The New and Improved Bulldog?
There was an article about English Bulldogs in a recent edition of the New York Times. It discussed the breeds pitfalls and how there is an effort underway to bring about serious changes in the bulldog. They do have a plethora of health problems ranging from respiratory to skin infections to eye ailments etc etc! I am all for improving the genetics of the breed. It would make for a healthier dog and would result in less suffering for the animal and its owner. Some say it would take away the cuteness factor. I don't think so, as long as they have the same loving temperament I could live with the physical changes.
Ozzie has commented that he feels he is a perfect specimen of a bulldog. Perhaps in Ozzie's world he is but just talk to his vet and my checking account. They will give you a different opinion!
Don't worry Oz we love you just the way you are!
