    Thank you! I’m so glad we found someone. He’s feeling so much better. It kept getting infected and was so huge the morning of surgery that he couldn’t close his mouth all the way. It’s been almost a week and he’s already trying to chew on everything which he hasn’t done in a month. He also just...

    Just wanted to update everyone. Brutus had surgery Monday and is healing well! He seemed a little off yesterday but is back to his normal self today. We went with the less invasive procedure. They basically drain it and suture it open so it can freely drain. Sometimes it does come back and...

    More Ollie

    Uuugh I love this! What an awesome boy! I honestly melt every time my Brutus meets a child. He’s just so calm and loving. It’s amazing watching them interact. Brutus is in complete heaven ;)

    No, No, No! But Awwwaaaa

    Here’s our Maine Coon mix. He’s a mix so may be totally different. As you can see he’s the same size as our 21lbs bulldog pup. But he’s actually pretty needy. He’s very socialiable and LOVES our kids. He needs stimulation, way more than most cats. We actually started letting him outside since we...

    Fake news (this is not a political post!)

    Awww that’s adorable! I caught my cat snuggling Brutus the last few mornings :lubu: it’s so adorable and definitely comforting knowing they can tolerate each other, sometimes.

    Surgery is set for April 29th! I found a vet I’m comfortable with. We are only doing the salivary surgery, he thinks doing the palate especially is just too much trauma at once in the mouth. He thinks that Brutus breathes pretty dang well for a bulldog so we’ll just wait and see. It’s also...

    Thanks so much, I really appreciate it! It’s intimidating trying to find a good vet when your dog needs surgery ASAP. I mean it’s not life threatening but it bothers him a lot having this giant cyst in his mouth. I had his records sent over today, once a vet goes through them they’ll call :)

    I did find a vet that was recommended here on this forum so thinking ahead I made an appointment. But I don’t want to go to an appointment for nothing again. I’m going to see if the vet will speak to me on the phone. I basically want to do an interview before I even spend money with you! I know...

    Age to begin training

    Some classes you don’t need all shots done, but do screen them well! They need to require a fecal sample and shots that are up to date for age! But you can find training facilities for younger pups. And it’s really important she’s well socialized now! Start now! They have a really critical...

    I don’t care about the money either...I’d pay 200$ all day long if I got some answers. But to spend the money without getting an appointment for surgery set, not knowing if he needs his palate done, no accurate estimate, and being pushed to spend money on something that isn’t necessary. That...

    Update! So Brutus had his appointment yesterday which I’m pretty upset about and am in the process to switch vets. I actually really liked my vet but then Brutus needs something and she can’t even do it...I’m stuck dealing with people I don’t know or trust. We get there and a young lady vet...

    Stubborn english bulldog puppy !!!

    I don’t have this problem at all with my pup. If anything it’s ‘oh god what are you eating!’ while chasing him around. But I wanted to say Bailey is the cutest!!! I feed Fromm dry with 1-2 spoons of wet food. And freeze dried topping. But I worked with the vet on correct amounts of each. It’s...

    Age to begin training

    Look into training centers close to you. A lot of experienced trainers recommend starting ASAP...like 8 weeks. Less time for them to learn bad behaviors, which then you have to correct. I had to leash my puppy around my daughter for a few weeks. He saw her as an equal and started nipping hard...

    Seat belt Advise Needed

    The seat belt ones freak me out too. I got this one, but I’ve only used it three times now so can’t really recommend yet. It hooks into the car seat latch bars that are inside the seats. I’ve never had a car seat come loose so figured it was safer. Edited to say I use with Ruffwear front...

    Puppy biting

    Thanks everyone for the great advice! A little update. We haven’t been playing tug of war and instead finding other ways to play. No more incidents. In fact he’s doing amazing with nipping, for a 4 month old puppy he’s been very gentle and really doesn’t put his mouth on us much. He did of...
