I have to declare a degree of bias here on the subject of French Bulldogs. "Bad Ass" Bobbins, one of our 10 dogs, is indeed a French Bulldog. Oh, and not just any French Bulldog, but the most beautiful to ever place four paws upon this planet.
If I had to force myself to offer some constructive criticism on French Bulldogs, their habit of passing wind or farting and then denying any responsibility could be considered a bit naughty.
- emit wind from the anus.
- waste time on silly or trivial things.
As you can see from that definition, we don't just use the word farting in relation to farts. We might also accuse someone of "farting around" doing something, meaning that they're wasting their time on something pointless that isn't going to produce any meaningful result.

Listen to the complete text from start to finish.
French Bulldogs are one the world's most popular small dog breeds. At most they usually measure up to 33 cm tall and can weigh up to a maximum of about 13 kg. Because their center of gravity is so far forward in their bodies, they are not able to swim. They can live for up to 12 years and they have a sensitive nature, meaning that when told off, they will often withdraw to sulk.
Now listen to the slower version and type what you hear into the text box.
