Some may know that owning a dog is just what my family does. We love animals. So throughout our time together, I have been working so hard to convince Chase to let me get a dog. We finally found a breed he likes--English bulldogs. He originally wanted to name it "King Tut" since that sounds really masculine and bulldogs look tough. But after visiting my parents at Thanksgiving my mom suggested a name we both really like, "Winston" in order to match it's English heritage. Yep, that's right, my brother Jeff and his wife Kari beat us to the punch!!! They bought the dog we both like and took the name we wanted. See this is the problem with being the youngest. We have slim pickings on names due to many nieces, nephews, and animals. Like for example, Chase loves the Russian name Mila (not sure on the spelling but it's pronounced Me-la). Those who are familiar with my family know that that name is out of the question when it comes to any future daughters we might have because we have both a Milo and a Myla in our family. Oh well.
Anyway, because of this rude awakening by Kari's recent purchase, Chase and I have been looking at bulldog more and more. But thanks to my friend Emily Russon, I was just introduced this week to the Mini Bulldog breed! It looks like an English bulldog just half the size (so around 25 lbs instead of 45-50 lbs) which is very appealing to me since I like smaller dogs (I grew up with miniature schnauzers, what do you expect?). Chase isn't sold on it yet so we thought we'd put it to a vote. Which would you prefer?
The Standard English Bulldog
