My husband and I have had bulldogs of some sort for 20 years or longer. We started out with a pitbull mixed with lab named Buster who lived to be 19. Then we had Rockzie who was pitbull and ambull who lived to be 13 and now we have had Rudy and Rachel since they were three months old. After having 4 bulldogs and reading quite a bit about the breed(s) and I am still learning more each day. We have no two legged children and the four legged ones are as much as I can handle on a full time basis.
