  6. Watch out don't they say owners end up looking like their dogs or is it dogs end up looking like their owners. Winne looks like she is putting up with all the limelight rather well. She's not on the sofa is she?

  7. Not normally into bulldogs but yours is just the cutest one.

  8. That looks like a very contented dog...not to mention her new owner!

  10. Like 'coulda shoulda' I'm not really a pug/bulldog person, but she really is one helluva cutie. Of course she's staying.

  15. Is that John or Winnie talking? Looks more like you have passed HER probation, John! ;-)

  16. It is often said that dogs frequently resemble their owners and this photo clearly supports that theory.

  19. Uncanny, even down to the facial hair.

  20. I'd love to have her for a probation period too. Just send her my way for the next 10 years if you don't mind. She is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aaw! What a cute couple you two make!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, yes!

    In my imagination there was only one other possible outcome of what you darkly hinted at: That you found her a home as good as yours. I have said it before - months ago, and I still can't believe it, you converted me to bulldog, a species I used to avoid looking at. All those Grand Canyon grooves, dear dog in heaven. How do they face themselves in the mirror every morning? Yet, Winifred is a real beauty. Just shows you "eye ... beholder" bla bla bla. It's true. Who had the casting vote? My adored Albert?

  23. with faces like that how can you not keep either of them!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Of course she is !!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You old softy! I would have done the same! I suspected she was eventually coming to stay when you mentioned her ages ago!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just read all the way back to when she arrived. How could I have gone so long without knowing what shenanigans you are up to! I think she should stay. She loves you. She has soulful eyes. Adorable.

  36. Her face says: "Oh, YES, I am."

    ReplyDelete
  37. Winnie is a WINNER!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Judging by her smug look, I think she already had that figured out. ;) And *HAHAHA* I just read Deb's comment.... hilarious!! You might have been on probation yourself, Mister. *giggle*

  43. It is true. Dogs DO look like their owners!!!

    Of course she's staying. DId you REALLY think otherwise? Meanwhile, we are bringing home cat #5 from the shelter this week...

    ReplyDelete
  54. I really don't think you look anything alike. But I like you both.

    ReplyDelete
  55. You two big hunks of love. I am so doing a happy dance. I wasn't a bulldog fan either but since Mabel I have been head over heels in love with them. I just didn't know what I was missing.

    Thank you to Chris for letting her be a part of the family.

    I'll take a hug and kiss. No not from you John, from Winnie. Ha.

    ReplyDelete
  56. She's so bloody gorgeous! I want to squish her little squashy face!

    ReplyDelete
  57. It is wonderful that she has convinced you to keep her.

    ReplyDelete
  58. You two look like bosom pals to me....

    ReplyDelete
  59. Ha! I KNEW she was staying when you first wrote about her!
    Don't you just love know it alls! LOL!
    She is lovely!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I was too busy watching BAKE OFF
      Cheeky bastard

  62. I believe the probation is the other way around. Me thinks she's allowing you to stay. Oh, which one is you in the photo?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think Winnie says you are a keeper, you big mush.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That is good news, indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It's no surprise to read that so many comments above have stolen my thunder, but the question is - will SHE start to look (even) more like YOU? Or maybe your faces will start swapping! This is going to be so interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  66. It is you on the right ..... right!! I think maybe you were separated at birth, so lovely that you have found each other .

    Matching tashes and jowls, she HAS to stay :-)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Priceless photo! So glad she's part of the pack, although she pretty well was from the start.

    ReplyDelete
  68. John!!! I am so happy for you! What a beauty she is!!! I am grinning from ear to ear. Nothing like the love of a bulldog.

    ReplyDelete
  69. we're all rooting for - good gods this is more nerve wracking than the show stoppers. fingers crossed she stays xx
