Jeremy and I don't have any kids yet so Pearl, our bulldog, is our baby.
We probably treat her too much like a baby. She is completely spoiled and I joke to Jeremy that we live on her schedule.
We got her around Christmas time in 2010.
You see, I had a cat named Joker who was the sweetest thing to me but to Jeremy he was the "spawn of the devil". Jeremy is extremely allergic to cats. He would come home and immediately his eyes would get red and his nose runny. It was not unbearable but it always uncomfortable for him. It didn't matter how much I vacuumed and cleaned the house, Joker's hair would be everywhere. So very sadly, I gave him away to a coworker's daughter-in-law. I knew he was going to go to a good home and that made things a little better.
Well, with Joker gone finally breathed easily again at home and after a while we decided to get a dog - a bulldog. I remember I was travelling for work when Jeremy and I finally made the decision to get a bulldog. We were looking at the breeders website together seeing the pictures of all the little puppies the breeder had for sale. We picked "Female # 2". Afer I came back from the trip, Jeremy and I drove up to Suphur Spring, TX and met our little stinker for the first time. There were so many cute puppies over there and the breeder had us play and see other ones in case we wanted to change our minds, but we had decided on "Female # 2" and she would be it.
On the way home we decided to name her Pearl.
This is Pearly on the way home.
That Christmas was extra special because we had Pearl with us. Jeremy and she became instant best buddies.
No one plays "tug rope" like Jeremy does.
And somebody was done for right from the beggining...
And Pearly has grown a lot. She has such a personality! She's fussy, she snores, she farts.
She loves chewing on her bone and "helping" Jeremy cook.
Doing laundry has never been the same again since we got her.
I just know that no matter what happens during the day, I have these two to look forward to at night - and that makes it all worth it.
I love you!
