    I'd had to make him think. I'd said "British Bull Dog" or wouldn't have commented at all. Try that one on for Irish lol

    Now Dexter is small for his age at 40# but he's not that small. I get a is he still a puppy? And the pit bull thing all the time... Some people just don't know their breeds.

    I absolutely love that the people in my neighborhood do this and they stop when I have him out to say he has grown and what a beautiful dog he has gotten to be. So far I haven't had any stupid questions myself and my all time number one favorite is he is absolutely beautiful what breeder did you get him from I want to contact them to get one.

    What a good girl! You have raised her right!

    I don't remember where I heard it(probably from EBN), but a good reply to this phrase that people say often: Bulldogs are so agly that they are almost beautilful is...you're so stupid that you're almost smart...

    I've gotten all everyone of those questions: asking if they're pitbulls, they're so ugly they're cute, a face only a mother could love, aren't they sick and die young, etc. But luckily 95% of the time I get compliments on how adorable they are! Actually just the other day I was getting gas and the guy parked next to me opened his window and pointed at Gio laughing saying he was the best looking dog he has ever seen, he then asked if I bred him because he wanted one of Gio's puppies! I don't breed any of my dogs but right before he left he said he was going right home to beg his wife to get a bulldog! I was really flattered at how excited this guy and his daughter got over Gio!

    I just can't get over how "ugly" some people think they are! I'm sorry but a long snout just isn't for me, I have to have that loud grunting, snoring, and breathing to feel at home. Then again, I was raised with Bostons and Pugs and did rescue work for a Pug rescue so perhaps I was 'born' this way LOL
