I've been keeping my daughters English Bulldog Opal, they have 3 other English Bulldogs but she is the "baby" of the family so she got special care. Have you ever tried to take a bulldogs picture who knows when the flash is going to go off? This is the best picture I got.
Then I decided to hold her still, bulldogs are rather stout but I did it. Those are my feet BTW.
The next morning it was slightly foggy, I've always wanted to take a picture of the red Persian cat who accompanies the bichon on his morning rounds. Well since we have the bulldog she is part of the group. BTW the cats name is Paris after Paris Hilton cuz when she was a kitten she thought she was just SO cute. Paris is now a tomcat. Paris thinks the male Bichon is his mother, for some reason the Bichon puts up with it though he's not fond of cats and would love to chase them if I let him. All but the red Persian?
I know this one is terribly blurry but the mama cat Meanie has decided the lab is "her" dog and goes with him on his morning rounds. She's there rubbing under his chest.So Opal the bulldog was walking down the sidewalk when I was washing out an old dog crate and watering my houseplants that I sat outside. So I tried to get her to sit by the flowers because she looked so cute. No dice, so I got the bichon, he will usually sit and stay but if the bulldog is going to follow me so is he so this is all I got.
This is Opal in all her glory, mama, daddy and her human brothers and sister are within 20 miles now, we've been getting regular updates and they even had to "talk" to her on the phone. It's been a good visit. I know she misses them because every time I come back to the house in the car she has to go out and see if maybe they might be a little slow and getting out of the car too since they've NEVER left her anywhere and certainly not for this long. Well they are home and Opal is gone, they said once again I'd fed their dog too much and she'd gained weight (that happened the last time I kept a bulldog for them), I don't understand my dogs aren't fat. Mugsey and Dispatch are wandering around like they are lost. I don't know if they really miss her, I know she was so very glad to see her family. I saw a commercial from Oregon about people without pets and how having pets mellows people out and puts a whole new aspect in their lives. I know this is true. I sort of miss Opal myself and all the snuffing and slobbering and running like banshees are after her. I swear the bichon was trying how to teach her how to do the bichon blitz but maybe that was my imagination?
