A Six-Pack?!?!?!?
October 20, 2005

My human, Phil, said that if you see a good thing that you CAN do, it means that it something that you SHOULD do.

He read about Bart at Petfinder.com and thought about him for a couple of weeks, Phil thinks that Bart and I have a lot in common, like sleeping, eating, snoring, and grunting.

He asked us dogs if we wanted another friend. Hey, why not.... it could mean more biscuits for all of us!!

Say Hello To Bart the Bulldog
October 20, 2005

Bart came from the VERY good people of On The Rebound Bulldog Rescue Foundation. Click on the logo to visit their site.

This is Bart's story:

Bart is a 9 year old "gentle giant". He was found running as a stray in the Philadelphia area.

Bart is a very calm dog. He just "goes with the flow" of the house, never making trouble or doing things he shouldn't. His favorite thing to do is lay on his big bed in front of the TV and watch the action in the room, or take nice long snoozes.

Bart is in good health for one his age. He shows a bit of arthritis and is currently taking medicine, which he is responding to. He is an excellent breather and has wonderful eyes that love to watch what you are doing in the kitchen.
Bart was unfortunate to find himself alone on the streets of Philly with no people of his own at a time in his life that most would call his Golden years.

Bart asks for very little in life and would make a nice quiet companion for someone who would open their hearts and allow Bart to make their lives "Golden" with his steady love.

I'm Bart, the big, the beautiful, the sleepy..... hey, did you know that humans pay big money to get eyes this color????

Me and my new pet human

He' is a pretty nice guy, and so is this other dog.... his name is Dominic, and he is old, like me.  I guess we'll have to share the human, though.

That must feel real good......  Dominic looks like he has more sense than to lie down on wet asphalt unless there was a real good reason!

 That's Yogi, he's like me, only a lot smaller. Little Fats is in the cage with Yogi. He is a bossy little somebody, but I think he's pretty nice.

OK, Dad... Let's Go!

Bart goes to the Vet
October 22, 2005

Did you ever wonder what the inside of an English Bulldog looked like? If you click on my handsome face, the picture gets real big and you can see all the way down to China...
well, maybe all they way down to the biscuits.

I'm happy now... all they did was take my temperature

Oh yeah, they weighed me

It's me... Bart! Would you believe, we actually had a girl dog around here for company! That Lucy, what a sweetheart. OK, so she's sort of stuck on Dominic, but so what... this place needed a little class... I mean, a little more class than I bring, that is!

Lucy was only here for a few days. She went back to take care of her pet human, Maria, on Saturday.
