Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Winter Of Life Please make his trail level, As he travels these last few miles, Provide shade away from the heat of day, Where he can stop and rest for awhile. If it rains let the drops be gentle, If it blows let the breeze be warm, Let the winter of life be kind, Provide shelter and keep him from harm. Please Lord, if he must suffer, Lord, he is old and weakened, He walks where he used to run, In his youth he was always a happy dog, Now he sleeps his days in the sun. Please make his trail level, As he travels these last few miles, Provide shade away from the heat of day, Where he can stop and rest for awhile. If it rains let the drops be gentle, If it blows let the breeze be warm, Let the winter of life be kind, Provide shelter and keep him from harm. Please Lord, if he must suffer, Give the pain and hurting to me, He has been thru life’s raging waters, As only a mans dog can be. He doesn’t deserve to be hurting, Give the pain and hurting to me, He has been thru life’s raging waters, As only a mans dog can be. He doesn’t deserve to be hurting, He has lived a hard and long time, I hope as he leaves he'll be knowing, Your love, as he has always known mine.I raised him, Lord, from a puppy,We have followed some rough rocky trails, Please Lord, make this last trail gentle,As he comes to where love never fails...........

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! The Snuggle Puppy.... Is he the one, that puppy there,The one that likes to snuggle?Can I take him with me,To love and hug and cuddle?Is he the one, the pup you got?Boy! he's growing fast.Sure that's what you wanted?Nah, never gonna last.Is he the one, just brought in?They say he is too large.Put him in the end cage,Write down what to charge.Is he the one, the big one there?Yep he'll guard our house and home.Chain him in the back yard,He'll be ok alone.Is he the one the angel asked,Taking him away.Never more to be abused,Or in the snow to lay.Is he the one the woman asked,Her dogs all prancing round.The one with none to wait for,Well now he has been found.Yes your the one I know it,Go find a friend or three.You will all be mine now. Come cross the bridge with me........Author unknown

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! The Holiday Season 'Tis the holiday season, and all through the house The puppies are squeaking an old rubber mouse. The decorations which had merrily hung on the door Are scattered in pieces, all over the floor. The stockings that hung in a neat little row, Now boast a hole in each one of the toes. The tree was subjected to bright-eyed whims, And now, although splendid, it's missing some limbs. I catch them and hold them, be good I insist. They lick me, then run off to see what they've missed. And now as I watch them, the thought comes to me, That theirs is the spirit all holidays should be. Should Children and Puppies yet show us the way, And teach us the joy that should come with this season? Could they bring the message that's written above, And tell us that, most of all, Happiness is Love!! A Dog Poem By: Author Unknown

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Funny Dogs - Jokes & Quotes....“It was a fine fall morning in Paris, crisp and clear, and Benji was quite full of himself, cavorting near the fountain, playing with the children who had inexplicably materialized out of nowhere at the first whiff of a movie star. Their faces radiated and they took turns gently stroking his head. Those Benji chose to favour with a big sloppy lick exploded with laughter, and one young girl ran to her mother, screeching in French that she would never wash her face again.”Joe Camp, writer of Benji........ Mrs. Campbell once attempted to smuggle her pet Pekingese through customs by tucking him inside the upper part of her cape. "Everything was going splendidly," she later remarked, "until my bosom barked."by Beatrice Stella Campbell........“Dogs lead a nice life. You never see a dog with a wristwatch.”George Carlin.........“A Chihuahua. They're good. If you lose one,just empty out your purse.”Jean Carroll....... “I am cursed with a right leg that arouses the desire of any male dog that happens to be passing. I used to think that this only happened to me but I've discovered that many people have the same problem.They have a femme fatale limb.”Jasper Carrott........... “Every dog has his day, unless he loses his tail,then he has a weak-end.”June Carter...........“I have a great dog. She's half Lab, half Pit Bull. A good combination. Sure, she might bite off my leg, but she'll bring it back to me.”Jimi Celeste

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Walking in a Doggie Wonderland..........Dog tags ring, are you listenin'?In the lane, snow is glistenin'.It's yellow, NOT white I've been there tonight,Marking up my winter wonderland.Smell that tree? That's my fragrance.It's a sign for wandering vagrants; "Avoid where I pee, it's MY pro-per-ty!Marked up as my winter wonderland."In the meadow dad will build a snowman,following the classical design.Then I'll lift my leg and let it go Man,So all the world will know that it's mine-mine-mine!Straight from me to the fence post,flows my natural incense boast;"Stay off my TURF, this small piece of earth,I marked it as my winter wonderland."

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! The Bed Puppy.........Now I lay me down to sleep,The king-size bed is soft and deep.I sleep right in the centre groove,My human can hardly move!I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight,And here is where I pass the night.No one disturbs me or dares intrudeTill morning comes and "I want food!"I sneak up slowly to begin,My nibbles on my human's chin.She wakes up quickly,I have sharp teeth -I'm a puppy, don't you see?For the mornings here and it's time to playAlways seem to get my way.So thank you Lord for giving me,This human person that I see.The one who hugs me and holds me tight,And sacrifices her bed at night!

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Lone Dog by Irene Rutherford Mcleod.......I'm a lean dog, a keen dog, a wild dog, and lone; I'm a rough dog, a tough dog, hunting on my own; I'm a bad dog, a mad dog, teasing silly sheep; I love to sit and bay the moon, to keep fat souls from sleep. I'll never be a lap dog, licking dirty feet, A sleek dog, a meek dog, cringing for my meat, Not for me the fireside, the well-filled plate, But shut door, and sharp stone, and cuff and kick, and hate. Not for me the other dogs, running by my side, Some have run a short while, but none of them would bide. O mine is still the lone trail, the hard trail, the best, Wide wind, and wild stars, and hunger of the quest!

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! WHY OWN A DOG?........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 dog is no trouble, and two are so funny.The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.The fifth one's delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,You find you can live with a houseful of 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, it's no bother, you've said.They're really no trouble, their manners are great.What's one more dog 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 dogs you can add,The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.The vet and food bills grows larger, you owe BIG 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 your shrubs are dead too,But 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 one comes and climbs in your lap.His look says you're special and you know that you willKeep 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.God, winter's a hassle, the dogs hate it too.But they must have their walks though they're numb and your blue.Late evening is awful, you scream and you shoutAt the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.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 life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.Yes, those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game........Unknown Poet

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Prayer for a dog.........Treat me gently beloved master, and I will love you with a full and happy heart.Show me patience and I will learn to understand your every word and action. I will even protect you with my life if yours is at any time in danger.Speak to me often, for your voice is music to my ears and I await even the simple sound of your footsteps, knowing soon you will be near.Shelter me from nature's bitter cold and wet and I in return will warm your feet beside the hearth. Or, if life should be unkind, I will find a place of comfort for us both, for your pleasure is my dearest wish.Play with me, for I seek your challenge just as I seek to please you. I will follow a thrown ball to the ends of the earth if you choose it and I will swim the seven seas just to see you smile.Fill my bowl with fresh water and see that I'm well fed, for I cannot speak to ask you and am completely at your mercy. But my trust in you is so complete, I know you will never do me wrong.And beloved master, when I grow old and the time comes to say farewell, hold me gently in your arms and I will go without a whimper. For with you I am safe and secure. A dog who gave love and received it with a grateful heart.Copyright © 2005 Phylis Feiner Johnson All Rights Reserved

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! The Meaning of Dog Rescue.......Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,All nicely tucked up in my warm new bed.I'd like to open my baggage, lest I forget,There is so much to carry - so much to regret.Hmm . . . Yes there it is, right on the top.Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss;And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.Will you add to my baggage, will you help me unpack?Or will you just look at my things -And take me right back?Do you have the time to help me unpack?To put away my baggage, to never repack?I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,But I do come with baggage -Will you still want me?A Dog Poem By: Author Unknown

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Old Dogs Do Not Die.......We have a secret, you and I,That no one else shall know,For who, but I can see you lie,Each night, in fireglow?And who but I can reach my hand before we go to bed,And feel the living warmth of you and touch your silken head,So young again, and free.And only I can see you swim.In every brook I pass.And, when I call, no one but I can see the bending grass.And only I walk woodland paths,and see, ahead of me,Your small form racing with the wind........Author unknown

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! "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, soshe wouldn't be afraid.As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of mycage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepersget 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 thefuture to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down onher knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head upagainst the bars to comfort her.Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down hercheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door openedand her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep hersafe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to seethat 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." ~ Author unknown ~

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! The Creation 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 travelled far and wide and everywhere he went, a little creature followed him until it's 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." A Dog Poem By: Author Unknown

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! A Loan From God...........God promised at the birth of time, a special friend to give,His time on earth is short, he said, so love him while he lives.It may be six or seven years, or twelve or then sixteen,but will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?A wagging tail and cold wet nose, and silken velvet ears,a heart as big as all outdoors, to love you through the years.His puppy ways will gladden you, and antics bring a smile,as guardian or friend he will, be loyal all the while.He'll bring his charms to grace your life, and though his stay be brief,when he's gone the memories, are solace for your grief.I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,but lessons only a dog can teach, I want you each to learn.Whatever love you give to him, returns in triple measure,follow his lead and gain a life, brim full of simple pleasure.Enjoy each day as it comes, allow your heart to guide,be loyal and steadfast in love, as the dog there by your side.Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labour vain,nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again?I fancy each of us would say, "Dear Lord, thy will be done,for all the joy this day shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.""We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may,and for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.""But shall the angels call for him, much sooner than we've planned,we'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand."A Dog Poem By: Author unknown

Alabama Gang barking a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Your Best Friend "The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is the dog. A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey thru the heavens." A Dog Poem By: Senator George Vest - 1870

As far as Japanese attacks on non-continental states during World War II are concerned, the attack on Pearl Harbor gets the press. But in 1942, Japan bombed and landed troops on the Aleutian Island chain, and subsequently occupied the Islands of Attu and Kiska. It was a battle both against people and against the elements, and thousands died. Because the area was so remote and the weather so bad, it took the United States almost a year to claim back the area.^**.~.**^. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.WHAT EXACTLY IS ALASKA DAY********* On March 30, 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward purchased Alaska from Russia for the price of $7 million or, roughly two cents an acre, because Alaska is made up of a lot of acres. At the time, the land was considered largely worthless, and the deal was ridiculed as what you've probably heard was called "Seward's Folly." The land formally transferred over on October 18th of the same year, and that day is now celebrated by trivia quizzes the world over.^**.~.**^. Nowadays, Alaska accounts for twenty-five percent of the country's oil production, most of its Salmon, Crab, Halibut and Herring, and apparently, even makes sure kids get letters from Santa Claus every year. Maybe it wasn't such a bad purchase after all.^**.~.**^. In 1952, a town in Alaska was named "The North Pole" in hopes of drawing a toy manufacturer to the area, apparently from people figuring that toy manufacturers prioritized town names above things like, you know, shipping costs. But the name seems to have worked out. While going to the actual North Pole is pretty challenging, tourists can make it to Alaska. People come each year to visit the place which has street lights decorated like Candy Canes, Police Cars colored Green and White (the Ambulances and Fire Trucks are Red), and a series of streets with names like Santa Claus Lane and Kris Kringle Drive.^**.~.**^. In addition, a store there called Santa Claus house has sent, according to their website, almost 2 million letters to kids and adults around the world from people who wanted a letter with that North Pole postmark affixed. The local Post Office there will also send out the letters you mail them with that same postmark. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.SARAH.~.PALIN.^**.~.**^.********** A 2002 Washington Post Article said 820 Moose (or is it Meese? We're really not sure) were killed by cars each year in the State. In the 2008 Presidential election, Sarah Palin took heat for saying Moose stew and Moose burgers were some of her favorite foods, but in Alaska, Moose is what's for dinner? While most States' road kill consists of smaller animals, in Alaska, people run into Moose, Caribou and Bears. You might think that makes for a big problem, but really it's not a problem at all. Local law says that road kill is the property of the State and when you hit an animal, you have to call a State Trooper, who will come, clean up the meat and send it off to charities who will distribute it to the poor ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles &heats; Misha ~Little Bear~

God made Man and Bird and Beast. But, God didn't make the Dog. He already had one. • **************HISTORY OF THE SHIH TZU************* The Shih Tzu's origins are ancient, and steeped in mystery and controversy. A recent study revealed that the Shih Tzu is one of the 14 oldest dog breeds, and dog bones found in China have proven that dogs were present there as early as 8,000 B.C.****** Some believe the breed was developed by Tibetan Monks and given as gifts to Chinese royalty. It is also speculated that the Shih Tzu was developed in China by crossing other breeds with the Lhasa Apso or Pekingnese. Regardless of where the breed was developed — Tibet or China — it's clear that the Shih Tzu was a Treasured Companion from the earliest times. Paintings, art, and writings from the China's Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) portray small dogs similar to the Shih Tzu. References to the dogs appear again from 990 to 994 A.D. in documents, a few paintings, and carvings.****** In the 13th century, Marco Polo reported that the Mongolian Emperor Kubla Khan kept small "Lion" dogs with trained hunting lions — not as prey, but to keep the lions calm. Some believe these dogs were the Shih Tzu. ****** During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Chinese royal families kept Shih Tzu-type dogs, and the "Little Lion Dogs" or "chrysanthemum-faced" dogs were mentioned in several documents from that period. They were reportedly small, intelligent, docile dogs that strongly resembled Lions. ****** There isn't much mention of the dogs in documents from the 1700s to the early 1900s, but many pieces of art from that period depict small, shaggy, happy dogs. ****** In 1861, the Shih Tzu became popular in the Imperial Court after a royal concubine became the Empress of China. One of Empress T'zu Hsi's first royal edicts was that anyone caught torturing palace dogs would be put to death. Empress T'zu Hsi had a great love for animals and carried out extensive breeding programs under the direct care of palace eunuchs. ****** During Empress T'zu Hsi's reign, the Dalai Lama gave her a pair of magnificent Shih Tzus, reportedly the source of the imperial palace's little Lion dogs. It's said that the Shih Tzus had their own palace and were trained to sit up and wave their front paws when the Empress visited.****** After her death in 1908, many royal families competed to produce dogs of the finest coats and colors. Because of the competition, breeding practices were kept secret. Poor-quality dogs were sold in the marketplace, and good-quality dogs were often smuggled out of the palaces and given as gifts to foreign visitors or Chinese Noblemen.****** In 1928, the first Shih Tzus, a male and female pair, were brought to England from Peking by Lady Brownrigg, the wife of the quartermaster general of the north China command. In 1933, a Mrs. Hutchins brought a Shih Tzu from China to Ireland; this dog was eventually bred to Lady Brownrigg's. These three dogs formed the foundation of Lady Brownrigg's kennel.****** Maureen Murdock and Philip Price, her nephew, were the first to import and breed Shih Tzus in the United States. There were three Shih Tzu clubs by 1960: the American Shih Tzu Association in Florida, the Texas Shih Tzu Society, and the Shih Tzu Club of America. In 1963, the Shih Tzu Club of America and the Texas Shih Tzu Society merged to form the American Shih Tzu Club. In 1969, the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club as a member of the Toy Group. •*******TRIVIA *** SHIH TZU FACTS********* •There is no such breed as an "Imperial" or "Teacup" Shih Tzu. These are simply marketing terms used by unscrupulous breeders use to indicate a very small or large Shih Tzu.****** •Shih Tzus are difficult to housebreak. Be consistent, and do not allow a puppy to roam the house unsupervised until completely trained. Crate training is helpful. ****** •The flat shape of the Shih Tzu's face makes them susceptible to heat stroke, because the air going into the lungs isn't cooled as efficiently as it is among longer-nosed breeds. He should be kept indoors in air-conditioning rooms during hot weather. ****** •Be prepared to brush and comb the Shih Tzu coat every day. It mats easily. ****** •While Shih Tzus are trustworthy with children, they're not the best choice for families with toddlers or very young children because their small size puts them at risk for unintentional injury. ****** •The Shih Tzu tends to wheeze and snore, and can be prone to dental problems. ****** •While all dogs eat their own or other animals' feces (coprophagia), the Shih Tzu seems especially prone to this behavior. The best way to handle the problem is never let it become a habit. Watch your Shih Tzu closely and clean up poop right away. ****** •To get a healthy pet, never buy a puppy from a backyard breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. Find a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs for genetic health conditions and good temperaments. ***** ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~
