bulldog birthday party.

in-between a costco run, baby shower, scout activity, getting ready for mark & julie’s reception, and my mom and brother flying into town, we made it to bailey’s birthday party (kingsley’s bulldog friend) on saturday (she turned 3) with 18 other bulldogs at the park!
yep….18 bulldogs were in attendance!
from 3 1/3 months old to 12 years…. it was amazing.
and since the weather was so lovely and we were on schedule (thank you josh), kingsley got to play with all his bulldog friends for almost 2 hours.
kingsley is the one in the blue harness (not to be confused with little bart who is close to his same size in the blue collar).

L-R: bart, scarlet, forget this one’s name, and really big jack.

kingsley and josh.

this is pork chop (or porky.) how adorable is she?

let’s make a big bulldog pile!

love the side swept tongue. adorable.

and this wrinkly face? priceless.
our little mister kingsley and his tongue.

i think this one is pearl? or winston.

we love our little bulldog club in DC. it’s a lot of fun to be a part of.
the bulldogs are beautiful and their owners are great!
and we love kingsley more and more every day. he is such a fun little puppy!

    that looks like so much fun! oh my gosh they are all so adorable. especially little kingsley :)

  2. wow! looks like a lot of fun. you've inspired me to find/create a Boston Terrier club in my area, i'd love to see a few dozen of them together like this! thanks for sharing :)

  3. im at work giggling out loud at those pictures! especially the one where they look like they're having a little group meeting! haha i cant believe how adorable they are, i never thought i'd be a fan of bulldogs but you guys have conformed me!

  4. Bulldogs are the best dogs, ever! They have so much personality! I can't imagine what a whole group of them would be like. We're expecting a puppy in April (born March 1st!), and it is the only breed we will ever own again!

    oh my, this is the cutest thing i have ever seen! they're so adorable piled on top of each other!

    p.s. i loved the wild things reference ;) let's make a pile!

  41. Cathi

    We love doggie parties! Our dog didn't invite their friends over on their birthday because they weren't quite as cordial as Kingsley is with his friends. What we did do is everyone (dogs included) loaded up in the Suburban and delivered doggie treats to all the doggie acquaintances.

  42. Shauna

    love kingsley! and congrats to your friends mark and julie! and i love your dress that you wore to their reception!

  43. oh my goodness these are all SO CUTE!!! All the wrinkles and faces and the piles and bow legs.. awww.

  45. Rhianne

    this looks like the best party ever! I can not wait to get a dog now and I love catching up with your blog after weekends away :) it always makes my day!

  46. Oh my! Oh my! So cute- what a fabulous party. So glad you guys were able to attend & Kingsley had a good time :)


  47. This is hilarious! So glad Kingsley has some friends who don't ignore him or find him pesty (like the big dogs he met during the blizzard)! Yay for bulldog love!

    OH MY GOODNESS! how do you handle all the cuteness??

  50. oh my goodness! how adorable is this!
    when I first began reading your blog a few weeks ago it was when you were writing on behalf of kingsley, I mean when Kingsley took over your blog, and as a dog fanatic (a little over-obsessive) I shared it with my mom (who is even more of a dog-lover) and she thought it was the greatest thing in the world. I do too, and that's why I look forward to reading your lovely posts all the time!!!!

  51. Risley

    OMG! how cute! I have a 3 1/2 year old bulldog!
