I cannot tell you how deeply this boy has touched my soul. You know, we deal with the atrocities done by humans to their animals almost daily...at least weekly. Having said that, I will NEVER be able to understand how Chewy's family could just dump him. I'm not one to cry and get emotional. I get mad more than brokenhearted. Today, I'm totally brokenhearted. My soul hurts and I don't know how to put it in words. How does someone just throw away their dog? How do they leave their dog to to be laid to rest with total strangers?? Our animals love us unconditionally; the least we can do is be there for them until the end. When they pass they should do so with us by their side. I'm devastated tonight and I'm not ashamed to say so. I will be by Chewy's side when his time comes. He will know love and comfort. For me, all I know tonight is sorrow. I will never understand how this can be done. Thank you again for letting me vent. I just wish my words could express my thoughts. We just got Chewy 2 days ago and he's been at our vet ever since. After a complete and total 2 day overhaul, testings, etc, we discovered our poor CHEWY has bone cancer :( It is at an advanced stage. As I mentioned on the x-ray, the vet is amazed that the bone hasn't snapped in half yet :( Also, the lump under his arm burst today and is draining an exorbitant amount of puss and infection. He will be spoiled, loved, and treated like a king until the moment he shows signs of pain, or discomfort. At that time we will have a very difficult decision to make. Please keep your prayers coming. This gentle soul deserves them...

Bully Ball 2011 - March 6th, 2011
Posted March 7, 2011 10:43 pm
Our 2nd Annual Bully Ball took place last weekend and it was a blast! Bulldog lovers & supporters came together at this black tie event at the Ritz Carlton, Buckhead, GA to raise money for Bulldog Rescue in the southeast. Here are some pictures of the dinner, live auction, silent auction tables and the AABR girls in attendance.
On the way back home from the Ball, little Avery's adoption was finalized! She is now sister to Fergie, another one of AABR's rescues.

BONNIE IS BACK!!!

I came to AABR over a year ago with very infected ears, icky eyes and lots of other really bad stuff. AABR got me fixed up & healthy & adopted me to a family that promised to love me, take good care of me and never let anything happen to me. They lied!! Mommie Erica got a call from Animal Control saying that they had me!! She didn't even know I was missing! My mommie didn't even look for me at AC until TWO WHOLE DAYS after I left the yard! My adopter spoke to Mommie Beth once, when AABR called her to ask what happened, then NEVER spoke to AABR again! AABR called and emailed her and she never responded! How do you do that? The family was not very good to me after all. My ears are VERY bad again! One of them was oozing down my face!! They also made me FAT! I was a delicate 44lbs (1st pic) when they adopted me and now I'm 57lbs (2nd pic)!! You think that 3rd picture is a happy face? It's not! I'm trying SO hard to breathe. All this weight is not good for a little girl like me. I'm so happy to be back with AABR!! In no time, they will get me back to health (AGAIN) and this time my forever family will be just that....... FOREVER!
