Used Dogs intro

Billy Two Knives, the dog picture makes me want to write this.

The phrase Used Dogs has been on my mind for weeks now. Used Dogs means a dog who has had 2 or 3 homes before they get to you. Used Dogs are usually 6 months to 2 years old.

All Used Dogs have a very lengthy back story, usually filled with equal parts stupid  n cruel.

Most can be saved, but you have to know when you've reached what's possible n what you are gonna have to accept. Pinky is the definition of this concept.

This is a bran new project and it's gonna take time. I will most likely have daily thoughts on it. Billy Two Knives will no doubt be featured extensively, as she is my current and most trying Used Dog to date.

Every other day now I can be heard saying. No More Used Dogs. Billy Two Knives can have that affect on you.

Okay. I'm going to let you in on a secret I've harbored for a couple years now. Mind you this is a secret so it's just between you and me, don't tell anybody else.

For a couple years I've had it in my head a three dog story ( Billy, Pinky and Tootsies now) that would make a good children's book. Basically the story of three dogs on a journey with a desire to belong. Sorta Wizard of Oz except OZ is the end game not the jumping point. The story would be all Animals, Horses, Dogs etc. Example Whippets are the runners Billy, Pinky N Tootsie see running by with messages from here to there. One Horse (Old Smokey a Dappled Rocky Mountain Horse) is the wise old horse who tells them of a home founded by a dog named Boomie, currently run by Rudy where dogs can find a good home with lots of love and friends.

Now that Billy is in the story I'd include a tornado sequence, no not that one. In this one Billy with great excitement runs into a tornado so she can fly up into the air and see where they are and where they want to go. After which she's gently set down and wants to go again.

Billy Two Knives Action Hero.

Pinky, very country in Bib Overalls, one strap unhooked. Straw hat, stalk of wheat sticking out one side of his mouth.

Tootsie, the most energetic, motor mouthed tiny Dachshund you've ever met.
