Southern Belle

Mr. Cowboy got home last night at 5:30. He was attacked by two very excited boys who could not wait to see their new puppy. But before I get all carried away with how very excited the Cowpokes were, let me start at the beginning. Canada. Mr. Cowboy drove into Canada. He was questioned by customs why someone from Louisiana wanted to come to Canada. Mr. Cowboy said he was getting ready for them to strip search him. They had him get out of the car and asked him some questions, then they let him go. Strange. But I guess you can never trust those Cajuns, huh? Mr. Cowboy drove past Niagara Falls and went to Janie's house to get our puppy and to see some other Olde English Bulldogges. She had a few at her house and a bunch at some friends houses near her. That guy is only 10 months old. His Dad and our puppy's Dad are the same. So, I am sure our puppy will look similar to this when she is 10 months old. Next is a female, I am not sure anything about her, but I think Mr. Cowboy said she was a year and a half old. I think she is pretty. Then Mr. Cowboy got to see a young male. He is a year and a half old. I think he has a huge head. And you can see the deck was wet. There was also snow in the yard, brrrrrr. I do not miss that white stuff. Then Mr. Cowboy got to see a female named River, have a litter of 12 puppies. At the time of the picture she only had 9 of the puppies out of her. Mr. Cowboy said the majority of those were brindles. Then Janie told Mr. Cowboy that she is going to spade River and give her away to a good home. Mr. Cowboy volunteered himself as the good home. My goodness, I can't send that boy anywhere? Janie did not give Mr. Cowboy a definite answer, but I am kinda hoping River finds a good home. I am not sure I want three large inside dogs. After Mr. Cowboy finished visiting the dogs, he headed over to Niagara Falls. Forgive his photo taking skills, he is a bull rider not a photographer. Mr. Cowboy said it was cold and rainy so he didn't take any self portraits of him self and the dog. I was really looking forward to that. But he did take some photos of the puppy when they got to the hotel. She is a stout little thing. But they went to bed and got ready for their plane trip the next day. They flew home to three very excited children. Mr. Cowboy got Belle out of the truck and the kids attacked her with hugs and kisses. Cowpokette even got in on the kissing. Brodi was not too sure about Belle, but he doesn't get excited about much these days. The boys were so very excited. I think Belle was a bit scared. But she played and played and played with the boys. She is a little aggressive. She will growl and bark. She defiantly is nothing like my big sweet Bear dog, that I miss so very much. The boys played and played with her. Then they had to take her over to Paw Paw's house to show him their new puppy. I am sure glad the kids have all the energy to play with Belle. Brodi and I will just sit back and watch all the craziness. Cowpokette just wanted to love on Belle. She wanted to pet her and kiss her and try to pick her up. Cowpokette was so happy to have Belle sitting next to her. Belle just wanted to take a nap. She was pooped after playing all evening. Big Cowpoke took a picture of me with Belle. She is a really active puppy. She doesn't like to be held too much, especially if there is some playing going on. But when the Cowpokes went to bed, Belle finally calmed down. Belle has been a bit calmer today. We played outside a lot this morning. She has not had an accident today, yet. But I take her outside about every twenty minutes. I even got up with her last night at 2:15 am to let her go potty. It's like having another baby. We are taking her to the vet this afternoon and then we are going to buy her some toys. She is a very active pup.

Oh goodness, she is SO cute! I love the white "blaze" on her face! The kids are obviously thrilled!

Crossing the Canadian border can always be interesting....sometimes they ask you the strangest questions. I feel like, uh- do I like like I'm smuggling drugs or something??? ;) But I guess we're lucky they are being so thorough!

She is so darn cute! I just want to squeeze those saggy cheeks and plant a big kiss on her nose. Nice pup.

We have never had problems entering Canada, but coming home has been a whole 'nother story. Fun times, standing along the road, with construction crews watching, while all of our belongings get laid on the road and searched and they push and prod into all of the mud on our truck. 45 minutes worth of fun on one of the San Juan Islands by Seattle. LOL.
