Dude, formerly Bailey, had been in two homes in his short 11 month old life. That was, until he found the the Lyons Family.
Dude's story to the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies theme:
Come and listen to a story about a dog named Dude
An obnoxious fox terrier who was ready for a feud
Then one day he was barking at the door
And up through Interstate 70 came the Lyons to adore.
Good people that is, came clear from Martinsburg,West Virginia.
Well the first thing you know Lil Dude's a happy boy
The Lyons' said "Dude, put that down and get your toy"
Said "obedience school is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the van and off they went to learn.
Tricks, that is. Teach him, correct him, teach and again.
Well now its time to say good luck to Joel, Sissy, Susie & Patty and all Dude's kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
You're all invited back again to their locality
To have a heapin helpin of their fox terrier hospitality.
Fox Terriers life that is. Set a spell, take your shoes off, but put them away because Dude will chew them.
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
