    Default Re-Introduction of our family

    well, I am usually lurking around the forums and learning new things everyday. With that said, the past few months have been crazy good and absolutely terrible. On December 14th we lost our boy Nigel when he ran out into the highway during a snow storm. It was the worst thing I have went through in my adult life and it was very rough for my wife. We still find moments where we get choked up from some kind memory or reminder of our sweet boy. Nigel was was with me and wife from almost the beginning of our relationship that has led us to now be married with a baby on the way! He was able to share in these great moments and that is what makes it so hard for us since he was such a big piece of who we were as a family.

    After a few weeks, our house was unbearably quiet and we made the decisions to add to our family again. I travel a lot for work, so I like to have a dog in the house to give my wife a peace of mind and we have found bullies to be so human-like that we knew it had to be another bulldog. With that said, I had been following a few breeders for quite some time and we compared with what was being offered locally. I did not get the warm fuzzy feeling from anyone in our 100 mile radius, so we choose to go with *****. We welcomed home Rupert on January 8th and he has been a bundle of fun. We are confident that Nigel is hanging around the house telling Rupert what things to get into and how to annoy Tuna (our cat).

    I am so sorry for the loss of Nigel. He was the handsomest of boys! I can't imagine your heartbreak. But your Rupert is quite something. Look at that face! I wish you much love and happiness with both of your new babies!
