I have been gone for some time due to circumstances beyond my control. I have not been able to post on my blog and I have missed it a great deal. I don't know if I have any followers but if so I am sorry that I have not been here. Many new and exciting things are going on with me. We now have our 2nd new puppy...so now two American Bulldogs in our home. They are approximately 12 and 15 weeks old. The female, Lyla is the oldest and weighs approximately 33 lbs and the male Remy weighs approximately 29 lbs. He is a beautiful white dog with brown patches over his eyes and three on his back. She is a beautiful creamy beige color with a black muzzle much like a boxer. He has light green eyes. They have quite different personalities but both are a joy to be around. I am having a great deal of fun with them. They are quite a challenge also, but I have never been so happy in regard to dogs in my life.They will be attending obedience classes and I hope the husband and I will be able to build agility pieces in the backyard for the dogs to work on in the back yard. They need a great deal of entertainment or they become anxious and destructive. While long walks are okay I think they need a great deal more than that to be truly happy in their environment. They can sit, give paw or high five in lyla's case, she also does down which Remy has not mastered. They need to be taught sit/stay and down/stay and very importantly, they need to be taught to walk more calmly on the leash. They are not the most cooperative when it comes to potty-training either but I have faith that when we master more behaviors they will follow with better potty behaviors too.
