    You know, i didn't think I was ready. I just went and looked for the sake of looking, not expecting to really go ahead and adopt, but as soon as a saw her I knew.

    you'll be ready again.

    I love animals they are amazing. Ever watch what an animal does when you are really sick or depressed? They are the best.

    She's a beauty!! slept through the night. Guess I'm up to 2 hours of cardio a day now She had an accident in the spare bedroom, but I think it's just from the stress of a new home. She's barely moved since our 1hr walk this morning. I think she's gonna be a great friend.

    Crate training is the best and most effective way to housbreak a dog...

    Not at all...I remember how you felt when it happened. I'm sure that you feel like I do...I dont know if I'm ready to deal with that loss that comes way to soon with animals. Besides I'm not sure with things in my life that have changed since we had a puppy last, that it would be fair for the dog. We are home very rarely now and I dont have near the time to devote to a dog. These considerations must always be considered!

    Yeah, those bulldogs are damn expensive! My roommate a couple years back paid $4000 and on top of that was at the vet well over a dozen times in the first 6-8months with various health problems.

    Cute little fvcker but he was a real assh0le.

    Thank you, she is gorgeous. I would have loved to get a pic of her up and about, but she's a typical Grey and wants to sleep all day. She's fresh retired from the racetrack, so she's seeing the world for the first time; it's really amazing watching her react to everyday things like stairs and cars!!!! 2 days and I already have her pretty decent on the leash. A couple of accidents inside. She seems like she doesn't want us to see her go pee. Started the crate training though and giving her bacon and butter when she goes outside so I think I'll have her housebroken in no time!!!

    Wow, she's a big girl Big! I was expecting a little puppy lol. How's she acclimating to her new home? She's a great lookin dog, I really like that color. I bet she's a joy to watch run. Those Grey's in full sprint are quite a sight.

    yeah, she's not quite a puppy but still a teen, just 2 years old. She's getting better at being a house pet by the minute; it's just really stressful because she's used to a kennel and a racetrack, so it's a bit of a sensory overload. She's definitely fast, but she can't shake a stick to my last Grey. My last one still holds speed records and win records at a track in Kansas.

    No worries, I'm patient and don't like to share. I'll wait until she's done

    Btw, my post about "white is the best color for that breed" was aimed at the bulldog. (Don't want you to think I was raggin on your new girl)

    yeah, we started last night. She cried when she saw it, but we've been coxing her in and out with treats. Next step is a kong with frozen dog food. I'll take it from her every time she takes it from the kennel, so that she can only have while in.

    Yes they are. I currently have four bitches and bread a liter once every year and a half and have them shown in conformation. They're like little fat people and have a very high opinion of themselves.

    Unfortuantaly PB doesn't interest her. So far just butter, bacon, and now wet dog food.

    You're probably lucky. Every time I get the PB out for myself and not her she gives me the "sad" eyes.. lol

    She loves Tripe too (the natural kind from a pet store, the processed human kind is bad for them). We mix it in her food sometimes and she devours it. Our vet recommended it and everything I've read says its great for them. Might be worth a shot if she's reluctant to eat dry or as a treat sometimes.
