He's smiling--really, he is.
Dewey is a 5 year old pure blooded English bulldog. These dogs are expensive around here (you know--the GEORGIA BULLDOGS) and usually sell for $1,000-$2,000. Dewey has been "fixed", and we have adopted him from a doggie foster family. He didn't cost us anything, unless you count the zillion pounds of dog food we had to buy. Did I mention he weighs 90 pounds? I'm not kidding. He's going on a diet!
Dewey is just hilarious! He is very smart and acts like he knows exactly what you're saying to him. When he eats, he sounds like a dinosaur; or at least what I think a dinosaur would sound like. If he hears the word "treat" he comes running to catch it. I think he swallows it whole. And the snoring! I have always been happy that I married a man who doesn't snore. Well, you can hear Dewey snoring all the way across the house!
Although Dewey is house trained, the plan is for him to be an outside dog. We have a large fenced dog run with a big dog house just perfect for him. It's in the 30's here at night right now, so Mr. C wants Dewey to stay inside until the weather warms up. He's actually very well-behaved and loving, so I don't mind him being inside.
Buddy the schnauzer and Sassy the cat are not sure what has invaded their home. Buddy has been barking at Dewey all day, and Sassy just peeks at him from time to time. I think that if we put Buddy and Dewey outside together for a couple of hours Buddy will get over his anxiety. Dewey is very friendly to Buddy and Sassy. Hopefully they'll adjust in the next few days.
