    Default Flying monkey!

    Does anyone else's bullies think they are flying monkeys?? Ulysses can get so hyper that he forgets he is a dog, a heavy dog at that. He would fly between couches and even flies towards me when im about 6 ft away. He lands on his feet but sometimes it makes me so nervous that he will land the wrong way. All it takes to calm him down are belly rubs but he needs to jump all around first. Bullies are suppose to be subdued..granted he is still a puppy, but is this normal??

    Yep. We hoped to get a cowardly lion Bulldog but what we got is the flying monkey. He jumps from couches, chairs and even the table top of park benches. He also likes to barrel down short flights of steps. I'm praying he grows out of this. He'll be one 1 next week.
    He's actually walking with a limp this morning so I'm keeping him off the couch and bed so he can't jump off. I swear they don't know they are Bulldogs.

    If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.

    Just this morning he landed somewhat head first. He stopped a little and i almost cried but then he kept going like it was no big deal. Thanks for the replies, i really wasnt sure that this was normal. Im waiting for him to grow out of it too. Right now with all the scare, ill take a Mack anytime..lol

    All my Bullies have done what I call 'spaz attacks' and they basically just ran all over at full throttle up the steps, down the steps in circles, up on furniture around the kitchen island..... zooooooomm !!! It is like sudden burst of energy that they just have to get rid of

    We usually refer to Brutus as a flying squirrel. I panic all the time that is going to hurt his legs. He has no fear.
