B is for Bulldog

The bulldog who holds our hearts without raising a paw is Meathead.

Actually his full name is Meathead Augustus Shanks. And like the Caesars of the old Roman Empire, he also holds a high position of honor among the humans, fellow dogs and resident cats.

He is a typical English Bull Dog. He loves his comfort and his exalted position. He snores, and farts and passes wind and flaps his jowls when he eats and drinks. Sometimes food can be found on his eye brows as well as the floor around his dish. But it is no matter. He has eager servants who can clean his face and the floor.

He spends many sleep over nights at his grandma's house - looking just like this picture. He knows his own mind and he probably knows the minds everyone around him - but he just doesn't care about other minds! His mind is the only one that counts!

And, if you ever want to share your life with a bulldog ... you need to know all these things.

But you also need to know that sharing your life with an English Bull Dog is the best of the best!



  1. Hi!
