Foster Bullies

March 9, 2009

Ya’ll remember when DawgMom let Chico, our foster brother use the computer to tell a little about himself? Well, he found his forever home! His new hoomans think he’s awesome and sent DawgMom some pictures of him with his new sister, Maisey. He is living in NC not too far from us and having a great time in his new house. His new name is Buster and from the looks of his pictures, he doesn’t miss us at all. DawgMom says Chico aka Buster, was the best dog we could get for our first time rescuing and fostering a Bull Terrier. He was such an easy, fun dog to have around, he made the whole process easy on her and DawgDaddy. Check out how happy he looks.

The very next day after Chico aka Buster went to his forever home, DawgMom got an email from Miss Becky about a Bullie girl in the Knoxville shelter that needed to be pulled out of there by the next day or they were going to send her to the Rainbow Bridge! So, on Valentine’s Day, DawgMom and DawgDaddy head to Knoxville to pick her up. LizzyBelle is small for a Bull Terrier and has some “issues” She is a very nervous girl and when she gets stressed out, she chases her tail until she catches it! When she catches it, she bites it until it bleeds. Her tail is a mess! She has to be on medicine to help her and DawgMom has to make sure her day stays on the same schedule all the time or she gets all stressed out again.  It’s pretty strange, cause us Bullies don’t understand why she does it. DawgMom says she was not lucky enough to have hoomans that loved her right from the start and she just didn’t know how to deal with being left somewhere by herself. She has been in bunches of home and 2 shelters already! She is starting to act like a normal dog, but DawgMom said she feels like we take 2 steps forward and one step back with her. Whatever that means.
DawgMom ordered a “Bite Not” collar for her to wear when no one is around to keep an eye on her and it makes her look like Frankie-stein. We’re not supposed to make fun of her, but it is funny looking and it’s hard not to make fun.

 We’re not sure how long Miss LizzyBelle will be with us, but DawgMom says it will probably be a while. We don’t mind though, she is very sweet and likes to play with us even though she don’t really know how to play. Can you believe that? She don’t even know how to play! We’re teaching her though. Well, everybody but Darla Jean is teaching her, Darla Jean bosses her around too much, so she is not allowed to play with her yet. She loves our little brothers and sisters and even sleeps with them. We hope she will come around enough to find her own forever home, but right now, we’re not sure what will happen. Just when we think she is getting better and not going to mutilate her tail, something will happen and she will have it bleeding again. She even bit the whole end off of it last week when she thought DawgMom left her! We are trying to teach her how to be a Bullie and how to have fun and that she doesn’t need to be afraid of things, but it’s hard work! Makes us all very tired.

Anyway, thought we would give you a few updates and show you some pictures, now since that weatherbug thingie on our ‘pooter says it’s 70 degrees outside, we’re gonna go play for a while. We’ll be back to our blog later.

Little brothers and sisters….

February 8, 2009

can be a real pain in a Bullie’s butt sometimes. Remember how I told you we live here with little brothers and sisters, well I thought I would introduce one of them to you. See when DawgMom and DawgDaddy got married back in June of 2007, all of us became a family. DawgDaddy had 6 of us and DawgMom had 8 of us. We became something like a Doggie Brady Bunch. So I’d like you to meet Cissy. She is not the youngest, but she is pretty little, so I guess she would be like Cindy’s counterpart, their names are alike. She’s bratty like Cindy too.

Pappy says: Here’s the story of a lovely lady, who was bringing up 8 very lovely pups….

Darla says: Pappy!! Hush up! Feather’s tryin to tell a story!

Pappy: I’m tellin’ a story too, didn’t you hear me? “Here’s the story”??

Cissy says: Ya’ll knock it off! Feather is tryin to introduce me! Sheesh, ya’ll really are Bull TerrOrs!!

Feather says: Please ignore them, they are sooo rude! I’m gonna tell DawgMom not to give them any chicken feet tomorrow

Anyway, I was trying to say, when they got married, we all moved in together and all of us got along really good. Cissy is a little black Chiwawa, Chiwaawaa, Messican Taco Bell dawg, and talk about bossy, man is she ever! DawgMom says it’s because she came from such a bad past.

 DawgMom got her out of the animal shelter in D.C. and she was really sad. She was really scared of everybody and everything, she would scream, shoot a turd at the same time and try to bite anybody that came close to her. She was REAL skinny too and DawgMom says her first stoopid owner was mean to her.  That’s how come DawgMom named her Cissy, cause she was a sissy about everything. She was even afraid to go poop, she would start shaking real bad and start whining and when she finally couldn’t hold it any longer and did poop, she would run back in the house and hide under the bed shaking for a long time, like she was afraid she would get in trouble or something! She was afraid of everything. She’s not anymore though. DawgMom has had her for 6 years now and we think she is about 8 years old.

She's beggin, like always

Now, Cissy thinks she is the boss of everything and everybody. She even bosses DawgDaddy sometimes, but he just laughs at her. She bosses me alot because I like to do my head-thing at her. I bow down so I’m real close to the ground like she is and shake my head back and forth at her. It drives her crazy! I think it’s funny and take off hucklebutting all through the house just to make her chase me. She’s like a piranha on crack! All you can see is big white streak (me) with a little black and white flash (Cissy and her teeth) running behind and she sounds like an over grown bumble bee when she growls and snarls. It’s is just too funny.

Pappy says: Till the one day when this lady met this fellow, and they knew it was much more than a hunch…

Darla says: Will ya KNOCK IT OFF! I’m trying to hear Feather!

Pappy says: that this group would somehow form a family, that’s the way we all became the Doggie Brady Bunch!

Cissy says: That’s it! I’m tellin’! MOOOOOMM!

Well that’s just great!  Now thanks to Pappy’s singing and teasing everybody, then Cissy screeching for DawgMom, we have to get off the computer and go to bed! Thanks alot ya’ll! I was going to tell everybody about  Mango Minster,  and go see who all was entered in this neat bloggy doggie show, but I can’t now! Ya’ll just wait, what goes around comes around and I’ll get ya’ll back!

Pappy says: Doggie Brady Bunch, Doggie Brady Bunch, that’s the way we all became…

Darla says: STOP! IT! ALREADY! STOOOOOPPP!

Cissy says: and they say little dogs never shut up! You ask me, it’s those terrOrs that never shut up!
