    Default How the bulldog got his face

    @cadillactaste thread reminded me of a poem I got from somewhere (I can't remember where!? I had it cut and pasted into my notes for a chapter in my writing!) that I thought I would share...I hope you enjoy!

    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, 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!!

    Linus is a bad example of an ugly face.
