When we brought home a bulldog, I knew what to expect in the motivation department: lazy. What has come as a surprise is Thurman’s ability to seem completely comfortable, even fall asleep, in the most awkward positions imaginable. It’s as if he does it on purpose. I grew up with golden retrievers. They were always looking to stretch out. Thurman seems to seek the opposite. None of these photos are staged.
As a pup, he always put his crate to good use.
