    Did the brown stuff on the sheet smell like rotten fish and garbage? She might have expressed her anal glands! Sometimes when the stool is not a normal form the gland doesnt naturally express when she eliminated. Insted it will fill up so much that they will just express whenever. Definatly keep that tail pocket clean and dry.

    The brown stuff definitely smells terrible. I can smell it coming from her tail though. If i got to the vet will they give me antibiotics? is this something that i can help get rid of on my own by keeping it clean and getting some destidin for her? It looks pink and swollen underneath her tail. Thanks for getting back to me everyone.

    First bully, first tail issue... not fun!

    I would give it a good clean and try the desitin overnight, and see what it looks like in the morning. If it is still looking swollen, and sore/raw looking then it may have turned into an infection that just cleaning won't help. It may mean a visit to the vets this time, but at least you now know all the preventative measures that you have to take with these tail pockets!!!

    If your dog has a curled up tail, its like a fold and all the folds on your puppy need to be kept very clean and dry, run your finger all around the tail, if your finger gets into a fold or crease, that's called the tail pocket. Check the roll or nose rope closely too. this is all part of the high maintenance that a bulldog requires. a clean dry bulldog is a happy bulldog.

    Ahhhh! Pocket sounds worse then it actually is. I was starting to worry...lol. Thanks for clearing that up. Her wrinkles and creases and pockets and ropes (hahaha) are clean and dry. On a serious note, i use cornstarch in her nose rope.
