Doggie Day - Our Reggie

This is our Reggie, or to be correct our daughters Reggie, and he is a pedigree English Bulldog, who is now eight years old. Caroline used to have two, the older one was called Lenny and was Reggie’s uncle, sadly Lenny died suddenly two or three years ago. People seem to either love or loath bulldogs, all I can say is that both of Caroline’s dogs have been the most passive and lovable dogs one could want, and a joy to be in the company of.

He likes the ball I see. What a muscular fellow.
Brian Walbey: These dogs were bred to have very muscular shoulders, and all you can see isn't fat but solid muscle, and he is a lovely dog.

Great shot, Brian.

I have not seen a British Bulldog in Thailand.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. It is always good to see these about in the street over here, not the most popular of breeds because they don't look cuddly I suppose.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie.

Sorry, not my dog - but a fine image!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, there are not the most popular of breeds because they don't look 'cuddly' I suppose, but this little guy, and his late Uncle Lenny, are/were both very cuddly once you get used to them.

It's all down to temperament isn't it Brian, I am sure Reggie is a delight
Brian Walbey: He is a real delight Chris, as was his late Uncle Lenny, he is spoilt worse than a child would be by my daughter.
I love bulldogs Brian. Superb portrait!
Brian Walbey: When Caroline bought her first one we thought, oh no, the're not very attractive, but in fact they are lovely dogs, and to be honest a bit lazy as well.

His fielding skills suggest that he should play for England.
Brian Walbey: Caroline has spoilt him quite a bit but has cut back lately on the not so good things she's been feeding him.
They are beautiful dogs but I fear the breeding has caused a lot of problems for them health wise. Reggie looks a grand fellow
Brian Walbey: He is a grand fellow, as was his Uncle Lenny (see the link), their main problem of course seems to be with their breathing them having those 'squashed' noses. They seem to very good with children, Reggie is often with our SIL's.daughter and I've never been aware of any problems.
A stocky litle fellow isn't he. Great capture of him with his ball Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, they are meant to be stocky like this, and that is all muscle, no fat at all.
i do not think i have ever seen a dog that broad shouldered, Brian. i think given some time (for me), Reggie and I would get along well grin
Brian Walbey: They were bred to deal with Bulls and needed powerful necks and shoulders Ayush. I'm sure you would like him, he is very gentle as was his late Uncle Lenny (see the link).
I absolutely LOVE British bulldogs and would choose one if I were to get a dog.
Brian Walbey: Many years ago when Caroline and her then partner said they were getting a bulldog we thought it was a strange choice but both Reggie and his late Uncle Lenny (see the link) have been delightful dogs. She still shares him with her ex partner, they have him so many days each, which seems quite an equitable arrangement to us.

The English Bulldog; a fine symbol of our Empire and our spirit. I don't think he will be much good as a ball boy.
Brian Walbey: Caroline's two bulldogs have been/are lovely animals to be honest, we hope Reggie has a good few more years with us as yet.
I think they're adorable, Brian! He looks in very good shape. And this is a great shot of him!
Brian Walbey: He is a lovely dog Elizabeth, and in good shape for his age. Sadly their life span is about 7 - 10 years but he is very well looked after so hopefully he will be around for quite a while yet.
