    Default Hello from the Florida Panhandle!

    Hi, my name's Danny and this is Samson (as a little pup and now)..... Attachment 15786
    Attachment 15787
    I've had him since he was 9 weeks. He'll be 9 months on the 15th. He was so much fun that my wife and I couldn't resist getting his little 1/2 sister "Baby Girl," Lil Miss Gia Mae....
    Attachment 15788
    .... They are def a handful together, but worth it. Right now, Gia is with her momma in Jacksonville, FL, but regular visits are made as often as possible so we can all see each other. Just yesterday she went through surgery on her eyes, but is doing great! She's def a happy-go-lucky kinda pup, as is Samson. Samson has had a few issues himself the past month, but nothing too serious. He broke out with a yeast infections on his paws, in his ears, and in the roll of his tail (not quite in the pocket as it's pretty shallow, but he has a more cinna-bun shaped tail). He's doing much better as of lately and clearing up real nice. After reading the site's top ranked foods and a few threads that I've found, I've decided to switch him from TOTW to Nature's Variety (Grain free, Salmon meal) in an attempt to prevent it from being a major ongoing problem as there is no unwanted grains AND no potatoes. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed as we figure out the perfect diet for him (he refuses to eat the Nature's Variety without a small dollop of yogurt and/or pumpkin). I must admit though, he has developed pretty good eating habits- because of the treats and grain free food I've almost always fed him, he refuses to eat simple treats like milk-bones and such and will only eat fresh cut veggies that I prepare and freeze in a zip lock bag for him and grain free/limited indgredient treats. He won't even pay any attention to other animals dog bowls when we are visiting friends lol!! Anyway, he's extremely playful and loves all animals and people, especially the ladies and children. He's also very athletic for a bulldog, in my opinion, and has taken a liking to skateboards! He doesn't quite sketboard yet as I'm waiting for our next vet visit (I'd like to have his hind legs and hips checked out as a precaution since he is still growing and seems to have a skinnier back end :/), plus I haven't found him one big enough for his build. He's a BIG 64lbs. of muscle and still growing! His father, Titus, was a monster as well with a big ole head. I believe he was about 72-75lbs. I imagine Samson will either be around the same or bigger! This is Samson's father below....

    Well, I'll go ahead and wrap this looooooong intro up. I'm super excited about finding this site and am sure I'll have plenty of questions for all of you in the future!

    Welcome to the site, and your bullies are great looking. Jump right in and make friends and post away. I'm not sure on the pitcher thing, I use Photo Bucket to post pics, but I'm sure someone will know.

    you sound like a great Bully parent! You will love it here. I think the easiest way to do pictures is to open a photobucket account and you can download right to here! There is a photo tutorial section in the forums section. Someone who knows what they are doing. (not me!) will come along to explain what happened. The picture I do so is one very handsome guy!

    Wecome! Great looking little guy! I know most people use photobucket on here...I have never been able to figure it out! i go to where all the icons are at the bottom of where you send a message. Roll over the icons , kind of right, midway down, you'll find th image icon. I just click on that and download from computer. After it downloads, double click on pick and you can either center it, move L or R, or I usually enlarge it to medium size. Hope this helps. Glad to have you join this sight! Great info and people here!

    Welcome to the site. Bella, Abby and I are also in Jacksonville area. Is Momma and Gia heading to the panhandle or are you two heading this way??? We have a meet up group here in Jax.

    Love the photos, they are adorable, keep them coming. You found the perfect place and will soon be addicted.

    Always with me

    @bubbaisapig - Yeah, I've never used Photobucket. I used the icon at the top of the text box that says "Insert Image." It's just left of "Insert Video" and right of "Unlink." It allows me to download the pictures right from my computer and shows the actual images until I post. Only then does it turn into attachment links. Is this the icon you're talking about?

    Thanks for the help.... I'll fiddle around without and figure it all out over time I'm sure. In the mean time I'll post a picture here and there testing it out.

    @Bella'sMom- It's only been just over a month now, but we take turns. The girls will be able to us more often as family is in my area, but if are all down and available I'll be sure to let you know!
