Tuffy is 9 months old and he is our first bulldog! We previously had a buff and white Cocker Spaniel named Sophie, who died at the age of 13 a couple of years ago. I never knew anyone who had a bulldog but had seen them around town and just always found them too cute for words. I then saw Munch in that Iams commercial and was hooked even further. What solidified the decision for me was last July when we were on vacation in N.C. and someone at a neighboring cabin had a tiny bulldog puppy. I thought it was fate and knew right then and there that I had to have one...to my husband's consternation because he said three kids was enough and we didn't need "anymore living things in our house." But my heart was set on having a bullie to love and I began meticulously researching reputable breeders and learning as much as I could about caring for this high maintence breed. We were going to wait until this Fall to get new puppy because my youngest would be starting kindergarten, but last December the breeder of my choice had the red and white puppy that I'd been dreaming of and I was smitten at first sight. The rest is history... Tuffy is such a wonderful addition to our family and we've all fallen under his spell--even my stubborn husband who grudgingly admits that "since we HAD to get a dog, Tuffy is not bad."
Nothing brings me more pleasure than seeing Tuffy's sweet bully face gaze up at me with those adoring brown eyes. He's a true treasure!
