Hi everybody – I am finally back with my regular blogging. Sorry I have been away for I while – hope you didn’t miss me too much?
Today I’d like you to meet English Bulldog Lilly
In the old days the dogs were bred to actually fight bulls, so they had smaller heads, more athletic bodies and a much more bloody-mined worldview. Bullbaiting* was banned in the 19th century, after some drastic selective breeding that did away with its violent nature and now the dog is known to be of generally good temperament.
The sport of baiting animals has occurred since antiquity, most famously in the Roman Colosseum, a direct precursor to the modern Spanish bullfighting. In the post Roman era, baiting, per se, was most closely associated with the English, who pursued it with utmost earnestness. The pastime flourished, reaching the peak of its popularity during the sixteenth century.

Lilly Is a 6 month old English Bulldog.
Over the last few years I have trained quite a few English bulldogs and Cute Lilly is one of the best. Very loving, good balanced temperament, obedient, playful, Lilly is loyal companion for her Dad. Lily’s friendly nature means she easily gets along well with other humans dogs and pets.
Scott, Lily’s owner, has done super job to raise, train, exercise and care for Lily. In my opinion Scott is the model of a responsible owner.

Little bit about bully breeds
Like all dogs, bulldogs require daily exercise. If not properly exercised it is possible for a bulldog to become overweight, which could lead to heart and lung problems, as well as joint issues.
The English Bulldog is at the top of the list, being affected by Hip Dysplasia.
Other problems can include Cherry eye, a protrusion of the inner eyelid (which can be corrected by a vet) and certain allergies they also suffer from such as respiratory problems
The folds on a Bulldogs face should be cleaned daily to avoid unwanted infections caused by moisture accumulation. Also, some bulldogs’ naturally curling tails can be so tight to the body as to require regular cleaning and a bit of ointment.
