Dogs

Cats get a lot of love around here, which isn't to say dogs aren't in our hearts. Chris has been pushing for a bull-dog going on three years. I feel a little bad, like I'm denying him a little, wrinkly puppy-friend. I hope that someday soon we'll be able to afford one, but in the meantime here's just a picture. Click here to see more canine inspiration. Just a funny photo for your Sunday afternoon. Are you having a relaxing weekend?

i have always wanted a bulldog too! i'll agree with you though, dogs can get a bit expensive. they also need tons of attention and care. but they are definitely worth it!

i hope that you and chris will be able to get one someday, though!

It is unfortunate that dogs are so much more high-maintenance than cats. I would LOVE a little Boston Terrier, but we live in an apartment and I am not too stoked on the idea of taking the little one out to pee on the side of the bushes lining our sidewalks at 5am. Until we get a house with a yard, I must content myself with our two lovely little kitty cats.

I have wanted an english bulldog for years! But between the cost of getting one, and the chance of health conditions. It isn't in my budget yet either. Someday!

That's simultaneously terrifying and hilarious! Aren't bulldogs one of the breeds that have lots of health problems, though?

we have both an english bully and a french bully and i can't even begin to tell you how amazing they are. they do tend to be costly, even after the initial investment in buying one, as ours had 4 surgeries her first year, but i wouldn't trade her for the entire world! she definitely completes our family!

I can see why Chris wants one.

Bulldogs are great dogs. You just need to make sure you keep the wrinkles clean.

Aww he's gorgeous! Once you get a dog, you won't know how you lived without one. I love mine like a child :)

You should look into adopting a bulldog mix! Cheaper and better for a little lonely pup that needs a home. We have a bulldog/boxer mix...our sweet Lola. Plus, less health problems than a purebred!

Coffee came out of my nose! A fun surprise for a Monday morning!

Why is the dog's head under water?! There is nothing funny about the picture. It looks like the dog is being abused.

Why is the dog's head under water?! The photons not funny at all. Looks like abuse.

Anon, I wouldn't worry about it. Dogs can be underwater for short increments of time. While my husband and I do not have a dog ourselves, I grew up with them and know after throwing countless balls into lakes, that they're cool with it and just happy to be in water. This isn't my photo, I don't know the history. Hey, while you're here, here's even MORE pictures of dogs under water:

I guess that was just my first reaction. I can see after reading your blogs that you love animals. Very cool blog, by the way.

Orchid Grey said...

Anon, I understand. I think it's easy to have a knee jerk reaction like that when you're passionate about animal welfare. I assure you though, we love animals and I would never post something that I myself wasn't comfortable with. With a more ambiguous image like this, I like to give it the benefit of the doubt, the dog doesn't look miserable, ya know?

On a separate note, thanks for commenting back, and thank you so much for reading! I really appreciate that you enjoy my blog.
