He Snores

He snores. He is overweight. He kind of smells. He makes funny noises. He is lazy. But he is so cute. P and I are in the process of adopting an english bulldog. His name is Meatball (not our choice) and he is 2 years old. He is funny, quirky, and loveable. We have a 7 day trial period that we are in to see if it is a good fit for us and for him.
He is not my 1st choice for a dog, I would like something more active that we could take with us to go running or hiking, but P has been asking for this dog for a really long time. We made an agreement that we would get a dog when we got out of debt, and we are out of debt so this is our reward.
We have had him for about 24 hours and he is already attached to my husband at the hip. We are going to take him to the vet this week to get him checked out for any medical conditions that we need to know about before we decide.
He is a really big boy (Most English bulldogs are 40-50 lbs, he weighs 69.) and I can think of a hundred reasons to say no to this dog. But I am a woman of my word and he is growing on me and getting a little piece of my heart. What woman can say no to an overweight snorer?

I knew right away it would be a dog. dogs are the best. we have an old lady. i ran her to the ground and now she can run no more. she sleeps. she eats. and repeats the same pattern day after day. i believe that is called 'the dogs life'.

have fun : )

We've had a bulldog for a year now, and if you keep him, he will change your life in a million wonderful ways! You can't take him jogging, but the laughs, licks, pouts, snores and snorts will all be worth it!
