    This made me burst out laughing...bullies are such divas!

    Thank you & GOD bless you for adopting her and hanging in there
    so long, I am filled with respect, admiration & pride as I know how
    much it takes to do so. She looks wonderful...great job!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    What an amazing job you have been doing with her, she is beautiful, yes just love the photo of her napping, she is so lucky you found her, what a terrible life she must have had beforehand, no wonder she is so unsure how to act. I hope for future progress.

She still won't leave cat alone. That's my next step. That may never resolve. Seems its her natural instinct not to like the cat. We still have house accidents. Training a puppy is easy but a 3 year old dog isn't so easy. I think alot is spite. She doesn't bite me any longer when I take stuff. Her aggression is 99% gone. She doesn't chase the kids on bikes or bite when when swinging. She comes when called and leaves stuff most time when asked once. She hides under table still but I can get her out if I am calm. Huge improvement in a month. I'm sure I will be posting in here again. Still have so many bull dog questions. Thanks for all help thus far. She actually has gained a healthy weigh and looks good. She's healthy but keeps getting UTI. We had some very strong medicine and got rid of it but it comes back. She still likes to eat everything she sees which scares me. Is this normal? I try to keep stuff up just as I would with a child but she always finds something .
    What kind of training collar? Shock?

    Yes it's shock - very light but I don't have to use that. I just use the noise vibration

    Gretchen sure is beautiful I absolutely LOVE the pic of her on her mat with her own blanket. Sheldon claimed one of my son's old comforters and won't give it up I have to wait till he is outside to wash it because otherwise it ends up a tug of war with him.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.
