Four Years Old

Or 29 years old in human years! That is how old Buerly is today!!!  I cannot believe that it has already been four whole years.  It seems like just yesterday we made the long haul to go see the little guy.  Hubs and I were so excited the entire drive even though it felt like we drove through a tornado (we actually did see a cop car get struck by lightening on our way).  I was also very anxious because what if we didn't like him.

We met the breeders at a half way point in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel.  The second they set Bandit (Buerly's original name) down in the grass it was love at first sight.  He immediately pounced and attacked Hubs shoe laces.  Hubs and I didn't even have to talk about it.....we knew that he was coming home with us!

Buerly slept in my lap the entire drive home.  I just 'oohed' and 'aahed' over the littlest things he would do.  You would have sworn that he was a baby the way I carried on.  Hubs would just look over and smile at me as I babbled on about how cute he was. 

I hope you all are ready for a picture montage because that is what you are going to get! :-)
(WARNING: Picture overload)
This was the night we brought Buerly home.  Look how little he is in relation to Hubs leg!!!
 All tuckered out from the long, exciting drive!
 How precious am I?!?
 Curiosity killed the cat.....good thing he is a dog!
 Screw the basket of toys.....time for a nap!

Are you still reading after the flood of pictures I posted?! I warned you! ;-)


You will always be our baby bulldog!

Obviously we treat our furbabies like they are our kids.  They are family and will always be a major part of our family! 

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!  And happy May!  :-)

I'm new to the blog world and found your blog through the others I really enjoy reading. I can't tell you how much your post made me smile :o) My boyfriend and I who are currently saving up money right now to get engaged and married are also OBSESSED with bulldogs! We can't wait to have that be our first dog. Your pics were amazing and your puppies are so sweet :o)
