    Default New here,and new to Bulldogs.

    Hello my name is Brian. I'm from Arkansas and about
    to pick up my first Bulldog. I have never had a Bulldog
    of any kind before but am very excited to get her. I had
    a Great Dane for years and years. He traveled with me
    everywhere I went. Last winter he got sick and passed
    away. I was heart broken and didn't want another dog.

    But the more I travel the more I miss the companionship.
    I have always loved bulldogs just never really though about
    owning one. My wife was going to buy me one a few months
    ago and I said no. So after months of her putting these adorable
    pictures in front of me I finally gave in. Now I'm like a 33 year
    old kid waiting on Christmas.

    I will be picking Jozi up Thursday evening and can't wait. Like
    my Great Dane before she will be going everywhere with me. I
    travel for work and can't wait for the company. It has been kinda
    stressful getting ready for another dog. But exciting at the same
    time.

    Like most others have found its overwhelming the difference of
    opinions on dog food. I had almost settled on Canidae then I read
    somewhere that its quality had gone down. So now I'm looking
    at Natures Variety, Instinct. I'm still up in the air about this one.
    The breeder has her on Iams Puppy food. I will buy that for her
    the firstround then after she has settled in to her new home transition
    her over to her new food. Don't wanna trow everything on her at once.

    Anyway I still have a little bit to hash all that out. Just wanted to stop in
    and say hello. I'll attach a pic of her on here too. I CAN"T WAIT!!

    She is lovely!!! Good idea to wait a little while before you switch. Just remember to do it slowly when you do and she will do fine. I love her black mask. We are very excited for you here, and if you have any questions at all, just ask.

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    Welcome Brian and Jozi! She is a precious, beautiful girl, so excited for you. I know you will love having her traveling with you. I feed my girls Nature's Variety Prairie, and they love it.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Oh my goodness she is just adorable!! I too love the black mask..I just had to call my husband over to show him her with those black eyes!!! I had to do the food changeover too..wasn't easy..and I did it too fast and it didn't work out too well We do Avoderm and are happy with it. Blue Buffalo food he didn't tolerate too well..but does well on their treats. Crazy. But anyway..welcome and what a cutie!!
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    Oh my gosh how adorabull is she?!?! Congrats on your new baby, almost. Once you bring her home you will wonder why you waited for so long before now. Sorry to hear about your great dane but this pup will help fill that hole in your heart I guarantee. Bullys are good at that. Welcome to the board also! We love pics and I am willing to bet that having a new pup you will be taking a LOT!

    Wanted to add that changing to a high quality food is a good thing to do before the allergies start because it will save from vet visits, usually, i've had no problems with allergies, just tear stains. I switched Bear to Avoderm Puppy when I got him which was excellent but the Fromm Surf n Turf helps tremendously with the tear stains.
