    Wink He said YES!

    Thank you to everyone who helped me decide what type of dog would be perfect for me and my partner. Through the help of this forum we decided on a bulldog. We didn't want a big dog, but also wanted something nice and chunky, not a little dog that would get blown off the couch if you farted

    We did some reading up on the breed and I bombarded my partner with cute bulldog videos (thanks youtube), then took him to the local dog show to meet some in real life. Partner has now given the official thumbs up to getting a bulldog pup, I now just have to save up the $3k needed and get the house ready. In the meantime I'm loving reading all the forums on good dog owner behaviour and training.

    It's still going to be about 12 months before we get the puppy but I just cant stop talking about it. Told my partner that on the day we pick up the puppy we will have to put newspaper down on the car seats in case I pee myself with excitement!

    Congratulations! mind you I am glad the breeds of dogs that I like dont come with that type of price tag - only from the topline working dogs. For that price make sure all the genetic testing has been done and the conformation and facial structure are nice and sound. Take your time waiting for the right nice healthy pup.

    Yeah its unfortunate that I have expensive tastes, I don't look for expensive things I just find things that I really like and then find out that its the most expensive option

    I know $3k is a lot for a pet but I told my partner that you can't put a price on love and since I'm paying for it he's not complaining. Also we don't want kids so I reckon in the long run I'm still getting out of it much cheaper

    Definitely a British bulldog, don't care if its male or female, want fawn and white colouring, have decided on the name Peregrin 'Pippin' Took, regardless if its a boy or a girl, because Pippin is a nice name for either and just like the LOTR charater a bulldog will be fun loving and playful but occasionally knock things over by accident and then look very sheepish!

    I like bulldogs. I used to meet a couple on our daily walk at the off leash area in my previous suburb. One was so fat that he had trouble breathing and even though he always seemed to want to play with my pup, couldn't run for more than about 2 meters. But he was still adorable and cracked me up when he tried to hump my leg - I blame the smell of cooked liver that always surrounded me when my dog was younger.

    The other one was joyful, lean and bouncy. Such a difference between the two.

    Yes very important to keep them healthy. Don't want it just becoming fat and unhappy.
