    Did you see the bulldog toy on HBO's "Flight Attendant"

    Anybully watch "The Flight Attendant" on HBO max and notice the adora-bull stuffed toy bulldog? We have that exact one (got it at Ikea years ago), and I was sooo tickled to see it on this show! I just HAD to take piks! :p (sorry for poor quality---these were the best ones out of MANY attempts!)

    Nails painfully long, too elderly for sedation

    Hi, I'm so curious what everybully else does! Meaty is 12 and 1/2 now, and in the PAST--- it took vet, staff member, AND hubby to get the nails trimmed. But he recently snapped at a vet tech just for something simple, so I think the ONLY way they'll attempt a nail trim is sedation---NO way...

    Veterinarians that are happy/giddy around bulldogs

    I'm curious how many here have experienced this? We have seen a few different vets for different reasons, plus--with fostering, we had to go to specific vets that we didn't choose. Everybully here knows how *a LOT* of the general public get sooo excited and happy when they see a bulldog. It...

    We lost precious Sophie June 12, 2020

    Amazing that 8 days have passed already since our precious 9-year-old Sophie went to the Rainbow Bridge. Hubbs and I have shed many tears, and we're also looking for signs that our 11-year-old bulldog Meaty is grieving. He hasn't shown any signs yet--- but it breaks my heart even MORE to think...

    When people don't understand your profound GRIEF

    Hi, I had a conversation with a dear, very close friend last night, and something she said is REALLLY bugging me! I will definitely be talking to her about how much it bothered me, but I'd like to hear from others who've been through this. She's known the loss of beloved dogs---as a matter of...
