I think I've cried more tears that any human can. This little bully boy had something special. He was the happiest, grumpiest old man.
I'm struggling without him, so in hopes to help heal my heart, I want to share some pictures and memories of my precious pup.
The day we went to meet our boy was December 7th. He was just as cute as could be and we fell in love immediately. At the same time, he showed us his grumpy side and picked a fight with Stella, right there on the spot. Oh my! But, that didn't deter us. We loaded him up and brought him home.

We've had good days and bad days with his bulldog siblings, but they eventually learned to tolerate each other. It may not have been love, but there was like some days.
My little buddy was a mama's boy. Wherever I went, there he would be. He'd sit on the bath mat while I was in the shower, follow me in to use the restroom, and sit/lay right at my feet while I used my vest. Most of the time I thought it was sweet, but it also caused me to trip over him many times. I'll miss that.

If you've ever been to our house and were wearing shorts, chances are you experienced his love to lick. This boy would see skin and he wanted to lick it, especially if you just put lotion on. He was always told to "stop licking!!"
He was a pretty mellow fella. Never in a rush. I'd take all three for walks around our yard at camp, and he was always dragging behind, taking his sweet time. But, when that boy was happy, you sure knew it. He wiggled from his nose to his toes. It was precious. And every once in a while, he'd get super excited and bounce like a bucking bronco. We would just laugh in delight that the grumpy old man was so happy.

I'm happy to know that the last words he heard from me were: Nighty night pup-pups. I love you.
