I’ve always had a soft spot for English Bulldogs, and Bowie is no exception! If you can’t resist big heads and under bites, you’re going to love these photos by Valerie & Co. Photographers.
We all know people that are super dedicated to their favorite sports team. Babies are born and instantly are dubbed fans of their parents’ favorite teams (and often before they are born!) Well, sometimes it happens to dogs too. And I’m pretty sure that Bowie the English Bulldog wouldn’t want it any other way!
From Valerie: “For Bowie’s family, the best part of their home is probably the fact that they’re only six short miles from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.
Bowie and his family happily spend a lot of their time at the school located in the historic city of Charleston. They are crazy for the famed military college and the Citadel Bulldogs! Vicki is the head cheerleading coach there and loves it. Her husband Paul is a Citadel graduate and a former football player for the collegiate team.
Bowie has participated in a lot of The Citadel’s fun events. Most recently. he won first runner-up in the “Most Beautiful Bulldog” contest, and at the school’s 2015 “Best Citadel Costume” contest, Bowie won first place while sporting a pup sized outfit of the alma matter’s traditional military dress gray uniform. He’s an honest cadet! The family is so proud of everything about their good boy, Bowie.
Bowie is happy and very proud to be just like The Citadel’s mascot, Spike, and faithfully represent The Citadel’s motto: Duty, Honor, Respect! Bowie’s heart is full for his household’s team. He’s a first class pooch, and his family couldn’t ask for more. The boisterous bully-breed dog is a good protector and likes the thrill of chasing after trespassing lizards and squirrels.
In addition to the fun of running around outdoors and keeping everybody safe, Bowie and his family enjoy playing a game of fetch with their Citadel football toy and enjoy their peaceful moments spent nuzzling up together. The deep devotion and grand passion Bowie and his family show are a fine treasure to be honored with receiving.
For The Military College of South Carolina, they’re more than fortunate to have the honor of the true-blue, or in this case, Citadel Blue, loyalty and the strong love of this family, and, that of their wonderful four legged family member, Bowie, the bulldog.”

I love English Bulldogs, however, I have to mention that as a breed they are susceptible to a lot of health problems. If you are looking to add an English Bulldog to your life, please consider adopting one.

What a face! He has such a nice smile, who could resist him? I particularly love the photograph of him solo, angled from above.

We see Bulldogs all the time in the SEC because so many of our institutions have a bulldog as a mascot. Love the photos.

OMG, Bowie is an absolute doll! I pinned my favorite photo of him to my Adorable pet board. He’s super cute in his little Citadel shirt.
