Stories, facts & legends

By Lemuel D. Miller

Recently, the American Bulldog was up before the court of England being tried as a dangerous breed. In the defense of this magnificent breed this book was admitted as evidence that the breed should not be banned. The Lords of the court declared this book "American Bulldogs Stories, Facts & Legends" the "Definitive Book" of American Bulldogs, allowing the defense to win the case.

212 pages of American Bulldog history, protection, stock work and training
100+ pictures of working Bulldogs 
Stories by Bulldog legends, John D. Johnson, Alan Scott, Charlie & Darin Jones, Perry Driggers etc.
Every real Bulldogger should have this book!"

Hi Lem,
I had to just write and compliment your book "American Bulldog Stories, Facts & Legends". I have ordered a number of books on the subject matter, and yours is way ahead of the "pack"!
Well, loved your book. When do you plan to write Part two??? I'll be waiting.
Best, Kathy Gaffney Giorandino




...On Friday Jesus was scourged to provide our healing.
...On Friday it appeared as if God had abandoned His only Begotten Son. Jesus Himself
   said, “My God my God why have you forsaken me!”
...On Friday Jesus was not only crucified but was humiliated in every way possible.
...On Friday...Phil. 2:8 And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled
   Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death
   of the cross!
...On Friday Darkness covered the land and The Prince of Darkness couldn’t have been
   more pleased because he believed he had won a great victory by killing the Son of God.
...On Friday they took Jesus off the cross and laid him in a borrowed tomb.

That was Friday! But Sunday is Coming!

...On Sunday God demonstrated the fact that He had not abandoned Jesus on the cross by
   raising Him from the Dead. 

...On Sunday Jesus walked out of the tomb knowing that He had finished the job that His
   Heavenly Father had sent Him to do.

Paul wrote about this in the second chapter of Philippians when He said…, Therefore
[because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name,  10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 And every tongue frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
...On Sunday Jesus’ resurrection demonstrated that Satan had not defeated Him, but instead Jesus had won the Victory over Satan as well as Sin, Death and the Grave. 
This is what the Apostle Paul was talking about in 1 Corrinthians 15:54...“Death is swallowed up in victory.” (verses 55-56) O death, where then your victory? Where then your sting? For sin—the sting that causes death—will all be gone; and the law, which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge. 57 How we thank God for all of this! It is he who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord!

It’s maybe Friday for you because you feel abandoned by God. You feel like He’s forgotten your name and your needs. 

Hey! Sunday’s coming!” 

God has not abandoned you any more than He abandoned Jesus Christ. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified….for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." 

Jesus promised that He would be with us Even until the end of the Age and The Apostle Paul also reminded us in Phillipians 4:19 that “God will meet all of our needs according to His Glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” 

Whenever you have the grief, sorrow, rejection, pain or death, of a Friday such as Jesus and His followers had, know that Sunday is coming. 
ON SUNDAY…JESUS WAS TRIUMPHANT… Up from the grave He (Yeshua HaMashiach, the Saviour of the world.) AROSE! 
Because He arose, we now sing; He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart! You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart. 
If He is truly within me, and He is… I too, am Triumphant! 

...Bishop and Pastor Lem Miller

National CH. Joshua's Ol' Southern White 
index.2.jpgHave you ever desired to be "World Heavy Weight Champion" or perhaps the "World's Strongest Athlete" or maybe "Mr. or Miss Olympia" and become the greatest body builder in the world?  In the human race it is highly unlikely that one individual will ever be
able to become all three of the aforementioned champions.  However, in the world of canines, there is one breed of dog that most assuredly could accomplish all three!

Joshua Kennels is proud tJoshJosh_muscle.jpgo introduce you to the
"Champion of Champions"
The Ol' Southern White "type" American Bulldog.

Most likely responsible for putting courage and tenacity into every breed of dog that claims to be heroic, the American Bulldog is the breed chosen by man to do mans' toughest work. Having been known to catch and seize lions, bear, wild cats, wolves, wild boar, horses, mules and of course cattle thus, the name BULLDOG. This breed is where the terms "OL" Fashioned Bulldog Tenacity and "Bulldog Grit" come from.

Temperament tested, protection trained, these ol' time farm raised bulldogs win in the conformation ring and will win your heart as the best friend money can buy.  
Our Basenji's
The Barkless Dog from Africa

Eukanuba National Championship 
Grand Champion Veramonte's Big River Judah aka "Judah" 
 Lem Miller, wife DaVonne and Handler Cali Shattuck pictured with their Basenji 
"Winners Dog" and "Best of Winners" 
at the Eukanuba National Championship, 
Judah finished his Championship at the young age of 1 years old. He finished at the 2013 Eukanuba Dog Show receiving Winners Dog and Best of Winners for a 3 point major.  Judah started his show career with a bang winning, on his very first day, Best of Breed over a special and then going on to win a Group 4 under prestigious hound breeder-judge Pat Trotter. Shortly after, Judah went to the 2013 EBC Specialty winning Winners Dog from the extremely competitive Bred-By Exhibitor Class for a 4 point major. In the fall of 2013 at the Brooksville Dog Show, Judah won breed again over specials and then went on to win a Group 3 in a well attended Hound Group. 

2014 Update: Judah received his Grand Championship title in June having won 5  Best of Breed in 7 outings. Judah although shown sparingly in 2014 received a special invite to the Nationals for being in the top 25 Basenji's of which he was ranked #12. Judah will be breed to Aria late 2015.

Aria Breed Eukanuba 2015.jpg
Grand CH. Veramonte's Song of Winterfell "Aria" 
Wins Eukanuba National Championship
In December Aria won "Best of Breed" at the 2014 Eukanuba National Championship. At her first weekend out as a special, Aria managed to win over all other Basenji's to win the prestigious breed class two days short of her first birthday. The Eukanuba National Championships is the largest AKC dog show in the world thus we are very proud of Aria.                                                                                                                        Aria continues to amaze us through her success in the ring and in the field. In only one weekend, Aria competed at her first AKC lure coursing trial and received two 5 point majors by winning the "Open Class" the first day, and then went on to win "Best of Breed" for another major in the same weekend! Her athleticism and balanced structure allows her to be a powerhouse both in the ring and on the field. Her next outing in Lure Coursing placed her against the top Basenji in the country where she came out on top again, winning two Majors and two "Best of Breed" both days of competition.  This fall we plan to breed Judah to Aria. For more info on our Basenji's go to: veramontekennels.com
