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So they just announced that Labs have been replaced by French Bulldogs as the most popular breed.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?

My friends daughter has a Frenchie, relatively good health so far at 5 years old and really sweet. Overtime a breed gets po polar though they end up overbred by BYB and overall health goes down. Most bulldogs have many health issues to begin with. I pet sit for two neighborhood bulldogs. Lovely friendly dogs, not overly active but everyday twice a day eye drops, nose blah, wrinkle creams, allergy meds (apolguel), arthritis meds. One is 9 years old, old per owner who is a long time bully owner and the other is 5. Neither can tolerate the heat here, so no walks and only briefly outdoors for potty, playtime is inside. Though the older really doesn't play much but the 5 year old will for about 15 min. Then they go to sleep. A good dog for an inactive person I would think who has plenty of money for vets.
