    Default Hello from SoCal

    Hey guys!

    I joined here so I can be prepared for the new bulldog puppy my mom is bringing home this Wednesday!

    His full name is Murray Sparkles- It's a long story..

    My mom used to have a Saint Bernard, Gilbert. He was a loving dog, but he had a spinal tumor and had to be put down New Year's Eve 2012.

    Then she had one of those "Mini Pigs." He turned out to be not only a Vietnamese Potbelly weighing 300 pounds- but he wasn't legal, so he now lives on a sanctuary.

    And this Wednesday (after a subaru fiasco a while ago), Murray Sparkles will be coming home!

    If you think his name is based off the old Sesame Street clip, you would be right! (I am aware that Murray Sparkles was a cat.) Murray Sparkles was going to be Gilbert's original name- But I was 5, and had my heart set on the name Gilbert. (His full name turned out to be Gilbert Murray Sparkles Zurg *my last name*)

    My mom believes that an English Bully is a perfect mix of Pig and Saint Bernard- and after meeting Murray a little while ago, and doing research on their eating and sleeping habits, I think she's right.

    We have prepared. We have a Kennel, an attachment for his food bowl to stop him from eating too fast, a Toothbrush for dogs, PLENTY of toys, and even a cute reindeer hoodie to boot! My dad has also trained 2 German Shepherds, So we are ready to train and socialize young!

    If there's ANYTHING I should know/prepare for- please, let me know!! I want to make sure everybody is happy- including Murray!
    Just a guy making sure what's right for my bulldog

    Training a bulldog will be different than training German Shepherds!! Been there.

    Welcome to the site and can't wait to see pics of your baby. Also a reminder no rawhides, pig ears, or bully sticks for them, they can be deadly.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    Thanks for the heads up. Those are the treats my dad uses for the shepherds, so Murray will need special treats.
