What are the Chances?

Have you ever seen Homeward Bound? C'mon, yes you have. Well, there is a puppy in that movie whose voice is provided by Michael J Fox (love him). That pup's name is Chance. He is an American Bulldog and rips through everything and is a bit rowdy. That's putting it nicely.

Well, Chance (as he is better known) is our American Bulldog's great-great-great-great-great something. Okay, so we have no idea how the bloodline goes, but we do know that Chance is in the same bloodline as our 2 year old Darby.

We were given Darby by Jacob's brother and sister-in-law who once were registered breeders. She was the runt of the litter. Yes, we have a 95 pound runt.

Well, what happens when you have an unfixed 95lb runt American Bulldog running around the house the week you are actually inviting people who do not really know you over to your house for the first time? A dog that is in heat and apparently ate corn cobs out of the trash last week. Yep, she is bleeding and puking everywhere!

You wanted to know that, right?

Oh yeah, and it is raining a lot and really muddy outside. So, you know what that means.

What are the CHANCES this would happen this week?

Oh, and yes we just got the okay last weekend to have her fixed. We thought we should ask Jacob's brother in case he wanted to breed her. She will be going to the vet next be ready for my next party.

Darby's new name is Chance. I just changed it.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog this weekend, Candace! In our house, pumpkin is appropriate all year long. I have a much-loved recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip muffins that is a real crowd pleaser. :)

  2. Hey Candace! It's Tabitha...I love your blog! Dogs definitely make life more interesting don't they? I remember one time I was having one of those "home parties" and everyone was sitting in a circle in the living room and my dog sat down right in the middle, pooted really loud and then jumped like it scared her. Everyone else thought it was hilarious, but I was mortified. I'm going to add you to my bloglist if that's okay!
