    Just wrote this last week about Sally. It's my first poem ever.




    USED

    Used for breeding, you produced.

    Year after year you produced,
    until you could produce no more.

    Left to wonder I did, all those years you were used,
    used for breeding, how many did you produce?

    Used for breeding, you produced.

    Were you touched? Were you loved?

    Touched you were, and loved you were,
    by all those many babies you produced.

    Used for breeding, you produced.

    Left at the shelter you were…..why oh why,
    because you got old and could not produce.

    Left to a life unknown, a life with no touch, a life of no love,
    from the only life you once knew, a life that produced.

    Used for breeding, you produced.
    Where did you come from I asked myself?

    It didn’t matter really, because now you could no longer produce.

    One sunny day in May, I scooped you up,
    to a life now filled with endless touch and love!

    Why did you come to us I asked myself?
    Why? Because you were used for breeding and could not produce.

    No longer needed to produce,
    you were left to a life of uncertainty.

    You produced and you were used, but now,
    YOU are needed, YOU are touched and YOU are loved - for life!

    And no longer are you used for breeding to produce.

    WILSON THE ADORABULL


    My loyal companion, my little furry friend
    From early morning till nights end


    Excited to see me, he shows off his strut
    He waddles all over and wiggles his butt


    His smushed in face only a mother could love
    But Wilsons really a fur angel sent from above


    The snoring, the grunting, and all of the drool
    I wouldn't change any of it, I would be a fool


    The protruding jaw and teeth that bring fear
    When in reality, he's like a mini teddy bear


    Those big brown eyes that captured my heart
    And then there's always the continuous fart


    It's what makes him him, It's what I love most
    For this he deserves a bulldog toast


    Cheers to you my wrinkly four legged friend
    May this relationship never end


    I will love you and that face everyday of your life
    Even when you're just causing me strife


    I will watch you grow and see you shine
    And look at you proudly for you are mine


    For this I am grateful, I'm forever yours
    My heart will always hold your paws

    My Magical Bully Tour....


    How do I put into words what that Bully of mine means?
    Is it his eyes...that face.. his kissing spot? That huge heart of gold?
    Does he even know how his life with us has found its way..
    Or that he is leading us through a magical Bully tour.
    The road has passed so many milestones
    Where did two years go, I wonder in total disbelief.
    I remember vaguely, the 2 am potty breaks..
    That tiny bundle of goof..you know the goof of which I speak.
    The goof that twists its tentacles firmly around your heart.
    The heart that is afraid ohhh so afraid to breathe.
    After all, how can you love him... this much?
    You barely remember, the chewed up parts of your life.
    You know...when my rugs all had corners.
    Those books, cat scratchers and ohhh ya..pillow shams
    It wasn't his fault, after all, who left them in their proper places?
    The bags of bark and don't forget the middle of night barfs!
    Sleep is soooo overrated and extra money? Who cares..!
    Who decided THIS family needed THAT Bully?
    Jake was sent here on a mission..of this I am certain.
    To ease our load in a year of heartbreak. To force a smile every day.
    He has loved me through and through and back again.
    He knows how to lick my tears and he's a wonderful listener.
    He was responsible for my grandson's first sentence.."No Jake Nooo"
    Jake never, ever tells my secrets..nope, not even one.
    I will treasure him forever and a day.
    I am sure THIS magical Bully tour has barely just begun...
    Most of all, you see, I KNOW Jake IS Great...

    Aubie Shuga-Booga

    Beans, beans,
    she's good for your heart…
    She snorts and farts
    and makes window nose-art.
    She hops and leaps
    and never silently sleeps.

    Shuga, shuga,
    It's the best part of the day
    when big bully kisses slob my way.
    The face, the foot, the couch, the bed
    her bully appetite is never fully fed.

    Silly goose, silly goose,
    bumping, smacking, and tossing her prey,
    Toys beware!
    Aubie Shug's ready to play!
    A bark, a paw, a growl, a wiggle,
    Throw it mom! Work, don't giggle!

    Aubie, Aubie,
    my sweet, shuga-booga,
    my beansy beans,
    my silly goose -
    Life without you would be worse than bully toots!
    You melt my wallet, my stress, my heart-
    I love you to pieces, sweetheart!

    That Day

    I close my eyes
    As I remember that day
    So much has happened
    So much left to say.

    I thought I was helping
    When I answered that call
    Never truly expecting
    How hard I would fall.

    The moment I saw you
    My heart skipped a beat
    "You're Gorgeous! Sweet Boy!
    Wow! Look at your feet!"

    Your eyes - so soulful
    Your heart so pure
    You are full of love
    This one thing I'm sure.

    You mean no harm
    You are just misunderstood
    Never having a home,
    on the brink of boyhood.

    You're skittish, you won't eat
    You're a scared little boy
    You perk up! You light up!
    Ah....
    "Is this a treasured toy?"

    "A laser? You want this?
    Can you give me a kiss?"
    Excitement! So Joyous!
    You're in heavenly bliss!

    You jump and you play
    Like the puppy you are.
    Never once was I afraid
    that you would leave me a scar.

    With your olive nose
    And your alluring green eyes.
    The day finally came
    When we said our goodbyes.

    Your look - Sweet Aldo
    That you gave me that day,
    It haunts me. It kills me.
    I didn't mean to betray!

    It was a home! Your home!
    I had not a clue.
    I wouldn't have sent you
    If only I knew!

    I drop to my knees
    With tears in my eyes.
    I beg your forgiveness
    For these half truths and half lies.

    There are stories and more stories
    Of what happened that day.
    Half truths and untruths
    With a single soul left to pay.

    So precious. So stunning.
    15 months and a day
    When God called you up
    Heaven's beautiful stairway.


    RIP sweet baby boy
    Sept 1st 2011 ~ Dec 2nd 2012

    @JAKEISGREAT just sent me a wonderful idea!

    We will allow entries outside of the USA and Canada, and if they win we will have the Fromm sent to an English Bulldog Rescue of their choice here in the USA.

    I sit and stare at the box
    and scream why why why
    The tearswon't stop
    and all I do is cry

    I sit and stare at the box
    heart filled with love
    Wondering and dreaming
    that your watching from above

    I sit and stare at the box
    remembering you always by
    my side
    Oh the smiles you brought
    to others
    Fills this mommy with pride

    I sit and stare at the box
    I can feel you kiss
    my tears
    Then I listen closely........
    "Mommy, Steve here....."
