"Lord, she was hotter than a two dollar pistol
She was the fastest thing around
Long and lean, every young man's dream
She turned every head in town" - The One I Loved Back Then (George Jones)
Pistol was an experiment of sorts. We entered into a co-ownership with her breeder, Erin Braybrook at All Star Bulldogges. We were meant to keep her and try her out as a cow dog. Man, did she ever deliver. That little pistol lived up to her name, baying and stopping cattle at the tender age of 6 months. She started to show extreme potential as early as 7 months and was being used part time by 9 months old. She had circlce, stop and determination to spare. She was incredible to watch, and we had extremely high hopes for her as a permanent member of the cow dog pack. Pistol was starting to show that she was also going to be a natural in the show ring with her wicked natural freestacking, peppy personality and her adorable facial expression. We had plans to test her as a catch dog on hogs, but never got the opportunity.
Pistol was taken from us while we were gathering escaped cow/calf pairs. She went after a stray and was working her back to the herd and must have ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nine months was not long enough to spend with her, but it was long enough to have a major impact on our lives. She was an incredible dog who was truly devoted to us and adored both our children. She was sweet, sassy, funny and had so much of what we expect in our Catahoulas and never dreamed that we'd find in a Olde English Bulldogge. She was one in a million, and leaves a massive silence behind her.
"Greatness passes through our lives and halts but a moment. When it travels on, it leaves behind a bittersweet memory of the sound and feel, one that I pray leaves you with a peaceful heart in the face of grief. Allowing them to be what they are born to be is not easy and comes with astounding risk, but truly opens the heart to the high and low of life. She lived it so fast but so thoroughly, I guarantee you, she wouldn't change a thing. Love has no boundary and no limit, she loved you as fiercely as you loved her. RIP Little Warrior." - Tori Earls
