I Saw Twilight and Belle Update

Okay, so I did it. I went to the 7:50 pm showing of Twilight on Friday night. It was a lot of fun. I loved how excited all the teenage girls were. They all screamed when Jacob Black was on the screen. Then when the Cullens appeared, all the girls went nuts. Now, I did not scream, but Mr. Cowboy did. I think he was pretending to be one of those teenage girls. I laughed at him. And yes, Mr. Cowboy is very in touch with his feminine side. He has no problem wearing red jammies with hearts on them. He is my big tough, bull riding, cowboy, who loves red heart jammies and girly movies like Tiwilight.

My thoughts about the movie, ugh. It was a bit on the cheesy side. Also, they really did a lot of things out of order. Then they left out a lot of stuff. I think it would have made a better t.v. movie. One that would have gone over a few days. Then they wouldn't have had to of cut out a lot of the stuff. All and all, it was alright. Not my favorite. Mr. Cowboy and I agreed that the new Fast and the Furious trailer looked a lot more entertaining than Twilight.
But that is where I have been. I have been Twilighting around town. It was a nice night to get out and about. I did stand in a two hour line to see Twilight. I know, I am a dork. I just hope when they do the second movie, it's less cheesy. I could go on and on about what I thought was all wrong with the movie, but I won't . It was entertaining and I got a night with Mr. Cowboy with no kids.
On a different note, Belle is doing wonderful. She is a spunky little girl, but we all are enjoying her. She is very good about being potty trained. Just a few accidents, but we almost have it down. I will say that the accidents happened on Mr. Cowboy's watch. She is really active in the mornings and then as the day goes on she slows down. Thank goodness. I am not sure I could handle her being excited all day long. I am grateful for active Cowpokes that can entertain her. Little Cowpoke loves to play with Belle. Cowpokette will bring Belle toys and get all excited when Belle grabs them and plays with them. Cowpokette is so helpful.
Brodi, on the other hand, is not too sure about Belle. He will play with her for a few minutes, but then he is done. I think he is hoping that one day he will wake up and the puppy will be gone. But we all make sure Brodi gets a lot of attention. Can you see the love? Brodi is such a good boy. He listens so well. I hope Belle will listen like he does. I do have one issue with Belle. She is tries really hard to be dominant. But I don't let her. I do a lot of things to make sure she knows that she is at the bottom of the pack. When we walk through the back door she is the last one to come in, after Brodi. But the one thing that she does, is when she is sleeping. She has done this twice. Cowpokette and Little Cowpoke have gone to pet her and she growls and snaps at them. I quickly intervene and then put her in her kennel. What else can we do? I have had Little Cowpoke play with her in a way that he is the boss. He will take her toys from her and then when he wants her to have them he gives them to her. I know it sounds mean, but those toys are our toys and we let her play with them. And she is good with that, it's just when she is sleeping. I hope it's just something that she will grow out of? I did notice that when Freddy was playing "army" with Little Cowpoke, Belle jumped in front of Little Cowpoke and barked at Freddy. Belle is protective already. I hope we are doing the right things to not make her more aggressive. I have heard that bulldogs have a different mind set than other dogs. One thing I do know is that I miss my mellow yellow lab. Oh sweet Bear would have never snapped at my kids and he would scare away the meanest FedEx man. But this is not Bear and I should probably stop comparing the two. So, if anyone has any bulldog advice, let me know, I will take any suggestions.

Totally agree with you on the movie, and can't BELIEVE that no one who commented on my blog agreed! What's with everyone else? Goobers...

Your little Cowpokette is too cute in the post below!!!

I have not had a chance to read the Twilight series yet, but a lot of my friends have and they LOVED them! Too bad the movie wasn't as good for you. Sometimes a really good book makes for a terrible movie, and vice-versa.

I really should read the series this summer though, seeing as how Forks is a little over an hour from here...lol!!!

Belle is adorable! And I hated Twilight! Good luck teaching Belle who's boss, sounds like your on the right track. Sounds like somebody's been watching the Dog Whisperer.....love him!

Belle is so cute. She reminds me of a boxer we had. Great memories. Hope you enjoy her. We went to Twilight, while it wasn't all I'd hoped for I refuse to jump on the bad movie bandwagon. We had a great night out. I remember standing in line outside in the cold for HOURS waiting to see Star Wars (the first one). I remember seeing the midnight showing of ET (and falling asleep in it!!!). So I am probably standing alone saying that it wasn't a big waste of money. Guess I'm just not a harsh critic. Glad you enjoyed your date ;) Mr B came with us too.
