"Sir Bucksnort has been on TV a few times and is a highlight of many parades, etc. in Oklahoma. He loves McDonalds cheeseburgers and fries followed by a trip to DQ for a puppy cup from his fans who work there."
"Bucksnort has his own new black Dodge Caravan which he rides in to visit the folks at the Grand Lake Villa nursing home each day. When my son was there (due to Huntington's Disease) Snort would get on a chair next to Derek's bed and make faces at him and lick his face. I would choke up at that but my son would laugh."
The game is normally played by children and offers an interesting means of letting off energy and involves rugged physical contact. It appeals to competitive spirits but at the same time produces ad-hoc team activity with all the "losers" endeavouring to bring the "non-losers" to the ground. The strongest, most athletic competitors will find it extremely difficult to win British bulldog as the number of bulldogs grows. Parents tend to deplore the game since it results in muddied and even torn clothes, bruises, bloody noses, knees and elbows and sometimes tears (when played on tarmac ) but both boys and girls participate in it.
A .44 calibre Belgian-made British Bulldog revolver was used to assassinate . President James A. Garfield on 2 July 1881 by disgruntled lawyer Charles J. Guiteau , who was angry that Garfield had not appointed him to a federal post. Guiteau reportedly wanted a British Bulldog revolver with ivory grips instead of wooden ones, as he believed they would look nicer when the gun was displayed in a museum,  but decided not to spend the extra USD $1 that the ivory-gripped model would have cost.  In all, he paid $10 for the revolver, a box of cartridges and a penknife,  before spending the next day familiarising himself with the revolver's operation and firing 10 practice shots with it into trees along the banks of the Potomac River .  He used the revolver to shoot Garfield a week or so later in the Sixth Street Railway Station in Washington, . After Guiteau's trial, the revolver was placed in the Smithsonian Institution but disappeared some time later.
