    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.




    RIP my sweet Sally

    The Bully Clock in the pic is something I made after being inspired by my bully, Bodie...
    Poem Title:
    ~My Inspiration~
    My Bulldog May be Stubborn,
    As Greedy As They Come,
    But He Puts A Smile Upon My Face
    When He Wiggles His Little Bum.
    Some Have Called Him Ugly,
    Even said He's not that Smart,
    But They Don't Know What I Do,
    Nor Do They Have A Heart.

    He's Stinky, Silly, Crazy,
    And Rotten In Every Way,
    But He Brings Me Joy, Love,
    And Laughter, Every Single Day.
    He Owns Every Part Of Me,
    From Top to Bottom and Middle,
    My Inspiration, My Bulldog,
    Ruffin "Bodie" Esau Little.
    ~The End~

    BISCUIT OUR TRISCUIT

    We have a bulldog named Biscuit
    For she has captured our hearts
    Her coat matches the color of a triscuit
    And she fills the room with her farts

    I've never met a dog so adoring
    Or one with more sass this is true
    Regular bones she finds rather boring
    Instead she prefers a good shoe

    She makes us giggle
    Her love for us is so true
    Her rolls have quite the jiggle
    She's a true bulldog through and through!

    An English Bullie with attitude
    not too much sign of gratitude
    You are the queen of this humble home
    If the gate's left open,I know you'd roam

    You do not realize that not all love
    When you see people,you can't contain
    the excitement you have,and it makes me sad
    when someone won't pet you and you feel bad
    and give that look "why Mom,why
    why won't they pet me,no matter how hard I try?"
    The love you have in your heart is not always understood,
    but I know why
    If people were dogs they would surely know
    that YOUR love of people-IS the way to go!



    "
    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    An Ode to THE BOYS

    Our boys are named Custer and Sherman
    So happy they’re often found squirmin’.
    They love food so much,
    when the cookie jar’s touched
    Their tail wags speed up, that’s confirmin’!

    Now Sherman is calm and quite stoic
    When protecting his Mom, quite heroic,
    But Custer’s an imp,
    although never a wimp,
    and his kisses are often prolific.

    Sherman’s the big water hater
    No other dog’s hate can be greater
    When bath time rolls round
    And he’s nowhere to be found
    We must use our bulldog locator!

    Custer loves balls quite a bit
    and humps them in amorous fit.
    He chases the cat
    And is sometimes a brat
    But stops when you tell him to “cool it.”

    Lucky we feel every day
    And so without further delay
    We will say ever more
    That despite all the snores
    Life should be no other way.

    A Part of Me....
    A part of me died today
    When I heard the news
    That you quietly slipped away
    A part of my soul I did lose
    A part of me cried today
    A long dreaded reality came true
    That there would be the day
    The I would not have you
     
    A part of me sighed today
    in the reality that you were gone
    there would be no more games to play
    or a hug in the morning dawn
     
    A part of me survived today
    My friend you were the best
    to see you again I do pray
    just to have you we were blessed
     
    A part of me smiled today
    remembering the time that we had
    your gentle soul and amazing smile
    makes my heart feel glad.
     
    My heart felt proud today
    Remembering all that you did
    From bring joy to those in need
    and giving reading support to a kid.
     
    My heart wept with joy today
    Your memory will always grow
    I’ll meet you up in heaven someday
    On the other side of the rainbow....

    Mr. Sarge
    Once upon a time, we were a family of three…
    Mom, Dad & Dutchie, happy as can be.
    Then we caught word of a bully looking for a home,
    Well we should take him in, it will surely be fun!
    Into our life, Sargent did bounce,
    he peed on our floor…and pooped in our house.
    We showed him where we walked, and where the cookies were stored
    He started to get comfortable, we could tell from the snores.
    Now here he is, lying on the couch,
    well until mom starts the vacuum, then he turns into a real grouch.
    We hadn’t planned on expanding, our little family of three,
    but now we don’t remember how it used to be.
    Sargent was a blessing; we’ve known it since day one
    He’s a little bit high maintenance but it’s so worth it for the fun!
    He can eat all his dinner, in 30 seconds flat
    He loves wearing sunglasses & his Toronto Blue Jay’s hat
    He snorts and he drools, all over the place
    But there’s nothing we wouldn’t do for that snorty, drooly face.
    Now here we are, a happy family of four,
    Life hasn’t been the same since Sargey walked in the door.

    "Just a bulldog". (Tater's life)-image-jpeg

    Lying in the desert sun,
    Reflecting on my life.
    Of all the things I've done and seen,
    I know I got it right.

    I see a young pup playing,
    In the Northern grass.
    At that age how would I know,
    That youth sure doesn't last?

    My teenage years were pretty fun,
    That's where I learned my place.
    Going to work and learning a trade,
    And the pride on Daddy's face.

    Working at the jobsite,
    And lunchtime with the guys,
    That's when I knew,
    The awesome of alive!

    Roofing, framing, eating tape,
    After being told to stay.
    Chasing that ol' compressor hose,
    Thinking, "I'll get you one day!"

    Taking a friend to the beach,
    When he was feeling blue.
    Pretty girl comes up to us,
    I say, "Sorry Victor, I gotta poo!"

    I'm getting older now
    And have responsibilities.
    My boy will be home from school soon,
    Then we can play frisbee.

    The baby girl sure does love me,
    She rides me like a horse.
    They mean the world to me,
    I'd give my life of coarse.

    The time is flying by now,
    I'm retiring to the south.
    To a little desert ghost town,
    No more humidity in my mouth.

    A burden I've come to be,
    This so much I know.
    Although my family tells me,
    That it isn't so.

    My eyes have grown dark,
    It's hard for me to see.
    Still my family tells me,
    That they will never leave me.

    It takes a dog a lifetime,
    To find his way home.
    My family did the best for me,
    That I have ever known.

    So when it's time for me to go,
    And walk into that fog.
    I'll have no regrets only loving memories,
    Being "just a bulldog".

    For Tater....
    Karen Allen

    One Piece

    My dog, Tonka, has a sturdy build.

    His muscles ripple when he runs.

    His fur is coarse,but healthy.

    His teeth, with the exception of one, are albescent.

    His eyes are chocolate brown

    Full of expression and understanding –

    Sometimes happy,

    Sometimes full of disgust

    But

    Always full of love.

    His button nose makes one laugh because of its shape-

    Angled in toward his head

    Black and flattened with two little slits for air holes.

    His tail resembles a cinnamon bun-

    Corkscrewed and swirly,

    Not blackened and burned,

    But

    Brown and perfectly done.

    His ears are soft and brown with a straight little scar running down the left one.

    His snores can interrupt the deepest of sleeps.

    Tonka, One Piece of our family that keeps us smiling!

    Silly Bulldog!
