The Christmas Bulldog

Mom was out shopping this morning and when she came home she was carrying a white plastic bag and smiling from ear to ear! This always means good stuff!

He seems pretty harmless! I think I'll call him Brandy!

Just about the time I was beginning to trust this happy fella, Mitch comes racing in wanting to know if it was a he or a she!

Mitch isn't as timid as I am! He's pretty brave for a youngster! I'm not sure Brandy the Bulldog was too happy to meet Mitch!

Look at the look on his face!

Mom reached over and touched Brandy's left paw and he started to sing and bounce! OMG am I safe?!

On another note - mom wanted to have some fun so she braided my beard! Don't I look stylish?!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That is some present you got. I think Louie would have grabbed it and shook it. He doesn't seem to be afraid of anything either..
Oh and you look so handsome with your braid!!

Isis said...

Dancin friends huh? i would like to have one of those. I'd end his singing and dancin days.

Hey Mags, You have a big bark! I like that. I was quite taken with your video and am now convinced you are on the other side of the front door. I've been telling mom that I think I should go outside to see if you are there, but she's just laughing at me. Grrrrrr.


Anonymous said...

Oh I can't believe your mom braided your beard. You still look beautiful anyways. Oh that singing dog sure is funny. I am glad you told it the rules of the house.

Noah the Airedale said...

Maggie, your beard is great. You've got a pretty good chance of winning the beard growing comp.

That Brandy is a hoot. We see you gave him a good talking too.

Hugs and tail wags

Snowball said...

Oh Maggie, you are afraid of a dog that is so much smaller like that? hee. I have a little dog over her that sings too. I attack it just like how I attack that noisy monster in the house.

Maggie, you should be glad that you are not made to keep long coat. If not, I guess your mum will make braids all over your body.


Lucky Dog Boarding said...

Hahaha! Brandy is pretty funny! Maggie, I think you proved that you're bark is louder and bigger than hers.

Have fun with your new friend!

Licks and wiggles,

Lucky Dog Boarding said...

Hey Maggie! Love your braided beard!

We loved your braid - that is fantastic!!


Stanley said...


I LOVE your bark, and you're so cute making up to that singing pup. I can tell by the look in your eye that you want to be buddies, but he's a strange beast.

Your beard is, by far, the longest beard I am aware of. The braid is a nice touch (thanks for rubbing it in - my beard is now about 1/2 an inch. Thanks, Stella).

Goober love,


Hi, Gofy, if not for the pawty in planet gofy l wouldn't have met u, nice to meet u, l m Million the silky terrier, my sister Dollar a miniture picher, the pawty was great..u'll so pretty and happy.

Peanut said...

Okay we finally got to see the video this time. :) That thing is a little scary. You made Flash jump when you started barking and the beard is so you.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie
Sure Brandy is a nice toy. I'd do the same if I had one like him. Barking and barking! Looks like Mitch is not a shy boy!
How long is your beard now??
Have a good night

Kirby said...

Hi Maggie,

Your beard is looking so pawsome! I'm not sure if anyone else does have a chance against you.

Your new toy is so funny. I'm like Mitch, I forget about fear and just jump in there. Has the bulldog been demolished yet? I pulled the 'voice box' out of one of my singing stuffies. I know, I know, bad Kirby.

Your pal,

Toby said...

Maggie!! Oh my gosh, your never gonna believe this but I think we have Brandy's brother!! You gotta check this out.

Do you think they're related??


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh wow, that singing dog video was just so darn funny! Jeannie cannot stop laughing at the look on poor Mitch's face!!!!!

Your beard braiding is very cool Maggie, we call it "plaiting" here in the UK!

Maggie In Plaits, she is sooooo pretty!

love and braided licks, Marvin xxxxxxx

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oooops, sorry Maggie, we just watched the video again and realised it is you in the video!

Still very funny though!!

Headgirl said...

Can't stop laughing!

Harry said...

Ooh, I think I would have a good old bark at that bulldog too Maggie.

Your plait is very impressive, I think you're in line to win the competition.

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Maggie, Brandy is scary! His voice sounds a bit like Tom Waits! If you need a hand (or paw) putting him in his place just let me know and I'll be right over in full destruction mode! Hehehe! J x

PS love the plaited beard look.

Gus said...

Hazel Bridges said...

Hi Maggie

Love the braid. When my typist played the video I raced round the room barking right along with you!!!!

That doggy won't sing so loud if you settle down to a chewing session with him. hee hee....

Kodak the Eskie said...

I love your stylish beard! You are so cute barking at the little singing doggie. That would freak me out too!

Hugs & licks,


Joe Stains said...

that bulldog would have been in pieces at our house!! wow, you sure are nice to just bark at it!

The Black and Tans. said...

You must have been very still to let your Mum plait your beard like that. I would have just fidgeted all the time.
Thank you very much for our Christmas card, we are still doing ours!!! Apparently Taffy and I must stop arguing and then they will get done a lot quicker! Hmmmmm.

Clover said...

Hi Maggie!
Wow, something like that happened to me this weekend! I met this little white Chistmas fluff thing that bounced around and sang! I am going to post pictures of it soon.
Love Clover xo

Ferndoggle said...

Looks like Brandy has drank too much brandy!! No wonder you're barking at him like crazy.

The beard does look quite stylish...I'd need a fake beard to keep up. My chin fur is tooooo short.


Lenny said...

Hey Maggie, besides looking adorable with your braid beard, you sure are self-disciplined! I think I would have tried to bite Brandy's singing head off!

Your friend, Lenny

ChaChi Lu said...

You are so lucky to be able to braid your hair. It is daaaarling!

Johann The Dog said...

LMTO!!! That is too funny, what a great dog! And you look real good with your beard braided Maggie. Very stylish!

Woofs, Johann

Mojo, Digger and family said...

What a big serious bark you have there, Maggie! I'm going to watch your vid a few times so I can practice. Got to get rid of my high-pitched boowoowooooo girly bark.

Anyway, I totally understand your suspicion towards Brandy. Your folks obviously didn't grow up watching Dr Who. Brandy is sinister. Keep an eye on him.
