Like Toads That Have Been Sat On

Illustration from Punch, from the January 24, 1906 edition (page 67). 
Bulldogs are adorable, with faces like toads that have been sat on. My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind; So flew'd, so sanded; their heads are hung with ears that sweep away the morning dew... --  A MidSummer Night's Dream
