one year ago...

I [really] wanted a puppy.
DJ wanted an english bulldog puppy [none other would do]
I thought he was crazy, but whatever. 
I bitched and moaned until I realized he wasn't changing his mind compromised
so I went along with it...

first there was massive amounts of research and scouring the web...
then there were emails...

THEN one year ago was a life-changing day for DJ & I... we drove about an hour from our house to visit with a family in CT who had one English Bulldog puppy left for sale.... our hearts were stolen the minute we met little Oliver... 

the whole litter of puppies were super sweet and just adorable, but when they got let out to play one came over and sat right in DJ's lap... he was just content being with us while the others ran around the yard... as luck would be - that was the one puppy that was still for sale, and the one puppy that stole our heart...

I mean, how could you  not fall in love with this face...



we got home and had this email waiting for us...


we just knew we had to make it work, and we did - and I couldn't be happier with our sweet baby boy.... 


I love my little partner in crime....

what a snugglebug...
[and I clearly love sweatpants as captured by these photos...]


I can't believe we met our little Ollie only a year ago, I can't imagine life without him now... and though I will rarely admit it - DJ was right, an english bulldog was the best fit for our lifestyle and my "wants" in a dog [sweetness, cuddles, lovable, etc], but not just any bullie - our sweet OJ [aka "the juice" - and yes that is his middle name on his AKC registration, I shit you not].  so here's to many healthy years ahead of us [and hopefully soon, allergy free] and our sweet baby boy.
sweet baby Oliver...
thanks for the butt-wiggles, the kisses, the cuddles
I love you all the time
[even when you try and eat my bras and think my shoes are chew-toys]
 you're the sweetest baby boy and I can't imagine life without you!

OMG. What a face. I love those bullie blue eyes and his little scrunched legs. Looks like he's wearing leg warmers.

I feel the same way about my pups. Except for the dog hair, I could live without that ;)
