    We had our own business (antique store) so our dogs always went to work with us. We got the fat, ugly dog comment every once in a while, but usually got positive comments!

    i couldn't give less of a &*^& (excuse the language, but in this case it think it's appropriate) what people think they know or what they have to say about bullies. to me, it tells me loads about their character. if you cannot see the blinding beauty in a bullies face, you're obviously missing other beautiful things and beings in this world as well. so sad, too bad. makes me feel sorry for them, but just a teense.

    Alot of people in my area don't even know what breed they are! Some women are afraid of Nigel, I guess he looks like he might tear a leg off to them. My vet doesn't like bulldogs, he's a big advocate against puppy mills and knows about all the bullies problems so he doesn't want anyone to buy bulldogs. I guess he figures if people stop buying them, then the breeders will stop breeding them. When we were looking at Talulah's X-ray of her dysplastic hip he gave me this "see what I mean" look. But he is the best vet in town, there are a few others but they focus on livestock.

    Ya I haven't gotten anymore of the lectures by people since that day when I got 2! But yes I agree with most people, I get a lot more compliments then negative. But the negative comments are frustrating. And I hate the fat comment. He's not fat, he's big boned!
