Forget to tell my signs of owning a bully, lol
When I set up my bedroom, I left my mattresses on the floor so
short legged Cami can get up & down w/out me assisting her, tho
I have a gorgeous wood & iron bed frame. My sumptuous silk linens
and beautiful bedding are packed away in favor of washable cottons.
In fact, my entire house is put together around Cami's needs.
My designer clothing is never worn as I wear washable things that are
tough & durable, don't wear much of the jewelry & other accessories
I have as they are much too much for t-shirts & jeans.
Yes...my house stinks!
It's like I've changed into a different woman. And I guess I have but
my bullies, Brutus & Cami are worth it.
My 1st bully, Brutus
RIP beloved boy.
Most of you guys have covered it… the constant doggie hair, poop bags, leashes, toys & doggie beds laying around everywhere!!!
I think it goes deeper than that though… we all seem deeply moved about the fosters, hospice doggies, the strays & the fate of pit bulls especially here in the states. We have all changed… for the BETTER!!!
"What we once enjoyed and deeply loved, we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Helen Keller
RIP Wellie, Bella, Winston & Roxie
Dog hair, check, baby wipes, check, Bully slobber, check, going to Tractor Supply to get special dog food, check, concrete Bulldog statue on porch, check. Just had carpet replaced with laminate to eliminate dog smell in bedrooms.
drool rags in my pockets (next to the doo doo bags) and saying things like.... 'its ok jeans are absorbent'
Oh yeah, forgot about Tractor Supply-just there yesterday. Had a 10% off coupon-spent a fortune-got home-FORGOT to use the coupon! ARRRGGGHHHH!

How about the nightly body slam while you are in bed. Hooch does this to let me know he is there as well as lay his head on my pillow so he can snore in my ear all night. I also have Sadie my yellow lab who sleeps at the bottom of my bed completely stretched out. I sometimes wonder if they are letting me sleep in their bed. Truth be told, I wouldn't have it any other way. Shamrock13

I know I own a bulldog (or three) cos...
the one snoring the loudest... is not a person
the medicine cabinet is full of... dog medicine
there is wet wipes in every drawer... and I don't have a child
when moving the house must be... bully proof
I'll get the evil eye when moving things around or bringing new stuff into the house
the one being able to hold a grudge the longest... is not a person either
There is dog hairs on absolutely EVERYTHING
And most importantly... I know I own a bulldog cos I would do anything for them
You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.
Baby wipes in constant supply.
A drawer of medicine, etc, just for Aubie.
Everything's constantly damp from her wet drinking chin.
Nose prints on the car window and the glass storm door.
Bully stickers on my car.
My bulldog statues on any shelf are turned backwards because the thinks when anything but their bums are showing that they are real dogs.
Can't go to the bathroom or shower alone.
I've had a bulldog puppy jump in the bathtub with me and had to learn to use the shower curtain as a shield.
I usually have a bully head warmer when I'm sleeping.
The ottoman in front of the couch is constantly turned over for the hard surface.... it was for use as a coffee table/storage in our small space originally, but ever since Aubie came, it's her favorite spot to lay.... needless to say it's now hers and we don't have a table.
Toys (dog toys) litter the floor and every time I pick them up, she drags them back out.
Farts don't bother me anymore, no matter how rotten.
I can't sleep without her laying against me snoring.
I have a travel crate that stays at my work for when she comes to visit.
I have a hiding spot for big toys... the ones she goes crazy for and won't put down so we have to take them away before she passes out.
I am constantly cleaning out her water fountain... because she likes to rest her lips on the lid and rinse out her mouth with it!
Must I go on? ... LOL
