    Default bully senses...

    I know bullies are very sensitive to their surroundings and a comfort when we need it but has anyone else been pregnant and had so much overly love from a bully? Cutty did this when I was pregnant the first time around too, he will just come and give me hugs up to 10 times a day. Sit on my lap and just want to cuddle, which for him isnt the usual. He just started this again with this pregnancy I guess in the last month and I love it! I know he can sense it. I am curious what everyone elses experiences are with how over sensitive their bullies can be. The funny thing is Mugsy, my pug could care les or is in denial about it but he hasnt changed at all. lol.

    I don't have any children, but Vegas is sensitive to my condition. I'm a type 1 insulin dependant diabetic. I'm on an insulin pump.......and like any other diabetic on insulin, I suffer from occasional hypoglycemia. One night, Vegas woke me up by nudging me. Figuring he had to go potty, I brought him downstairs and let him out. He just sat by the door and stared at me. Once in an upright position, I started feeling dizzy, so I checked my blood sugar. 38! That is pretty low. It could have caused a seizure if I hadn't been woken up by Vegas. (by seizure I mean a diabetic seizure.......where my body is suffering from lack of glucose and my body starts to seize until I get something carbs in my mouth.) I've also noticed that when I don't feel well, Vegas is very much the cuddle bug. Yesterday I had the day off from work. I was very tired from not sleeping.......Vegas crawled up behind me on the couch and put his neck over mine. With his comfort, I slept a good 3 hours. I just to be snuggled by a bulldog!

    When I was taking my doctoral exams a few years ago, and majorly stressing out, both Bentley and I both shared some "gastrointestinal issues" - I guess he was really nervous too!

    Also, when I broke my ankle, my usually playful Linus sat on the couch with me for a couple days in a row (Bentley was too nervous about the crutches) and use what I term "specials healing powers of the bulldog."

    Finally, I suffered a miscarriage last summer. I was heartbroken and so were my bullies, who watched by my beside and made sure everything was as okay as it could be.

    It's also just nice to know someone is there for you in the wee hours when you can't sleep or don't feel good or had a bad day. Hopefully I can do the same for them when they need it too.

    Oh Cali~Jenn I love it! Haven't gotten pregnant yet (thats a while off still) but Samson is definitely very sensitive to my mood. He is very gentle and cuddly when I am sad or sick.

    Wow! This may explain why my daughter's puppy, Millie ( a week older than Gertie) was soooo attentive to her this last week or so. My daughter is in nursing school and she was studying 24/7 and Millie was under her feet while she studied. Meanwhile, crazy Gertie is a wild woman and we're thinking it's just cause Gertie is a little Monster!! Well after Joyce took her finals, was no longer stressed and studying constantly, Millie went right back to be an obnoxious puppy again, just like Gertie. Mystery solved.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
