Ricky: Our first Bulldog, Ricky was four months old when
we brought him from Gina & Terry.
We had been looking for a special puppy for a long time, this day
we were in luck.
I walked through the door to find this deep red cute puppy who had
been kept back to show, but with another litter there Gina had
decided to sell Ricky.
We could not believe our luck, we had seen a few pups
but this one was outstanding.
It was instant love and devotion... We had no intention to show,
stud, or even get 'into' Bulldogs, but thanks to
Gina, Terry & Cher everything changed...
We have met and made some very special friends along the way,
thank you all.
We lost our beloved Ricky on Friday 21st April, 2006
in our House Fire.
We are totally devastated and miss him terribly.
Everybody loved Ricky, he really was a very special Bulldog as
they all are.
Ricky was coming up for his 6th birthday. He was loved
by everyone, he was so good with our children and Foster Children,
they pulled him about, dressed him up in girls clothes, painted
his toe nails even! He never complained, he just
loved and protected them.
He did well at the shows and he loved getting in the ring and
strutting his stuff. He was a great Dog and had some stud
work and has produced some fabulous puppies.
We have his Daughter Lola and his Grand Daughter Tia, so he
lives on in our hearts and in our Bulldogs...
We took Ricky for his last walkies to Rainbow Bridge, where
he ran off, turned around and gave us a big "High Five"
before running over the Bridge!
Forever in our hearts until we meet again...

We would like to thank all of you for your kind words of support,
cards, messages and calls.
We were astounded at the response and this kept us strong so we
could keep on supporting Tia and Lola while they were in The Queen
Mother Hospital For Animals at The Royal Veterinary College.
I was able to resuscitate Tia and after 9 days in Hospital
and Lola's 7 days they are now home and both our girls are making
a good recovery and are even more spoilt than
We would like to thank the Following Friends and Professionals who
helped clean up our house and supported us and our dogs in this
traumatic time, we would not have got through it without them:
My Sister Dawn. All
the boys at Dartford Fire Station.
The Vets and Nurses at Mead Road Veterinary Surgery - Dartford.
Rob, Karen, Bev and all the ITU Vets and Nurses at the Queen
