Gracie looking at a squirrel.
Bubba sitting down on my lap to get petted.
I had the good fortune of meeting these two delectably slobbery and beautiful creatures in the Commons not one but TWO days in a row. It must have been fate.
If you want to run into Bubba and his sister Gracie in the Boston Commons, just head out on a sunny day and prepare to be overwhelmed with joy. Both are old-breed English bulldogs (mix of English Mastiff, Bulldog, and a few other breeds as I remember).
I'd also like to note that as I was in the middle of asking if 90-pound Bubba believed himself to be a lapdog, he decidedly positioned all 90 pounds of himself in a grand heap on my lap. Photos ensued.
