The English bulldog is not just a dog, it’s a bulldog. It’s not just a
passion, it’s a lifestyle choice. If you fall in love with one, you’re
done for: you can’t live without it. Never mind if it breaks all the
normal rules of canine behaviour, if it snores like a trombone, if it
can’t wash itself, if it hates the slightest change in its living
quarters, and if just looking at it makes you worry and think of taking
out an annual subscription to a veterinary surgery. This book is a
two-sided psychological identikit: on the one hand, of the ideal
companion for a bulldog; on the other, of a dog which carries with it a
high risk of emotional addiction, because of its almost magical powers
of empathy and its extraordinary madness. With quotes from literature
and elsewhere, and a preface by Oscar Grazioli.
Masterfully translated by Jonathan Hunt.
