Cute Overload :D
It’s simple really. Until all my demands are met, I keep slobbering.
I’m fully prepared to speed things up.
Throw Costello a bone! Andrew H. says Costello “is a 6 month old (yes 6), Old English Bulldog puppy.”
The freckles on the ear flaps are his most convincing argument! :mrgreen:
I was definitely going to say something about nomming those freckled ears!
We of the Freckled Tribe know to use our powers only for good. :)
as in Abbott and? or Elvis?
I’m crossing my fingers that it’s for Elvis. I’m a long time EC fan.
Costello is gorgeous, regardless of his name sake!
I’m voting for Elvis too. Not just because I love his music and think he’s a cool dude, but because I actually got to meet him once not that long ago. Although we call him “Mr. Diana Krall”. ;-)
I know a guy who is an Elvis Presley impersonator… one day he asked me which my “favorite Elvis” was… without missing a beat, I said “Costello!”
So young and yet already so … disappointed. Give poor Costello a biscuit!
Don’t be fooled! If you give in the slobbering just changes into legally distinct drooling. If you try to reference the signed agreement you will just get a baroo, it gets snorfed, then eaten.
Speaking from experience, are you?
We shall fight them on the couches
We shall fight them under the bedclothes
We shall never surrender (unless they go for our soft underbellehs; we loooooove when they do that).
Not the same breed as the Churchill-esqe Bulldog. This breed is taller, and their faces aren’t so schmooshed. (My brother’s family just got one. I was very confused at first when they told me it was a bulldog … but it’s all clearer now.)
Winston Churchill was & is all I can think of when I look at this photo (even though evidently this is a different breed of Churchill-dog).
The diapproval of a lack of dog biscuits is quite evident.
THe freckled ears are too too adorable for words.
Disapproval. (Hangs head in typing error shame)
Flap frecks should be a new rule of cuteness, as well as nose frecks! Well….they are cute!
He is a most imposing figure.
also cute although I wouldn’t say so, in HIS hearing.
[wearing habit and fake tonsure] “I hate that guy!”
Very good ‘Men in Tights” reference, Victoreia. Love that movie almost as much as Princess Bride and any Monty Python except Holy Grail, which has to be my all time favorite.
“These are my principles. If you don’t like them, i have others.” *Groucho eyebrow wiggle*
is someone saving postage on a CO writer application?
I’m so perplexed. That is unlike so any other English Bulldog I have seen, especially a puppy. When I saw it I thought it was the adult mix of an English and American Bulldog.
Oh,the epic homeliness of this pup.
Oh Costello, you are something to behold, gorgeous one.
I’m a baaaad booooy!!!!!!
With bulldoggies, it’s not the slobbering you have to worry about, it’s the, um, erm, well, they can be a little gassy.
I think it’s the fried eggs and Brussels sprouts.
I have two OEBs. Their faces only get droopier, puppy-dog eyes bigger, and their countenance sadder with age. By the time they’re full-grown, merely eating a sandwich in front of them will result in a saucer-eyed “they never feed me and they beat me with reeds” face.
Until they flip belly-up on the couch. Then their gravity-affected jowls make them look like they had the Joker serum from Batman.
I’ve owned 5 dogs and never had one as affectionate as my OEBs. Prepare for years of clumsy, slobber-slimed snuggles, Andrew, and may Gawd have mercy on your soul.
*ahem* That dog kind of reminds me of . . . well . . . Geoffrey Rush. I ADORE Geoffrey Rush!
Your mission if you choose to accept it,……..all the information you need is in the envelope……try not to drool it shut !
Costello is my puppy and he most definitely was named after *Elvis* Costello.
P.S. He doesn’t slobber, but he does drool rivers if he smells cooking.
And per question above: Old English Bulldogs are mutt’d English Bulldogs. They are generally taller and healthier respiratory pathways than pure EB’s. But they are just as stubborn- so be prepared to stand strong (or negotiate) with them. Costello is part bulldog, part piggy and part jersey cow.
and he drools rivers? did you lose a bet?
