Everyone knows that good things come to those who wait. And now I know why. My good thing is my new dad, Steve.
I have been looking through the approved applications for a perfect family just for me for some time. Kids make me nervous sometimes, so I had to weed out families with kids. And sometimes women make me uncomfortable, so I was looking for just a dude who loves Bulldogs and here he is… Steve!
Steve has adopted several Bulldogs from rescue and just this week, his boy Shotgun left for the Rainbow Bridge at the age 14. I decided I was going to help Steve and Steve was going to help me. It was a win-win for both of us. Steve showed me some pictures of Shotgun on his phone and told me I had some big shoes to fill. I let him know real quick that I was the one for the job.
Steve lives on a farm and he plans to make me a “farm hand.” Not really sure what that means, but I am up for the challenge.
Well, that’s all for now. We are off to the feed store to buy the donkeys some food, the goats some pellets and the ducks some grain. Steve also is going to buy me some new T-shirts, so my skin doesn’t get blistered when we are working the cattle.
Life is good, rescue is great, but I am out of here. See ya later at a rescue event, but never on the rescue’s “Needing a Home” page!
Special thanks to volunteers Matt and Katie who braved the below-freezing temperature and scary roads to save Ted E. Bear from a local shelter this morning. He’s said to be 2 years old and his skin is in horrible condition. The skin on his face is cracked and bleeding, and he’s pretty much bald everywhere else. Please keep this guy in your thoughts. Hopefully, we can give him some relief ASAP. We’re certainly grateful Matt and Katie were able to pull him prior to the more dangerous weather coming in for us this weekend.
2/16/21 Update: I’m feeling much better after my bath and nail trim. I have a warm, comfy couch to relax on while the storms blow through. I even got a new Batman T-shirt! Looking forward to feeling better each day. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
2/24/21 Update: Ted E. Bear is such a sweet boy! He had a great time relaxing this past week in a warm home with a comfy bed. He heads to Dr. Larsen’s this week to get checked out. He’s been so patient as we’ve worked on his skin. And he’s secure enough in his masculinity to wear pink.
2/28/21 Update: Say hello to Mr. Ted E. Bear— the teddy, bully you’ll ever meet! We picked up this young fella on Wednesday and he has been a delight!
3/30/21 Update:TedTalk 3.29: Today’s Ted Talk will cover some burning questions my fans have asked.
How cute am I? Well that is evident. I am the cutest. I have velvety soft white fur. I also have a very interesting coat – it’s pink with very cool black spots. Dr. Larsen says this is because I am a very special white bulldog who often inherit this trait. My FM is giving me amazing baths and Vitamin E oil which may lead to fur re-growth but for now, I get to wear fashion-forward t-shirts in the sun.
Do I like other dogs? I have spent time with bulldogs and am currently residing with a very high-strung little Morkie terrier. I have done great with all dogs my size or smaller.
What do I like? I LOVE love, belly rubs, honestly rubs of all kind.
How do I do on a leash? I honestly could be a show dog. My FM says I walk better next to her than any dog she’s ever had. I will walk or trot right by your side. Look out dog show world, I’m ready!
Am I loud? Nope. I am a fairly quiet, thoughtful type. Of course, naps don’t count. My snore is legendary.
Am I playful? Well, hello?! I’m only two so I have some spunk and energy spurts when you throw a ball my way or take me out to the backyard.
Please send in questions for next week’s TedTalk. I’m all ears!
5/4/21 Update: Today’s TED Talk covers the Patio Paw-ty. In case you missed me yesterday, I just wanted to let you know that I crushed it.
