Seen through the eyes of Mr. Clean
I had the opportunity to see Awesome Buck a handful of times out side the box, and he was truly AWESOME.. The first time I saw Awesome Buck was at an AADR show outside of San Antonio, TX. He was screaming in the show ring displaying his dominance and confidence. This amazing specimen had the confirmation to allow him to compete in the fast lane. Awesome buck was later awarded best in show by B.Bailey that day.
Months had pasted and feud was brewing between the Awesome Buck and Macho Buck camp. Both were claiming to have the best at 51 lbs. After much debating back and forth they were never hooked. Except for one raining day in the South East Texas area at an AADR weight pull. The event was being held in J.W. backyard. However, many spectators couldn’t weather the storm and left due to the rain conditions. The moment had finally come to see Awesome Buck and Macho Buck compete on the weight pull track. They both met at the scale Awesome Buck was clearly the smaller dog which it came in at 51, Macho Buck the bigger dog came in at 55 pounds and then on the track.
Both dogs were pulling an unreal amount of weight In the flash flood storm conditions. It was an amazing display the two cousins were back to back. Awesome Buck was the craizer of the two.
It’s like the dogs were talking to each other as they were screaming back and forth, pulling and stretching their bodies across the weight pull track. Awesome Buck was being couched by a Little Boy Chico Junior , he was using an umbrella as a toy. Macho Buck was being couched by Dtwon and Atown, on the last pulls Macho Buck got a bit distracted , and they used instead of the toy, they switch to KFC fried Chicken. On the regular rules that was a disqualifier , yet this was a fun show, and what a fun show that was. All the expectators got a legal displayed of two of the best reknown dogs of their era. There were two big identical trophies. One read Most weight pull, and The other one read Most weight pull per body weight.
Machobuck ended up winning the most weight pull by one brick, Awesome Buck got Most weight pulled by body weight. Awesome Buck let the track with blood on his paws , screaming. He had pulled so hard that he peeled his paws. Both astonishing looking animal. Above the pack.
Anyways, the memory that I remise often about Awesome Buck are the characteristics he displayed. Something we all look in life, that bulldog, that Rudy, that Rocky Balboa, never giving up, screaming and demanding more! In closing, Theodore Roosevelt once said “The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who knows the greats enthusiasms, the great devotion, spend himself on a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph…….. never tasted victory or defeat. “
