We LOVE our bulldog Matilda. LOVE LOVE LOVE HER. We've talked about only having bulldogs and only naming them Matilda (Matilda II, Matilda III, etc) and just been ridiculous. I'll be devastated when our sweet pup passes away one day, but the reality is bulldogs don't live near as long as many other types of dogs.
Seeing these beautiful family dogs scurrying around the back of the truck got me thinking. For some reason, I got bit by the "American Dream" bug and started fantasizing about our future children unwrapping a big box with air holes in it on Christmas morning and saying goodbye to that same dog when they go off to college. It just seemed like a lovely thing.
