Say Hello to My Little FRIEND...

So after much, much, much thought we decided to get a dog. YES we did. And this time we get to keep him FOREVER! So we had to put a lot of thought into what type of dog. Main reason for that is because my kids are TERRIFIED of dogs! So we couldn't get a little yapper...and personally I can only handle so much of those. We needed a bit of a lazy dog. One that wouldn't go barking at the door every time someone came over. Sooooooooooo...we got an English Bulldog! AND HE IS ADORABLE! We named him Charlie. Yes I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name Charlie. We've had a few pets named Charlie and Tucker's teddy bear is named Charlie. So we or I REALLY like that name. Here are a few pics of Charlie.

Oh yes and if anyone has advice on potty training him...let me know A.S.A.P

Thanks for the invite! We have potty trained many-a-dog. Trick is to take him out the same door every 2 hours at the most, depending on his age. Tell him the same phrase in the same tone every time IE "go potty...go potty" until he does then when he goes really praise him and go right back inside. Sounds easy right? Good luck!

He is sooooo freakin' cute!! I love his name too. Potty-training advice...hmm.. all I can say is he is just like a kid. You have to keep him on a schedule. Keep him in a confined area until he is older and I agree with the 2 hour rule. But seriously, the better you are with a schedule, the faster he will potty train. Be hard on him now so you can enjoy him later! He is darling!!

He sure is a cutie! I think it is so funny that your kiddies are afraid of him, cause it isn't me. When it gets warmer we will have to go on a dog playdate at the park. Were your kids scared of Teek?

O.K. this makes more sense, I read your thing on facebook where you wrote you were "potty training Charlie." I was like who the heck is Charlie...got it. So the dish saga. I am calling you this week to come and pick it up. I am so sorry, I swear I haven't missed them at all I just know they are probably so annoying to be laying around your house. Lets get together soon.

Charlie is way too cute! He makes me want to get one just like him! (this is anna by the way) But....I would freak out the first time I saw him rub his rear end on my carpet. I would have to kill the cute little thing!

Cox Famn Damily said...

okay, first...I was reading Anna's comment under my name going, "did I already comment on this? I don't remember even reading this post yet..." ha! Then I saw it was Anna. Anyways...good looking bulldog, Sar...seriously. You got good advice about potty training. How is it going? I am so jealous...I want a dog so DANG BAD!

Hey, are you going to cut his nuts off??

Koni Frost said...

Charlie is my favorite name too. He is just SOOOO adorable... I'm glad you're at a place where you can KEEP him without taking out a second student loan! He looks like a lot of fun.
