Updates for Ferdinand's Blog

The dogs loved playing at Mingo Park.  They were exhausted.  Sadly, we didn't get any pictures at the park.  

Roxy was exhausted after going to Mingo Park

Ferdinand and Roxy love car rides

This is self-explanatory.  

Ferdinand dropped his ball in the bathtub.  He can get in and out on his own, but he'd prefer to cry and wait for me to get it....Not gonna happen.

Ferdinand loves to sit on the couch and fall asleep sitting up.

Before he could fall asleep, I did some photoshopping.  He is an English Bulldog!  "Hello, Govna!"

And he's out.

Doakes loves hiding out in her new comfy carrier.

He loves sleeping...especially like this.


Just another snoring video

Ferd is mad that I won't let him sit on my lap

Ferdinand is upset that the ball he was playing with is under the couch

I gave the ball back to Ferdinand and he lost it under the couch again.  What a jerk.

I used to bowl as a kid.  I loved it.  At my parents house, they never got rid of my bowling balls, Ferdinand found them and now that is his favorite thing to play with when he goes to see my parents.

Ferdinand found my old bowling ball.  It will entertain him for hours.

He pushes it all around my parents house.

Just to show how obsessed Ferdinand is with the bowling ball

Ferdinand loves the fall time.  So does Roxy.  They get insane and must known that winter is coming.  

Ferdinand loves playing in the leaves

"Oh, well, hey there."

I don't have any kids, and obviously have too much time on my hands, so I went out and got a couple different costumes for the dogs and the cats.  I wasn't sure how they would feel about wearing the costumes.  They LOVED it!

This was the first year that we did pumpkins for Halloween.  Ferdinand really wanted to help out.

Derek's first Jack-o-Lantern ever

My Jack-o-Lantern

Ferd loves the way pumpkins taste

All lit up.

Our friends, Adam and Jenna came down to have dinner with us and they got to meet the pups.

Roxy loved being near Jenna.  I think Adam was a bit jealous.

Ferd decided he was going to entertain himself by sucking on his bed.

Roxy and Ferd love to wrestle.  It's always on our bed.  This is the look I get before I try to break it up.

Dressing Ferd up in one of his Halloween costumes.  He's a frog.

Roxy got to be a bumble bee!

Checking each other out.

Making adjustments to his costume.

More pics of them with their costumes on 

They love them!

The frog got hungry

Me and the dogs

Derek and the dogs with their Halloween costumes.

We also tried to dress Ferd up like Batman.

Batman and Robin

Roxy is a great Robin

We even dressed up for a hot second.

We also dressed the cats up.  Dexter was a cow.

Doakes was a lion.

For Halloween, we handed out candy with the dogs.  Ferdinand decided he wanted to be a hot dog.

They were ready to hand candy out to the trick-or-treaters.

Look at the cute hot dog butt.

Roxy likes to wear her antenna.

Roxy's anticipation has built up to hand candy out to the kids.

The dogs were absolutely exhausted after trick-or-treating

Roxy didn't even want to come to bed because she was so tired.

Ferd was just as tired.  This was the first time that we actually got to sleep in our bed without the dogs.  We should have Halloween all year round.  

I put candy corn in my mouth and it looked like Ferd's teeth.  He was like, "WTF?"

Trying to show our "teeth" off.

We originally found out about our breeder, Lynn Resor, from Derek's twitter friend, Jim Britt.  Jim and Erin, his fiance, got their bulldog, Zamboni, from Lynn.  After Derek tweeted about us wanting a bulldog, they told us to go with Lynn.  After getting Ferdinand, we kept saying that we needed to get together so the brothers could meet.  Finally, after almost a year, the boys got to meet.

Ferd was so excited to see Zamboni, he wanted to drive!

The brothers meet and take off to play in the park.

You can tell they are related, they are both the center of attention.

Ferd loves the dog park.

Zamboni and Roxy got along better than Ferdinand and Zamboni did.

For Roxy being generally leery of lots of dogs, she really loved the dog park.

Ferd and Zamboni going face to face.

Ferd wanted to hump Zamboni.  Zamboni wanted to eat Ferd's face.  

Can you tell that they are brothers?  Can you believe that Ferdinand is the younger almost a year!!!!

Zamboni and his mommy, Erin!

We would love to have another meet-up with them.  Derek and I had a ton of fun, and, of course, so did Ferdinand and Roxy.

I have gotten awful migraines since I was in about 3rd grade.  I have been to neurologists and migraine specialists and they are still working to find a solution to my migraines.  The medicine they give me knocks me out and nothing works better than the love of the dogs.  The dogs cuddled with me all day long.

I woke up from my migraine-drug-induced nap and this is the look I got.  Ferdinand was really trying to make sure I was okay.

Although I was suffering from my migraine, both Roxy and Ferd made me smile when they were watching the kids come home from school.

They are the new neighborhood watch, making sure the kids get home safely from the bus stop.

See that small amount of space on the left of the picture?  That's where I sleep.  My husband steals the covers and the dogs hog the king-sized bed.  No wonder I get migraines.  Look at how they sleep.  haha

The rest of these pictures are either what I've found on my phone or on Derek's phone.

This picture is one of my favorites, and it's too bad it's kind of blurry.  When Ferd is tired, he loves to sit with me like this.

When Derek and I go out to run errands, we love taking the dogs with us.  This is how they always end up, even if we are only gone for a minute.  Ferdinand looks like a little, old lady in the driver's seat.

Ferd doesn't always like how much time I spend on Facebook.  He literally closed the computer 3 seconds after this picture was taken.  He wanted mother/son time.

When we ride in the car, sometimes this is how Ferd likes to ride.  He is insane.

Ferd is sadly being hit with allergies.  He ended up with a bacterial infection in his ear, as well as a yeast infection.  I was told by the vet that this is common among bulldogs, especially during allergy season.  The vet gave us cream to put in his ear and pills for him to take.  He also has some acne, and the meds have helped take care of that.  This video is because he saw the vet, and she walked out.  He loves the vet and was sad that she left him.  

This is the look I get when I have a delicious Swiss Roll and cup of coffee.  He wants it...too bad he isn't getting it.

We have a tough time getting balls that last in our house.  Ferdinand and Roxy destroy most toys within minutes of us bringing them home.  The Jolly Ball seems to be the best toy that we could have gotten them.


Derek and Roxy love Ferdinand's Blog.  Do you?
