    Default Boy or girl bully - why did you choose one over the other?

    My bf and I had a choice between a boy or a girl because they were the last two with the breeder. I didn't have a preference but my bf wanted a boy because he thought they'd be easier to take care of. Not sure if that's true but we should've picked up the other one too. D'oh! lol.

    We always chose the males...Due to my husband wanting a "larger" framed bulldog. And the male fits the bill...He actually only had male dogs growing up so it was his preference to have male dogs. Our getting a third dog was not only a HUGE step. Not only did we go with a breed I had only researched but never had personal experience. But she's a female...Which made him nervous...but she's our "Baby Girl"...and we have not regretted having her one bit.

    SHhhh don't tell anyone...BUT...my bulldog lovin' husband actually tells folk. That out of all the dogs he's ever had...Ahsoka [Our Australian Shepherd] he's more attached to.

    This coming from a man who has an entire collection of bulldog items over 400 at least! Who fought me tooth and nail over getting her...And now he's always apologizing for being the way he was about getting her...and that he loves her so much.

    We have always had male Bulldogs and when we went to look at Mack's litter he picked us. All of the babies came to check us out then went on with their business; Mack stayed right by us the whole time we were there. Like I said, he picked us!

    Sherman (Bulldog # 1), was supposed to be a female, but when I was sitting in the grass with the puppies he spent the most time with me and there was something about the way he licked my toes...instant bond!

    Ruggles was from a litter of 2 and the breeder kept his sister!

    Lari didn't want a humping male dog! LOL She had many dogs and always preferred females. I didn't care one way or the other because I had no dog experience. I wasn't even sure I wanted a dog.. (boy how things change). So we got a female that only humps Lari...

    My previous dog was female, our Shih Tzu is female, our cat is female and my wife is female ... So the Bulldog was suppose to be soley my pick of breed and sex, so I guess I figured we needed some more testosterone in the house to balance things

    That's too funny! I used to tell my husband it's a good thing I don't like change.

    [At the time we only had two bulldogs] 2 skin kids...2 bulldogs...2 ornate turtles...2 chinchillas. It's a good thing I don't like change...or I would be working on #2 on the husband department one would think.

    But I can't say that any longer...we now have THREE dogs and One Pastel Ball Python.

    But they are ALL males that I mentioned...until we added Ahsoka our Aussie to the mix. Now I'm not the only girl any longer...FEELS GREAT!

    My mother in law told me just Friday, that they decided it would be good for "us" [husband and I] to have a baby girl...I said..."Interesting...since he's fixed...I guess I would have to go searching for myself a donor" The looks on their face...PRICELESS!!!

    I know I've said it before but Lucy is litterally my baby girl

    My eldest son is 21 in august my youngest is 12.
    in between their births were a few mishaps
    Then A few more mishaps since Connors birth, 2 of them at least were girls
    Eventually my happiness could take no more and we gave up trying for a daughter
    After a while I started talking puppy instead
    always to be a girl the breed just somehow changed from bassett to bully and hey presto!!
    Lucy my baby girl
