    Default Hi from Virginia:)

    Hi everyone

    So glad I found this forum, because I know absolutely zip about English Bulldogs, and we have a 12 week old puppy. Her name is Georgia, but we call her Gigi for short. We actually came to own her by accident. My brother actually purchased her from a well known horrible pet store. After having her for maybe 3 full days, she got sick, I mean really sick. Her nose was pouring with thick green and yellow discharge. She was majorly congested, coughing, and very tired. So my brother, who is a 28 yr old professional child, calls me, his big sister because he doesn't know what to do. He brought her to me and I got her to the vet and turns out she had an untreated case of kennel cough, that was in the beginning stages of pneumonia. We've had her now for almost two weeks. After paying all the vet bills and taking care of her, my brother asked me if I would take her. I have an 8 year old daughter that just loves her and my Husband was over the moon about her, try saying no to that!

    She's been on meds for nearly two weeks, and feeling much better. So here we are, and I have so MANY questions! Do I ask those here? Or should I start another thread under another topic?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jenn and Georgia

    Hi Jenn! Welcome to you & Georgia, and bless you for taking her in, and nursing her back to health!

    I would start a new thread if you have specific questions, under that topic that way you get the most replies, help, suggestions, etc

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Thanks y'all for the warm welcome! I promise to post more pics and get my profile pic all figured out soon. Now that you know how we got our pup, I guess I should tell y'all a little about our family. My Husband is active duty army and we are 2 years from retirement, God willing. We have 2 daughters, 11 and 8. Before Gigi arrived, we already had 2 Shih Tzus, they are 12 and 5. Right now they think Gigi is the spawn of satan, lol. We live in Virginia in a townhouse that I hate, because I'm a country girl from South Georgia, and I like open spaces. That's all I can think of at the moment, lol

    Thank your husband, you, and your family for their service! I'm prior Air Force active duty and grew up on several different bases (Air Force brat). Agree on the open spaces and hopefully that's what is in your future!
