Tell it to me Tuesday!

Today we experienced one of the last warmish waning days of autumn. Enjoy it Nala, they are far and few left before winter rears its ugly head. This Saturday November 1st the MABR BullyPalooza is scheduled to take place at the Wonderbar in Asbury Park. It looks like the weather is not going to cooperate. With rain and wind and temps in the 40's predicted,it may be a wash out!

Lets hope for the best and appreciate the good weather while we have it!

Merchandise Monday

This weekend was mostly devoted to painting the living-room...several times! Seems that we lack the ability to choose the color of paint that suits our home! We are now on our third color and hopefully our last. We started off with what I thought would be a warm orangey autumn like color...that turned into a frightening Jack-o-Lantern orange! Yikes back to Sherwin Williams paint store...there we selected a sunny yellow that would lean towards the gold side of the color spectrum.....nope! It was a rubber duckie yellow that required sunglasses just to enter the room. Now we have purchased a very subtle green called Shagreen......that "sha" work. Today we were able to prime the wall with white primer to cover up that awful yellow and during the week we will get the new color up on the walls! What a struggle it is to pick a out the right color paint! Just beware that the swatches in the paint store are deceiving! They must purposely do that so you will return for more paint after each selection gone wrong! Or maybe we are both color blind! Certainly Nala must be wondering what the heck is going on. Since dogs aren't the best in distinguishing colors she must think all the colors we pick were just fine to her!

"Looks okay to me!"

So I said last week that I would feature each Monday a bulldog product, so here we go. I found this cute garden flag that could be hung out for the upcoming winter season. I must say I love my garden flags and if I can find one with a bulldog I am having it!

Here is the link for purchasing it :


Halloween is this Friday so hopefully we will have a bunch of trick-or treaters at our door and one tired bulldog by the end of the night! Pictures to follow!

Have a good week and peace to all!

I think every Monday I will post a bulldog related item that I have found on the internet or shopping elsewhere! After all if you love bulldogs you can't get enough of that bulldog stuff!

Right Nala!? "If you say so? Though I prefer bullie sticks myself!"

Sunday Renovations and Ear Revelations

Sorry I have been away from the blog-o-sphere world of late...just not making time for it, my bad! So we been going through a deck renovation and it's almost complete! We are about 90 % done. Well maybe 85%! Plus they have to install two gates one on either side of the yard. We had these make shift gates that were eyesores but effective in keeping Nala in the yard! Nala just loves the carpenters who come everyday. She has to give them her usual wag-a-wag greeting and get petted by them. I wonder what she will think when they are done and not part of her morning ritual?! 

In between all that Nala had an ear infection. She has been pretty good since she hasn't had one since April.I noticed she was mopey the other day and not her usual peppy puppy self. When I went to pet her head by her ear she moved quickly away and on further examination her ear definitely seemed red and smelled funky! To the vet we went and sure enough a yeast infection in both ears. The vet cleaned them out and put in some Mometamax and give her a shot of hydro-cortisone Dexamethasone to help treat inflammation and an anti-fungal drug to take orally. She is doing much better now and after the ear med treatment I have to be very dilligent about cleaning her ears. Bulldogs are just more prone to ear infections. Below is a YouTube video to cleaning your bullies ears. It was just how the vet showed us and hopefully we can keep her ears in good shape going forward!

In the meanwhile we are thinking about Halloween and what we should be for the trick or treaters this year! Since she hates anything on her head I need to think of something simple. Any thoughts?

Have a good week!

Peace to all!

Keep those ears clean people!

Nala supervising!
