He came when six weeks old
The runt we were told
Black and shiny
He looked so tiny
Not much hope was given
For this beagle a'living
Smut was his name
He won community fame
Ears that touched the ground
Sometimes clothespins on them would be found
He would allow many a "do"
From a baby aged two
Reach and pull tongue all the way out
He would not pout
Smut was gentile and kind
Not a better dog would one find
Never a growl or attempt to bite
His temper was light
Smut loved to sit in the corner of the yard
At night would act fiercely on guard
Barks are what you would hear
From this dog so dear
Strangers he would make tear
With silly fear
When he died
The kids had a funeral and cried
Psalms 23 was read
Over Smut's death bed

Sooooo nice to see you writing again lil-bit. Have we ever talked about SMUT before? ICE had one called BOP which stands for Brown On Pink. That was the UGLIEST dog I have ever seen. Keep up the good work.....

Inclan, yes we talked about Smut. LOL! It appears your brain cell count is fast dwindling - LOL! Soon you will be as me - with only 1 that works! :P
