The front for the dragon sweater has intarsia knitting in it. This is my first real experience with this technique, and it's been a little more difficult than I had anticipated. I have started it about 3 times now, and it ...

I think I have had a revelation this week. I have been trying to work frantically on items for Christmas, and have made some progress, only to have it undone because I didn't double check. Eh, such is life. So I will have ...

This past week has been filled with...well, let's just say it's been full. Nothing major here on the homefront, but since Tuesday everyone has been tense. Wednesday provided even more tension, and it continues. I am not a ...

I used Bulldog eight years ago for a local move and had a wonderful experience. So when it came time for a long distance move, I immediately called Bulldog again. I was sorely disappointed. The movers were later than expected, having a high volume of work and having to pick up an extra truck. I was okay with that and understood, as it was summer. Then, as they put my furniture on the trucks, no mattress bags were used and no wrap was used for my recliners and sofa (all leather) either. My mattresses were dirty upon arrival and one of my leather recliners has holes in the back. The roll of plastic wrap that is used was in one of their carts with the mattress pads. This could have been prevented if they had used proper precaution. Although they tore down my master bed, once they arrived, they did not set it up, and proceeded to load boxes in the room, making it near impossible to set it up for that evening. My husband had to move almost every single box in the room in order to set up the bed so we could sleep that night. They also did not break down a twin bed frame, and loaded it fully set up in a storage unit (a huge waste of space). When arriving at my old house, they removed a nut from the storm door so they could get in and out more easily - understandable. However, they never replaced it. I also provided water and Gatorade for the movers, and found the bottles littering my yard, even though trash cans were available. Part of my belongings had to go into storage, and they stood my sofa on end. Now my husband and I have to re-stack the entire storage unit because they did not load the furniture in it properly (bookshelves are in the middle of the room, instead of against a wall and things are horribly disorganized and space is inefficiently used). When I called to let them know of these issues, I spoke with Lori Mullinax. She asked that I email her so that she could answer my concerns point by point, which I did. After getting all the details of my move, along with my issues, I got no response. I had to email her again, and got nothing other than I had a $300 deductible which should fix the chair that was damaged. I did not receive any apologies for the poor service or behavior of the crew. I am not new to the world of moving - my family has moved numerous times (this was my personal 12th move, and all but 2 of them have been long distance). My family has also worked for moving companies and owned moving companies. I will never use Bulldog Movers again and will greatly discourage anyone from using them. They may not have broken anything or been rude, but you can definitely receive better service somewhere else for the same amount of money.
