HATS OFF TO LEON - By J. Ramirez
Last night, my six month olf Saint Bernard, Prairieaire Sweeps of Sasko (Leon, as we call him), became a hero. During the four months that I've had him, he has done everything from chewing the legs of my color television set to mutilating my best suit. At least he has done something to compensate for all his misdeeds. Late last night, he began clawing at the front door. I was trying to sleep, and was annoyed because I had to get up and let him out. I should have suspected something then because Leon always used the back door without exception, for his 'outings'. As soon as I let him out, he started running and barking like a fool, then discouraged, he returned and laid down. I no sooner got into bed when he started to scratch at the door again. By this time I was pretty agitated because he was ruining my front door. I let him out again, but this time, he took off barking down the street. My sister was still up at the time, so I sent her to look for him while I dressed. We found Leon sitting on the neighbor's porch barking and scratching at the door. It was then that Charlene noticed the smoke pouring out of the air vents. We knocked and received no answer, so immediately phoned for the Fire Department. They arrived just in time, as the neighbor was covered with soot and overcome with smoke. No sooner had she been removed from the house, it went up in flames. The Fire Chief believed she may have been in the smoke filled house for two hours. Leon was not on hand when the Fire Chief questioned the neighbors, so his heroic deed went overlooked until the next day. Due credit was given him for his sounding the alarm which resulted in the saving of the neighbor's life. Having done his good deed, he was found sleeping contentedly on his rug in front of the fireplace, following all the excitement.

LAMENT FOR THE THIRD LEG - By Pat Behrns
We've labored a year, to get the last leg -
You'd turn a deaf ear if I'd threaten or beg -
If you came not in season with one leg to go
You found other reasons to goof every show!

Then came the last show to which we could go,
And you did it quite nicely while I all aglow,
Left the ring for the down-stay -
We've made it, I know............

It seemed we would never get over the hump
In the ring you assured me you'd never seen a jump.
I said to myself "You black-hearted deceiver,
I'll get a POODLE or GOLDEN RETREIVER!"

Pardon me while I weep, forgive this big wail -
Did you have, at this point, to get a flea on your tail?
Dear friends, there's a moral, take head to my plea,
So close to the title - don't lose by a FLEA!
