    Bogey never cuddled as a really young pup. He started being a lap dog at about 6 months. Prior to that, if we brought him up on the couch, he used our arms, or whatever body part was exposed, as a chew toy! Then, at about 6 months, he started appreciating the invite up on the couch. He is still very active, but when he is tired, (which is more frequent now), he is a total lap dog- his head HAS to be touching us somewhere!!

    well i didnt get sarah till she was one so not sure about before then but i think she started to slow down at about age 3 or so. she still walked and played just not as much as she was and now she doesnt really play at all or eat her bones anymore. she will go outside and walk around and sometimes come walking with me if its cool. sarah has never been a snuggler really but will lay her head on me and will lay close sometimes to be near me but dont try to hold her or kiss her lol she will turn away.

    Mabel is anywhere from 4 to 6 years old, depending on the information you are viewing at any particular time. She has NEVER been more than a couch potato. We had surgery to repair an almost closed airway, which helped, but she's still pretty content to nap most of the day. We have little spurts of energy every now and then, but this girl knows how to chill!

    Nitschke was born lazy... we got him at 6 months and he was the same up to the day he past at 7 yrs old. Banks is just short of 8 yrs old and she is still NOT lazy, we can take her for long walks, play for hour or more and she will go get a drink and come back for more. we have to monitor everything with her as she will not stop still she drops.

    Daddy was just starting to chill .. he was about 18 months ... and then we got Linus so he reverted back to being a few months old again. His energy level matched Linus 100%

    Now Linus started to calm down a bit ... probably from about the time he was 18 months too. So Daddy is reverting back to being a more laid back bully. However, I have found that if they both go outside together, as in through the door at the same time that they are over-excited and run around like they think they're greyhounds!! If I let them out one at a time with a few moments gap in between they are not so crazy. So they are both still capable of getting themselves all riled up and bouncy!!!

    Bella was our rescue, so no idea what she was like when she was younger. She is now four and just wants to snuggle and cuddle on the couch.

    Chance only started cuddling a lot in the last 6 months or so. Usually if one of us is on the couch (watching tv, reading, playing video games) he'll come up and sprawl next to us. If I'm on the couch, sometimes he'll come and tuck into me. Most of the time though he hates to share the couch with two people and seems pretty annoyed that we aren't out doing something. Case in point, last night he walked for 3 hours or so, ran in the water, chased sticks...then came home and wanted to play tug. Cuddling? What cuddling? (He's 2.5yrs.)

    Well.... Til played outside for about 30 minutes total all day (part of that being a walk) and she is passed out. If I leave, no matter how long I am gone, she will be in the same position as when I left. haha she's turning 1 year old (woohoo) on the 14th!

    She's super cuddly too now. At first, she was little biting terror and I thought I'd never get bullie snuggles, but maybe around 5-6 months, she calmed waaay down, and even more so now.

    Walter is 14 months and is both a wild man and a snuggle bug. At about 10 months he started to chill a little bit and was more content playing on his own and not needing constant attention. One day it just clicked. He still loves long walks and rough housing been anytime he is ready for a nap he climbs up on your lap.

    Theres nothing better than a bulldog snoring on your lap!

    from the looks of it every bully is different. Some of them turn into lap dogs, and some just never do. Guess time will only tell if Butters will remain active or "chill-out". Its fun to hear about everyones bully and how different they are and how they may have transitioned.
