    If Arthur doesn’t work out here’s a place you may be interested in checking out.

    Warning. May cause immediate desire to adopt.

    “...he had a pretty significant prolapsed rectum.”
    Speaking of gross pictures...

    I’m gonna go on the record as stating that I believe just about any prolapsed rectum is “pretty significant,” but that’s just one man’s opinion.

    At least it’s a very realistic pitch for any potential adopters. “We have two bulldogs. One is dead and the other’s butt lives outside its body sometimes. $600.”

    As a former bulldog adopter they are definitely not for everybody and can be quite a handful given their prior abuse and propensity for health issues, but the rectum is a weird one.

    Definitely an example of a breed where the inbreeding took an unhealthy turn.

    Today I was diagnosed with bipolar 2. So that's fun.

    I'm sorry that sucks
    BUT
    also it's really good to have a diagnosis which means potential treatments, potential behavior changes, potential to have a more stable existence.
    Things can get better for you. There's a path forward.

    When I adopted my dog, due to how competitive it is (at least in my city) to get a rescue dog, I went the route of applying to and getting pre approved at about four different rescue ops. That way when I found a dog I wanted I didn't have to wait to go through the approval process and it made it much easier to get the doggie I was looking for. I also got to know the Ops a bit and worked directly with the best one of the bunch who gave me heads up on dogs that were incoming but hadn't been posted on their website yet, so I got first dibs.

    Worked out pretty well for me, just a thought.

    I should add, I did this AFTER I missed out on about five different dogs, and figured I had to do something to change this...

    Congratulations! Now that you have a diagnosis, you can proceed forward with the right treatment for you. Doors of treatment that were closed, are now open to you. This is a good thing.

    Yeah, tbh we sort of jumped on Arthur by impulse, so if it doesn't work out, it probably wasn't meant to be (we'll find out by Saturday if we get a shot at him). That'll give us more time to take a more methodical approach and make sure we're picking a dog who will be a good fit.

    Also, your dog is beautiful. Not warped at all.

    "EXCELSIOR!"

    She's still pretty warped.

    I do not wanna see how your table looks like. I imagine your house looking like the Salvador Dali painting with the melting clocks.

    That is technically not my house in the above pic. If my house was that messy I'd have a coronary.

    They only told you that when you got there? What the crap?! As if you couldn't possibly have any other things planned for the day and a 5 hour interview is perfectly normal. Ugh, the hubris.
