Before and After
I came across a painting from 1790 ( yes around the time of my birth) that depicted an English Bulldog of that era. Quite a difference in comparison to our modern day bullie. Taller, leaner with a longer, more pronounced snout it is nothing like what we have come to love in a bulldog. They sure look a lot more athletic! Definitely not to be found taking long naps on the couch or huffing and puffing going up stairs! I showed the picture to Ozzie. He was unimpressed. So just that you all can appreciate the Bulldog of 2010 I have posted the "before and after" pictures. I myself prefer the pushed in nose and the heavy broad chest and the "cowl" of fat around the neck ( in Ozzie's case ). Well you be the judge!
