    Default attracting a lot of attention at the dog park

    How do you handle when other dog owners at the dog park are alarmed by your bulldog's brachycephalic breathing issues? I never let him get to the point that his breathing is labored, but I tend to get a lot of looks of concern/judgment.

    I just mention that my baby sounds like a gremlin when she plays and people laugh! The bullies are a lil box of surprises when it comes to noises

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    Jake can run circles around most dogs without breathing noisily..AND with a ball in his mouth! But we don't go to dog parks ...he is quite the retriever!

    People thought Mimi (RIP) was broken when we stepped a few feet away from her. My wife called it separation anxiety. They do Make some funny noises. Can't describe the noises, not even going to try.

    That's my Angus! He's only a year old though (we celebrated his bday 2 weeks ago). He can play soccer for an hour before he flops down in complete exhaustion. But yeah, he makes those almost-like-he's-dying noises and snores like an F-14 flyby... People at the dog park think he's growling and they give me bad looks until they got to know him. Now, he's a popular dog because he will play nice with anybody, even the little dinky toy dogs. He's the super omega dog and he would lay down and expose his neck to the tiny yippity Yo-Quero-Taco-Bell dogs that go to that park... quite shameful really. LOL.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    HRH doesn't go to dog parks. Her mommy is paranoid and won't walk around in such places. When we do go to doggy functions though there are almost always other bullies around with owners who understand.

    ROFL: so true.

    Only if something is said to me, will I respond - it is normal. I do not go to dog parks but when we are out with them someplace and it happens, people do look, but I ignore them.
