Double Dog Day: Gordo and Capitan the English Bulldogs

These guys are bulldogs (aka English bulldogs), not to be confused with Old English bulldogs (aka Olde Englishe Bulldogges). Or, for that matter, bulgogi, even if it is both old and English.

A few more pictures, after the break.

Edit: Wow, that was horribly edited. Not sure if I did that myself, or if the WordPress software somehow mangled the post. In either case, it’s what happens when I queue a bunch of stuff up and then go off on a trip. Should be fixed now… I hope.

Bulldogs always look ridiculous to me, but when they're in a posture like the one in front they're especially goofy.

    Love your commentary on my bullies, Gordo and Capitan. Can you guess which is which?

    Hee. Well, I have a 50/50 chance, right? Is the fully deflated one Gordo?

  3. Lisa says:

    No Gords is the lighter one and Capi is the flat one!
