    Hello. I haven't been here in forever; hope everyone is doing well. l heard the sad news about Rufus, remembered that his owner was active here, and figured I should reconnect with this forum to see how all the other bullies are doing.

    If anyone remembers Carlos and Stella, they're doing fine. Stella's behavioral issues remain, but she continues to improve all the time, and, when she's not stressed out, is about the most affectionate dog I've ever met. Last September, we enrolled in a behavioral program at the University of Georgia; we had a couple of sessions with a behaviorist and some student observers and six months of counseling and feedback. Stella's been on Reconcile, and we've been implementing the advice the UGA vet gave us. It seems like the pills and our continued efforts have helped a lot.

    Carlos's easy-going nature hasn't changed. He admirably puts up with Stella's outbursts (which are nowadays directed only at him and not at us or the pug or jack russell), and he's maturing into a great dog, laid-back but still occasionally bully-crazy. He also trances regularly on a particular bush in the backyard and the coat rack in our dining room and continues to love chasing squirted water.

    Anyway, I don't know who's active here these days; could be that nobody knows what I'm talking about. If that's the case, I'll just say that I have two bullies, a male and a female, each around two years old, and as soon as I can remember how to post pictures, I'll show you what they look like.
  2. Hello! I'm newer to this particular BT forum, but I'm very active. I'd love to see yout two!

    So glad to hear about Carlos and Stella! I've kept relatively active, but I feel like the forum is not the same anymore :( We should get more bull terrier owners back here!

    Post some pictures!

    Here are some recent pictures of them.

    Good to see you're still around, Sasha. Hope Sonya's doing well!

    Edit: Let me know if this isn't the preferred way of posting pictures; it seemed the easiest to me.

    Who's your behaviorist at the University of Georgia? I just met some veterinary behaviorists at a conference and I think one of them said she was from there!

    Her name is Alexandra Moesta. She was great. I owe her a picture of Stella to hang on their graduation wall. Are you still doing your studies, or have you finished?

    Matt, missed you here! Gorgeous bullies as always. I can't remember, where did you get Carlos again?

    Thanks! We got him here in the Atlanta area from someone who I don't think breeds anymore.

    I don't think that that was her name... Maybe I met someone else..

    I still have about 3 years left until I graduate, but my qualifying exam is in a month, which means that if I fail, I just have a month left! :eek:
