Day 10

Welcome to day 10! My blog hasn’t seen this much activity in years.

This picture is not a selfie but I like it anyway. I love my relationship with Stevie. She makes me laugh numerous times a day with her antics and silliness. She is one of the most human-focused dogs I have ever known. She knows when we all need a little extra TLC.

Dispatches from the Swamp – the ‘Stevie Ray’ edition

In August this year we welcomed Stevie Ray into our canine family. After much thought and discussion we decide to get an English bulldog puppy. We found a reputable breeder and picked out our puppy. We went to visit her 3 times between the time she was born and when she came home with us. She has been an amazing puppy!

She adjusted to life at The Swamp very well. She only cried the first night she was here and then after that she has been excellent at night. In the beginning the only dog who tolerated her was Grace. This made life a little difficult for Grace, as Stevie wouldn’t leave her alone. Eventually Sawyer started to play with her and they have been best buds ever since. Jesse is not the baby’s biggest fan. She is determined that he is going to love her and she hangs with him as much as she can.

I love you Jesse!

As puppies go, English bulldogs are not that difficult. They are not high drive, which really makes a difference. Stevie is quite content with several rounds of bitey face with Sawyer, stealing balls from Jesse when we play fetch every day. She does look very proud of herself strutting around with balls in her mouth!
