Man .. it has been a LONG time since I've logged on to here, well over a year if I'm not mistaken. First off, I just want to thank each and every single one of you that helped me in the past. You essentially convinced me, well informed me, to take a step back and do some serious research and look in to a reputable breeder rather than just jumping the gun with my puppy fever. I now have the cutest bulldog ever (yup I said it) and she's been the best decision I've ever made in my entire life. I mean really she is my life now, that's my baby girl, she's so unbelievably spoiled. She's now 1 year 8 months old, I got here just at 8 weeks. I know I'll have to attach a bunch of pictures haha. In all seriousness though, thank you guys, you really were informative and beyond helpful. I hope that all is well with you and your bulldogs, I'm sure they're all getting ever more adorabull throughout this past year or so. I plan on browsing through the past few pages just to see the pics!
Miss Tiny has been absolutely fantastic, she's been relatively healthy (lime disease, a cold or 2, hurt her back knee once) but I've been very thankful, she's been great. I leave her in the house to just roam around and she's great - no accidents, no chewing of anything, nothing. She's so well trained. If you tell her "sit" "down" or "paw" she response instantly without hesitation. Get this, she even LOVES the water .. I take her swimming almost weekly now, paddle boarding, kayaking, she loves hikes. Who would've thought that a chubby little bulldog would be so active? Even though she's active, her by far favorite thing to do is sleep and cuddle. Of course she sleeps in the bed with me so she's usually posted up either on top of my pillows or on my head snoring the night away.
I did actually come here for a reason, for some advice. I'm looking in to getting Tiny Oprah Raymond (yes, I gave her a middle name) a little friend. I believe I'm either going to go with a French Bulldog or another English Bulldog. Basically, I was looking for everyone's opinions on regards to compatibility between the 2 breeds together and if I should be looking in to a Male, Female or if there's not a preference really. I've actually reached out to a few breeders already (and by a few I mean about 10) with interest but I haven't pursued anything yet to this point. Please feel free to be blatanly honest again, I really respect the knowledgeable posters that are on here, you guys are the best.
I just wanted to reiterate a big THANK YOU to all of you again, without you guys I most likely would've never gotten my little baby. I hope that all has been well for you and your pups throughout the past year or so.
I've got a ton more pictures I can share (literally thousands haha) but this is all I've saved on my work computer
