What Happens When Kafka the Bulldog Plays Soccer

What Happens When Kafka the Bulldog Plays Soccer
Not much gets Kafka the bulldog moving. He loves to spread out on the couch. He loves to lay around in the sun. He loves to cuddle up with my husband, my kids, or me. Even when we’re playing outside, he’s pretty content just to watch us… unless we bring out the soccer ball. While... Read more »

When to Take Your Bulldog for a Walk

When to Take Your Bulldog for a Walk
Bulldogs are lazy and stubborn, but they do like their exercise… occasionally. They do like going on walks… occasionally. So when is the best time to take your bulldog for a walk? That’s hard to say. Kafka the bulldog will always claim to want to go for a walk. Seriously. He may nap pretty much... Read more »

Kafka Celebrates National Dog Day with a Nap (or Two)

Kafka Celebrates National Dog Day with a Nap (or Two)
Happy National Dog Day! Facebook and Twitter have been full of cute dogs ‘posing’ for the camera, or playing outside. But Kafka the bulldog? I got a picture of him sleeping. Because, really? That’s how he spends a majority of his days lately it seems. I had always heard that when bulldogs turn three or... Read more »

Who’s Alpha? No Contest Between Kafka the Bulldog and Baby

Who’s Alpha? No Contest Between Kafka the Bulldog and Baby
Bulldogs are a stubborn breed, and Kafka is no exception. From the day we brought him home over three years ago, he’s fought us tooth and nail when we tried to establish ourselves as the alpha. And when people meet him (people who know we have both a bulldog and baby at home), one of... Read more »

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 »
