Meet Gumba (pronounced Goom-ba)
I have mentioned before that we were hoping to get an English Bulldog and were on a waiting list. Well we found out last week that a few people backed out and we were able to get one in this litter and not have to wait for the next one. Amazing.
Well we get last pick, which is fine because they all look the same to me and come from great parents so any of the pups will be great. So a few days ago we finally learned which one of the little guys would be ours. We are getting Hillis. Which we will be changing his name to Gumba. A has said he wanted that as a name for his first bulldog for years. It’s slang for buddy/friend in Italian. I dig it, and I have been hearing it for so long anyways that I am all for it.
He just turned 4 weeks this past Wednesday, so we have a little less than 4 weeks now until he can come home with us. I wish I could just take him now. I learned that one week in puppy world is like a couple of months in human world, so I feel like we are missing out on an awesome part of his life. What’s nice is our breeder we are going through is amazing and pretty much lets us go over whenever we want to see him.
I apologize for the many upcoming posts of our new little fella. I promise I will try to keep it to a minimum, but I am just pretty excited. My parents were not pet people, so I never had a dog or any other animal growing up. I feel like I was deprived of this as a child. So my day has finally come. And I am going to love every second of it.
I leave you with a little video that our breeder sent us
