We have been looking at English Bulldogs for a long time. We read about all the health issues and behaviors of the English Bulldog. I was really beginning not to want one at all. They would have higher doctor bills than the kids. All the while I was hoping that Bear would just show up. But to my deeply saddened heart, he has not. So, Mr. Cowboy found him a bulldog. It's an Olde English Bulldogge. They are a bit taller than the standard English Bulldog. They also do not have all the health issues. We found Mr. Cowboy's dog at Millennium Bulldogges. Mr. Cowboy fell in love with Dallas, one of the females. She is a cutie. Mr. Cowboy loved her face and her body build. I really think that the Olde English Bulldogges look like a shorter American Bulldog. But anyway, to make a long story short, we emailed Millennium Bulldogges and Dallas had just had a litter of puppies. They were four weeks old. But they were all sold. Except for one, one puppy that was not really for sale. It was the stud's owner's number one pick female out of the litter. He offered the puppy to us. After a long talk with Mr. Cowboy and a lot of emails to Millennium Bulldogges, we decided to get the puppy. Here she is at one week old. Mr. Cowboy got these pictures and he wasn't too sure about her. He wanted a brindle, not a solid red dog. But this puppy was really well bred. So, we talked a bit more. Then Millennium Bulldogges emailed us 4 week old pictures. Just look at how cute she is. So stout and chunky. How can you not love puppies? I am not sure who that girl was, but the puppy is adorable. She also looks kinda laid back. I have my fingers crossed. Her best bulldogge impression. After more emails and more questions, we finally decided to buy her for sure. Mr. Cowboy is on a plane today headed for Ontario Canada, to pick up his Bulldogge. Here she is at eight weeks old. Oh dear, I think I might have to hold this puppy all day long. Oh that sweet face. I am sure I will be saying that when I am cleaning up messes on the floor. Sigh. But I do have to say, when I potty trained Bear, he only had one accident. So, I am hoping this puppy will be the same. We are thinking of naming her, Millennium's Southern Belle. Big Cowpoke wanted to name her Anna Belle. We will have to see. Her registered name has to have the name of the kennel where she was bred. It's what they do so you know where the dog came from. Mr. Cowboy wants to name is dog kennel either, Deep South Bullogges or Mossy Oak Bulldogges. I liked Deep South, it goes with the Southern Belle name. Anyway, wish Mr. Cowboy luck in Canada. I told him he had to take pictures of him and the puppy at Niagara Falls.
Right before Mr. Cowboy left, he asked me, "What is Niagara Falls anyway?" Oh my dear sweet innocent Cowboy. He has never traveled North before. Never farther north than Memphis. He has not traveled much. But, I am sure I sound the same when I ask questions about rodeo. I am clueless when it comes to that. I love him and his cute questions.
