    I have two Coolaroos and my dogs love them. I haven't had a dog who didn't love them!

    Ack.. Im slacking!! (Dang High School football taking all my time!!)

    Double picture to make up for yesterday..

    Molly (Kevin's Mom) when she was a puppy.. You always hear how laid back English Bulldogs are. But then you bring one home and OMG you find out they are crazy obnoxious! We'll.. At close to 3 years old i can finally say that Molly is mellowing out. She enjoy's long naps during the day with small breaks of destructive frenzy when she's awake (before it was destruction 24/7).



    If Molly is a stick of dynamite (quick explosion.. then a bit of silence) then Kevin is a slow wrecking ball (slower going.. but non stoppable destruction). When he starts playing the furniture ends up rearranged.

    (Kevin is the one facing right)



    We have a big party at the house this weekend (Collage Football.. not Dog related).. but i think Kevin will find a way to crash it

    Well.. I totally messed up the countdown. I got super busy and wasn't able to post all the pictures i took in the past week (i'll play catch-up in a bit)..

    However..

    TODAY IS KEVIN'S BIRTHDAY!!! (@ 6:15pm Oct 29th 2013)

    Here is a quote from a post i made last year describing how Kevin came to this earth...

    My very first post on this forum talked about how hard it was for me to 'buy' a purebred dog. Having worked with rescue shelters and fostering 'unwanted' dogs for the past 20 years it was a very hard thing to do. In the end we found a responsible breeder and Molly ended up in our lives.

    Flash forward a year and a few of my wife's friends decide they want an EB (Molly is a good sales girl). We had just finished fostering a 3 month old lab puppy... and i'll admit i had a bad case of puppy want after he left for his new home (he was with us for 6 weeks).

    The breeder we got molly from was taking a break and all we found in the classifieds were scams and puppy mills. I couldn't find a male bulldog within a few hundred miles i was willing to 'adopt' and my wife's friends were frustrated with their own EB search..

    Flash forward another year..

    So my wife came up with her crazy plan to breed Molly (i know for a fact i said 'hellz no!'.. but i'm not the head of our pack). The puppy owners were lined up (the 'friends of friends' were thoroughly screened).. ancestry checked of both Molly and the baby daddy.. Vet visits to check health.. Volunteers lined up to help (two experienced breeders, two vets and a vet tech).. then wham-bam-thank-you-walter.. Molly is pregnant.

    My wife watched Molly's pregnancy as a miracle of life.. I watched it in pure terror (is she in pain, are the puppies going to be ok, is she eating right.. etc)

    .. and to top everything off.. Molly went into labor 2 days before her scheduled C-Section.. after the vet had closed.. and my wife was at a work reception.

    Terror... Panic.. i cant think of the words that described that night. Two hours after yelling at the vet to get his a$$ back into that office i was handed a basket of newborn guinea pigs and was sent home.. to which my wife was still not back yet. (Lets just say my daughter is going to have a great Christmas for having to put up with how crazy i was)

    I remember calling in the troops.. people showed up with formula and bottles.. i like to think i handled it all smashingly.. but in truth i just blacked out.. then my wife showed up and i passed out.

    When Molly got home the next morning i was amazed at how fast she turned into mommy mode. She slept through the berth of her puppies but somehow she knew they where hers. She was gentle, loving and was never more then 3 feet from them for the first few days.

    .. and then there was little Dotty... She wouldn't eat and always cried. The hours we spend bottle feeding her while the rest nursed.. the days we held her in a blanket trying to comfort her.. then when the vet said there was nothing more to be done.. she was only with us for a few days but her death hit me like the passing of every dog i've ever had. Her time was short but she was loved.

    One of our friends who breeds and shows German Shepherd's told us Molly's pregnancy would either "Scramble her brains or set her straight!".. Molly went from being a crazy goofball to a tender mom. It breaks my heart to see how skinny she is now having given everything she has to her puppies. Her weight is slowly coming back and the vet's say she's in great health... but its hard to think of what we put her through.

    As of today.. the puppies have been picked.. there isn't a night that a family doesn't come over to snuggle with their new member... and Molly sits and watches. Part of me thinks she's saying "TAKE IT HOME NOW!!!".. and part of me thinks she'll miss them. Luckily most will be only a few blocks away and play dates are already planned.

    At Thanksgiving my father-in-law was kind enough to add up how much money this adventure has cost us. I like to think that it was all worth it..

    I paid myself for a cute little EB boy that i know came from a good family.. and as an extra bonus 4 other homes get blessed with a new member. Thats 5 puppies that didn't help support the puppy mill cycle.

    It is also something we will NEVER DO AGAIN!! And i would recommend people to NEVER DO IT. It was probably the hardest thing I've ever done.. and i basically just watched!
    Happy Birthday Big Boy!!!
