20 Things that Only Bulldog Owners Would Understand

dog

There are so many different types of bulldogs that it’s almost impossible not to find one you totally love and adore, and that’s why so many people have one or another. Some even have several. But there are things about the bulldogs that only some people will understand, and it’s just like anything else; you don’t get it until you have one of your own. And the same goes for the French bulldog. You might think you know this dog; but you don’t know this dog. If you have one, however, there are a few things that only you will understand.

They’re Funny Sleepers

Who doesn’t love a dog that falls asleep half on a table and half on a chair? These are dogs that can literally fall asleep just about anywhere and in any position. It’s a shame that they’re not so good on flights, seeing as how they’d benefit most from the uncomfortable and awkward sleeping positions the rest of us have to suffer through when we travel.

The Drool is Out of Control

If you have a bulldog of any variety, you get this one. You know that the drool is out of control. It’s insane. It’s crazy and it’s absolutely disgusting; and it’s absolutely gross. And you will learn to live with it and love it and have fun with it, because that is your job and that’s what you do. May we recommend some baby wipes and some cleaner to help you out with this small issue?

They’re Funny

The bulldog is a regular old comedian. This is a dog that has a sense of humor and he or she is happy to share that with you at any time. Even if you are not in the mood, this is a dog that wants nothing more than to play with you, perform for you and make sure you are enjoying the show. And they think they are funny, but you know that they are.

They Love the Lap

No matter whether you have a tiny French bulldog or a much bigger type, they never outgrow the lap. In fact, they’re kind of like overgrown children in that they are going to find a way to spend time on your lap whenever possible because they love you so and just want to spend that time with you when they can. It’s just how they are and it’s what they do. They’re overgrown lap dogs and babies with so much need for your attention. And you’ll love it.

They Love their People

On a good note, you’re going to love this dog and it’s going to love you in return. It’s a fun dog with a fun personality, and it’s going to be a dog that is loyal and wonderful to you. You know if you have one that this is a dog that finds you to be the best person that ever existed, and that there is not a time in which you can find this dog wanting to ignore you. In fact, sometimes you might wish it would ignore you for five minutes so you can rest.

Puppies Give Wrinkles New Meaning

When you see a new wrinkle in the mirror, life as you know it seems to end. When you see a bulldog puppy with a new wrinkle, you get all kinds of excited and crazed because of its cuteness, and we can’t blame you. This adorable little dog is seriously the sweetest thing with all its wrinkles and its crazy adorable little face. You won’t find a dog sweeter or more adorable, and you’ll begin to see wrinkles in a whole new light. Until you see them on yourself, of course.

They’re the Sloppiest Kissers

People love to kiss the bulldog, and you they can’t figure out why. These are the sloppiest little kissing dogs, but people still want to have those kisses. With their tongues everywhere, drool all over the place and just a big old mess to speak of, it’s kind of gross. But you won’t be able to stop yourself from getting and giving kisses to this little mess regardless. It’s just that cute and that sweet.

Their Tongue is Always Out

If your bulldog’s tongue is not out of his or her mouth on a regular basis, you might assume that it’s missing. This is a dog who seems to have a perpetual lollygag to its tongue. It’s always out the side of his or her mouth and it’s always just hanging there. It goes back to the previous issue about all the drool and the gross that comes from that when you have a dog like this.

Dress them Up all You Want

If you love a dog that loves to dress up, this is the breed for you. You know, having one, that you can put this breed in anything from a tutu for a tea party with the kids to a fur coat to keep him warm in the winter. They don’t care; they know they look good so they’re happy with you allowing them to dress up and look cool for long periods of time. They are certainly all right with that as a whole.

They’re Great for Kids

Some people think that these are mean dogs with mean faces and mean personalities. They’ve obviously never owned one, however, since this could not be further from the truth. In fact, this is a dog breed that belongs with kids and people who love to cuddle. It’s sweet and gentle and a little bit lazy and it really is just going to stand there and take it from those who are giving it to him.

They Snore

If you can learn to sleep through the snoring of a bulldog, you can sleep through just about anything. If you are a light sleeper and you can’t handle the snoring, we bet you have a creative way to handle the noise. These are snoring dogs, and you know that they’ll keep you up all night long if you are unable to sleep through it. On a good note, though, your kids can sleep through anything with a dog like this making noise from day one.

They Love to Help you with the Lawn

Ah, yes, the lawn. It is quite nice to have an animal just as concerned with the height of the grass as you, and it’s helpful that you can count on him to help you keep things trimmed neatly. It’s just too bad the dog likes to eat the grass in massive chunks right out of the ground. It would be far more helpful if he or she would just learn to ride the lawnmower around and save you a few hours every weekend. But you know, beggars cannot be choosers when it comes to good yard maintenance and good help.

They’re a bit Lazy

Can you eat an entire meal lying on your side? Yeah, we did not think so. This breed, however, can do just that. An entire meal eaten while lying down seems to be a quite an accomplishment, and that’s kind of cool. But really, though, the bulldog can do just this and without any effort. It kind of makes you jealous that they have the option to relax and rest while eating.

They’re Stubborn

If you own a bulldog, you know this one. You know that this is a dog so much like a child it’s not even funny. When you tell the dog it’s time to come in for the evening, it will shake its head at you and act as if you have lost your mind. Clearly, it is not time to come inside and you don’t know what it is you are speaking of. If the dog could talk to you, I bet it would ask you for just five more minutes to keep playing. Please, please, please! Just 5 more minutes?

They Snort

Aside from the fact that they also snore, these are dogs that like to snort at you to get things noticed. It’s like they want to make sure you know they have something to say, and they’re going to say it regardless. And they say it by snorting. Loudly. All the time. It’s a nasty little habit that will certainly drive you nuts, but it’s one that might make you laugh at times. At best, it’s a great party trick.

They Need a Life Vest

Bulldogs can’t swim; at all. They are not like animals that love to swim. They are more like animals that love water and that want to spend time in water, but they don’t have the ability to actually swim. Most people think their dogs will just jump in, get what they want and move on. The bulldog, however, will sink immediately to the bottom of the water and not swim. The good news is that you totally have a gorgeous collection of stylish bulldog life vests for your little love.

They’re Not Fat

Nothing makes you angrier than hearing people call your little bulldog fat. He is not fat. He’s stocky. You know it, and you absolutely cannot figure out what it is about this dog that other people can’t see. Perhaps if he had longer legs he’d look a little leaner and fitter. But, he doesn’t have longer legs and so therefore he is totally just fat in the eyes of others. He’s not, though, so other people can just be quiet and say nothing about it.

Their Look is as Mean as they Get

Bulldogs are so often believed to be mean. Perhaps it is the ‘bull’ in their name. But they are not mean. Their look is the extent of their mean behavior, and even that is not all that mean. I mean, how can anyone find a dog that has a tongue hanging out of its mouth at all times mean? It’s not mean; it’s sweet and loving and so not even close to mean any way, shape or form. This is a dog that gets a bad rap for a reason that we can’t figure out, but that’s okay. There are just more bulldogs for you to love now that people think they are mean.

They Give Meaning to the Term “Puppy Dog Eyes”

You know this look and you hate this look when you don’t love this look. Seriously; it is the look of the puppy dog eyes, and no one can make this look quite like a bulldog of any size or shape. They’re big, they’re shiny and sparkly, and they are so sweet and asking that you just forget you said no about something. This dog has perfected the look and that’s why they usually get everything they want. You cannot say no to something that looks at you like this. We need to practice the look, too.

They’ll Make you Happy

Dogs that make you happy are abundant. Everyone will tell you that their dog makes them happy regardless of the breed or the age or the size. But there is something very special about the bulldog and there is no denying that. This is a dog that really does make you feel happy and loved and content, and there is no other dog quite like it. In fact, we bet you will not be able to go the rest of your life without having a dog like this in your home. It’s like an addiction you cannot beat.
