An English Bull Terrier... We are hoping to get a Bully as soon as we have had the new home built. The house plans are in council so hope the builders will start soon.
We already have a name for her.. "Jessica" she will probably get Jessie most of the time. Maybe when she is naughty it will be Jessica.
We have already got a ball chuck er.

Very cute Dors. I am envious of you getting a dog. I miss our very special cat alot so we are thinking of maybe getting a dog but I don't know what breed we would choose.

Dors said...

Thank you Sally. Well I am hooked on Bullies... They are so sweet.
I hope you get a nice dog.
I know your cat was so special to you. Hugs..
