They seem to sleep more as they got older, but they are both really well socialized, love people, children, and other animals. Basically they are both big sucky cuddle muffins.
    Well that's good not to much work for you. I would love that

    They re just like children and constantly changing.... as a puppy (under 8 months) Banks was totally fearless of everything nothing bothered her at all... plastic bags, vacuum cleaner, baby gates -- nothing. At around 1 or maybe 2 that all changed... she is now terrified of any plastic bag, baby gates, broom, mops and the vacuum cleaners are all mortal enemies. Now, put another dog or cat in from to her and she has not a lick of fear in her, she will throw down with any other animal....

    there are only two things about Banks that has never wavered -- overwhelming love of children (all ages) and he BEEOTCHYNESS

    Vegas has become more aggressive with age. He use to be the submissive bulldog that would play with all dogs at the park. But once he was diagnosed with epilepsy and they started pumping him full of drugs.....he changed. Talk to anyone who gives their dogs seizure meds.....they will say "I want my old dog back". I'm no different. It sucks to have to say "I remember when......"

    Basically....when people come over, Vegas has to be kenneled. He gets too excited. He's too powerful. He's too anxiety ridden. And he can nip. The epilepsy has changed him. Vegas (up until the age of 3 or 4) was the sweetest cuddle bug and sweetest dog. Now I don't trust him enough to let people walk up and pet him. Better to be safe than sorry. People have met him and been okay. @agingermom and her hubby Dean didn't get eaten alive by him. But I was on guard and told them to be careful. He never nips out of aggression.....in fact, I don't think he's aggressive in the slightest. I think the seizures have altered his brain and the meds have altered his reasoning.

    I feel for you and Vegas. This was very sad to read. Poor baby he probably can't Control it. Hopefully one day with prayers they will find or give you a medication that will bring a calm medium back to him. Thank you for sharing this story with me. Mia and I will pray for a better med for your baby.

    That is so great. Then to be going the same route and him over come it. Thank you for the reply. See in my head I was thinking we'll she is not scared of certain things so she will be good later but sounds like that is not the case. I have to keep her around things and maybe it's like you said reassurance all the time, maybe?

    Arnold has always been a laid back boy, well socialized with other bullies, etc. Enter Bertha Bacon...... She is a typical girl and encourages the male to be bad, lol. Seriously, once she entered our family, there is more packing behavior with her at the lead. We now deal with fence frustration etc. So, because our lives are dynamic, I think there is always a potential for changes in behavior just we change because of sentinel events

    P.S. Orion and Vegas are heart throbs!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    I'm afraid of that too I was thinking of adopting a male once she is about one and I'm afraid later that it may change her. Does this happen a lot or should I look for one while she is still young? Doe she get him wild or is just when she walks in the room?

    It is her personality and always been her personality from day one of her life, lol. But this is Bertha and Arnold and not the case for every bullie. Yvette, just enjoy your bullie today and dont worry so much about the tomorrow's. If we all told you our personal circumstances, you would need to drink alot, lol


    I'm a good girl, I promise
