Sensitive to your moods: Are delighted when your happy, and are still and compassionate when you grieve.
Bulldogs are known to display heroic acts of courage in protecting their master.
If you want an obedient dog that will jump at your every command...don't get a bulldog.
Some think their not listening mean they are not intelligent...in fact just the opposite is true, bulldogs tend to think and examine every command they are given before making a decision whether to follow or not.

'A bulldog does best in a loving environment, free from fear and neglect. He is happiest when there are people around. Left alone, a bulldog (like any other breed) can be destructive.'
Back in 1998 when Chris Williams was just 19, he was going through some tough times. With no direction, Chris got into trouble and ended up in prison for a year. It was when locked up that Chris discovered that there was something about him that others found attractive. It was also while in prison that the he acquired the nickname Meat Pistols. Determined to turn his life around, stay out of trouble and make a good living for his family, when Chris got out, he began dancing at one of the local clubs in New Orleans. Right off the bat, people gave him the name 'bulldog' because of his tattoo.
'At first I thought it was a silly name, then later realized how much of a challenge it was going to be to live up too. I always like a challenge.'
'The bulldog loves people and the attention people give him. As a rule, he is a good, quiet companion. He does not necessarily make the greatest watch dog for this reason, although his looks alone will tend to deter any potential intruder.'
'To me, the greatest attributes Bulldogs bring to the table are its courage and its amazing capacity to endure pain. The perfect Bulldog must be of medium size and smooth coat; with heavy, thickset, low-swung body, massive short-faced head, wide shoulders and sturdy limbs. The general appearance and attitude should suggest great stability, vigor and strength. The disposition should be equitable and kind, resolute and courageous (not vicious or aggressive), and demeanor should be pacific and dignified....The tat reminds me how much cowboy is in me every time I look in the mirror..'
'Exercise is important for a bulldog to build stamina and prevent obesity, but don't overdo it, particularly when it is hot or humid.'
As both a model and a dancer, Chris has made good living over the past decade with his body on exhibit. I am sure you will agree there is something organically sensual that comes through in his images. Maintaining his physique is a full time job and Chris has certainly learned how to achieve and maintain results. With all the questions and requests for help from others Chris is beginning bulldogtactics101. The site will be based on Exercise Physiology/ Kinesiology/ Nutrition and maintaining an optimal level of fitness. Chris is currently in the process of completing his American Council on Exercise certification. (ACE).
I love getting to know to know those I profile on FH and I loved getting to know Chris Williams. With refreshing honesty, Chris is open about his past, introspective and self aware about how it shaped him as a man. I greatly admire how he has turned his history, his circumstances, into goals, challenges and a direction for success.

Chris Williams about working with Hans Fahrmeyer.
It was through working on previous 'Sundays With Hans' posts that I discovered Hans work with Chris Williams. For those of you who know Hans work, it is unapologetically direct, erotic and sexual. I could tell right away there was something special about Chris and his shots were so hot, so unique I wanted to share them on FH. Thank you as always to Hans for sharing your work with FH!
