You Big Chunk of Meat

Belle, our Olde English Bulldogge has grown up a lot since we brought her home. She was so tiny and smelled so good. I love the new puppy smell. Now, she is a bit different. She is big and a bit stinky. As one of my son's good friends has said, "Belle is a Big Chunk of Meat!" And that she is. She is 65 pounds of solid meat. She also is emotional. She gets so sad when ever Mr. Cowboy leaves. She sits in that green chair and watches him drive away. Then she gives me the "look". The look of, "I don't like you, why do you make my daddy go away" look. I just had to laugh at Belle's back rolls. And I love how she sits like she is a human. But she doesn't love me. I am just the one who feeds her, takes her for walks, scratches behind her ears. I am not fun at all. Not compared to Mr. Cowboy, who will run and play with her. Cowpokette tried to make Belle feel better with some scratches, but the look just got more pathetic. Really, life with me isn't that bad, I promise. Cowpokette even gave Belle some hugs. I am not sure if that really made anything any better. But Belle was sure sweet about it all. Belle is the best kids dog ever. She just loves the kids, just not me. I guess someone has to be the disciplinarian. And that someone gets to be me. Come on Belle, put on your happy face. Belle's response, "This is my happy face."

That face is to die for! She is just too cute.

My dogs are the same way though. They are momma's boys through and through.

That has got to be one of the most adorable baby pictures I have seen!!

The pictures where she is watching Mr Cowboy leave then turns to look at you it's like she's saying, "What Happened? You let him get away." :)

Too cute!

She sure turned out to be a handsome animal! When I got remarried 5 years ago, my dog defected and became my husband's dog. Kinda hurt my feelings at first.

Awww Belle, you're just so precious! I'm having a little jealousy problem with Diesel. He seems to like the husband more than me! I caught the husband referring to him as "his" dog the other day.

That was a really fun post..hahaha Poor Belle, she is in love, and not with you.

My husband tries like heck to make our Corgis love him best..no, they sit at my feet with those big brown eyes staring at me with love in their eyes. He does all sorts of things, and tries to bribe them. Nope...doesn't work.
He feels your pain!
