32 – Why Are You a Boston Terrier?

This week on “Why Are You A Dog?” we talk about the Boston Terrier. AKA Boston Bull Terrier, AKA American Gentleman dog, AKA Wicked Pissa. They are one of the few uniquely North American dogs, and although they started out as fighting dog, they’re actually very calm and super friendly. Most surprising thing about these guys? Not actually a terrier.

Now if you’re familiar with the show Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and saw the dog “Iggy”, you’ve probably seen one of these dogs. Depending on your humor, you may or may not like that the dog farts a lot. It’s a stupid comedic relief thing, right? Nope, Bostons are actually well known for their gassiness. If a website is going to talk about this dog, they make sure to let you know about their fart power within the first paragraph. Some even put it in their headline. We are at least breaking the mold, and waited until the second paragraph to talk about their flatulence.

Caitlyn talks about how ghosts are only a problem only in very specific ways, and Kyle tries to coin a new description for dog coats as “glazed”. He also tries to make a really poor penguin comparison. The song for this week is “For Boston” by The Dropkick Murpheys.
