It's Time! It's Time!!

Hi Everybully!
It's me...Vivi!!!  Momma said I can write the blog today because she's been busy with some things around the house lately!!  Something about the well & water??  I dunno, it doesn't sound good though & some really nice city worker guys will be here next week to do a "hook up"...whatever that means.  All I know is Momma is busy, so here I am...

Ok, so today Momma took me to a show!!  I love going to shows!  Momma says I am such a good girl at shows & it's cuz I know if I am, I'll get a treat!!  I'm no bullydummy!!  It's a good thing I like going to shows because Momma says it's the time of year for a lot of shows here!!  Yay!!!  I'll be going to many of them with my half-sissy Bailey!  We get along really well!

Look, we must be related...we sleep the same weird way!!
It was pretty warm here today, even in the early morning.  So here are our friends in a pool cooling off after the show!!  How smart are they?!

We are going back tomorrow so maybe I'll have more photos & stories to share!  Otherwise there's always next weekend...and the weekend after that...and a week after that....and then two weeks later....!!

Hope everybully is enjoying the long weekend!

Special Thanks To Urban Bulldog!!

Katie at Urban Bulldog blogged about a really cute bulldog wallet that she got at Marshall's last week.  Sure she's in Colorado, but I figured I could take the chance that they'd have one here in Minnesota, I mean, what's it gonna hurt??

There is a Marshall's in downtown Minneapolis, so I headed there on my lunch hour last week.  Sadly, there wasn't any of the cute wallets but I decided to head to the housewares section thinking maybe just maybe I'd find some sort of bulldog treasure....knowing most likely there wouldn't be...there never has been before.

But this time there was!  Yay!  My very own bulldog garden gnome...which was ironically another blog post by Katie last week!  How funny!

So thanks Katie for MAKING me go to Marshall's!!  Now I have my own bulldog treasure!!

PS-If you haven't clicked on either of the links to Katie's blog yet, you MUST look at today's post!  It's a really cute video of her bully Sherbert!!!

What's with the dragon flies?

Yesterday we had a storm roll through & for whatever reason it's brought about a whole colony of dragon flies!  I mean, they're everywhere.  I was at the store (Target of course) when the storm hit & when I was driving home, new Fred was getting dive bombed from so many dragon flies it sounded like rain!  I drove through at least a good half-mile of them!

When I got home, they were all over the yard too!  So see, they're EVERYWHERE!  Weird.  Anyone know what this means?  Perhaps an early & long-lasting summer??

I got the bullies a toy while at Target yesterday.  Howie seemed to like it very much!

Happy Weekend Everybully!

This week has been busy once again & I'm very much looking forward to spending time with Steve (he's off yay!!) & the bullies!!  Not looking forward to the laundry that must get done too, but until the Laundry Fairy finds our house, I guess it's still our responsibility...dangit!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!  If you have great weather, enjoy it!  If you have rain, just stay inside w/your bullies & relax!

New Neighbors

Aren't they the sweetest?  We named one Bob & he couldn't have been bigger than my hand.  So cute trying to hop around!  Kinda reminded me of a bulldog the way he'd hop!!  (Yep!  I just said a bunny was hopping like a bulldog!  LOL)

Steve found Bob as he was cutting the grass & I helped him shoo him away so he didn't get hurt....only to have Steve find all of them when doing the weed wacking!  We decided to give them bread...but a piece fell on one...err...Bonita... & none of them moved!

Sadly, I haven't seen Bob or any of his family since Sunday night (yep, I check on them each night before bed).  I'm thinking they've moved on to another little nest..

To All apologies....

Umm...yeah, I take responsibility for the recent change in weather...remember the following statement from the post made on April 25th: I'm so in love...with this spring!!  Ugh!!  I can't even tell you how fantastic it has been (& I'm fully prepared for it to make a huge turn now that I've posted this!)!!

Well since it snowed 4 days ago....I'm now going to see how this works....

It's super fun for me to buy Powerball tickets & not win (I'm fully prepared for it to make a huge turn now that I've posted this!)!!

Ok...let's see how that goes Mother Nature!!  GIVE ME BACK MY SPRING!!!

National Police Week 2010

This week marks a national week long remembrance of police officers killed in the line of duty; a very unfortunate coincidence in timing of what happened a week ago.  Last year I posted a blog on National Police week & it gave me chills reading it again.  It all is still so true & unfortunately something, that once again, I felt just last week.

National Police Week honors fallen heros.  While locally you will see officers standing guard at memorials & wearing the black band around their badges; in Washington, D.C. there is a week-long schedule of events where thousands of officers from all over the country attend.  The names of fallen officers from the past year are added to a memorial, there are seminars, vigils and a memorial service.

To be in D.C. & see such events must be quite the sight.  For many, I know this week doesn't impact them; but for police, it's a week they honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  Their fallen brothers & sisters.  Since Blue Line Bulldogs gets its name from the police world, I think it's very appropriate to spread the word of National Police Week.

To the fallen, you will not be forgotten.  To the Thin Blue Line, thank you for your continued service.

Happy Mother's Day!

Before I was a Dog Mom:
I made and ate hot meals without being watched every second.
I had unstained, unfurred clothes.
I had quiet conversations on the phone,
even if the doorbell rang.
Before I was a Dog Mom:
I slept as late as I wanted
And never worried about how late I got to bed
or if I could get into my bed.
 Before I was a Dog Mom:
I never stepped on or tripped over body parts.
I didn’t know what a bully stick was and never touched an esophagus.

Before I was a Dog Mom:
I had never been peed on
Pooped on
Drooled on
Chewed on
Or pinched by puppy teeth.
 Before I was a Dog Mom:
I slept all night without sharing
the covers or pillow.
 Before I was a Dog Mom:
I never looked into big, soulful eyes and cried.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn’t stop a hurt.
I never knew something so furry and four-legged
could affect my heart so deeply.
Before I was a Dog Mom:
I had never held a sleeping puppy
just because I couldn’t put it down.
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was well.
I didn’t know how warm it feels inside
to feed a hungry puppy.
I didn’t know that something so small
could make me feel so important.
 Before I was a Dog Mom:
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being
A Dog Mom
