Arrival Story:
I rescued Merlin from the pound off death row. Being such a beautiful and unusual dog he was always noticed. His story unfolded to me after a few weeks of driving around town and him being noticed. He was brought from Argentina at a 3,000 dollar price to a man who owned many dogs. This man was less then your model citizen and when he boarded Caesar, (now Merlin) at a local kennel and then didn't pay for his board, the kennel owner kept the dog in a locked kennel labeling him as a vicious dog. This man then had the dog stolen from the kennel one night and knew he couldn't keep him at his place, so he had a friend "watch" him. Well the friend didn't do such a good job and Merlin escaped,being found by the pound, and then by me. The pound had him down as a great dane/pit mix, I knew he was a Dogo and was leary at first, but he melted my heart right then and there. I have since traced him back to the original breeders in Argentina, the Nores-Martinez family.

Merlin protects and loves everyone he meets. I have yet to find someone who could resist just petting him, which he loves of course. He will protect though, but only if pushed to do so, he doesn't like to, but he will. He loves children, my cat, my chinchilla and anything else that is deemed a family member. He weaves magic and that is why we call him Merlin. These are magnificent dogs!! "Coat of White Satin, Body of Steel, Heart of Gold" A Short message from Merlin "Please visit, you won't regret the wonderful pictures or the fight against SB 861.. Please vote no to BSL " Love Merlin

A Christmas Story

I want all my pup pals and gals to have a wonderful Christmas! I don't write here often but a friend of mine sent me this from the UK. Remember, punish the deed not the breed, and don't bite Santy :)

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 humor 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!"

HEHEHE..... wooooooohoooo I got journal! (diary's for gals ain't they?) I have made so many friends here my mama can't keep up, some purdy little sexy thangs out there along with some chaps that are just good pals to me. Thanks so much to everyone for the kind words and wonderful compliments.... heck, I never knew I was so dang handsome anyhows.. why, you can see the red beneath my white I am blushin so... :) This sure has made my winter more exciting let me tell ya.. I sit or lay here with my mama and she reads it all to me! It's cold up here in Montana, so we both kinda need some entertainment and companionship from time to time. She does have my friend on the desk, IZZY! She is a booootiful black chinchilla and my bestest bud! I know, what a mushy wussy I am, but what the heck, love not hate, right? I have my horses but Mom gets all excited when I get too near the poop, wonder why? Right now their poopsicles!!! She chases me and yells at me to drop the poopy NOW!! The neighbor lady doesn't speak to us, think it's my breath or Mama's radical arm waving... LOL!!! She kinda reminds me of a goose on ice doing all that waving stuff and with the wind out here, ya never know, she might just make the Wright brothers sit up and take notice..hehe. Anyhow, hope you all have a wonderful New Year and keep your tails tucked when the door shuts.... (been there, done that, not fun) Love to all my new cuties and a high five to my mates ;) Remember to keep up the good fight against BSL and be GOOD dogs, we'll show em... Night and God Bless!
