Tuesday, April 21st marked National Bulldogs are Beautiful Day 2015. Jackie Valent created Bulldogs are Beautiful Day on April 18, 2007. “I hope that ‘National Bulldogs are Beautiful Day’ teaches us to embrace differences in people. If people see beyond the looks and aggressive ancestry of a bulldog, they can certainly look within and challenge themselves to accept their neighbors of a different race, gender, appearance, lifestyle, physical ability, national origin or religion” said Jackie. She is the owner of a bulldog named Stinky, which she also wrote a children’s book about…Stinky the Bulldog.
