When we were at the Indie Market at First Friday this month, we were smitten with this bulldog who was as sweet as can be. He was a heartthrob. We weren't the only people taking pictures of him. Bulldogs are known for their good dispositions. Althought they were formerly used for fighting in England, when dogfiting was outlawed, the dogs were bred to have a sweeter disposition. They are prone to hip dyslpasia and 80% of the puppies are delivered by C-section because their large heads can get lodged in the birth canal. However, when you see their sweet faces strolling the streets of Greensboro, the challenging aspects of the breed are quickly forgotten.
Well, it isn't First Friday for two more weeks; however, for music fan's, Pittsboro's Shakori Hills Festival is this weekend. Earth Day events will be going strong at Kathleen Clay library. For antique collectors, the Liberty Antique Festival is next Friday and Saturday and, for book lovers, Greensboro City Library is sponsoring Children's Day/El día de los niños on Sat. April 28th in Center City Park. The English bulldog gives all of these events a four paws up! Finally, the week after that (May 4th) will be the First Friday Indie Market at the corner of South Elm and MLK Drive. So much to do in the area! Time to map out the rest of your month and squirreling away pocket change.
