Did you know that Bull Terriers are an addiction? That’s why Alan Cross couldn’t just stick with one – he had to have two of these addicting dogs!

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to spend the day with music geek Alan Cross and his two Bull Terriers, Schmooze and Squirt. If you’re Canadian, you know Alan from his time on The Edge 102.1 (CNFY), his syndicated radio series The Ongoing History of New Music, and any of his alternative music tomes (my fave is The Alternative Music Almanac… Alan even signed my copy [*insert fangirl squee here]).

I learned a lot about Alan and his Bull Terriers that day. For example, Schmooze likes the taste of body lotion, and will lick your chest for five minutes straight to get it all off. She’ll also sit on your legs for the duration of an interview because she has no idea she’s not a lap dog.

Get ready to fall in love with the Bull Terrier breed (and Alan’s okay, too) – watch the video below!
