New most popular breed

So they just announced that Labs have been replaced by French Bulldogs as the most popular breed. I was quite pleased that after this announcement our local news station did a story on why French Bulldogs should not exist as a breed. They listed the myriad health problems starting with the fact that they cannot breed without AI or give birth without C sections, and going on to the many issues that make a lot of these dog live a miserable life. French and American Bulldogs are already banned in some countries.

They can be very sweet and funny little dogs, but at what price?

Good for that news team to give the full facts.

I have read that the UK Kennel Club is now pushing for more functional facial structure on Frenchies and other brachiocephalic breeds and judges are supposed to mark down for flatness of face. I don't know if this is actually being implemented though.

The 20th C. did a number on the structure of many breeds if you go back and look at the original breed specimens vs. now.
