JOHN!!! I just got your comment over on my blog and I am SO SORRY about your dear Mabel.... but it looks like fate may have placed another bullie in your life?! :) (I hope so!)
Paula! I too thought it strangeJackie's (the groomer's) friend is having her third and last litter with Martha soon... then wants to retire her to a "normal" pet home......
I wouldn't be going anywhere near the anal glands on that one..
Are bulldogs as fierce as they look?
no jessthey are soft as a sponge dipped in soapy water
John, please consider the life span of bull dogs. You have had a "whole lotta hurt!"
already processed that one Dot.....
Did you say yes?Hannah
no Hannah... I have said nothing more than "contact me nearer the time!"btw. we need to organize the flower show meeting soon.... it's been put off as Sylvia has been very unwell ( the secretary!)
Looking forward to it, just let me know when and I'll be there :)
Be strong John!! Welcome Martha!!!
Oh, dear, perhaps the third time will be a charm. I think you were wise to say 'contact me when it's closer to the time.' I've a feeling that Martha shall be be added to your menagerie, and her slobber will grace your Berlingo.
Meganit has all been a bit strange, cos I have been missing the ever over-the-top Mable quite a bit recently!
She's beautiful....how could you ever say no?
I'm sure closer to time you will have had time to process the pros and cons and will be better able to make a decision. Good idea not to leap feet first into another bully.
...well, if life gives you bulldogs.
I just knew you would comment x
Your heart is so big,Martha will fit in!Jane x
She's gorgeous - bags I be a fly on the wall when you mention it to Chris!
I hope you take her.....Gill in Canada
As someone who has just adopted a 12 year old lab with a life expectancy of.....about 13, and I know he will break my heart (again) I can honestly say only one thing to you John.Take her!
It is hard to open your heart, but I do hope you take her.
I may be a bitch myself, John.Are you sure you want to go there? Having one land on your doorstep is one thing. Going out with your chest pushed out to have your heart ripped out again is another.Oh, BTW, We kept the black cat... God's little gifts...
Comparing her to Lassie is a bit of overkill, I think. Of course, if true, Martha could be very useful should you ever fall down an abandoned well or get your foot caught in a rabbit trap.
Apparently you are meant to have a bulldog, John. Good luck and have a wonderful weekend! ♥
I think the dog snot remover award will go to you alone!
Oh, we all know where this is going. You old softie, you. Still, a year ahead...that's some serious planning. I'm impressed!
...and you of course said "yes", did you not, John?
And when the time comes, how is it that we all know what your answer will be?
The minute you asked her name, John, you've lost. BUT you'll gain a beautiful bulldog! You are amazing. Have a great weekend. Jo
You did say yes didn't you? You can't leave us in suspense until next year!Jo xx
Was it a yes? I hope it was a yes!
Do you have "MUG" tattoo'd on your forehead? xxxxx
Martha is a great name and she will fit in well with you all..... ( I so know it's a yes ! )
No - unless her current owner is prepared to pay you ongoing costs including vet bills, food, carpet cleaning etc.The current owner will have made this calculation themselves, and will be more than happy for you to foot the bill. I would ask her for £30 a week, on an ongoing basis, or (say) a £600 flat fee, and see what her "friend" thinks about that.Nx
We know that she is coming to live with you. Have you accepted it yet?
Oooooooooh please say yes xx
The answer is a resounding NO
Francien in Holland has another bulldog now!
So glad you've got some time to really think it through (or torture yourself with the decision)!
John - the name Martha, according to Behind the Name: Meanings means "lady or mistress". Looks like she's moving in then ?
It's hard to say NO when there's always a spot in your heart that says YES...She'll love it in the House of Gray :)
You attract bulldogs like I attract Golden Retrievers--I wonder which of us will have a new addition first??
No-o-o o John. Don' do that to yourself again. Get a mutt, they live long lives and are usually so loving.
Oh Lord indeed. Surely not.
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
