I'd just call another vet then. When you call to make the appt, tell them you need bloodwork done to test for pregnancy. I'd mention her young age as well and stress the importance of planning ahead for this in case she needs a c-section.

Pregnancy has a tendency to bring on behavioral changes. Good luck!

I'd definitely find another vet, if the current one keeps putting you off.

My dog isn't spoiled, I'm just well trained!

Find a new vet. First of all, at 8 weeks you don't need bloodwork to see if she's pregnant, she'll already be near the end of her term. If they're just going to blow you off, you need to find a more reliable vet. As Clark said, she's very young and it's not uncommon at all for English bulldogs to have problems giving birth and you may need to quickly get her to a vet for C-section among other things.
