  • Argumentative Essay: Don T Bully My Breed

    I fancy myself an expert on the Bulldog family, I have personally owned 10 different types of bulldogs from boxer-pit mixes, full blooded Pit Bulls, and currently own an American Bulldog. Also I have studied the Argentine Bulldog, the Pit Bull terrier, and the now extinct Old English Bulldog extensively. The Old English Bulldog is the original prototype bulldog and not the ill-genetically concocted Modern English Bulldog, a cross of the original and a pug, rendering it a obese, wrinkly faced, and a genetic certainty that it will have breathing problems. The Pit Bull Terrier, originally called the Staffordshire Terrier, is a cross of the Staffordshire Terrier and the Old English Bulldog. The breed began to emerge as the prototype started to lose favor due to an outlawing of bullbaiting in cities. Bullbaiting is a canine game sport where participants, normally royalty, pay an entry fee to a bull owner who ties the bull or cow to a steak in the ground and the participant’s dogs compete for pieces of meat off of the live bull. This sounds gruesome, but the sport was not outlawed for animal cruelty, rather virus prevention reasons.

  • Alfred The Great Claim To Be King Essay

    In comparison, The Anglo Saxon Chronicle states that Edgar only met with six kings, and they “plighted their troth to him, that they would be his fellow workers” but did not row him down the River Dee.
