someones gotta birthday coming up ...

My sweet little Goliath will be 3 years old on Sunday. I honestly can't believe he'll be 3. Goliath was my first REAL dog, he was also my first baby. I say my first baby because we got Goliath very young. He was 5 1/2 weeks old. I know normally you aren't supposed to get pups until they are 6-8 weeks but our little guy stopped nursing early because he had shark teeth at 4 weeks. Our breeder gave us the okay to take him home and he's been with us ever since. Because we got him at a younger age, he literally woke up all throughout the night to eat. Sometimes he wouldn't go back to sleep until he was rocked. My little guy ... and on Sunday he'll be 3. Goliath gets a lot of attention in our house for multiple reasons:

1. He's a big dog, so when we let him in from outside, he comes CHARGING.

2. I'm sure you've heard english bulldogs can be high maintenance, I'm telling you from experience, they are. He has bad allergies. Two allergies pills a day and three when the polland is heavy. Eye drops and cleaning between his wrinkles. He needs nightly cleanings of his tail (and underneath). He doesn't mean to be high maintenance, he just is. We're best friends with our vet, so much so Goliath has been known to come in after hours.

3. We co sleep with him. Ask me if we ever co slept with Ardo, answer :: NO! But when we moved into our new apartment Goliath was unsure so to help him feel secure we let him sleep in our bed, and now the beast wont leave! I guess we enable him, but he's a good pup and he's our big boy. Tune in next week for his doggie celebration!

Enjoy some "vintage" pics of our Georgia Peach
