It all started with a friend’s text message last June with pictures of the most adorable 5 year old male bulldog with the question, “Do you want him?” When I saw Gunther’s picture that fateful day I knew without a doubt he was the bulldog for us.
My husband has always had a love of Mack trucks which transferred to a love (and desire) for his own bulldog. For the last 2-3 years he would come home with ads for bulldogs, and we even almost adopted one from a rescue organization but it just didn’t feel right. This time was different.
Gunther has become the star of my Facebook page. Friends will specifically request for more pictures of him to be posted. They ask if he has as much personality as it appears in the picture and he does! In many ways he is the typical bully: stubborn, sleeping, snoring, loving, slow-walking, ball-loving, stuffed animal-stealing, curious, gassy, snuggly and jealous.
Most of the time he is very laid back and enjoys reclining on overstuffed chairs. He adores going for rides and outings and this laid back nature switches to a higher gear. When taking trips to truck shows, the local pet stores or home improvement stores he gets all the attention. Taking naps with my husband is a favorite pastime as well as sitting by my feet while I cook hoping for a few bites. He loves playing ball outside with my step-son and chewing on ham bones in the yard while I garden. He has truly become a part of our family and we can’t imagine our home without him!
