I just got here to meet my new dog. I'm really excited


On the way home.... So sleepy :sleepy2:






OK we've arrived. We're not quite friends yet, but we're working on it :wink:




One things for sure; Mommy sure does love us both :love1:

OMG the expression on your daughters face just says it all! I hope everything works out for you and Bully. He looks like he needs some rest. I'm sure it will take a little time for him to adjust being shuffled around the past weekend but I'm sure he'll settle in. Looks like he's got a nice loving forever home now.

Great pictures. The two dogs look like they will work out just fine. Just keep an eye on them for awhile. Now for your daughter... She looks like Bully is hers and there is no way she is going to give him up. Love at first sight.

What a beautiful, huge smile. And, the one of Bully sleeping w/ his head on her lap, priceless.
FYI, I wouldn't put more than 2-3 lbs. on him.

Shawn, I'm surprised you say that. He looks so THIN to me. I can still see Harley's ribs, but they're the exact same height & she has at least 15-20lbs on him. Please forgive me for saying so, but I think he looks a bit unhealthy at this weight. Why do you think I should keep him this thin? Thanks (for everything)

I think he could stand to gain 10-15 pounds myself.I know they are supposed to be small built and have an all together build from our dogs but Shawn his ribs and spine are all sticking out.You dont even have to feel them you can see them.He doesnt look healthy which surprises me you say only 2-3 pounds.

Well, don't be surprised. A dog that only weighs 58 lbs. can gain 3 lbs. and you won't see the ribs at all. 10-15 lbs. would be WAY too much for him. He shouldn't weigh more than 63-65 lbs. tops.

Mosley was weighing in at 82 lbs. I dropped him down to 78 lbs., only 4 pounds and it made a world of difference. Montana only weighs 63 lbs. and Messiah only weighs 68 lbs. and he's a good bit bigger than Bully. I'd take him to the vet and see what he thinks. But, our vet down here thinks he's good at about 60 lbs. for his height. I do think he's a little too thin, but not more than 10 lbs for sure. What you should really do is just try to put a couple on him, see how he looks, then decide from there if he should gain any more.

You've seen lots of pics of my dogs, they're not too thin, but I do keep them on diets. You're supposed to be able to see their first three ribs, I believe. Look at those last couple photos of him, he's not THAT skinny that he's unhealthy. Just a few pounds.

Absolutely priceless! I agree with everyone else, he belongs to your daughter. I wish you only good things for both your new bully & your family. Those shots of him sleeping with his head on her lap just are soooo heartwarming. Congratulations to all.
