A Growing Family

I intended to sit down to brag a bit about our fun Vegas adventures over Thanksgiving, but after some email conversations today, I feel I'm ready to share some exciting news!

Will and I decided years ago that I wouldn't physically carry a child due to the risks.  I have CF, I don't want to push my luck more than I should. (This doesn't mean I'm against people with CF having babies, I say "you rock", its just not in my game plan).  So, we talked about adoption and always knew that is the way we would want to build a family, should we decide we are ready to have a child.

Well, that day hasn't arrived!  Sorry folks!  We are spoiled and love our life, just us two!  We have nephews and a niece that bring more joy to our lives than we could ever imagine.  Plus, we have the most awesome bulldogs in the world that bring laughter and love in our home and make us smile even on the worst of days.

So, why am I talking about a growing family?

We have decided that we are ready for another bulldog! Yep - we want THREE!!!  We have done the whole get a puppy from a breeder thing, so we want to rescue.  There are sooooo many dogs that are turned into shelters because they have health problems or people just don't want them any more...I mean, who could do that?!?!  Bulldogs are a common breed where people think they are just so cute and cuddly, but don't realize that they are HIGH MAINTENANCE!!!  Sadly, many end up in shelters, and if they are lucky, a rescue saves them.

So, before Thanksgiving we submitted our adoption application to the Georgia English Bulldog Rescue.  We've had a phone interview, house review, vet check among other things and have been approved to rescue!!  We are now discussing which little fella will be joining our family.

We want a boy as Stella is one of those dominant females (lol).  She gets along with females but boys are better for her.  And well, Sarge, he likes just about anything.  So, we are anxiously awaiting our little boy's arrival!!  We've been discussing what dogs are available, their health issues/special needs and whether they like other dogs.  We have narrowed it down to one and I am praying that all works out and we get to bring him home soon (he is currently in a foster home).  I look forward to sharing more news soon!  Wouldn't it be the greatest Christmas present for us and the bully to have a new home!!  I just can't contain my joy :)  Stay tuned...
