“Ancho”

(“Drew Woods Ancho d’Pepperville”)

August 25, 2005 – April 26, 2017

Lay down my dear puppy, lay down and take your rest
Won’t you lay your head down on your mother’s breast
I love you you, oh, but Opal loves you the best
And I bid you good night, good night, good night
And I bid you good night, good night, good night
And I bid you good night, good night, good night


It’s a dog’s life
