    Hi Nic and welcome to EBN, so glad you joined us. You'll love it on this site, lots of great information and lots of great people to share advice, experience, stories, and pictures. We loooove pictures on here. Lol. Your babies are gorgeous, I also have two EB, siblings, they are two years old now, and their names are Bulldozer and Blossom. I think everyone should have at least two EB's. I would have a 100 if I could. Lol. My guys are the opposite of yours in personality, my Dozer is the laid back guy, and by laid back I mean lazy, he is skittish of everything including his own shadow, he likes to sleep, he definitely doesn't like to walk, but he's the biggest cuddle muffin ever. His sister Blossom is the Diva, the Boss, and full of energy, she will walk forever, and she is also a big suck. She loves her tummy rubs. Looking forward to seeing more of you and your babies on here, and seeing more pictures.

    Thanks again everyone! Great to visit around see everyone else's cute bullies too!
    @ddnene - I've never done the patties and always make my own. Georgia is a 'gulper' by nature (always has been) and struggles at times with swallowing larger bones, so I usually grind any chicken that is fed to them (it's their primary protein source). However, they also get the other goodies with no grinding; their favorites being tripe, any beef in general, elk, venison and turkey. As I mentioned, I'm always happy to share any raw feeding successes or knowledge. I'll have to scope out the raw feeding threads and see if I can offer some input From a bulldog standpoint, I feel that raw is definitely a nice benefit. It's unfortunate, but we have a sensitive breed (even those that are well bred are still sensitive to a lot of things). Their coats are always really nice, never have to get a teeth cleaning, weight is easy to control and best of all - No farting!!

    Side story - Georgia had to get an emergency spay this last weekend (she had Pyometra for those familiar with what that is). I was super bummed as she was looking to be a good candidate to give us some lovely Georgia pups; but the best for her health was to do the spay rather than treat the pyo. Anyhow, our vet's office gave her food the next morning. It was "sensitive stomach" kibble as we weren't able to take them her raw food the next morning, given that the vet's office is about an hour from our house (he's a bulldog specialist, owner and bully breeder - we lucked out!). So... Georgia eats a tiny bit of their kibble, and holy heavens, the wife was ready to get rid of her because her gas was soooooo bad!! I've never smelled gas that bad out of anything, and it was coming from my sweet little bully Sorry for the TMI, but had to share

    Welcome to the site, and you have some beautiful babies. So happy you discovered the pyro early enough, to get her spayed, before it got too bad. We had one of our girls get it and we were wanting to breed her one more time, but when she got it, it was no question, but to spay her. Her health was more important to us.

    100% agree. She was only on her second heat cycle (obviously not bred yet). We woke up last Saturday morning do a white discharge from her - and as she had just stopped spotting 2 days prior, I knew what it was the second I saw it. My heart sank

    Because we got it early enough, we could have treated it (the treatment is pretty vigorous, but again, we caught it hours after it had begun). From the time we got her to the vet, we believe it had started about 6-8 hours ago (in the middle of the night). But, I was more wanting Georgia to have a good life and not be in too much pain/anguish, so the decision was quite easy. In hindsight, it was the right decision, as the doc did the spay and identified that she was developing cysts on her ovaries (TMI yet?) and likely would not have been able to conceive. Truth be told, I wouldn't have spayed her anyway even if we chose not to breed (or if she ended up not being a great candidate) mostly because I believe in the more natural approach. But, that of course goes out the window when there is a clear health hazard that is immediate.

    Word to those that have intact females - please, please, PLEASE know the signs of Pyometra! It can come on so fast and is fatal if not treated immediately. It's easy to identify if you know what you are looking for. And, even if you have young pups, you really need to know of it

    I'm so so sorry to hear about your Georgia girl, Thank God you caught it in time!!! I have NO idea what the warning sides for pyometra are, I don't have my female bully anymore… but that might be something that we need to start a thread on @desertskybulldogs ?!! I have a bully pup right now who is on kibble, but I'm interested in raw mostly because of their allergies and the constant food recalls w/dog food. I don't know if I would have the time to invest in grinding myself, but I have seen the raw patties in our local pet stores. I honestly think that most dogs would prefer raw over kibble any day… LOL
