When Winston Churchill was chastised by MP Bessie Braddock for being drunk, his historic response was , 'Yes, Madam, I am drunk but you are ugly. But in the morning I shall be sober and you will still be ugly.' The same can surely be said for the poor old Bulldog.....not drunk but guaranteed to be ugly in the morning ! So why then has this iconic dog, once used for bull baiting and dog fighting become one of the most loved breeds and a most treasured family pet ? In truth, he's just a big softie, a lover not a fighter. He's gentle, patient and even likes children! His comical appearance simply adds to his attraction and once bitten by the 'bulldog bug' owners tend to be committed for life to the breed. So for those owners, or those who just love the Bulldog anyway, this beautiful quality mug is the perfect gift. Leslie Gerry has created a splendid image of the Bulldog in all his glory, set against a vibrant backdrop of fern and mantis greens. The mug is made from fine bone china, is dishwasher and microwave safe and guaranteed to bring a smile to any face....no matter how ugly.
