Never did I think I would have a dog. I’ve survived 39 years without a dog and I was just fine not having one. Don’t hate me because I’m not a dog person….. if you go your life without something, well then, you just don’t know what you’re missing, right? Having a 2 & 3yo is enough to make anyone crazy as it is. Adding a puppy into that mix is something I was extremely reluctant to do.
Well……. SURPRISE!!!! The dog I thought I never wanted found his way to our home just in time for Sebastian’s 2nd birthday. Once I got over my shock, I have done my best to embrace this stinky, so-ugly-he’s-cute, beast.
Meet Lennox Hugo…..
Lennox is a Miniature American Bulldog
What does he look like??? Gargoyle? Ewok?? Gorilla? lol. He looks familiar but I just can’t put my finger on it…..
I hate his ears. I wish we would’ve found him before the breeder chopped them off. There aren’t many of these breeders around; it is still a relatively new breed, and is not recognized by the AKC. His parents are pretty famous, pictured below. Dad is on left and mom is on right. He is going to grow into one fugly muscle dog. They weigh about 40lbs and are very short in stature. Basically he is going to get wider.
Lenny is a very sweet dog and the boys are in love. Bash hugs and kisses him all day long. He is pretty well behaved (minus the leather computer chair and the seat in the truck that he chewed through), and has had minimal accidents in the house. He has gone to puppy school and has been the star of the class. He’s famous for his little tongue 😉
He is playful but not super excitable like many puppies. He isn’t an athlete by any means. Our first walk around the block didn’t fare so well…. Lenny was not in the mood to walk that far….luckily we had room in the double stroller! lol
So now I am the shit-bag-slinging mom of a dog I never wanted but he is growing on me. I hope that with time and more bonding I will grow to love him as much as the rest of my family does.
