Spanky @ 3 months
|This picture is
very symbolic: Spanky was my first American Bulldog, i.e., I entered
the American Bulldog with this pup. When I picked him up at the airport,
I was hooked with American Bulldogs. In Spanky, I saw all the potentials
for this great breed and the great innate qualities of the Johnson type
of American Bulldog. Even at this age, he was showing his protection
instincts. Off our property, he loved everyone.

one of his puppy naps. I got him from Mark and Lisa Landers of Mountain
Gator Kennels when he was around 10 weeks old. It was love at first
sight when the family saw Spanky for the first time after I brought him
home from the airport. Look at him. How could anyone resist
this pup?! Spanky also had a great temperment. True protector - he impressed/terrified
agitators - who could be trusted with children.

|Here's a side
profile of Spanky. You can see that he no longer looks like a puppy
but he hasn't really filled out yet either. Just a handsome teenager.
It was around this time that Spanky starting having the size to match his
protective instincts and he terrified "intruders". I think he weighed
around 90lbs. at this point. With the Spankster around, the family
felt safe and secure.

|Unfortunately, Spanky is no longer with us. He was very loved by our family and friends. He loved those close to his heart and they adored him in return. People still talk about how he used to dunk his butt in the swimming pool in the summer time and how he had this grin of relief on his face as he sat there for HOURS. Out of all the dogs we have owned, he is still the one most fondly remembered and thought of. Rest in peace buddy, you deserve it.|
