Bulldog Spotlight—Fatty Cakes

I know what you are thinking. But I happen to love my name. In fact it is the only name that “fits” me! Get it? My name is Fatty Cakes.

I have a few health issues and my former parents spent a small fortune on me. But things just didn’t seem to get better. So they hoped rescue, with all their resources, could get to the bottom of my problems. So I was taken to see Dr. Larsen and her staff. Dr. Larsen said I was too big for her lap, so she got down on the floor with me and checked me all out.

I think I am going to like her, but she has already mentioned losing a few pounds, but she explained why. She said, “Fatty Cakes, you are just too sweet, but your breathing scares me and probably does you. You turn blue when you move around. We will get you to a surgeon and he will shorten your palate that is causing you to choke. But to help you even more, you do need to lose a few pounds.” I also have lots of eye problems. I have dry eye and glaucoma. Dr. Larsen says that is unusual for a girl my age. She thinks it is because of my weight and breathing difficulties. We will check it with an eye doctor after my surgery.

From her foster mom: "Cakes, Cakey Cakes, Cakester…this girl will answer to them all. I have never seen more personality in a bulldog than Cakes. We all know that this precious girl needs to lose a few pounds and usually a plump bulldog, or any dog, usually means a lazy dog. Um, not her. She darts, jukes and will bull rush you like she is a lithe greyhound! All the while sounding like a happy motorboat chugging down a lake. When Cakes came into Rescue, she couldn’t see well at all, but now, she has eagle eyes with some care and eye drops. Honestly, the “blindness” didn’t even slow her down. She believes in living life to the fullest! We think she spent a fair amount of her time in a crate as she is still peeing on her bedding or blankets, but Cakes is also doing her business outside, too. Cakes gets along with boy or girl dogs with no problem and seems to enjoy their company. When she goes for walks, she is all-out in the beginning, pulling against the harness, so she needs more work in that department.

She has no toy or food aggression and she is just a joy to foster. She makes her foster mom and dad smile and laugh…with her, of course."





Attention Bulldog Nation—#NTxGiving Day

On Thursday, September 19, Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue is participating in the 11th Annual North Texas Giving Day, a one day online giving extravaganza!

With your help, last year we successfully raised $23,650 toward the care and rehabilitation of Bulldogs in our program. That was an incredible accomplishment for us and we are extremely grateful for your support.

North Texas Giving Day inspires people to give back to the community, and we would like to invite you to join the movement and help us reach our goal. All funds raised will go toward vet bills for our dogs. Our vet bills will exceed $200,000 this year.

Here is how you can help.

1. Get up and give on September 19!
Your gift matters! On September 19 if you donate to Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue between 6am and midnight, your dollars will be stretched with bonus funds and prizes raised by the Communities Foundation of Texas.

Not available on September 19? No worries! Click here on September 9 and schedule your donation in advance. You can set up a donor profile and schedule your donation between September 9 and September 19. A confirmation page will be generated, and your donation will be taken on September 19, and then a tax-deductible receipt will be generated to your email.

2. Spread the word!
Help us get the message out to friends, family, coworkers, book clubs, church groups, basically everyone who will listen! Make sure to tag @LSBCR and use #NTxGivingDay when posting online. You can go to the same webpage and start your own fundraiser for LSBCR. Just click the “Create a Fundraiser” button on the top right and follow the easy process.
