Dorothy Mae (left) has been adopted by a wonderful family and former Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue adopters. She will be so spoiled by her family. Word is: she’s already got her mama wrapped around her paw. She will also get to play with all her fur siblings all day long, especially her furever brother Cletus (formerly Amos Lee).
So, I joined rescue this week. Bet you thought I was going to say I joined Weight Watchers, but you can keep your jokes to yourself.
On Sunday, I hopped on the Bulldog wagon train with a couple friends and off we headed. Our first stop was the vet’s office, so I could tell Dr. Larsen all about me and the fact I sure have a hard time breathing.
I got so excited on Sunday when the time came to hop aboard the rescue wagon, I could hardly catch my breath. I was huffing and puffing, and my tongue was turning blue. Good thing for me the conductor of the train knew all about Bulldogs and was able to calm me down and cool me off. If not for her, I’m sure I wouldn’t be here to tell my story. I must admit it was scary.
Other than being a little fluffy (70 lbs), I have an elongated soft palate and I am going to talk to Dr. Lay about his surgery for that. The rescue lady told me that once my palate is fixed, I’ll be able to breathe without gasping for air. I am all for that because bikini season is right around the corner, and I have already thought about which one will look best on me. So ready people for the new me!
5/16/21 Update: Dorothy (or Door-Fee, as we call her) moved into her foster home just a few days ago, and she’s doing great! She gets along with the six other dogs in the home, and she’s working hard on her weight-loss journey. She does her calisthenics and is reducing her calorie intake. We love her so much ~ she’s already got Foster Pops wrapped around her paw.
5/31/21 Update: Door Fee is suuuuch a sweet girl. She gets along with all other dogs and just wants love from humans. Her personality is starting to come out, and we love it! She paws at us if she’s sitting with us and we’re not petting her. She also is starting to play some. When we’re not looking, she will steal one of our shoes and take them outside to play. Not destroying them, just playing.
6/7/21 Update: Dorothy is just as sweet as they come! And her playful side is coming out more & more. Imagine waking up to this smiling face every morning!
6/15/21 Update: Dorothy is doing great in her foster home, and she’s excited to announce she’s lost another pound! She loves playing “bitey faces” with our big red bear.
7/5/21 Update: Dorothy loves wrestling with her foster sister, but it’s all love between the two of them.
Dorothy’s mischievous side is coming out more and more. She’s starting to chew on things, such as the remote. She also has unplugged appliances
and hidden shoes.
7/12/21 Update: Dorothy is doing great in her foster home, and is down to 61.2 lbs! She just needs to lose about 5-6 more pounds, and she’s breathing so much better already!
We found out she doesn’t like fireworks. She doesn’t panic, but she just doesn’t like them.
This girl is a gem. Sweet, playful, a little naughty, and so much fun to have around! She’s doing well with house training, she gets along with all other dogs, she avoids those who fight, and she seems do do well with cats, too. Any family would be beyond lucky to have her!
7/20/21 Update: Dorothy continues to do great on her diet and is waiting patiently to find her forever home. She doesn’t ask for much, just a soft place to sleep and a comfy blanket. She’s as sweet as she looks!
