The Love of My Life

by a young woman, age 13

We’ve got a retarded Bordeaux bulldog from the military that sleeps on top of his dog house in the rain.  He drools a lot, has paws the size of my palms, knocks down the garbage can to eat, and chewed up my house-arrest ankle monitor. 

But he’s my baby.


Dedicated to my family and my dog
