    When Jackson was young, we had him neutered and his dewclaws removed (they grew funny and were causing problems). A day or two after his surgeries we took him to Petland, to get something for him. I was carrying him around with his cone on and his front legs all bandaged when a family came up to me and asked me what had happened. I told them that he had tried to commit suicide, and that was why he was all bandaged up. I waited for them to say "really?" or "no way", but they completely believed me!!! I heard them later discussing how sad it was with some other customers as I walked around the store.

    I kissed a Bulldog and I loved it.....there is nothing better in this world than a Senior Bulldog.

    Geeze what is wrong with people?! I was raised that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    I'm glad I can read you guys' stories and prepare for the stupid but also sometimes kind things people will say about my sweet June.

    I also hope I can keep my mouth shut if someone says something mean about her... But no promises!

But there was Mabel in her pink harness, pink leash, and pink bandanna. The woman asked, "So what is his name?" I must have confused her then, because I answered, "HIS name is Mabel." I think she is a few fries short of a Happy Meal.
    Oh now that is funny

    Good on her for sticking up for her bullie siblings 😃

    This is one of the best comments I have ever read! I hate it when people say they think my bully is ugly. I always smile and say everyone is entitled to their own opinion. When in my head I am thinking you not all that cute yourself or why are you asking if you can pet him? SMH

    So we moved into our new house about 11 months ago and there was this car that would drive by pretty often... first it was a mom, then mom and son, then mom, son and daughter, then mom, son daughter and dad. They stopped at the end of our driveway and we asking the most off the wall questions 1. Is he home by himself a lot? ( I said no thinking why are you planning on stealing our dog 2. How long can they be kenneled before they need to go outside like 11 hours? 3. Why do they have such squished faces? 4. Why do they breath like that? Then she proceeds to tell us that they are thinking about getting one! WTH I told her to make sure that they did research because this isn't a take me home and I am good kind of breed.

    Mack always gets really positive attention wherever we go, I really think if someone ever walked up to us and told me he was ugly I woukdnt be abke to prevent "you are too" or "and he still is cuter than you" from coming out of my mouth haha, wonder what they would say!

    I really don't know what I would say if someone told me my baby was ugly. Probably in my most Southern Belle accent "Momma taught me if I couldn't say something nice I shouldn't say anything at all, in your case though I'll make an exception, because he certainly seems to be nicer than you I don't see him walking around giving his unsolicited opinion on your looks which I am sure in his eyes must not be very handsome either.

I asked her if she even knew what a pug looks like and all she could say was not like what you are holding. My reply was you're right a pug does look different than my bany because she is an English Bulldog. She replied that she had never heard of the breed and it must be some new cross. I just shook my head and right then my wife blurted out lady why don't you go down isle 6 where all the books are and look at the first one on letf and them proceed to /faceplam youself because you ma'ma are a moron to the 100th degree. The lady got a look of horror on her face as all the cashiers and other customers start laughing at her. Some people....
    Some people just need a high five! In the face. With the "EB manual" all our babies supposedly come with!

    Tried to branch out on fb, joined an EB group. Apparently everyone's an expert. NOT LIKE HERE!! Like some real bonafide card carryin' experts. Girl the other day says that she thinks her bully is too small at 8 (I think) months and 40#. But the vet says he's happy, healthy, etc... Now down here in the south I'm no expert... But if my vet says he's healthy and I trust my vet...

    So anyway I tell her that I think he's beautiful. A lady comments and said that she needs to read the manual an STANDARD EB size is this that and the other. Totally rude, IMO and Dexter didn't come with a manual (til I found here at least) THEN, to put the cherry on top, the next EXPERT says, "don't forget there are different breeds of EB."
    And it's just too hot down here for me to be worried about all the different possible breeds of the EB. Far as I knew, EB is EB....
