    Daisy Mae had a life threatening reaction to her vaccines at 4 months. Watching her going through that was awful. She's been healthy since but no vaccines ever again so we have to live with the fear of catching something for the rest of her life. We can't hide in the house but at least no dog parks for her. I just hope to make her life the best it can be and we get to enjoy many many years together.

    Exactly. No matter what you're doing he's always between your legs and it's so easy to trip over him

    The hardest thing about owning an English Bulldog for me . . . having to leave them at home. I miss these silly little guys when I'm away. It took me a while to convince my wife we needed to spend over two dollars a pound for dog food, but since we have switched to Blue Buffalo, the Bullies are much happier and health problems have disappeared. We are blessed with having dogs from a good breeding line.

    This could have been said I scanned through but here is my thought on the matter. Most people come to ebn because there is something unusual about their bully happening most of the time there is a health problem. But think about it this way when you buy a bed and you love the bed you don't really make mention of the level of happiness when you buy a bed and it sucks you tell everyone. What I am getting at is there are probably hundreds even thousands of bully owners that never get to ebn because they never have a problem. (Sorry if the bed reference was insensitive it was the best comparison I had at the moment) there are plenty of breed related problems with a lot of other dog if the dog seems to be happy and loving life let them live and be a happy bully if they are not doing well and grave no need to be selfish

    So far (knock on wood) we have had a pretty good run with Raven. She has cherry eye and has had a pulled muscle here and there because she is a dynamo. I honestly feel that no matter what I have to deal with I can because to avoid it would be to not have ever had my spunky monkey. She is worth every bit of the fear and anxiety I feel at times. As much as we want to avoid issues it's always a crap shoot. The best I can do is to feed her the best that I can, love her to bits and enjoy every day that she is a part of our lives, the rest is in God's hands. My life is so much richer for having her and no matter what the future may hold health wise for her I will never ever fear or regret welcoming her into our family. Sometimes I remember that bullies have a shorter span that a lot of other dogs and it throws me in a bit of a spin, but I do my best to dial it back and live for the moment and enjoy every one of her silly antics.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.
