    Default New Guy currently in Afghanistan

    How is everyone doing? I'm new to the boards here and just poking my head around to see what wisdom I can pick up from those with the experience. I've been reading, and reading and a little more reading... lol, on Bulldogs for years as they're the breed I've just always wanted. Well, the timing finally worked out and I have picked a puppy that I will be picking up from the breeder a couple of weeks after I get back to the states.

    I tend to float in and out of forums as life changes and moves along, but have always found them to be the best source of information out there for whatever your interest may be at the time. I'm a member of a couple other boards at the time for cigars and my car. Should any of you have any questions or suggestions, I always love some good chatter and welcome the advice as well as the inquiries!

    Thank you all very much for your warm welcome! I am very, very excited! I've had three dogs in the past, and this will be my first Bully. My main question was about nutrition, but I've been reading through some existing threads here on the topic and have been getting some really good info.

    I have some newborn puppy pics that the breeder sent, but not sure if it falls within the board etiquette to post them as I'm still figuring this forum out. If you'd like to see them, let me know!

    My lovely lady back home and I are currently having fun with trying to pick a list of possible names to choose from when we get a better idea of the little guys personality. We tend to lean towards goofier names and Ninja is amongst one of our favorite's... lol.

    Welcome to the forums, and thanks for what you
    are doing over there. I was in Iraq OIF I, & II and
    remember how everyday I planned step by step
    what I was going to do when I got home.

    Can't wait to see pictures of you back on home
    soil, and holding your new puppy. Again thanks
    for being over there. It is a sacrifice some never
    understand. If you need anything let us know. I will
    do everything I can to get you anything you need.

    Thanks a lot bfletch13, that is incredibly generous and kind of you.

    I guess if I do have a lingering question, what would some of your general suggestions be everyone? I've had dogs in the past, but it's been years and have never had a Bully Baby. So any tips or particular things you think I should reasearch would be more than appreciated. I've read a fair bit, but reading and hearing from personal experience is always a different thing.

    We would love to see pictures! As long as they do not have any name on them (advertising a breeder) that is perfectly fine. Hope you post them @FridayGt

    Hahaha, that's exactly what I thought! lol. I'm so anxious to see his eyes open, and then see how those spots on either side of his face will play out. Heck, I'm just anxious to see how he grows and learns and what kind of dog he becomes! Now the only really daunting task is to convince the Pet Parrot at home that the dog is a new family member and not his personal minion to give commands to... lol
