  • How the Bulldog Got It's Face

    How the Bulldog Got It's Face

    When the good Lord gave out faces to the dogs long, long ago...
    He found when he had issued them there was still one dog to go.

    "Where's this dogs face?" he called aloud, "I know I must have made it."
    There must be someone hereabouts who's clumsily mislaid it

    A shy young Angel then stepped up, "Forgive me Lord," he said,
    He stuttered and he stammered and turned a little red,

    "I never thought it was a face, it fell out of your bag,
    I thought you had discarded it and it was just a piece of rag.

    So, I promptly went and used it for so very many things
    Like polishing up the halos and waxing up the wings.

    It's creased and crumpled as you see, in truth it's a disgrace,
    I don't know how my dearest Lord you can use it for a face.

    I realize it's all my fault there's no one else to blame,
    I trust you can forgive me Lord, my hearts so full of shame!"

    "Of course I have forgiven you, but here we've got a mess.
    So, I'll make amends to this poor dog and him I'll truly bless.

    He'll be called an English Bulldog, as that's about the only place
    where people are so silly as to love an ugly face!

    But he'll be kind and gentle, and of courage he'll be full
    As well as love and loyalty, the lovely ugly bull."

    And that is why my children, in that long gone year of grace
    the dear old English Bulldog got his lovely ugly face!!

      He sure got that right but obviously misjudged how loveable that "ugly face" is to the rest of the world.

      What a cute poem! I tell children that Til ran into a wall when she was little (too true) and that is why her face is smushed. HA.
