Meet Emma

Morning!!! Meet my new puppy Emma. She is an English Bulldog and she's 9 weeks old. We found her in Chicago and we just love her! We decided it would be easier on us emotionally to find a puppy before our older dog, Cocoa, passes away. Cocoa is doing really well right now and she has made it past the 8 weeks they gave her to live. She is still acting like her old self and we are very grateful. She will be visiting the vet for her cancer check this weekend and Emma will be getting her puppy shots. They love each other!

It's hard being a puppy. Very tiring!

She's a happy girl and loves to give kisses!

We have been looking for a while now for the right puppy for us. We tried going to Petsmart when they bring puppies in but because we can't put up a fence, they won't let us have one. It's a shame when there are so many homeless puppies and dogs out there, but those are the rules. So, I started looking into different breeds and the English Bulldog fits our lifestyle to a tee! She's so sweet and has few accidents, knows her name, she knows how to "sit" on command and is already learning from Cocoa where the pooping zone is. She is doing pretty good at night. I learned quick that when she wakes up barking, take her out to poo. LOL!
If you don't see me around much or I don't make it to your blogs as frequently, I am puppy training but hope to be able to visit while she naps (that's what she's doing now). Ok, time for my shower! Have a great day!!! Hugs!
Kim

Kim, Emma is so sweet! Oh my gosh! Aren't puppies wonderful?

I'm keeping your Cocoa in my prayers and hope her vet check goes well this weekend.

When our Sally had cancer and not much time left, we brought home Stella, an American Bulldog puppy. While there were some who didn't understand I think it was the best thing we could have done at the time for our family - including Sally and Stella!

It's interesting how the older dogs show the new addition the ropes!

Best to all of you!

Hi Kim~
Your puppy is a sweetie! Love that little face! My husband would die to have one! We have two dogs as it is, but bulldogs are his favorite! What a "keeper"!

Hi Kim,

Emma is so cute. I think she and Cash(my granddog) would make a cute couple. I will pray for Cocoa, bless her heart and yours!

I wanted to thank you for coming by and leaving such heartfelt comments. I haven't been blogging very much lately. I have a little time now so I thought I would catch up. You and yours are in my prayers.

many hugs,
Barb

Cute, cute, cute! When I was growing up my Mom always had one or two english bulldogs. She even had a litter. They are funny dogs with a lot of personality.
Have fun!

Oh, she is adorable! How funny that her name is Emma. If my dd, Emily, has a girl that is the name she has picked out, Emma Grace. If a boy he will be Thomas Jeffery.

Oh my goodness...what a cute little puppy. I think you were very smart to buy her now, instead of later. Good luck playing new mommy. : )

KISSES to your new little EMMA:)
She is just too darn cute!!!
It's good that she can learn from
Cocoa. That helped Jackson Brown to go outside and then he learned to bark and dig and eat poop(he has stopped that) and MANY other things from his big brothers :)
Have fun and can't wait to see more pics of Emma.
Puppy hugs..

Hi Kim,
Emma looks like a sweet little puppy. My son Tim is begging for a dog. I haven't had one in more than 30 years. It scares me thinking of all the work involved!

I hope Emma brings you many years of lots of love!

take care,
Dawn

English Bulldogs are my second favorite breed (next to my Boston Terriers)! :o)
