, but only sleeping in his crate at night. I honestly think Brutus was ready for us to come back to work today Yesterday he started pouting and acting grouchy like I'm suppose to be sleeping right now, it's Monday Mom Geeze! Do any of your bullys have a change in attitude when their schedule is off?

    Of course I can't post a new thread w/ out some pictures too

    Brutus REACHING for his toy, right before he realized hey I CAN jump on the couch!

    I think bullies are very regimentated creatures. Any time there schedule is thown off they arent sure what to do.
    Thanx so much for all the pix. We always love seeing bully pix here.
    Brutus sure is a cutie patootie!!!

    Thank you, we think he's the cutest in our dog family! Hehe

    He was not a happy camper last night. I think he enjoys his "me" time while we are at work. When we got up this morning, and back to our normal schedule he was playful and ready to go. He even took out our oldest JRT with a head butt!

    Love the pics and of course Brutus is just as cute as can be . I think bullies are so hard to "read" and that is why there are the misconceptions about them. Just when you think you know what is going on they surprise you with something different. We might have the opposite situation. We work from home so Dublin expects us to be around, but when we have to go out on appointments she gets very upset if we don't bring her. She loves changes to her schedule and would ride around in the car with us forever. We have taken her everywhere we can from day one so now she "expects" it. The only time she likes to be on her own is when she is sleeping... and even then she likes to know someone is around....

    Oh he loves to go on car rides w/ us, or visit anywhere we take him. I use to bring him to work with me when he was smaller when my boss was out of town [replacer_img] He was so good, he only played in my office, and wouldn't walk out till I told him let's go. I wish I could bring him everyday. You are so right, they can be hard to read at times. Typically if I don't give him what he wants he goes and sits by the doggy door with his back to me and pouts! I think yesterday he was just really tired from all of the festivities. I did get a little concerned something was wrong, but he would play when I brought his toys to him and antagonized him

    Bacon was the same way on Sunday after three days at my in-laws. He just wanted to sleep all day long, but we basically figured he was overtired since he normally is asleep all day and was up from 9am until bedtime for three days straight he was exhausted.

    Mine are like that too..... my hubby has 1-2 days off a week, and although most of my work days remain the same when it comes to Fridays, Sats and Sundays I can either be working a lot or be off a lot of those three days. On the occasions when both of our schedules have meant that one or both of us are at home for a long time for a few days at a time you can tell we've messed up their schedule. I've found that when we are home they just don't sleep, because they are moving around the house with you and listening because they don't want to miss out on anything!!! Then it gets to day 3 or day 4 and they start to give us these looks as if to say ............ " Go back to work already ........I'm exhausted ... I .. WANT .. TO ... SLEEP ..... "
