    Even the title of this thread started me laughing and I couldn't
    wait to read y'all's replies

    Cami is no different, does her own thang at her convenience, in
    fact, I have a chair to rest in on the porch while she does her
    bidness out in the wild.

    She's getting more bold in her bossiness too, now going into the
    kitchen and BARKING at me to fetch myself in there, PRONTO, and
    fix her sumptin' to eat...omg...too funny!

    She just turned 8, we understand each other well, been thru a
    lot of bad stuff, many unwanted moves & just lots of life before
    sharing ours together, a whole lotta miles on us both. So, we do
    what pleases US and to hell with anything else

    Secretly, bulldogs delight the rebellious soul in us all and make
    us control freaks break down & laugh to be so ignored, PRICELESS!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Seriously, Joey will come when I call, just not right away, I say "Joey Come" and once only, she'll think for a moment and come to me. In no way is this a quickly executed command......nothing is with Joey
    Hahahaha!!!! Joey is such a Bulldog!! Love it!

    I am pretty sure Frith's name is actually "num-nums" because she doesn't come to any other word or phrase. She will look, but her feet do not move until the word "num-nums" is uttered. AND there better be a treat or some food involved at the end of her journey--even if it is two steps. Some days she actually has to have proof that you have her treat stick in your hand or a bowl of food ready.

    Frith does this too--and she is only 8 months. If dinner is the slightest bit late--she stands by her food container barking non stop. I swear you can tell time to the minute by this dog's stomach.

    One way without hesitation is I show her leash. All of a sudden she turns into Speedy Gonzales.

    Oh, this thread made me feel so much better! I have seriously wondered whether Castor has developed selective hearing or just a streak of stubbornness this last year...now I realise this is pretty normal bulldog behaviour.

    The other day I took Bella out to do her thing, she is only 8 months old. She farted around but finally did both her deeds. While in the process my neighbor came out and we were talking. Upon us finishing I called for her to come back in. She stood at the foot of the stairs. The furthest she would come is up 1 step, out of 10, and sit there. Not moving one muscle. She sat there no matter what I did. I went in the house for 10 minutes and came back out, still sitting in the same spot. I tried bringing out her dinner bowl, nope. It wasn't till I got her leash that she would climb the stairs and back into the house. The rest of the evening was like that also. Just wanted to do what she wanted and nothing more. I was to serve her.

    Definitely feel better. LOL

    Bella, at 19 months, Does. Not. Listen. When. Her. Name. Is. Called. It's to the point now, that, when I go downstairs (for something quick), I don't want her to follow me because her favorite game is to wait for her third-times-a-charm calls of her name. She'll go downstairs, and then I'll have to call her three times, grab a toy or food, or carry her back up the stairs. She's 45 pounds!
