“My Mom Bought Our Dog While She Was On Drugs.”


That is what my son told his first grade classmates and his teacher during share time three years ago.

Let’s take a moment to let that soak in.

It was a proud day at our house. Share time often is.

Okay, movin’ along…

Unfortunately, he was right.

No, they were not the illegal kind of drugs, but rather pills a doctor had given me to help me relax during a visit for a procedure.

I am a wimp.

After the procedure, my husband and I went shopping nearby. We stumbled into a pet store (which I would never visit sober). And there, in a pen, was the most adorable puppy in the world. He was an english bulldog and he melted my heart.

Apparently, I HAD to have him. I do not really remember much of this visit… But what was my husband’s excuse? Well, I think he is the one who couldn’t resist him. Could you?


We paid an exorbitant amount of money for him. I was shocked at how much when I recovered later. You know I would have haggled. But he was worth every penny. And, um, they told me he was a miniature bulldog. You decide…


I swear he grew overnight. His name is Ollie. He is my sweetest baby. He slobbers. He snorts. He drools. He farts. He snores. He is the most well behaved of us all!


Who is the fur baby in your life? Hopefully, you remember when you got him/her!

  1. Ollie is adorable. He is the reason I started reading your blog. I have a bullie too. I have really been enjoying your blog.

    • Thank you so much! How old is your bulldog? We love Ollie. He is allergic to everything, though. Do you have that problem?

      I think they are the closest things to sweet little monsters that you can get. He is so comical!

      I love meeting another bulldog lover! Thank you so much for commenting!

      Have a great night!


  2. He is gorgeous! I have a spoodle or I think in the USA you call them cockapoos. He is my baby, spoilt rotten. They are priceless, they bring so much joy and smiles to the household.

    • Thank you so much!

      I love cockapoos! There is a breeder in our town and her website is such eye candy. They are adorable!

      Thank you so much for commenting about my baby! And thanks for sharing about your own baby! I love it!

      Have a wonderful Sunday!


  3. aw…so adorable! I ove bulldogs…and have to stay away from pet stores because I can’t bear to leave the critters there!

    My cat is basically part bear cub, part raccoon, part clown. He’s round and fluffy and essentially a sandbag on short stumpy legs- 24 pounds of six-toed love. I got him through craigslist when we were looking to add another cat into our household (my brother-in-law now has his mom, who will be staying with us for a month or so this summer. I wonder if they remember each other? It’s hilarious because she’s tiny and shorthaired- but otherwise they share a lot of physical traits).

    here’s my boy: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_h2pLMs8nyn8/TSoe5VDVuiI/AAAAAAAAAls/dzIhgU168e4/s1600/southwardfatcat.jpg

    • So cute! I love a big fat fluffy cat! 24 pounds! Oh my goodness! I know that cat is giant! How cute! I hope he gets along with his mama!

      Thank you for the Ollie compliments! I think he is pretty cute, too! ; )

      Have a fantastic Sunday!


    • Thank you!

      We LOVE pugs around here. Have you checked out the pug items on Modcloth? They have so many cute pug things! I have always been jealous of the pug owners, because they have such a cute selection!

      Thank you for Ollie’s compliment! He appreciates it! : )

      Have a fabulous day!
