More Random Videos

The wagon has been an excellent addition to our walks. We are able to go much longer distances (which is so good for Olivia) and Griffin only has to walk about half the time. Last week though, Olivia had been at daycare all day and was super tired. But it was really nice out and Nate and I wanted to go for a walk. If Olivia had been going any slower, she would have been stopped, so I gave in and let her ride too. She was a NATURAL and enjoyed her neighborhood tour immensely. Since then, every time we go for a walk, she's looks at the wagon like, "put me in there!"

The videos below are just random everyday bulldog life experiences. Anyone who is considering bringing a bulldog into their life should watch these videos, because THIS is just your average day with bullies.

Video 1- Griffin cries when we aren't touching. Nate and I were playing Scrabble and Griffin pretty much cried the entire time. When we eventually sat down on the couch, he stopped.

Video 2- I've been trying to catch a FULL blown Olivia tantrum for 5 years. She flings her body at the couch, screeches like she is being ripped limb from limb, and wiggles around dramatically. I assure you, she is not injured, in pain of any kind, sick, or being harmed. She is just being dramatic. However, as soon as the camera comes out, she calms down, so I've never gotten a full tantrum. I'm confident there will be another one soon, so I'll keep trying.

Videos of the Puppies

Here are some random videos of Olivia and Griffin in the last week-

The first video is Griffin in the office. Some people take coffee breaks or stand at the water cooler (do people still do that?). Grif comes to the office 2-3 times a week, so for Abby and I, our "break" times are usually because Griffin needs some attention. Abby and I have offices across the hall from each other and Griffin usually wanders between them throughout the day. Sometimes, we will both hear, "thud, thud, thud" and we'll look at each other and both get up and run towards the stairs because Griffin is taking himself out by leaving.... or my darling boy is distracting us like the video below. 

At home, Griffin and Olivia spend a lot of time playing together. Sometimes the wrestle, sometimes they lay on the floor and barely move (see the video below for their lazy playing). They just lay on the floor and bite each other. I didn't know anything about dogs before I had Olivia and Griffin. It sort of looks like they are fighting, but they are both completely content, relaxed, happy and playing- despite the amount of biting going on. 

Danny came over the other day. Danny is BY FAR, Griffin's favorite person in the world. Grif gets SO excited when Danny is at our house. Unless Danny is literally touching Griffin, Grif wails. He just wants to snuggle Danny nonstop. 

That's all for now. The bullies are lovin' life and chillin' until the weather cools down a bit...

Relaxin' at Home

We're back in our school year routine and have adjusted to being home from camp. Olivia is back at daycare two days a week and on those days, she is EXHAUSTED and very quiet all evening long. There is nothing better than a calm, easy going bulldog. On Olivia's school days, Griffin comes to the office with me and he has been VERY easy going. We go outside very now and then and he likes to greet the mailman and check out anyone who walks down the hall, but mostly, he just chills. 

When we got home from daycare, Olivia walked into the yard
and basically collapsed. Apparently it was a busy day!
Nate and I have been busy with a million different things, but we finally had time to relax a few nights ago. Naturally, all 4 of us had to be close enough to touch. 

When we aren't relaxing, Olivia and Griffin enjoy playing. They make a lot of noise, but there is nothing cuter than bullies playing...
