Hey friends it me, Kingman checking in today. Today was the day I knew was going to come sooner or later. I have been around this place called a garden center half my life just wandering around, picking flowers, and taking selfies! I am a huge fan of selfies. Every time I came my Dad would sit down and talk to Dianne so she would know everything about me, what I liked, loved, and what I was used to. Let’s just say I like to eat, I love treats, and I am used to vet visits, having my wrinkles cleaned, and a Sunday bath is a must. I like to walk, but I love car rides. I like dog food, but I love steak to. I have a ramp I go up and down, and a suitcase filled with my things and a bag of food that is my favorite. My Dad packed everything, wrote lots of notes, sent some baby pictures, found my puppy shot records and he even did a Coat Color DNA Test to see just how I got to be this fabulous. Well today my Dad brought me again and this time I got to stay. My Dad cried big tears, and so did I. Sometimes life takes a wrong turn and changes have to take place and we have to adjust. I am going to find a new family now that will love me like my Dad did. And wow did my Dad love me.
4/15/18 Update: This has got to be one of the softest and sweetest Bulldogs I have ever met! He has a gorgeous coat with eyes that will suck you right in. He is 7 years old and acts like he is 4. We picked up Kingman from Puckett’s and had not gotten back to 75 when we had to pull over. Kingman was trying to get in the back of our Tahoe from the backseat. He wanted something that was back there! Well, I opened his HUGE duffel bag of all things Kingman, and handed him his stuffed raccoon and he was beaming from ear to ear! He sucked on his baby all the way home and was so proud to show it to us over and over again. Such a sweet boy!
When we got home, he went to his “holding area” with Trudy to settle in, but he did not want anything to do with decompressing! He pranced out, checked out the whole house and all the other dogs, chased poor Dixie the cat and settled in on the couch with his raccoon, once he had shown it to everyone. He walks like a champion and loves to go outside. He adores Brian and follows him everywhere he goes, just like our Callie does. Two little shadows, one on each side! Lucky man!
Kingman eats great (he is allergic to chicken!) and has awesome manners. He sits on command and knows the word “no” (which he got to hear as he was marking the pool table legs!). He loves to drink water and is a bit on the messy side here! He is housebroken (except for the few marking incidents, which is a given in our male-dominated house), but given his liking of water, we shall see how he does while we are at work all day. When I left him this morning, he was sitting on the couch with Boomer and Callie, leaning over the arm and staring out at the backyard daydreaming. I got my first kiss from him this morning and I was so thrilled! He is a precious, special boy with a love of life, people, and most other furries (cats are for chasing!). His smile will melt your heart! I expect that an applicant will be matched to him soon, so I will enjoy him while I can!
