    Default Vet Visit

    Moses got his health check at the vet today and they said everything looks good He weighed in at 16 pounds... I'm not sure what the normal weight is suppose to be at 10 weeks, but I suspect that he isn't underweight.

    It caught me by surprise though how much attention a baby Bully draws in public... it really did catch my wife and I off guard. As soon as we get out of the car, some people walking out of the Sushi place stops us to look at him and ask questions, and it was almost like they wasn't going to let me pass... I had to tell them that I was late for his appointment to get by them. Once inside, a couple ladies spotted him walking by the clinic and came in and clamored all over him. I then noticed a lady delivering a bunch of papers to the clinic sneak a photo of him with her phone. Then Moe had a good time exploring the clinic.

    We finally got called in to see the Doc... Winnie was first as they had to remove stitches from her surgery (spading), and while they were working on her, they were giggling at Moe because he had curled up and fell asleep snoring.

    When it was Moe's turn he snapped into action because they had treats... he had no idea that he even received a shot because he was so focused on the treats.

    When all was done, we couldn't just leave because all the clinic assistants wanted their picture taken with Moe. Moe and I didn't mind because they were cute, but I caught Peggy rolling her eyes. I made the mistake of calling him a Chick Magnet, and now Peggy doesn't want me to take him on outings without her

    So glad to hear that he's one healthy pup. Not sure what the average weight is, but Moe looks quite good for his size ... baby-fat and all.

    lol. Yup, they're quite the attention getter, even from guys. So if I were you, I wouldn't let your wife take him out without you as well.

    That was the wrong thing to say..now I have to make sure hubby isn't off taking Belly to the park by himself Glad Moe got a clean bill of health! Our Belly is a lightweight...we just got back from the vet this evening and she's 16 lbs at 12 weeks. Moe is just the cutest with all those wrinkles!

    Weeeeeeeeell, 6 years later, from Duke's first vet visit and..........most people still love seeing him. Some are intimidated because of his size, but when he sits and gives them his full smile.......they all want to pet him.

    So glad everything is going great so far!!! They are people magnets period. I can't take Bear out anywhere without him getting all the attention, especially the vets because they announce a bulldog is there and all the techs and doctors come see him. You'd think people have never seen a bulldog before!!!
    I didn't do it

    How fun! I missed out on the puppy attention since we got Cutty at 9 months BUT he sure draws people to him everywhere he goes now so I have a feeling you will just get used to his stardom.

    Bulldogs just draw a crowd everywhere they go! It's more so when they're puppies, I think. But even around here, where there's no shortage of EBs they always get noticed. Between our gigantic Arrow and the girls, we can't go anywhere without the dogs getting plenty of attention!

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

    Glad Moe's first vet visit was on a positive plane.
    That's what I don't understand; Bullies are now #6 in popularity and you hardly ever see any and everyone acts like they have never seen one when you take them anywhere... Where ARE all these bullies that put them into 6th in popularity???

    You guys are so right! Why is it they draw everyone to them? I am glad, I am a single grandma in Ohio and it sure is fun to go meet people at the park when I walk her. You don't have to walk far or fast as people will come to you.

    I miss the puppy days though. Lola is a lot of fun at one year but it was so special when I first got her. I guess it is like a newborn human. It is so fun to have this site, my first day and I am having all sorts of fun. Even figured out how to do the avatar. I am hip now!!!

    Glad you had a great visit. I am not surprised you (or Moe is) getting all the attention. They are so darn cute and in Hawaii, being rare in in-frequent, he stands out. My son loves to take Bella out to the beach and to his wake board competitions, he gets all the girls hanging on him.

    Always with me

    never again will you be left looking for attention. Moe will attract attention wherever you go. Not even a simple disguise will throw off the gawkers. As long as you can handle the stardom without showing a bit of jealousy....you and Moe CAN have a healthy relationship.
