    1st bulldog ... Attitudee ... I paid for her before she was ever conceived and told the breeder that I wanted a female bulldog with a brindle body and a white face. Though it was a rough first experience with bulldogs I was completely hooked on the breed!!

    2nd bulldog ... Madison ... I saw a picture of her and I knew in my heart she was meant to be my dog, I did a co-ownership with her and after a visit with my GodSon she fell in love with the kids and when she came home after her weekend visit (they babysat while I was out of town) she wouldn't eat wouldn't sleep just paced around crying so the breeder and I made the decision to let her stay with my friend and her family. She came back to me several years later, turned out my so called friend wasn't a friend after all and my poor Madison was tossed away like yesterdays garbage but she came home to me and spent the rest of her life being cherished and spoiled in the home she truly belonged in!!

    3rd bulldog ... Diesel ... Diesel is a baby born to Madison in her first litter, he has weak hips and at the time wasn't able to walk well the breeder asked if I knew of anyone who wanted a special needs bulldog (she really meant, did I want to take him because she knew I was the one who would take the best care of him) I said he belonged with me and she said well that is really what I meant. Diesel came home with me and is so strong and healthy now and is the love of my life and first male bulldog or dog of any breed that I've ever owned.

    4th bulldog ... Molly ... I was offered a retired show dog named Lilly after my Attitudee passed away and I was set to go and meet her and introduce her to Diesel to see how they got along, she was beautiful and so loving with me but she wouldn't let Diesel near me and that was a deal breaker for sure. I was babysitting at the breeders house while she was a show and she has this silly little 9 month old female that played really well with Diesel and one day stupid me let two of her females out that decided they wanted to fight, I was trying to stop the fight and keep them from getting injured and that sweet little puppy closed her eyes and put her little body between me and the two fighting females trying to protect me and it was then I knew that she was suppose to be my girl. I left that weekend with Diesel and Molly as my two babies

    because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!

    I had a screen saver of a Bulldog and I thought I would love to have that kind of breed, so I looked on the web site for English Bulldogs, and found a breeder, Thank Goodness I choose the right breeder. Elmo had not been on the internet Rosie said but about 30 min. when I called Rosie and said I want to adopt your Beautiful Boy, his name was then Casper. I did not think he looked like a Casper, so I named him after my favorite character on Sesame Street. I choose Elmo because he looked so special to me, big feet, he was all white, except one brown spot on his cheek and ear, and his little mouth the way he was posing looked like a round cherio would fit inside it. It really did not matter if I adopted a boy or girl, I fell in Love with Elmo, My Little Man. Oh How I
    My Elmo.

    We decided that we wanted to get a dog. We looked at all kinds of dogs, especially at rescues and adoption events. But my husband had his heart set on a bulldog, and drooled over bulldog puppies for nearly a year.

    We found our breeder because a friend had gotten a pup from her not too long before we had finally saved enough to pay for a bulldog puppy.

    After drooling over the photos of her available puppies, we chose our little Winston.

    As much of a pain in the backside as he is, he is perfect and I love him and I do crazy things just to make him happy because it makes me happy to see him that way. I know you all understand.

    I have always thought that I wasn't a dog person. They were ok but that was it. Hubby was wanting a dog so he would research breeds and show me pictures. Most of the time I was uninterested. Then he started with the bulldog pictures and they were so dang cute! I told him we could have one BUT I wasn't going to take care if it. I wasn't going to deprive my family of a dog. He kept looking until we found some advertised that looked like what we wanted. I contacted the breeder and was told that the mom was a family pet. We arranged to meet on Christmas Eve. I thought we were going to their home. Turns out we met in a parking lot. (Yes, another one of those stories) He had 3 puppies, all male. One had a hairlip and the other 2 were normal. I went crazy! I loved Henry from the second I seen him. My husband and daughter picked him also. It was unanimous! We bought him and that's how it started. Hubby assumed the new would wear off and I'd go back to not being a dog lover. It's not happened yet. He's now 7 months and I love him dearly. So far he's been a very healthy pup. I pray the people we got him from were honest. I had no idea until I found this site that we may have made a huge mistake. I don't think I could go back to life without a bulldog. He's so affectionate and I soak it up.
