If You Are Considering Getting a Bulldog…

One Bulldog Puppy. $2000+

4 Vet Bills in 2 years. $1,000

1 Bulldog Weight Loss Program. $500/year

1 Ruined Floor. $8,000+

One Canine Who's Lucky He is So Darn Cute. Priceless. A sofa cushion away from being too friggin' expensive.


The last picture is Wonderbutt in the hallway on the border of the Forbidden Zone. Β He dragged his bed there to wait for me while I worked in the office on the other side of the gate (not the gate leaning against the wall). You, too, can have this kind of devotion for the low, low price of $11,500 – and counting…

  1. As entertaining as Wonderbutt is, after reading of his exploits, why on earth would I want my own?!?
    Much more fun (and cheaper) to live vicariously through you!

  2. I haven’t totaled up Savannah’s cost but I do know one thing that I know I can say goes for Wonderbutt too…

    Worth every penny. hahaha…

  3. I think he knows you are talking about him. He really is too cute though.

  4. Well, on the bright side, you don’t have to put him through college!

  5. My husband has always loved bulldogs but now I’ve read your post – forget it! I’ll just enjoy Wonderbutt from a distance!

  6. This is my favourite post of the day! Too funny! πŸ™‚

  7. Hilarious and scary! It would be cheaper to feed Wonderbutt dollar bills! πŸ™‚

  8. I can feel your pain. One year we spent over $7,000 on the dogs, surgery twice for 1, surgery for another, multiple Rx’s for antibotics, dog food, etc. Not to mention replacing destoyed belongings. I wish I could tell you it gets better. You just love them inspite of it all.

  9. A bargain! Especially since you’re paying!

  10. I can’t afford one right now with the new baby coming! At first the pictures didn’t come up on my email as I was reading and I thought he had ruined your new floor already, but then I realized he was the cause for you getting it. πŸ™‚

  11. Haha….I have a granddog bulldog …. I’ll just stick to my little lap dog rescues πŸ™‚

  12. I ‘d have given up counting money by now….WB is now a firmly in place family member, he just thinks that he rules the roost!!

  13. I guess I’ll never get a bulldog.
    But it was totally worth it all, right? You know you love Wonderbutt.

  14. Wow that’s a lot of cash!

  15. Maybe the economics get better the more bulldogs you own. Then each bulldog would only be responsible for a share of the floor.

  16. Awww, that look is priceless! I can’t talk about the $$$, I’ve raised a puppy myself so I can only commiserate.

  17. OMG…Wonderbutt puppy is too, too precious. NO one could resist that face! He is truly priceless!

    What El Guapo said…..lol

  19. Ouch. Now I know why we don’t have a dog. Two kids are enough then.

  20. You’re worth it Wonderbutt!
    Bella and DiDi

  21. Trade you all my cats for one Wonderbutt πŸ™‚

  22. Wonderbutt is adorable! I had a bulldog puppy of my own, and yeah – vet bills over four years were actually MORE than a thousand bucks. I saved a little bit by enrolling Bruno in Pet Assure (like a vet discount program of sorts), and I had to keep a dedicated savings account for him – I added about 75 bucks a month to it. That just about covered it. A big puppy like this is expensive!

  23. Saw this tonight and had to share it…

    Maybe a similar Wonderbutt experiment is in order…
