Saying Hello

Post by Staff Bull on Sat Mar 26 2016, 09:16

Hi guys,
My name is Jamie and I'm from the Wirral.
I have a stunning blue Staffordshire called Ice. He's almost one.
I had a black and white bitch before him called Roxy but I lost her to a brain tumour 2yrs ago, she was almost 13, I swore I'd never get another one coz it broke my heart. Then my wife and kids got to work on me and I got in touch with the man I got my Roxy off 14yrs ago and he was still breeding. So a little trip to his and the Ice plan was hatched.
He arrived on the 8th April and I picked him up 8wks later. Best thing I've ever done. He's made my house and family complete again and is an absolute joy to be around. We love him.
Anyway nice to be on here. Hopefully can share in some of your experiences with the most loyal, loving, caring and happy dogs in the world, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Jamie.

Hi Jamie and welcome to the forum Smile
Sorry to hear of the loss of Roxy (lost my girl of 13 to a brain tumour 18months ago) and know the heartbreak and pain you will have gone through. How lovely to hear of your new furbaby Ice who has made your family complete again

Thanks Ian. He's me best mate.

Willsblueboy, Ice is 11 months old. He is 1 on 8th April. He weighs a touch under 30kg. He's a big lad. His Dad was called BJ after BJ Bear and he's huge. His Mum is called Ice also and she is also big so I guess Ice is gonna get a bit bigger yet. He's kc registered and microchipped. My surname is Pickup and Ices kc name is Pickups Lad. He is a lot bigger than my last Bull Terrier Roxy, but she was a bitch so he's gonna be bigger anyway.

Ahh guys, thanks to you all so much for your lovely comments about Ice. He really is a special boy. We nearly lost him 3wks after we got him. He caught a parasite and it nearly killed him. It's a long story. We had to leave him at vets all day but at 5pm it was either we send him to the animal hospital where I lost Roxy or take him home and stay up all night medicating him. So home with us he came. We got him comfy and stayed with him all night giving him water and meds through a syringe. We all fell asleep on the couch and at 4am I was woken by a little wet nose and a tongue licking my face. He was bouncing round the house like he was at a party. If you had have seen how lifeless and limp he was at 5pm you wouldn't believe it was the same dog.
We took him back to the vets the next day and the vet couldn't believe he survived. He's our little soldier and we love him dearly. The vets absolutely adore him and we couldn't thank them enough for helping our boy.
As you can see he is fighting fit and the most loving dog I've ever met. Hearing you guys saying the things you are about him means the world to us. Thank you all so much.
Jamie & Caz(My wife).

This is Roxy (black and white, on the right) who I lost to a brain tumour with her sister Stella, who my brother also lost with a brain tumour 5 months before I lost Roxy. They were a pair of characters and we miss them dearly.

Jamie Ice looks absolutely gorgeous, what a lovely big boy too! I'm sorry to hear about Roxy, she was obviously a very special dog to make such an impact on you.
I honestly can't imagine what you went through as the idea of losing Rio utterly breaks me, but i have always said that i could never not have a dog again as they just seem to make life better, and I'm glad you and Ice found each other.

Welcome to the forum from me and Rio Smile looking forward to seeing more of Ice
