What habit does someone close to you have that you wish you could change?

1 Sep

This one was very easy for me to answer, because as I am sitting her writing this, I hear it coming from outside; my bulldog’s snoring. I love that dog like a kid, but there are only so many hours in a day where his snoring is tolerable.

Before we bought him, almost two years ago, I had done extensive research on the breed. I knew that they were considered “high maintenance” dogs and wanted to be prepared. After talking to other bull dogs owners, reading medical research online, and discussing things with my Aunt, who makes the Dog Whisper look like an amateur, I knew that a “bully” was the breed for our family. They are lazy, fat, but full of personality. When we went to look at the liter of pups, our dog Cane, chose us. I had my eye on a female. The breeder had sent me pictures of her so she was the one I was going to look at, but then Cane decided that he wanted us to be “his humans.” I was sitting on the floor surrounded by puppy bull dogs, basically I was in heaven, and this little man backed up into my lap and just sat there. It was like he knew that I was a sucker and that was all it took. He went home with us that night.

When he was a pup, the snoring wasn’t so bad. We had him in our room for a while, but as he grew, so did the volume and depth of the snoring. We moved him from the foot of our bed to the living room in hopes that we would not hear him. That hoping did not get us far. He was loud. At the time, we were in a condo, so the walls were thin and area small, so when we moved to a 2100 sq., foot house, we thought that we might escape the noise. Once again, we were SO wrong. Somehow it got worse. There are times, no lie, our walls vibrate. It has woken me up at 2:30 in the morning because it sounds like a large machine is in our room. The only time I don’t really hear it, is if he is sleeping with one of the big girls in her room downstairs. (How that child can sleep through his snoring is beyond me, but it just goes to show that she can sleep through anything.) The best part is that he has the ability to walk and snore. Stand and snore, even eat and snore. That is talent friends.

My fear is that this snoring habit is only going to get worse as he ages, kind of like my Grandpa. I am just thankful for ear plugs, because at the rate we are going… we might need to invest stock in an ear plug company! If you know of any, please send me their NYSE symbol… thanks 🙂

    Lol. Great story. A couple of weeks ago, I ended up pet sitting 2 pugs and she told me from the beginning that they snore. Now, this was the first time I was pet sitting a pair of pugs so I told myself, “no biggie”. This is what I realized with them. Yes, they did snore, but at night time as long as they went for a nice walk within 15 minutes of going to their bed you could only hear a little bit of their snoring. Aha! The exercise they got diminish their snoring. I enjoyed having them with me and I found their snoring somewhat interesting, funny, and amusing. I hope they come back soon:)

      Ha. Yes pugs are just as bad. Love it.
