Gracie’s New Year’s Resolutions

What... dogs can't have resolutions, too?

If you’re reading this, it means you’ve officially survived the holiday season and your New Year’s hangover. Well done, friends! We have a lot of cool stuff planned for 2018, and it would have been a major bummer if the last few weeks had managed to put you out of commission more permanently. Welcome to the new year, bulldoggers!

If you’re already hard at work on your New Year’s resolutions, you’re not alone. We have our own goals for the months ahead, but to be honest, no one — and we mean no one — is more focused on the 2018 plan than everyone’s favorite pooch, Gracie Jane. Like the rest of us, she can feel overwhelmed by resolutions, but her belief in her own bulldog strength is quite literally limitless, so she’s actually pretty chill about the whole thing.

It’s time to turn this over to Grace herself. She has 11 resolutions on deck for the year ahead — she’s an ambitious chick — and we’ll let her fill you in on the details. 

1. Stop being such a flirt. I need to get serious about two to three male dogs. Maybe four. Can I help it that my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard? Honestly, no. But I’m going to try.

2. Work on my skateboarding + snowboarding skillz. I’ve dabbled in extreme sports over the years, but I feel like 2018 is the year that I really reveal my inner badass by perfecting my abilities. (And, yes, skillz is spelled with a “z,” thank you very much.)

3. Stop eating Mom’s plants. I’m told this is a bad habit, and while I don’t entirely understand why snacking on the occasional succulent is such a problem, I guess I’ll try to cut back. Do they make a patch to help wean you off this stuff?

4. Run two miles a day three times a week with my mama. This rockin’ bod doesn’t come easy, people. Mom says it’s smart to mix up your workout routine, so I’m committing to more runs in the new year.

5. Perfect the “heel” command. I’m not much of a follower. (I know this doesn’t come as much of a surprise.) That being said, I think Mom’s life would be a lot easier if I could more consistently buy into this “heel” business. Woof.

6. Keep exploring my new home with cool hikes. Colorado rules, my dudes. I’m pretty psyched to be here, and I hope to see lots more of what this place has to offer from the trails — or, at least, from someone’s arms on the trails. Isn’t that what friends are for?

7. Learn two tricks. You heard it here first, but you can be sure I’ll share all my best stuff on Instagram.

8. Wear less costumes. Shoutout to you, Mom. I know you think I’m pretty cute in these weird outfits (and I obviously am), but I’m just not sure it’s my look. My lack of thumbs is going to make it hard for me to achieve this on my own, so if you could help a sister out here, I’d be forever grateful.

9. Visit the nursing home twice a month. I might give off the impression that I’m some kind of a diva, but I’m really all about giving back. Plus, I can’t wait to make some new friends! Do you think the people at the nursing home will have snacks?

10. Up my Instagram game. I don’t love to live my life so publicly, but I get that being plugged in is the price we pay to be cool. Sigh.

11. Watch more documentaries. A girl’s gotta get her binge watching in, but I feel like I need to step up my game and start checking out some higher-quality content. Does The Crown count? I hear the princes are pretty cute.

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 I'm fairly new to practicing yoga. I love that I can access this from my home so I can get a nice 25-30 minute yoga session in right before I get ready for work. It helps me feel refreshed and energized for the day. I love the different levels and intensity of the sessions, so I can choose which type of class I want to take depending on the way my body feels. I've only been a member for a week but I'm loving this so far!

    bulldog online Rating: 4 out of 5 Good quality soft material. The white is nice and bright. Washed AMAZING! Had two big black stains and was able to get them out and my tank still looks new and white! Tank is a little boxy fitting but super cute with a side knot or back knot! The saying is a perfect reminder of how strong you are physically and mentally no matter where you are in your Bulldog journey! Excited to add to my new collection!!!

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 I took a class last week. It was creative, fun and set to great music. I don't particularly love practicing at home, preferring my studio. This has been a welcome addition to my routine. It changed my mind about streaming class.

    bulldog online Rating: 5 out of 5 No matter your level of yoga or fitness this IS for you!!! I love how it fits my most busy days and laid back! I can do it anywhere! Also I love how you feel stronger after only a short period of doing bulldog and also how it still challenges you months later! There is nothing like it! Love it!!
