    Default Hi everyone, I'm Gleason

    I'm young, I'm male, and I'm a bully in a china shop (or so my dad likes to say). Ok, so I'm a little clumsy and occasionally I race around and bump into things. What do you want from me, I'm a bulldog! But believe me, sleeping or resting my head on dad's foot or leg or just any 'ol thing, is much preferred! I was found wandering the streets of Los Angeles, not fun at all! I'm not sure how old I am but I think I'm around two. Thanks to some smart, caring people I was rescued and given a new life, new home and plenty of beds. Oh, and much better food! Now, if I can just find a way to stop tinkling in my bed late at night and learn to obey dad's very simple commands (I don't need no stinkin' commands!) my new life will be complete. Good thing those pesky squirrels run a lot faster than me! I'm tired, gotta rest. Later, homies!

    I am belly laughing here...love your introduction and Gleason...awesome character!

    May you be blessed mightily for giving him a loving & caring home, thank you, my friend.

    I rehomed Brutus just 6 months ago, think he's 4-5 y/o, just passed around thru several
    owners BUT I'm the last one!

    With him and so many other bullies, if there is ANY fabric they lay on to sleep, they pee.

    It's sounds mean but I leave nothing but the plastic tray in his crate and I turn that over
    to the smooth side or he rubs his bum raw against the pebbled side. He sleeps with me
    and just last week, pee'd the bed (I'd just washed ALL the linens that very day
    ), he's
    not done that in months, guess he'd got the linens bunched up beneath him.

    Welcome to EBN and keep those great pics coming!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Congratulations on finding Gleason. I think he actually looks like Jackie Gleason in the first picture. Good luck!

    Gleason! you're a cutie and I'm so glad you were rescued from those dangerous LA streets. Enjoy living the good life with your dad and tell him to be patient with you.

    Thanks, everyone! Gleason is indeed a cutie but he isnít my first bulldog. In fact, I didnít want another one after I lost Tootsie (see below) to cancer. Very difficult to deal with the loss of our bullies as Iím sure most of you know.

    A month after Tootsie passed I visited a local rescue to ask about becoming a foster parent in what I thought was a brave attempt to console myself (almost impossible) by helping other dogs in need. The woman in charge of the rescue showed a couple of her bullies, very sweet and lovable, and tried to convince me to adopt one but it was just too soon for me. That is, until she said, ďOh, but I have this other bulldogÖĒ From around the corner trots Gleason who immediately rested his big head on my knee and promptly fell asleep! As soon as I saw Gleason I thought, as corny as it sounds, that Tootsie was looking out for me and was urging that I arrange to adopt him. I didnít need any urging, of course, and even felt a little guilty but there was no denying it Ė I loved that Gleason! Actually, his rescuer was calling him Angus but I changed it because he reminded me of Jackie Gleason. Yes, Iím over 50. Gleason is the opposite of Tootsie in every way except for the universal qualities that distinguish all bulldogs Ė lovable nature, peculiar interest in people, occasional silliness, unique companionship and couch hog. Iím glad Gleason is so different from Tootsie. Otherwise, I couldnít have adopted so soon.

    I think of Tootsie every day but am blessed to have Gleason around me every day. Heís as much stubborn and defiant as he is playful and protective, all of which I like. But Iím a little concerned about keeping his weight in check. Heís very fit now but I can see that Iíll need to manage his food intake for the rest of his life. Anyone tried a good, high quality food for weight management?

    Happy to be here and looking forward to reading all about the other bullies in attendance. More pics to come!
