Two of the first and most famous skateboarding Bulldogs are Tyson and Tillman. Both Bulldogs have a glorious sporting career behind them. Tillman died recently but he will always be remembered by the Bulldog and Skate Community ♥. He was known around the world and even went on tour in his own Tour Bus.

The Bulldog has a sort of natural aptitude for skateboarding, they will not only stand on it and skate off but also do turns and tricks by moving their weight on the board, just like human skaters do. They are Natural Born Skaters!

A Quote from Brad Pitt:

“I’m a firm believer Bulldog owners are kindred spirits. Mostly because we can and will have very serious conversations about snorts, farts, shit consistency, crusty eyes, crusty noses, puke, and various forms of gas with other Bulldog owners.”

As said many people choose a fast and hectic life for an English Bulldog. Valentino Rossi is an excellent example. Valentino Rossi is an Italian motorcycle racer. He has 8 world titles and 103 Grand Prix victories to his name, making it one of the most successful motorcycle racers ever. Here an interview with Valentino Rossi on his love for the English Bulldog.

ASSEN – Valentino Rossi started at the Dutch TT from pole position, chasing his hundredth Grand Prix victory. The Italian world champion said in talked in our conversation about his love for English bulldogs. The master speaks.

Dogs or cats?
Dogs! Absolutamente. I love them. When I was young we had a cat at home, but I was more fund of dogs. They say that dogs are the best friends of man, huh. Well, that’s right I do. I have two English bulldogs. A boy and a girl, she called Cesare and Cecilia. I have a special relationship with them, sometimes I even talk to them. When I see them, they always make me very happy. Even in difficult times they have a very calming effect on me.

In 2000 I suddenly thought: f*ck, I need to have a dog. By that time I did not have a dog for over almost ten years. I’ve long looked for what kind of dog I would take. There was one that made my friends house into a mess and others were too large. Eventually it became an English bulldog. I drove to a breeder of these dogs and I bought a boy, that I named Guido. I had a special and intimate relationship with him. For the love I pasted a sticker on my bike from him, so he always was with me during the race.

I had Guido for over eight years, unfortunately he didn’t live long due to heart failure. Guido died last year, just before the race in Malaysia. I had a very hard time, but luckily I was home when he died. It would have been much heavier if I was not there, so I could give him one last salute.

I then went to Malaysia, where I raced home and drove directly to get a new puppy. I called the breeder and said I was coming.  He just had puppies. I looked and found a boy and named him Cesare. I also saw that he had a sister from the same litter. I thought, f*ck, this time I just take two. So I went home with Cesare and Cecilia. I’m glad I did because two dogs are better than one. They both love to have a friend to play with.

I’ve always loved bulldogs and Bennie is my third. I have another at home, Lola, but she’s 13 and needs her rest.

I love the bulldog character. They have a huge amount of spirit but they’re very soft and gentle, perfect family pets. When he comes into the office he puts a smile on everyone’s face no matter what their day’s been like, rain or shine he makes us feel happy 😀

Bulldog Hero

English Bulldogs are not known as good swimmers. Because of their heavy build and short legs they have to work extra hard to keep their heads above the water. Especially since Bulldogs are known as poor swimmers that is what makes the following extra special:

August 3, 2008 A bulldog owner from Michigan USA was walking his dog when his bulldog, Napoleon, suddenly yank hard and started to run to a nearby lake. The owner of Napoleon hurried after him and he saw Napoleon coming back from the water with something in his mouth. In his mouth he seemed to have a kind of cloth bag. Napoleon dragged the bag out of the water and  brought it to his boss. His owner suddenly heard  soft meows coming from the bag. It appeared that there were six kittens in the bag, two of them unfortunately did not survive but because of the heroic intervention of Napoleon four kittens were rescued and they all found good homes. Napoleon got several prizes for his heroic deed.

    The Georgia Mascot is being referred to as a SHE, but clearly in the photo, it is a boy, his penis tip is hanging out.

  2. RoseAnn Hulett says:

    Have a rescuse bulldog, Roxie and she is the sweetest dog in the world. We love her so much, she is so gentle with my 5 year old granddaughter, I do not worry that she would ever try and hurt her. Knowing this is wonderful.

  3. voigt51 steve says:

    I can see several people here IMO that do not deserve to have a Bullie. Paris Hilton,Chris Brown, Ice tea They only have their bullies for photo opps. and Don’t spend the time and give the love bullies need.

    • Baggy Bulldogs says:

      Ice T loves his dogs more than anything I have seen a special on him and his wife and they spend a lot of them with them, taking them everywhere they go so to me they seem to be perfect bully parents. For the others I dont know but since I know none of them personally I wont judge 😉

      • voigt51 steve says:

        As I said it was IMO.. I live out her in L A and see lots of stuff done when the cameras are rolling. Chris Brown the woman beater and Paris Hilton.. Paris will have whatever is popular next month.. awhile back she carried a Chihuahua as an accessory like a hand bag only to had the dog off to an assistant. Out here the celebrities jump on the band wagon. Stay tuned for the next one. As a bully owner you now how much love and attention they need…

  4. Don Beaver says:

    I love Brad Pitt’s comment about bulldog owners being kindred spirits(agree I am one), etc. As the owner of two previous 4-legged angels who await me in Dog Heaven and now I am planning for the third bulldog (might break the bank), they are proof positive there is a God; no misguided human being could have been this smart to create the best breed and best friend to man, in the whole world!

  5. Ryan P says:

    I love browsing this site. I am a owner of multiple English Bulldogs. I would love to know where Cesar Millan got Mr. President from. Would love to contact that breeder to purchase a puppy. Beautiful dog!

  6. Caroline Reed says:

    I’m the proud owner or should I say I’m proud to be owned by a Rescue Bulldog called Charlee girl over here in England, she is the most adorabull loving creature I have ever know, I wish I could post one of the 1000s of photo’s I have of her, she’s just my world, she’s also my 3rd Rescue Bulldog & this disabled woman can’t imagine life without a Bulldog by her side, they are the best dogs ever xxx
