Creating a positive relationship between our bulldog and baby

From the moment my hubby and I found out we were pregnant, we knew we would do anything to make sure Kafka the bulldog and baby got along. Kafka, we have always said, was in his forever home. Even so, there was one exception to this. My husband once said that if, worse comes to... Read more »

Kafka the bulldog takes a vacation

Kafka the bulldog takes a vacation
I’m not going to lie. I’m jealous of Kafka the bulldog sleeping away about 75% of the day. But I also know that the last four and a half months have been rough on him. With baby girl in our lives, he’s no longer “top dog.” Even so, within the last couple months, he’s adjusted... Read more »

Our Baby Giggles at Our English Bulldog

Thumbnail image for 'Our Baby Giggles at Our English Bulldog'
So, it’s been awhile. Not surprisingly, baby girl has been keeping me busy, and life has, completely and utterly, changed for us.  I have thought about writing — about how Kafka the English bulldog has calmed down a ton (thanks, in large part, to some Animal Sense training), how we still have to work on...

Kafka The Bulldog Met Baby Girl Hall, And The Dog Training Continues

Kafka The Bulldog Met Baby Girl Hall, And The Dog Training Continues
I wish that a lot of my friends had been right… that we’d bring baby girl home and Kafka would surprise us and behave wonderfully when he, our fur baby, our bulldog, met baby girl Hall. That’s not to say that he’s been terrible. It’s clear that the dog training we did helped a little,... Read more »

Milestones in Getting the Dog Ready for Baby

Milestones in Getting the Dog Ready for Baby
We’ve been busy. But, no, baby girl has not yet arrived unfortunately. Rather, we’ve been busy getting ready for her, and in turn, we’ve been getting the dog ready for baby, a.k.a. a whole world of change. Well that, and Kafka the bulldog had a full week of being sick, which was absolutely no fun... Read more »

My Fur Baby Kafka the Bulldog Teaches Me Yet Another Lesson

My Fur Baby Kafka the Bulldog Teaches Me Yet Another Lesson
I felt like a horrible mama to my fur baby Kafka the bulldog yesterday. We’ve been trying to “wean” him off sleeping in our bed, especially since baby girl will be here any day now, and that means he’s sleeping in his kennel at night. He actually seems to be okay with this arrangement too.... Read more »

Our Bulldog, The Polar Vortex, and a Towel

Our Bulldog, The Polar Vortex, and a Towel
When the polar vortex first descended on Chicago a few weeks ago, Kafka the bulldog, naturally, hated to go outside. So when freezing temps descended on the Windy City yet again earlier this week, I thought we’d be in for the same stubborn dog, who had trouble doing his business out in the snow. But... Read more »

A Successful Play Date for a Bulldog and Toddler

A Successful Play Date for a Bulldog and Toddler
Kafka the bulldog had a play date this weekend, kind of. A couple of our friends came over for lunch, and they brought their toddler. For privacy sake, let’s call their toddler… SB for silly boy, or sweet boy. You take your pick. Because really he’s both. He loves to giggle and smile. He loves... Read more »

Chiberia and Our Bulldog: No Walk in the Park

The sun fooled him, I think. But Kafka the bulldog, amazingly, let us put his hoodie on him before heading outside.
When we first heard that the temps today in Chicago, now known as Chiberia, were going to be negative 15 or so, with the windchill hovering around 30 or 40 below, my first thought was: what were we going to do with Kafka the bulldog? How was he going to handle the cold when we... Read more »

Kafka and the Dog Food Bowl: A Surprising Development
Notice something that normally wouldn’t be there in the above photo? Look closely, at the dog food bowl. Yep, that’s right, Kafka is sitting there, drool starting to form around his jowls, with a full bowl of kibble sitting in front of him, and he’s NOT CHOWING DOWN ON IT immediately. This is huge, guys.... Read more »
