    Default Poem: Bet You Can't Own Just One!

    Warning!!! Get ready to ...... smile!


    BET YOU CAN'T OWN JUST ONE!

    Author unknown

    Why own an english bulldog? There's a danger you know,
    You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
    There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger.
    While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.

    One bully is no trouble, and two are so funny.
    The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.
    The fifth one delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,
    You find you can live with a houseful with ease.

    So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
    They're really quite easy but oh, Lord the hair!
    With bullies on the sofa and bullies on the bed,
    And crates in the kitchen, it's no bother you've said.

    They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
    What's just one more bulldog and just one more crate?
    The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty,
    The floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty.

    The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
    Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
    So let's keep a puppy, you can always find room,
    And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

    There's hardly a limit to the bullies you can add,
    The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.
    Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.
    The vet, the food bill grows larger, you owe money.

    Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
    Except other bully folks, who all live the same way.
    Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too,
    But your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

    There's bulldog food and vitamins, training and shots.
    And entries and travel and motels which cost lots.
    Is it worth it, you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
    Then that favorite bully comes and climbs in your lap.

    His look says you're special and you know that you will
    Keep all of the critters in spite of the bill.
    Some just for showing and some just to breed.
    And some just for loving, they all fill a need.

    But winter's a hassle, the bullies hate it too.
    But they must have their walks though they're numb and you're blue.
    Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
    At the bullies on the sofa who refuse to go out.

    The bullies and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills,
    The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
    The whole thing seems worth it, your bulldogs are your life.
    They're charming and funny and offset the strife.

    Your life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.
    Yes, those english bulldogs are addictive and so is the dog game!!

    Wonder if this is actually a fortune telling poem. Is this my future.....I hope so!
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    This is great! @cali~jenn...my dad is a dog person, but he still thinks I'm nuts! He shakes his head everytime I wipe Tubs' face or butt! He is more of a "working" dog person (i.e. labs for hunting!). When we ask my parent's to keep an eye on him for any period of time, my dad says "I'm not wiping his butt!" LOL
