    Default Fun match

    There is a bulldog club about an hour and a half from me. I saw a post from them that they're having a "fun match dog show" I, of course, am going. My question is should I take Henry? It says for fun only and not to bring champion dog winners to the show. I'm not sure if it's appropriate to bring Henry to watch the show or to participate. I've never been to a dog show except to the county fair type that have the cutest, or most like your owner, or fattest, ect. I've watched on tv and love those. What do you all think? Henry is the sweetest dog ever and has no aggression so it would be safe to take him anywhere in public so that's not an issue. It's an open to anyone with an english bulldog only show. I always do this panic thing about things like this. Either I fear that it would have been fun if I would have brought him or it's a holy **** what was I thinking I don't belong here kind of thing. Anyone with anxiety understands this. My husband who has no anxiety does not. LOL This is why I'm asking my friends.

    If it was me I would go, it would be a great social event for Henry. They would be no pressure I am sure to enter or stay if it is not for you, no harm in going and seeing and leave when you want. Only one way to find out! (we often go to a bulldog day here it runs once a year, but we get to meet others and it is great for Bazza, no dog show though, but I find most people with Bulldogs love meeting others and are like minded)
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    Thank you for your thoughts. That's what I was thinking too but I get nervous. It's this terrible anxiety indecisive thing that I have. I appreciate you helping me out.

    I agree, you should go and enjoy yourself, you can always leave when you want. I'm sure Henry would love it.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Let me know if you take him and how it goes, yes anxiety is a terrible thing and no one understands unless they have experienced it, but I personally wouldn't want to go to a bulldog day without wanting with taking my Bully Bazza, and he is a great talking point !

    I go crazy when I see other Bulldogs. They're just so awesome! Henry is so funny too. He knows his kind and he's partial to them. We were the vets one time and he starts acting real weird, real happy and sniffing the door and when we went out there were two Bulldogs out there and it was like he just knew they were family. One was sweet and let him play, the other was kind of aggressive and we didn't let him play with that one. His owner was odd too and I got the impression he made him as aggressive as possible on purpose.
    Anyway, I've decided to go and take Henry with me. I love you guys! You're the best. I will let you know how it goes. It's on the 25th.

    @Roseann I see you have already made your decision to go!Good for you. I,too have terrible anxiety,which my husband could never understand,as he was the most social person-and usually had to drag me out! Now that I am alone,it is very hard for me. There is not much here-but they had a "bark in the park" last year,for any breed,and I got up the nerve to take Maude. They had some games,and a best dressed contest,etc. We did not participate,but just walked around and watched. It got very hot, so we couldn't stay too long. My girl really enjoyed it, because I know they get bored always being at home. You will enjoy,even if you don't enter and Henry will too!

    You guys are the best. I love this group and I love you all. I do know that this will be an inside event. I know Henry will have fun and I know I will too, once I get myself there. It's crazy sometimes that strangers can understand someone so well.
