    Default Give Your Bully a BIG Hug and Kiss Right Now!

    So, I'm pretty sure Matilda has a bladder infection, so today we trekked out to the emergency vet (ours is closed Sundays and for Labor Day).

    While I waited in the lobby, there were several pet parents crying and I felt so awful that I was about to cry, too. I was so grateful that Matilda is such a happy, healthy little baby, and that we were there for something while uncomfortable, not serious. I remember when Tilly had a horrible reaction to eating a bee (she's very allergic), and I was sitting there crying, worrying. It's the worst feeling in the world and we usually don't even think of it until it happens to us.

    I just wanted to remind everyone how precious our babies are, and to cuddle them a little extra every day, and be so grateful that we have them. And please send good thoughts to all the sick and in pain pups out there and their families.

    And as for Til, we got antibiotics, we're waiting a few days for the culture, but she doesn't seem to be in pain, so I'm sure everything will be fine.

    Thank you, Holly for a great reminder, give Tilly a big,wet kiss from me & Cami.

    Don't forget to give her a dollop, daily with her food of plain, unsweetened
    yogurt and I'd also give a probiotic pill daily as long as she's taking antibiotic.

    We never know how long we have with our loved ones, in an instant it can all
    end so live each & every day as if it's your last, wear your good stuff & jewelry,
    use your best china & silverware, tell & show your loved ones how much they
    mean to you and live your best life today...not some day. GOD bless!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Yes thank you. I think Harlea is sick of me hugging her but I am still going to do it multiple times a day anyhow.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Sorry to hear about Matilda but it sounds like she will be a-o-kay with the antibiotic treatment and the all loving she's getting. Thank-you for this thread...a great reminder for us to stop and smell the roses...or in our case...stop and kiss our bullies!

    Thank you for the reminder I agree totally. I thought I love on Sheldon too much but I just always want him to know as much love as I can give him and have no doubt in his little doggy brain how much he is loved.

    Oh and I love your signature I have another signature myself that says love has a name and for me that name is Sheldon.
