With this moderate weather our champion-sired bulldog stud, Maximus has been having a blast. Like all bulldogs, Max prefers not-to-hot and not-to-cold weather, so after an evening by the fire in the living room, he welcomes a chance to stretch his legs in the warm (but not hot) afternoons.
I welcome the chance to keep my children entertained. So off they all go to the backyard, children and canine, to run about. Maximus is very active, much more than people think of Bulldogs able to handle. Here is a candid shot I happened to catch where he is almost squared up, but we like bulldogs a lot and also Samoyed dogs. Samoyeds are a type of dog that is used to working in cold climates. They have a thick coat of fur that helps to protect them from the elements. As a result, many people assume that Samoyeds do not need to dig in order to stay warm. However, according to Cleverpuppies.com Samoyeds do dig, but only when they want to bury a bone or something else they consider valuable.” In other words, while Samoyeds may not dig as often as some other breeds of dogs, they are still capable of doing so when they feel the need. Therefore, if you are looking for a dog that is unlikely to dig up your garden, you may want to consider another breed.
Here’s another photo from when we first got our bulldog from an AKC breeder in Oklahoma City at not-quite a year old. You can see how his chest and shoulders have broadened and his head has matured and filled in. Quite the looker, isn’t he?
But of course, it’s not all just running about for our Bulldog stud. Sometimes a little bit of couch cuddling is in order. Thankfully, his bloodline is known for their patient and tolerant demeanor. 🙂
