Adopting Our Bulldog Lilly

February 28, 2017

Just look at Lilly’s sweet face!  We are in love!  We adopted our bulldog last week so I thought I would tell you all about it!


My daughter was on Food Network’s Chopped Junior last month and she said if she won she was going to adopt a bulldog! She did and sure enough we adopted a bulldog!  She has wanted one for years and she mentioned it over and over during the show!


I have to thank Kerry for actually finding Lilly for us!  It was the craziest thing. I called Kerry and during the conversation mentioned looking for a bulldog. Kerry is a master at the internet and while we were talking she was finding dogs left and right and sending me links.  I really liked two dogs from Angels Among Us Pet Rescue and they happened to be located in Metro Atlanta!  Previously I had been checking out two other rescues but I never moved forward with them.  I researched Angels Among Us and submitted an adoption application that afternoon!  I was so impressed with their application process and later that day someone called me to go over the application and within a day they were checking my vet records.  They are very organized and they have a team for everything.  The foster mom for Lilly called us very quickly and we set up a meet and greet.  We met Lilly and fell in love!!!  She was perfect for us and I like to think she thought we were perfect for her!


Within a week or so Lilly was home with us after we finished with the home study and all of the paperwork.  Again, I’m so impressed with Angels Among Us!  I am an efficient person and I like when I meet people who are also the same way.  They love and care for the animals so much and want to work to place them in a good home!  If I ever adopt another pet I know where to go!


We have not had a dog in about 15 years so it’s fun to have a dog around again.  Our cats currently would disagree with that statement.  Slowly, they are getting braver and braver around Lilly but it’s not yet been a week.  We can tell that Lilly is getting more and more comfortable around the house.  She will stay in one room while we are in another room and will roam the house checking things out.  She has explored the backyard and is enjoying that.  She is great in the car and comes to work with me every day!  I don’t know that she loves the early morning wake-ups though!  (5:30 am wake-up is not her idea of fun!)


Rose has purchased four beds for her, two of which the cats take over when she’s not looking!  Lilly has a new raincoat that Rose insisted that we get and she is on the hunt for a costume for Lilly!  You can bet we will be making some homemade dog treats and I’ll be sewing some goodies for her!


I bought this shirt for Rose for her birthday which was the day before we got Lilly!  She loves it and it’s a true statement!  Rose just wants to hang with her dog!


Just look at those teeth and her snore is one for the record books.  It’s priceless and we love it!


Her walks more often than not turn into “stands” or “sits” but she is getting better by the day!  We found out that she has some eye sight issues so I’m sure that plays a part in it!


We love her so much!  She has melted our hearts big time.  My husband is already greeting the dog first when he gets home! She has him hooked already!  We are thankful to Angels Among Us, the foster mom, and Kerry who found her for us!  Thank you, thank you!!!
