    Welcome! Texas...a place my boys always wanted to visit when younger...[Due to Sandy Cheeks from Spongebob was from there ]

    Just remember the key to remember is that bulldogs can't take the heat. The only reason I say this is...I learned that a bulldog I had almost chosen for our family...then decided on Sarge...Passed away last year. Due to the owner keeping him outside 24/7 And they lived in TEXAS... I see from your avatar picture that your bullies are indoors. Just be careful when they are out...the breeder I almost went with from Texas had her female bulldog die due to her daughter forgetting to let her back in before heading off to school. Heat is the worst enemy for our bulldog babies...

    Enough of that...sorry I hope you didn't feel that was a lecture. It wasn't intended to be in the least...just...I learned recently of the dog's death and it's still raw.

    But back to you! I can't WAIT to see pictures of your bullie family.

    Patiently awaiting pictures...

    Did I mention that I enjoy pictures...

    Have a great day...I am so glad you found the forum...and joined! A warm welcome to you...

    Thanks for the welcome, that is so funny about your boys . Well thanks for the advice about the heat, we live in west Texas and it gets pretty hot down here but our girls are indoors they just go out for the bathroom and maybe a 10-15 minute play about twice a day. It's so funny to me for them to be indoor dogs they love to be outside. I pratically have to drag them in or bribe them with baby carrots. That's so sad how some people leave them outside all day. I'm working on pictures right now but I can't figure out how to post them.

    I'm sure our Ohio weather isn't as bad as Texas...but we have hot days here during the summer. And Tank would fry his brains out if you let him laying out on the deck. So I'm hearing ya with your bulldogs not wanting to come in out of the heat.

    I use Photobucket upload them there...and then attach the link for Forums. And they are easily shown without needing to open a link...It's a free site...you upload your picture...go to SHARE once it's loaded...and then click
    IMG for bulletin boards & forums
    Highlight the link and copy...then paste it here on the post your doing...I prefer the larger size option.

    Did I tell you I like pictures...

    Welcome!!! You say you are new to bulldogs but have an 8 month old, how did that come about? We like to be nosey and get all the details so spill away. Oh and yes PICS please. I agree with the warning on the heat, with summer coming we cannot have enough of these as reminders to us all. If 1 bully is lost due to the heat it is a tragedy. As it gets hotter you will find that playing outside is a no-no even. My boy is a fetch addict and tries to get me to throw the ball in the warm months and the only chance he gets at that even is first thing in the morning before the sun kicks in. Even then tho you can hear it in his breath how fast he needs a break.

    We have had our 8 month old since she was 10 weeks old but what I meant was that we've never owned a EB before her so we are still learning and still needing advice. We decided to get another one because we wanted her to have a friend.

    Oh! Gottcha. Cutty is 5 and I am still learning everyday so I know how that is. haha That is a good age difference between them, they will play well together. I think Cutty was about 10 months or so when we got Mugsy as a pup and they took to each other right away.
