Big 4

Last year Brooklyns birthday was big, expensive, heaps of guests, lots of gifts, etc. So this year i plan on having the opposite, in line with my new simple life philosophy. I plan on letting her have whatever cake she wants but there will be minimal guests and decorations. Gluten free food for nan, sneaky vegan food hee hee, alternatives to loot bags and gifts, handmade invites or texts, etc.

Bred to keep royals laps and feet warm and catch small birds and fleas. 1600 england. Animal planet says theyre shy to other dogs and friendly to people but Cloe is the opposite, hard to train apparently but ive found her fairly easy. Lifespan 9-14, cloe is 11 in September and on the highest heart failure level. In honor of the "cavalier king."

1200s england. Lifespan 8-10, sam turns 7 in October. 
Like the pit bull, bulldogs were originally bred to help butchers control livestock, although bulldogs most likely predate pit bills, with a history that can possibly be traced back to the 5th century in England and a breed called the Alaunt. By the 15th century, in addition to catching horses, cattle, and boars in legitimate (if dangerous) farming use, bulldogs were also used in the barbaric “sport” called bull-baiting, in which trained dogs would latch onto a tethered bull’s nose and not let go until the dog had pulled the bull to the ground or the bull had killed the dog. Over the course of 350 years, until bull-baiting was banned in 1835, bulldogs were bred for aggression, and an 80-pound dog could easily bring down a bull weighing close to a ton by corkscrewing its own body around its neck, tossing the bull over its own center of gravity.
Once bull baiting was outlawed in the UK, it would seem that there would be no further need for the breed, and they probably would be extinct now were it not for their exportation to the United States and Germany. In the US, bulldogs continued to work at herding hogs and cattle, particularly in parts of the South where the terrain was too rough to allow for fences.
