    I have never met a bulldog that doesn't love everyone and the attention it brings them My little Diesel is a total mommies boy and he is somewhat stand-offish with strangers but will let them pet him as long as I am close by ... My female Molly I use to think would wander off with anyone that showed her attention as she loves everyone, but I found out later that petting is as far as she will let them go once a stranger tried to pick her up, she peed all over them she ran back to me as fast as her short little legs could carry her. Guard dogs they are not mine would probably invite a robber in and show them where I keep the good stuff but if they think I'm being hurt they get all protective in their own little way.
    I suffer from "M.B.S." (Multiple Bulldog Syndrome)
    because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!

    When we have friends at our house, he gets so obsessed with them and just acts like me and my husband aren't even there! I think he just likes new people/things because if we have a few people over, it's always the last person to get there that he will be obsessed with and not leave alone.

    He does get excited to see us and want to play with us, but a lot of the time when it's just us, he will want to do his own thing too. But if other people are there he doesn't calm down and leave them alone until they're gone. It doesn't bother me, I figure he sees us so much and just likes getting attention from new and different people.

    Thank you Michele! It is true, Maruko gets obsessed with the last person she meets! You are right, she probably gets so used to us and wants extra love from different people : )

    wow very protective! I just got mine for one month, I figured it still needs time for her to learn how to listen to me. It's so interesting to read different reactions of everyone's bulldogs! Thank you!

She has always been like that.... she hates when the elevator door opens and people come out... it scares her!
    That is so funny and cute: ) I'm picturing her reaction as the elevator door opens!

    Good to know I'm not alone, I always get home first, she would wiggle when I opens the crate, but as soon as she gets out, she goes straight to her water bowl, after that she is just calm. Never kisses to me. But when my fiance later returns she gets very excited!

    hahaha

    They would probably welcome the burglar and runaway!! A bit sad to know this tho, it's a lot of love and time devoted to take care of bullies, I know for sure she loves me, but I guess love couldn't be equalized. She brought so much happiness into this family already! I'm obsessed to my bully : )

    Maruko just finished her shots, so she just started to go out and meet human and other dogs : ) I guess everything is so new she gets overly excited and curious. I just need to get used to her behavior I guess

    Both mine love any attention and duchess actually walks up to strangers and tries nudging them until they pet her- she especially does this on the elevators in my building
