    Zoey, at 3 yrs old, was dropped off at a Vet practice with orders to put here down. Supposedly she had been throwing up and passing only "soft serve" stools for several weeks. Owners stated that she had bad knees too. The Vet asked them if they would surrender to rescue. Enter OTR and now my wife, Sandy. She had the vet do a barium study on her digestive tract which came back unremarkable. Vet had no easy answer to her condition and Zoey was very weak and thin and did have a bad set of rear wheels...but not knees, t'was hip dispalsia.

    Sandy took her home and decided to give her a few days and see what happens before making the decision to test more or put her down. The next morning Zoey was outside trying to poop with Sandy watching closely. She, Zoey, would assume the position and then take a few steps and then assume poop position again...perhaps 10 times this went on.
    Finally, Sandy notices something protruding from Zoey's backsides. She grabbed her car keys(in case of emergency) and a few paper towels and gets ahold of the foreign object making its way out. Slowly and patiently she gives gentle pressure to what turned out to be a 2' long piece of 1/2" rope. WTH?! A few days later Zoey is gaining weight and a couple of months after that she has bilateral FHO surgery. Two months after that I adopt her. Nine months after that I marry Sandy.
    Win, win, win, win...


    Some people are just so undeserving of having a bulldog. I'm glad you stepped in.

    I learned his ball size limit yesterday when he almost choked on a ball. 2.5" is too small, I should have gone by my gut but I got it on Amazon. Next time I will know better; he is fine and it is going back. I'm so glad we are so vigilant with new toys. He was fine with it for about 2 weeks.

    the most durable ball we've given has been a Lacrosse ball. Over 3" and super tough.

    Mabel has never swallowed anything she shouldn't, but I had a boxer who ate an entire box of fluorescent crayons. We had brightly-colored rainbows in our yard for about a week.

    I'm terrified of Betty swallowing something she shouldn't. She swallowed one of those small ankle socks when we first got her, but luckily she puked it up and was fine (we didn't even realise she had swallowed it until it came back up!). Now all socks are on lock down!

    I always make sure there are no "eatables" within reach. One day Maude threw up a winter glove, and I have no clue where she found it/didn't even know she swallowed it! That was a lucky day! Bad Mommy!

    Oliver ate an orange rubber ball, about 3" in diameter. We have no idea where it came from or how he got it, but about 2 weeks after bringing him home, he threw it up. My husband now refers to him as "our terrible magician".

    Tyson ate 3 of my husbands no show socks. He was able to vomit 2 of them, but the 3rd had to be surgically removed Our floors now are spotless, you won't find anything remotely edible in his range.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

This was all for app 3 days Emergency vet costs or would have been I was lucky My vet loves this big goof as much as I do , as you can see so did Diva she loved Odin would not leave his side other then to do outies and eat .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    I put down that comfy rubber mat that you find at gyms in squares. Well before I could get it all glued down for safety they both chewed and ate the end cover strip... Some got thrown up and the rest came out in the poop. And then they got another type of rubber mat, but just a little. Pooped out... I have moon mat glued down in their room. Not as nice and comfy as the rubber mat.. But after a month picking up poo checking for rubber they will have to make do. Vader is the chewer, Reya not so much, but if he has something going to town on, she feels obligated to join in. Oh well. I keep an eye on them and make sure there is nothing on the floor for them to chew other than there toys.
