 All my pets are dead.... at least I wish they were. People talk about those who abuse their pets but never do they mention those who are abused by their pets..... too many scars to count....

 A french bulldog looks a bit like a typical French: falsely intellectual and kind of in a bad mood ;-)

Otherwise, about bulldogs: ``Snoring, farting, being a potato.`` Haha!!! best definition ever!!

 I understand how old mate with the French bulldog feels. I have 2 of them and if I lit an open flame in my house it would most likely explode. Funny dogs, fart lots. 10/10 would belly rub again.

 @Brasher: yes indeed... a friend of mine used to have a black and white french bulldog - who didn`t live long unfortunately. It mostly looked like a piglet rather than like a dog, and I remember that very often we had to open the windows to renew the air `cos that tender beast was a restless gas factory Smile
Not the kind of dog for a smoker, definitely not!!!
