    Default I've checked out this site before but am just now registering!

    Hi. My name is Tricia. We have been bully owners for 11 years, with the exception of the past six months, as we lost the love of my life (don't tell my husband) in June. We bought Yukon as the runt of the litter, weighing only 2.4 lbs when we got him from a breeder. I don't think she was the worst breeder in the world, but I don't think she was the best either. We were very fortunate to have a fairly healthy bully....he suffered from cherry eye and occasional sprains, but for a runt he lived a long, happy life. As he aged, my youngest daughter got involved with Indiana Bulldog Rescue....which in turn got ALL of us involved in Indiana Bulldog Rescue. What a great group!! I haven't met a bully I didn't like! Sadly, however, Yukon did. He was not keen on other bullies and we were a bit overprotective, so our attempt at fostering for them failed. It's funny though, because we added three cats and three rabbits to the family during his lifetime and he never minded them one bit.

    So here we are, and we are getting a new EB puppy from a reputable breeder. I feel bad we aren't adopting, but for various reasons, this is the route we have chosen. As we will be welcoming Chaplin into our home in the next few weeks, I thought I would officially join this group in case I have new mommy questions. This time around is going to be different, and I am looking forward to the experience! It looks like it will take me awhile to figure things out, but I'm sure I'll get there eventually!

    We warmly welcome you to the EBN family!
    I'm sorry for the loss of your boy Yukon. He sounds like a wonderful bully who gave you lots of joy.
    How exciting for you to be adopting a new bully. Please do not hesitate in jumping right in with any questions, ideas or thoughts you want to share.

    Well, may I be the first to welcome you here and offer my condolences on the loss of Yukon. He sounds like he was a well-loved member of the family and of course, you were blessed to know him.

    Chaplin will probably not be anything like him, since no matter how alike all bulldogs are, they are all so different and quirky. I know you cannot wait to get him home! The anticipation is so great. Do not feel bad for not adopting, lots of us have gotten puppies. We got Liz as a puppy from a breeder. Amy was re-homed to us at 4 months, so she qualifies as both!

    My condolences about Yukon. These bullies really tug at your heartstrings, no matter what the circumstances. They're all perfect in their own way.

    Oh and welcome to the site! Maybe when you welcome your new baby, you can try fostering again. And bless you for trying.

    Welcome to the site. I am sorry you lost Yukon, it is so very hard to loose a family member, even if they are fur-kids.

    I am excited for you to be getting a new addition. Can't wait to see photos.
    This site is so perfect for all bully owners whether new or experienced. We have a great bunch of people here.

    Always with me

    Welcome! What took you so long to join?

    Sorry to hear of your loss, I hope you can share more of your wonderful stories about him in time. Looking forward to meeting Chaplin!

    IBR is a wonderful group! Maybe after the puppy training is done you can give fostering another try.
