Congratulations on your well deserved DD!
These Bulldogs are so coordinated and intelligent though.. It's amazing to me that they can skateboard.. a lot of people can't even do it..
I bet the Golden Retriever couldn't skateboard.. probably jealous of the skateboard, and bothered by the noise.. they make great pets apparently (a good family dog), but not a terribly intelligent breed.. like bulldogs. Fascinating really. It's probably the bulldog's low center of gravity.. to do the Retriever justice, they are just too big and goofy to ever attempt skateboarding.. very loving though usually
There was one in my neighborhood when I was a kid that was a complete jerk though.. it roamed the neighborhood and would skrew with me when I walking home from the bus stop.. growling and stalking me.. Scared me, and I've never like the breed much. People seem to love them though.
mutt breeds sometimes are very intelligent and well rounded because they are hybrid in a way I think.. where as particular breeds have specific strong points
I have some feral cats that are probably pretty mixed, very bright animals
