The sloth

FHM (Philippines) - - VERGE -

As far as couch pota­toes go, very few ca­nines are as perect as the English Bull­dog. Sound asleep with a face full of folds ly­ing dead flat on the holding area floor, they’re ar­guably the most lethar­gic bunch present at the dog show.

Hid­den po­ten­tial: “They al­ways want to lay down and sleep, but they’re play­ful. They’re re­ally sweet,” says Bull­dog breeder and lover Charles Ar­boleda, adding that his prized mutts’ ex­er­cise rout­ing con­sists of an oc­ca­sional five to ten­minute walk.

Fun fact: Still, don’t mis­take the breed’s slug­gish­ness for an easy, or af­ford­able, own­er­ship ex­pe­ri­ence. Ar­boleda tells us Bull­dogs are high-main­te­nance, prone to heat strokes, and cost about P100,000 per pup. Lord Sey­mour, Ar­boleda’s cham­pion, cost him a whop­ping P1.2 mil­lion to bring home from Spain.
