These are just some of the wonderful, quirky, and lovable canines that make up the fabric of my crazy, chaotic, and charmed little life.

Stats:
English Bulldog, age 3.

Favorite Things:
FOOD & CHILDREN. (Not children as food). Doing absolutely anything that results in her receiving a treat. Doing a weird groaning thing when she wants attention or wants the food you’re consuming. Planting on walks when she doesn’t approve of the direction you’re headed in. Attacking you with her meaty paws so she can lick your face into oblivion.

Nicknames:
El, Ullie, Ul.

MAGGIE

This large love makes a home in East Greenwood, where she charms everyone she meets. I love my walks with Maggie, they are so easy and relaxing – she’s a bit of a slow mover, so we chill out and take our time.

 Sun is their favorite.

Sun is their favorite.

Banjo: LITERALLY ANYTHING EDIBLE. Cuddling with his mum (me). He loves NOT being petted/talked to/bothered by strangers (mostly anyone except for me). He loves: long Discovery Park walks, performing impressive tricks,  walking like a human, eating cat turds, stealing cat food, basking in the sun, scaring the crap out of young children and adults alike. 
Kinsey: Sun-basking, batting her plastic springs, lots and lots of attention, bathing herself in front of people, relaxing in her kitty-cave, being the best gato in the entire world. Seriously. 

Nicknames:
These are way too embarrassing to share online.
