    Default the bulldog flop

    Frank doesn't do anything gently... he seems to crash through life with a smile and, in typical bully fashion, has never really realized how big he is. (I type this from under a snoring Frank at his very moment, while my legs fall asleep)

    Anyway, when he goes to lay down he just flops, pretty hard, he doesn't ease himself into a laying position at all! It's this normal for a bully? The first time he did it I panicked... I thought he had collapsed and passed out! Another other bully floppers out there?

    In my case it is normal as my Harlea does flop/plop down a lot. She has learned not to do it so much on the wood floors though.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    As I visualize his 'hell bent for leather' mad dash thru life & huge grin,
    it makes me grin! Have had a male & female bully, yes, they are like Frank.
    Bullies are sturdy & tough, no worries!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Canelo is Baby Huey and a bull in a china shop. He flops, he runs and mows things down like he's tiny. He has even fallen off the couch while sleeping, hit the floor and was still sleeping, wakes and looks around like hey, what happened. OMG, I'm laughing now, he cracks us up non stop, he has no grace. And yes he's tough though I worry about him when he falls off the couch. The last time he fell off the couch, he landed on his head and his body was against the couch and he stayed this way for about 5 seconds then gravity took over and his body slid sideways to the ground. I almost wet myself that day.

    Chubbs is semi graceful until it's playtime. Then he just flat out flops around like a fish out of water.

    When Mabel goes down, she flops--especially on the wood floors. We've had other dogs that did this, so we weren't surprised.

    Ruckus seems to just let his legs fall out from under him and belly flop onto the floor when he wants a nap. I used to think he fell or ran into something because the noise was so loud, but now I know it's just nap time!
