What type of bulldog?
Ill assume british and not french or american.
British bulldogs are very family friendly, no bulldogs are for new owners in my opinion, french and british are among the most pig headed stubborn dogs I have ever met, and they constantly challange you for dominance.
For it to be in a healthy family it needs an owner that understands what is dominant behaviour and what is not, when to treat it and when not.
An example of how pig headed they can be, if you try to walk a bulldog that you are not dominent over, it may just sit on the ground, wont move, will just sit because it knows you want to walk, you can drag it all the way down the road on its ass, and it will just sit and look at you and keep trying to walk the other way.
When you get the balance right, they are the funniest full of charachter dogs you can meet. They really are amazing.
You can do it as a first dog, but read up a lot on dominant behaviour, and think about taking it to training classes,
I know a lot about dogs, and it took me about 3 months to win a french bulldog over and it was 3 months of pretty much hell as she pulled every trick in the book rather than submit. One time she even bit me, which is very very rare for the breed, and it took me for total surprise as I was just sitting on the chair and she looke in my face like "" then bit my shoulder, some set of jaws on them..
Lol but yeah, great dog, get ready for possibly a huge battle with them, but thats half the fun of them, when they do something stubborn like sit somewhere and wont move, you laugh about it later.
Did you bite her back?

get a lab. They are soppy lovely animals.
I have a springer (as well as a lab) and he is great but I'd still say labrador.
Does it know its not your favourite?
If anything the spaniel is, I'm talking purely on good with kids. If I have to stick my hands in their mouth to pull something out the lab wouldn't bite me if I did it 1000 times.
The spaniel might 1/100.
Think pinky and the brain, pinky is lovely and sweet etc but the brain is the star.
Yes I can vouch for the springer and the labrador.
I was bit in the face by one of our springers, which I now have 2 scars on my nose, who didn't like food/toys etc being disturbed or taken.
The lab we have is a sweetie. She'll just happily play with you, or sit by your side or on your lap or something, she loves the attention, I can easily take her toys right out of her mouth without her barking/growling/biting, and the same with her food, I can take that away just as easily.
(Above) This is the git that bit me. Brandy, died at 14 (we had to put him down last october, old age, was always in pain around the time we put him down)
(Above) This is the other springer, Sophie died about 7/8 years old a few years ago (Also had to put her down, she had jaundice/liver failer and was unrecoverable)
(Above) This is Fern, the white lab we currently have. She's just coming up to 2 years old, love her to bits.

Did you bite her back?
I did, although youre not really supposed to, i bit her on the shoulder, she looked shocked and i nearly laughed, then i did the proper thing and made her submit. It was all a joke with her though, she would pretend to submit then walk back over to you like " yeah, youre not the boss of me, i just said that to shut you up"
