Up until now, Chris’ Bulldogs have emphasized an edge of some manner. Most of his interpretations we have offered have been his whimsical, signature Chubby (keep it clean, this is a family channel), followed by fairly conventional iterations which featured crisp, razor like bevels. While, personally, I have enjoyed Chris’ novel play with the shape, I am totally loving the interpretation that is now on your monitor. Askwith flattens the bowl a bit, taking several steps towards a saucer, but does so in a restrained manner that allows this bull-pup to exhibit the best features from each side of the aesthetic spectrum. I think that Chris has a real winner here, and hope to see it more often.
