A  STUMP  FOR  A  TAIL

You can't buy loyalty, they say, I bought it though, the other day;
You can't buy friendship, tried and true, Well just the same, I bought that too.
I made my bid, and on the spot, Bought love and faith and a whole job lot
Of happiness, so all in all, The purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single trusting heart, That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale,

Buy a brown-eyed puppy with a stump for a tail.

THERE'S ALWAYS ROOM FOR ONE MORE  

I see by his coat he must be a stray, The untidy look gives him away.
Heís lost his will and is so thin, Hasnít eaten since God knows when.
I know as I coax him through the door, Thereís always room for one more.

The other night in the freezing rain,  That little female came again.
Matted and soaked, crying in need, Lost and alone with babies to feed.
Her pleading eyes I couldnít ignore, Thereís always room for one more.

Thereís a new face on the docks today, Hungry but clean, to our dismay,
I stroked her head, her body rippled,  When she got up I saw she was crippled.
She started to go, but fell on the floor. Thereís always room for one more.

Thereís the poor doggy standing in the rain, Iíve tried to entice him time and again.
One ear is lopsided, the otherís been torn, Blind in one eye, lost and forlorn.
Heís coming now, so Iíll open the door. Thereís always room for one more.

These stories are true,  As Iíve said before,
Thereís always room for one more.

DOG (Spelled Backward)

When God had made the earth and sky, The flowers and the trees.
He then made all the animals, The fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished, Not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine, And give each one a name."
And so He traveled far and wide And everywhere He went,
A little creature followed Him Until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth And in the sky and sea,
The little creature said, "Dear Lord, There's not one left for me."
Kindly the Father said to him, "I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
And called you dog, my friend."

One More Dog...

One dog is not trouble, and two are so funny, the third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.

The fifth is 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 dogs on the sofa, and dogs on the bed, And crates in the kitchen, its no bother, you said.

They're really no trouble, their manners are great. What's just one more dog and one more little crate?

The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty. The floor is all footprints, the furniture's dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care? Who minds a few nose prints 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 dogs you can add. The thought of a cutback, sure makes you feel sad.

Each one is special, so useful, so funny, the food bill grows larger, you owe the vet money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay, Except other dog folks, who live the same way.

Your lawn has now died and the shrubs are dead, too. Your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's dog 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 comes up and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will, Keep all 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.

Winter is a hassle, but the dogs love it true, And they must have their walks tho' you are numb and blue.

The dogs and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills. The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.

The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life. They're charming and funny and offset the strife.

Your lifestyle has changed, things just won't be the same. Yes those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game!

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. 

He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." ~ Unknown~

 


RAINBOW BRIDGE

Virgil von Promised Land

1995 - 2009

"Virgil"  aka "the Bump"

Virg  Virgil

Virgil was the greatest Rottweiler...ever.

 He "raised" 3 generations of Jack Russells, (never realizing he was bigger than they were), was a well balanced protector, constant companion and friend.  His loyalty was without equal.  He lived a wonderful life, was loved by his family, and he loved his family in return.  His absence has left a void in our hearts, we will miss him immensely.  

It is dogs like Virgil that solidify that there is indeed a "Doggie Heaven"... and we know that's exactly where he waits.

 

Ivell vom Promised Land

 1996-2004

"Ivy"

Ivy was a beautiful girl, completely devoted to her family.  We rescued her from a bad situation, chained to a tree with little or no attention.  She was thin and scared when we scooped her up and put her in our truck, never knowing, nor caring, how she would respond after all she had endured, we just knew we had to get her out of there and love her.   Which we gladly did every day.  If a dog can exhibit gratitude, that is exactly what Ivy did, nearly the minute we got her home, the kisses never stopped.   Our "grillers" was a great girl!

 

 

RikkiTikkiTavi

2001 - 2010 "Rikki Boy"

 

 

Rikki Tikki Tavi has gone to earth for the last time...Rikki the valiant has passed over the Rainbow Bridge.  We will miss his antics and non-stop energy that mimicked his name.
