Hi Everyone,

It’s been awhile since I posted any new information, as I was waiting for something interesting to tell you all about. Well, last weekend my mom and dad took me on a very long trip down to Indian Trails, North Carolina to participate in the 2015 Bullie-Que Convention.

We left home in New York City at about 3:00 AM on Friday morning and my dad drove the almost 700 miles in about 12 hours. We arrived at Indian Trails, NC at about 3:00 PM and headed straight off to the Convention gathering. I couldn’t believe all the bulldogs that were there with their guardians from all over. I now knew that this was going to be a fun weekend.

I was amazed to see that there were 175 Bulldogs and their guardians there. All the bulldogs were able to participate in a delicious brisket buffet. And it was delicious!!!

On Saturday morning we were all up real early since my mom and dad were also registered vendors at #bullieque2015, for their new business Mydoginthewindow.com. They worked really hard to set up their display stand with a demonstration of the product and brochures to hand out. My folks tell me that it was a really great day for them and their business. They said that they made a lot of new friends and sold many My Dog window adhesives.

So everything was really going nicely until I became “difficult”. I started to growl and bark at the other dogs and it became a real distraction. At first my dad put me in a fenced-in pen, aka Jail, but I refused to stop barking. He was left with no other alternative then to take me back to the hotel for the rest of the day!

As Daddy says, “Somebody’s gotta love the crazy ones!”, and they sure love me. I am now really sorry that I was so rude and I promised my mom and dad that next time I will be a real little princess.

My folks also told me that it was great running in to their friends from mid Atlantic Bulldog Rescue organization. !

Until next time…

Hi, I’m Matilda

Hi Everybody,

My given name is Matilda, but more often than not I am called Muffy.
In fact, sometimes I’m even called Muffins and sometimes I’m called Muffy Moo- Moo.
Oh well…I guess it could be worse…

It actually really makes my giggle inside when my mom and dad come up with silly names for me, but I honestly know it’s because they love me so much. When I bark back at them, I’m actually calling them some silly names as well.
Hmm… I wonder if they know that?

This all began about four and a half years ago when I was so lucky to be rescued by my mom and dad. My dad Nick and my mom Amy and adopted from Mid Atlantic Bulldog Rescue when I was at the young age of only 14 months old.
That day, I was given a second chance on life, and I couldn’t be more thankful!

Since that day, my life has been a truly happy adventure!
I consider myself a very fortunate “person” to have been adopted by such wonderful parents, who love me more than I know how to express.
Yes, I’m treated just like I was a real person, maybe even better!

My parent’s treat me, or maybe I should say spoil me, with lots of love and snuggles. They take me almost everywhere they go, except when they go to work.
When they’re home I’m always at their side and even when they relax to watch a movie they let me enjoy the movie with them on the couch.

Today was a special day for me.
Today we had as we had a blizzard and so it was actually a snow day for my parents who stayed home from work and they spent the entire day with me.

First, they let me go on the hunt for “creatures” that I thought might be hiding under the snow. While I was looking for them, all of a sudden to my surprise … Poof… a Jolly Ball lands in front of me.
We then played with the Jolly Ball for over an hour. Boy was that fun!!

After that we all went inside and I was treated to some pizza for lunch.
Boy oh boy, do I love me those snow days…and do I love my mom and dad!

Stay tuned for more…
