  10. Uh oh, if you meet her you will love her. This breed of dogs has such a kindly demeanor and expression. Look out, I see an addition to your family.

  13. I don't know how old she is John, but my decision to adopt a senior has not been an easy one or a very practical one. I adopted my boy at 12. He sweet and gentle, but he cast cost me a LOT of money is various surgeries and other vet bills. I also didn;t anticipate how often I needed a dog sitter or the "senior" behavior that is troubling him right now. It was and is a big effort and in hindsight I would have just kept fostering and found him a different home. But then again, I'm a softie and didn;t think any one would want an old dog.

  14. John, if you get her, check out this video and see if you can teach her one of these tricks that "Gabe the bulldog" can do! :-)

      They are delightful characters
      And much more trainable than welsh terriers

  15. Sending you a virtual slap on the back of your head. Then a pat on the shoulder. I think the heart wants what the heart wants, it's not always good for us.

  16. From all the comments, it seems a done deal.

  17. You have a heart like soft butter. Which is a lot of your charm.

  18. HA, and we all know what THAT means. Looks like you're gonna have another dog.

  19. A much more flattering picture than August 4th.

  20. As I said before, no, no, no. However you will listen to your heart and Poppy ( my youngest grandchild's name) will become yours.

  21. I have had two difficult dogs one after the other. Each had entrenched traits which were impossible to correct. It was bad, sad, stressful and guilt ridden. You are probably more able to give Poppy a good life than most but should you? Think very hard about what your life will be like as well as hers.

  22. I think you're sorely tempted. I would be too, but consider the others and the way things are at home at the moment, and know she will be able to fit in relatively smoothly before your heart whizzes past your head.

    It's so hard when you know there's room in your heart for another but a little voice in your head is talking sense and reason. Good luck with your decision. :-)

  23. We all know where this is going to end up - and where indeed Poppy is going to end up. But if that's where it's going I don't 'blame' you one little bit.

  24. You have to remember that I did reject the previous bulldog
    So I will think about all the issues very carefully

  25. With that face ... your heart will melt John. Poppy is such a sweet name. I can just see her up at the Ukrainian village & bosoms !

  26. You goddamn crazy sonofabitch ...... I fully expect to see her waddling around the streets within a few days

    1. Me the crazy one?
      Who was yelling
      " where's your bulldog ?" like a loon around the village streets a few hours ago?

  27. You mean no-one else has been interested so it's back to St Francis of Trelawnyd?

  28. Pulling at the heartstrings. The word is out in the Universe, and has your address. Come one come all, there is always enough love to go around.

  31. Dont do it value your sanity and bank account, dont listen to the others they don't have to pick up the vet bills

  32. Look forward to hearing your assessment.

    Good luck, John.

  33. Alleged human, John,

    A dog is always a welcomed addition to the home.

    Look forward to your reply. Great pawst! Thanks for sharing!

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

  34. You can never have enough dogs?
    Maybe you can never have enough OF dogs.
    But in the tiny (very chaotic) space we live in, one bouncy Labrador is definitely enough!
