Way back in September I published See In The Window, Magilla Gorilla, a post about Doggles. I ♥L-O-V-E♥♡♥ ♥♡♥L-O-V-E♥♡♥ ♥♡♥L-O-V-E♥♡♥ my doggles! I wear mine just about every day. A lot of my furriends in the #BullDogNATION love them, too!  Wait. What’s #BullDogNATION?

#BullDogNATION is a community of literate dogs with distinct voices. Voice is a unique quality of  writing That speaks directly to us, the Audience. It is the heart and soul, the magic, the wit, the feeling, the life and breath of writing. One of the Six Traits in writing, it is that individual something called Voice.

#BullDogNATION started out as a hashtag I created on Twitter. I wanted to gather together literate bulldogs for bulldog conversation. I wanted a place where I could listen to dogs who enjoy talking about People who enjoy talking about their dogs. And I wanted another resource for reading to direct the children I work with towards because my kids ♥L-O-V-E♥ talking dogs!

#BullDogNATION is where we joke, we laugh; and we share grooming, healthcare, product information and useful tips but mostly we just talk and laugh about our shared experiences with our People.  It’s about fun. It’s about conversation.  It’s about community.  And responsible pet ownership.

n.  A common spirit of comradeship, enthusiasm, and devotion to a cause among the members of a group

#BullDogNATION is about esprit de corps*. We are not selling anything or driving traffic toward an e-commerce website or business. We’re not constantly trying to win beauty contests or iPads.

We’re not passionate pushers of political or social agendas or relentlessly tugging at heartstrings with sad tales of animal woe or begging for donations in support of this one or that other animal shelter, non-profit or charity. We are not about showcasing animal abuses, promoting animal shelters or rescues or arguing the merits or lack thereof of shelter adoptions vs breeder purchase. We are not on a mission to change hearts or minds.

What we are all about is sharing the joy, the pain and laughter of loving and living with bulldogs. All we wanna do is have some fun! With bulldogs! Including, rather than excluding, when it comes to all things bulldog, our motto is: Cogitation, NOT discrimination. We’re thinkers– not stinkers.

And so here now, celebrating responsible pet ownership and the love of dogs how ever they come, is the first ever #BullDogNATION Photo Gallery. The theme: Dogs In Doggles (DID). Enjoy! And drop in on the fun at #BullDogNATION.
