Pet Peeves! - Today's Subject : Deli "Encounter"

Pet Peeves will be an on going post for me. It may at times have nothing to do with Ozzie or bulldogs etc! Just simply things that I find annoying times 10!
The other day I had the opportunity to go to our local Shop-Rite which is a grocery store found mostly in the northern New Jersey area. They were in the midst of their famous January can-can sale which always guarantees a madhouse! It was early and I was hoping to get some cold cuts for lunch. I approached the deli counter to find that they were serving number 21. "Hmm" I thought, "not bad, doesn't seem crowded!" As I pulled a number from the red ticket dispenser I ended up with number 41. Yikes, 20 more people to wait on! Where were they all! Probably cruising the store until their number came up!? Since I could not think of an alternate meal for lunch time I decided to stick it out there. So I set up camp armed with my cell phone and weekly circular. It was early Sunday morning so I called the only …


English Bulldogs have the capacity to sleep the sleep of the dead! They are in such a deep delightful slumber it makes one wonder what they must be dreaming! ( most probably a giant bowl of kibble! ) There have been times that I have come home and the little guy still snores away unaffected by my arrival! I have found this video of Teddy who's owners do everything to try and wake him up until they are "saved" by the bell! Take a peak but be quiet!
Teddy the English Bulldog jumps for the doorbell….and that’s it.

BD Pup Videos for Your Amusement

Just wanted to share with you a collection of You Tube videos that I came across that has endless bulldog puppies etc. at their cutest. I wasted about a half hour this morning amusing myself with them! Confirms that bulldogs are so darn cute they are addictive!

Wanted: One Mess of a Dog!

Imagine this ad:

Wanted- Creature that drools endlessly on floor clothes etc. Must have experience with omitting gas on cue that can clear a room. Skilled at shedding year around a plus! Snoring at high decibels required! Deep face wrinkles that require constant cleaning and can smell like dirty water in the bottom of a garbage can desirable!

It is like folks that now own Bulldogs run this ad in searching for a dog!? That is exactly what ones gets with the Bulldog. He comes by all these traits honestly! You may ask yourself why would anyone want a dog with a resume like this. I can answer for myself at least. When you look into that smushed in face and those big brown eyes they just own your soul! They are there to keep you company and amuse you daily! At your side is the place they need to be! As I write this Ozzie is sleeping at my feet and tooting up a storm so I need to make this short! I found a poem on another bulldog blog that I would like to share with you! It express…

Bulldog Eruption and Frozen to the Bone!

This past weekend was a bit stressful to say the least. The only good thing at the end of the day was that Ozzie lost 2.5 pounds....the hard way! I had made an appointment last Monday at the vet to get his left leg checked out. He had been limping for a couple of weeks mostly when he got up from a laying down position ( yes his favorite position!) . Our vet , prescribed an anti-inflammatory called Rimadyl. She felt that there was nothing torn or broke and that it was more due to the orthopedically challenged construction of a Bulldog. Along with a chondroition glucosamine supplement he would improve. I started giving Oz his medication and noticed that the next day he had terrible gas! The kind that would clear out any room in 2 seconds flat. I know that these dogs can be prolific farters but this was extremely odorous! Thursday night found Ozzie tooting away and I stayed up late with him to make sure there wasn't a need for a midnight potty run. Friday afternoon we we…

2010, Year of the Bulldog!

Happy New Year to all. Here is hoping 2010 brings an abundance of all things good for you! I don't make resolutions, they are usually a set up for failure. Though I try to keep a good attitude for the year ahead and look at it as an opportunity to try new things or simply improve on last year! The holidays were hectic. My dad was visiting with us and there was a lot of shopping, cooking and eating etc.! Ozzie enjoyed all the extra attention! He reveled in wrapping paper and chomped on boxes ( this boy loves cardboard )! On Christmas day he must of had an extra 2 pounds of ham from his Uncle Freddie who unwittingly played into his sad sack begging routine! We are now back to normal and it's kind of quiet around here! Not to mention that the weather has been a little chilly to say the least! We are suppose to have another Artic blast of cold this weekend which will send wind chills diving into single digits! Ozzie doesn't seem to mind the cold too much! He goes …
