    Right! the other day the family went on ferry ride to San Juan, and I had to put Zeus in a Dog Carriage, and the employee told me "Oh! what an ulgy baby" I snapped back and told him but not as ulgy as you!!!

    Damn!! Did they have to pick their chin up off the floor? lol ouch.

    When I first brought up getting a Bully as our first family dog my wife said they were kinda ugly and weird looking. That was until we were at a pet store picking up stuff for my daughters hamster and they happened to have a bulldog there. Ive always wanted one and asked her and my daughter if they wanted to check him out. Literally 2 seconds playing with the pup they both fell in love. We found a breeder and are hopefully bringing a pup home come August. Of course now all bullys are now adorable to all of us!!

    Bulldogs have a special way of winning your heart....I personally think it's their eyes
    I could swim in a bully's eyes and forget a whole load of problems

    A few months ago I take Mocha to our favorite doggie store to buy the Cocount oil for her. Well everyone loves Mocha and everytime we go there they are all obver Her. Well, this man was checking out of the store looks at Mocha and says, "Ugh, she looks like a pot belly pig." I gave him a look and told him that tha wasnt a very nice thing to say to someones pet. I wa so mad , but I was polite. He apologized.Some people are so rude.

    I even laugh off the so ugly she's cute and face only a mother could love comments.

    My reply is Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we think she's the most beautiful dog EVER!

    Quite honestly we often call HRH Miss Piggy...she oinks when she's eating, I swear. And even though she's not a bit overweight she does appear kind of portly to most people.

    Every where we go we Tubs gets mawed and he loves it. Today I was picking my daughter up from school and parked next to a guy waiting for his kids. Tubs stuck his head out of the window and the guy immediately got out of his car and started asking a lot of questions about bulldogs in general. He was very nice. Later in the day we went to our neighborhood lake for a girl scout meeting to work in the garden the girls maintain there. A bunch of girls were walking around the lake with their mo's, and they came running up to him. I think there were about 6-8 girls immediately surrounding him. They were mostly little girls, but one old girls came over with them and said "oh he is so fat!" If she wasn't a kid I would have laid into her and said "yes he is big, but look at his slender waist. That means he is a healthy weight and not fat." I would have also told her to take a look at how big his paws are and educate her on the fact that he needs to grow into those paws! My little man has always been a big boy and always will, don't come up to me and say "Awww what a lard butt!"

    SERIOUSLY??? Now that's just truly offensive .... he didn't know you and Vegas and comes out with bull- like that. Kudos to you for biting your tongue and not saying anything to him!!

    The whole "hes so ugly he's cute" comment doesn't bother me, but it REALLY ticks my 8yo daughter off. A neighbor said that about two weeks ago and she is still fuming!

    It REALLY pisses me off ... I mean really. I just don't see it. My daughter is a very beautiful teenager and I would get just as angry if somebody called her ugly. I'm sorry ... I may be blind, but my bulldogs are just NOT ugly!! They are more beautiful than most people... so maybe it's their souls that I see and not their faces!!!

    Don't apologise .... I think you'll find a lot of bully owners are just as protective!!! To us, they are beautiful ....

    i don't get mad when people are just ignorant and don't know what butler is, i just figure they must bang rocks together for fire because who DOESN'T know what a bully is?! BUT, i can no longer handle people telling me he is ugly. I am not nice about it anymore. Some old lady told me "He's got a face only a mother could love" and I told her "I'm sure i could say the same about your children" and just the other day at the pet expo someone says "He sure is ugly with those teeth" so i said "You are as ugly as you are rude". I do not like chihuahuas, chinese crested, shitzus, or most little dogs for that matter, but i would never go out of my way to make a nasty comment to an owner of one. that is just RUDE!

    Most of the time people go "oh my god he is so cute" and give him kisses so i guess it's okay. not everyone can be awesome.
