    cheers gals,

    heres another i like

    American Pit Bull Terriers

    Their love is like no other; their heart is pure as gold.
    Yet while going on a friendly walk, they're faced with stares of cold.
    They're so very close to human, in how they act and what they do.
    Unless you've known their devoted love, it's impossible to explain to you.
    They are greatly more MISUNDERSTOOD than any other breed.
    We tend to punish this loyal dog, instead of mankind's deeds.
    They are always and forever clowns, with a wish for center stage.
    Yet while displaying this sense of humor, most people disengage.
    They, oh, so want to make new friends, and run and jump and play.
    yet when they happily approach, most people shy away.
    Often I've seen children poke, or hop on for a ride.
    And when I felt they might get mad, they've only beamed with pride.
    I've seen these children yank and pull, with nary a reaction.
    Yet media's not interested, unless they've put someone in traction.
    They love to snuggle up real close, to give lots of loves and kisses.
    Yet they suffer more than any, from unfair prejudices.
    What animal do I speak of, whose love is so unique?
    If you've truly known one, you know of whom I speak.
    There is no creature on this earth who will ever make you merrier.
    The animal I do speak of, it's the American Pit Bull Terrier.

    Here's some I've found....

    The German Shepherd Dog
    The stately German Shepherd-
    Protective, bold and smart,
    Looked into my eyes one day
    And quickly stole my heart.

    Courageous and endearing,
    A favorite of its breed,
    So proud and yet so loving,
    A steadfast friend indeed.

    Caring disposition,
    Faithful to the core-
    If you have a Shepherd’s love,
    You cannot want for more.

    Just a Dog
    From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog," or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."

    Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog." Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.

    Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

    If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

    Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

    "Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

    I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a human."

    So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile, because they "just don't understand."

    by Richard A. Biby

    There was a time, there really was,
    When I was sweet and tender;
    When SHOW DOG meant a Disney Star,
    and Bitch was not a gender.

    I went to bed at half past ten;
    I went to Church on Sunday;
    On Saturday I baked the beans
    And did the wash on Monday.

    But then I got a certain pup,
    And an erstwhile friend said, "SHOW",
    And so I did and so I do,
    OH! What I didn't know.

    I used to dress with flair and style,
    That was the life, don't knock it.
    But now each dress from bed to ball
    Must have a good bait pocket.

    I used to have a certain air,
    I wallowed in perfume,
    I used to smell of Nuit D' Amour,
    Now I smell like Mr. Groom.

    My furniture was haut decor,
    My pets a tank of guppies.
    Now I've furniture unstuffed,
    And well-adjusted puppies.

    Once I spoke in pristine prose,
    In dulcet tones and frail,
    But now I'm using language,
    That would turn a sailor pale.

    I was taught to be well-groomed
    No matter where I went.
    Now all the grooming that I do
    Is in the Handler's tent.

    I used to long for furs and jewels
    And a figure classed as super,
    Now the thing I yearn for most
    Is a nice new Pooper-Scooper.

    I adored a man who murmured verse
    Through intimate little dinners,
    But now the words I thrill to hear,
    Are just three - "Best of Winners"

    I rise at dawn and pack the car
    The road ahead's a long one.
    The one I routed on the maps
    Invaribly's the wrong one.

    I really love this doggy life
    I wouldn't care to change it.
    But when I get that BEST IN SHOW.
    I plan to rearrange it;

    When my time on earth is done
    I'll go without much nudging
    Just give me three weeks closing date
    and let me know who's judging.

    The Creation story as told by Snoopy

    On the first day, God created the dog.

    On the second day, God created man to serve the dog.

    On the third day, God created all the animals of the
    earth to serve as potential food for the dog.

    On the fourth day, God created honest toil so that man
    could labour for the good of the dog.

    On the fifth day, God created the tennis ball so that the
    dog might or might not retrieve it.

    On the sixth day, God created veterinary science to
    keep the dog happy and the man broke.

    On the seventh day, God tried to rest, but he had to
    walk the dog.


    1. The dog is not allowed in the house.

    2. OK, the dog is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.

    3. The dog is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.

    4. The dog can get on the old furniture only.

    5. Fine, the dog is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed
    to sleep with the humans on the bed.

    6. OK, the dog is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.

    7. The dog can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not
    under the covers.

    8. The dog can sleep under the covers by invitation only.

    9. The dog can sleep under the covers every night.

    10.Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers
    with the dog.

    I Rescued a human today

    Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

    As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

    As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.

    She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

    A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

    Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

    I rescued a human today.
    That is absolutely beautiful. OK, where are the tissues?
    The best things in life, aren't things

    This is one of the best i have come across,

    A Pitbull's XMAS

    A Christmas Story:

    T'was the night before Christmas and all through the house,

    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

    The stockings where hung by the chimney with care

    In the hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there

    But at the North Pole sudden changes arose

    All down to Rudolph and his ruby red nose

    Clipboard in hand, a breed expert arrived

    He motioned to Santa saying," please step aside".

    A smooth haired coat and a muscular build

    A broad deep chest our Rudolph did yield

    The breed expert's pen, created pages of ticks

    Then he suddenly called out "good lord, we've been tricked!"

    "This creatures no donkey and clearly no horse!

    I know these things! I've attended the course!"

    Look at my clipboard the boxes are full!

    It's very obvious to me: Rudolph is a pit bull!

    Out with the measuring sticks, he explained to Santa the law

    And he measured poor Rudolph from shoulder to floor.

    As the spectacle continued Santa said with a sigh

    He's a reindeer you fool! Why must he die?

    "The law is the law" the expert said standing tall,

    Then picked up his mobile and made a quick call

    The sound of sirens filled the peaceful night air

    and Rudolph removed …to who knew where?

    Days turned too weeks and confused and alone

    Rudolph pined, for the place he called home

    As the first snow started falling Rudolph gave up the fight

    And he took his last breath on a cold winters night

    You may think this is funny, if a little untrue.

    But how would you like it, if it happened to you?

    If your dog was taken because of its look?

    Because it ticked enough boxes in some silly book?

    Regardless of parentage it doesn't matter what breed

    If it ticks enough boxes then it's a done deed

    So humour me here and pretend this is true

    Think how you would feel if it happened to you.

    Cuddle your hounds while you have them close by

    For some spend this Christmas, waiting to die.

    Now back to the story, it doesn't end there

    One more short verse I need to share

    Santa fetched Rudolph's body and cried for his friend
    And swore to himself, this would not be the end
    And I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
    "The law is wrong, please help us to fight!"

    If you can start the day without caffeine,

    If you can get going without pep pills,

    If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

    If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

    If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy
    to give you any time,

    If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you
    when no fault of yours, something goes wrong,

    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

    If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him,

    If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

    If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

    If you can conquer tension without medical help,

    If you can relax without liquor,
    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

    It you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have
    no prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics,

    Then, my friend you are almost as good as your dog.
