I doubt many vets would have given Stella much of a shot at hitting 3 years old, but today she celebrates her third birthday! Her health has remained good, thank in large part to our diligence at keeping her cool and calm, and giving her fresh lemon halves to chew on as often as possible. We have been doing it for so long, she now thinks of lemon halves as toys to be chased, played with and bitten! Even our lab / pitbull mix Rufus tries to play with the lemon, although you can tell he's not too sure what all the fuss is about :)
Here is a recent video and some pics of Stella being her crazy, lovable self. I hope all of your bulldogs (and all pets) are doing well, and feel free to comment with any questions or to share your stories.
Happy Birthday Stella!
