Jo Jo Bulldog

Sitting at my feet
Smelling of mildew
Abused as we know
The head of a Snapping Turtle
A large fighting dog of the 1800's
American Bulldog
Everybody's friend at adoption shelter
Bit 5 people
Animal control "gonna put him down"
PTSD = Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
He was afraid of the dark
Lost a sex organ, driven over by a truck
Hateful mean people hurt this...
Innocent creature
Painful arthritis, I related to him
Only defended himself
Trusted only several kennel workers
And the Volunteers
Putting hot dogs into his
Excited and hungry jaws
He had separation anxiety
Went frantic every time I left
Pushing his head against the fence
He cried out like a puppy
Then we would meet again
I taught him not to bite my hands
And gave him bacon dog treats
The truck came for euthanasia
As I tied my tennis shoes
I felt his big warm tongue on my face
And he said a heroic's goodbye
With tears in his eyes
And in the Devil's grip
I yelled to him...
"See you in Heaven Good Boy"
And they restrained him
And drove down the gravel pathway
