Boobies
Hi all, I need some comfort from the bulldog community as on Sunday (29/08/21), I lost my soul mate, Boobies. He was/is the most beautiful boy, and I am completely lost without him. He passed away peacefully in his sleep, snoring, and was 8 years old. He decided to fall asleep and he knew we wouldn't be able to make the decision, like a typical stubborn bulldog he did what he wanted to do.

My heart is breaking, and I know as a Bulldog parent when you have one, all your love goes into them, it is an endless pool of love for them. From when you wake up in the morning, have your morning conversation with them (if they have decided to wake up at the same time as you), let them out for their morning toilet break, run around the garden, back to sleep (until you wake them up for their next toilet break), more conversations and judgy looks to their afternoon mad hour, inhaling of food and back to sleep. I miss the noise Boobies brought to the house and would do anything to hear his nails on the wooden flooring and give him kisses, ear scratches, wipe his folds or the drool from his mouth.

What I love about bulldogs and Boobies, is how much of an impact they have on other people. The outpouring of love, messages, never before seen photos and videos of him have all reminded me of what an amazing bulldog he was and the life he had. I had Boobies, from the age of 2 months and he lived with me in France and grew up as a mountain dog in Les Alpes. We lived all over France, moved to the UK for a few years, and then finally settled here in Norway where he got to live his life with his papa and we became the three musketeers. I made a promise to Boobies that when we left France, we would eventually move to Norway and he would never have to move again and we fulfilled that promise.

They take your heart and for that, I am grateful, as he will always have it. I use to wish, I could bring Boobies everywhere with me, and now he is always with me in everything I do. Always and forever my Mr Boo.

So very sorry to hear about your bullyboy. He's a beautiful fella. My boys and I send out our thoughts and prayers to you during this difficult time. But know that they are never truly gone as long as you keep them in your heart and memories.

He really does walk beside me every day... they're our shadows that we can even trip over now and again.

I'm so very sorry for your loss... over the years, I have lost several bullies and it never gets easier. Just know that you gave him a wonderful life here on this earth, and that is all that any dog would want... he will be waiting for you at the rainbow bridge :heart:

What a great life you gave each other!
True Bulldog owners, like you, are as special as the Bulldogs they care for.
Another Bulldog will help with the healing...and there's one out there that needs you.
Don't wait...start your search now.

Thank you for those kind words. I use to think it would be too hard, but looking at so many other bulldog videos the last few days you're reminded that they all have very similar attributes and characters to my boo... and then you realise, you are bound in love to always being a bully mum, wanting to carry on the legacy. The story never ends!

I am so sorry for your loss. The silence around the house with no doggie noises is very hard. It sounds like he lived a wonderful life with you; keep the good memories of him always with you.

I am so sorry for your loss! It is almost indescribable, the pain these losses cause. I hope and pray that all of the wonderful love and memories somehow ease the pain.

Prayers!

@Lelagh Sending comforting prayers for you. Many of us here know the pain of losing your best friend. We know the silence and pain of this loss. Your memories will always be with you in your heart to keep. When you are ready, the cure is getting another best friend. This is not a replacement, but an addition .There is always room for another in your heart.:heart:

Yes I agree. Getting another bully doesn’t replace the loss BUT what it will do is give you is another place to give and receive love. You cannot replace your beloved boy, but you can make another bully lucky to have you! I know it very personally. You can still hear the beautiful sound of the shuffling front paws, the snores, the drinking from the bowl…the special smells…there is no dog greater than a bulldog. All of them own my heart, I will never live without one. You can still grieve and hurt but you don’t have to be without.
