    Floyd Boudreaux' Ace new dog Blind Billy wasn't always blind. He would lose his sight when he got hot. In his second Match, he lost his sight when he became overheated. OJ Thibodeaux & his black & white nose dog were highly regarded at 39lbs. Floyd believed if Billy could get his mouth on him, it wouldn't take long to determine a winner. Billy could bite as hard as any dog Floyd has ever seen & even harder than most of the best. He could disable one in short order. Just as Floyd figured, Blind Billy was able to get to Thibodeaux' dog several times. The longer they fought, the more he punished the black & white nose dog. Blind Billy had the black & white dog quitting. Floyd handled when Blind Billy was released & on Blind Billy's Scratch. He was counted out searching for his opponenet.

    Although it was clear the black & white wanted no more, Billy lost the contest. Perhaps he could have won several more matches afterwards, who knows, but thanks to the gifted foresight of Floyd Boudreaux, he bred Blind Billy instead. Floyd bred Billy to a good daughter, Gypsy, to produce Red (a full sister to Elias's "Pistol"). Floyd bred Blind Billy to Red to produce Lena & bred Blind Billy to Lena to produce Scrub, who was 15/16ths inbred on the old Blind Billy dog. Let us back up a minute. SP Clavelle owned a spotted dog back in them times that Gaboon Trahan used to breed to his pregnant doges. Gaboon used the one time & found him to be an average dog, but very Game. Gaboon called the dog 'Rascal' & had permission to breed to him any time, but Gaboon never owned the Red & white dog he called Rascal. Floyd bought Rascal from SP Clavelle & Floyd Boudreaux was the only man to ever register Rascal & only did so through the UKC several years after Floyd had him on his Yard Floyd bred Rascal to Lena (Scrub's mama) to produce Rascal Jr. Rascal Jr. was the sire of many good dogs one of which Jerome Hernandez called 'black person.' black person won 5 times for Jerome & one of them over Scrub. Scrub was matched his first Match at 40lbs. by Floy Boudreaux & lost this one to black person in 40 minutes.

    Don Mayfield liked Scrub & used him to go into JT Kitches & his son of Tudor's "Ch." Spike." Scrub won this contest in 1 hour & 8 minutes. Floyd Boudreaux again had gifted foresight & bred Scrub to some good pregnant doges & i'm glad he did. Scrub sired some great dogs & phenomenal producers! Scrub was bred to his half sister Candy to produce the famous Eli dog. Floyd also bred Scrub to a good daughter of Rascal Jr. to produce the great Boze dog! Boze was the most inbred Dibp dog of his time & was a great representative of his genetic pool! No Dibo dog could stay with Boze! One day a few of some great dogmen were at Floyd's after a convention held in Layfayette, Lousiana held by Gaboon Trahan. Among the gatherin were Bob Wallace, Leo Kinard, Maurice Carver, Roland Boutte & JD Elliott. Floyd got out Boze & Boze Jr. (a brother to Bullyson & Eli Jr.'s mother) & rolled them together for just a short roll. Leo said this roll was better than all the matches he had just seen! Boudreaux Reno JD said that it was blur! Both of these dogs made a mess of each other in short order. Just the look on Maurice's face! Maurice was speechless as, his jaw dropped, his mouth' fell open & his eyes bulged out. Later, Maurice said he had never seen a sight like that in all his life!

    Floyd Boudreaux became known as the breeder of Eli dogs & this is true, but we need to look at the whole picture. Folks, Floyd Boudreaux is the breeder of Blind Billy dogs! The best of the Dibo stuff!! Bullyson was a line bred Blind Billy dog! Floyd Boudreaux owned Blind Billy & Rascal at the same time. Gypsy was a good daughter of Billy & when she came into Heat, Floyd bred her as a repeat breeding back to her sire Blind Billy. Floyd also bred her a week later but this time to Rascal, as Billy was getting old & Floyd wanted pups out of the aging Gypsy. Well, Gypsy had the pups & Ray Charles could see that they were from Billy. Raymond Elias got one of the pups from this mating & named him 'Pistol.'

    the rest of it:

    Pistol was a very good dog that was shown only once. He was matched above his weight & won impressively anyway. I dont know how Maurice was able to breed him, or if he even did at all, but the ADBA pedigrees have him as the grandsire of Art's "Missy," Davi's "Gr. Ch"Boomerang" & Clayton's "Java" (the dam of Gr.CH. Art). By the way, Don Devine got a pregnant dog from Bennett Clayton named "Patty." Don registered her as off Eli Jr. & Java. When Don got the pregnant dog, all Bennett told him was that she was a sister to Art, but Bennett did not say she was a littermate. Patty was indeed of Eli Jr., but her dam was a quarter Staffordshire; a pregnant dog off Indian Bolio & a half Staff pregnant dog! But I would not mind if my dogs had Patty in their make-up because Patty's dam was a pregnant dog name Ginger. This is the same Ginger was the dam to Stinson's "Ch." Tuffy" & Stinsori & Glover's "Ch." Dolemite." Imagine that. Dolemite's mama a quarter Staff! It must have been some good Staff blood. So, Patty was a half sister to Ironhead. Maurice also said Bullyson was a son of Ironhead & he did that with the man who raised Bullyson sitting in the same room with him. Just ask Jerry Clemmons if I am telling the facts. Anyways folks no matter what Maurice's papaers say, Ironhead was a son of Blind Billy. Perhaps now you will understand why Bullyson crossed wo well with Ray Long's two pregnant doges Baby & Tuffy & Art Riley's Missy, why Eli Jr. crossed well with Bennett Clayton's Java & why Ronnie Hyde's Satchmo Bully went so well with his Bloody Sunday. Follks, it's the Blind Billy blood doing what it's done, biting hard & winning. While the world is searching for Eli dogs, the few who really understand are searching for Boze dogs. It took a daughter of Boze to create Bullyson. When Boze was 11 years old & weighed 18 lbs. less than his grandson Bullyson, Floyd held Boze's back legs & let Bullyson get a good hold on him. Floyd let go & Boze got up & downed Bullyson & kept him down for 10 minutes, doing what he wanted with him. When you realize how good Bullyson was, then consider how great Boze was! Eli & Eli Jr. were good dogs too, but none of them were in the same class as Boze. Floyd Boudreaux bred Boze to Penny, who was out of Young Rock, out of Peggy. Penny was a good pregnant dog out of an all-good litter. Boze & Penny produced Spook (Sissy). Spook's whole litter killed each other except for her & another little pregnant dog pup Floyd gave to Maurice Coin, another friend of Floyd's. Spook was given to Jerry Clemmons, a chicken man & when she came into Heat, he brought her back to Floyd's to breed her to Eli & she had 4 good pups. All 4 pups were good dogs. Another all good litter bred by Floyd Boudreaux! Bullyson, Eli Jr. Brendy & Lady, a litter of dogs that changed the Game itself! The litter changed the future of how we were to breed our dogs. Gameness alone wasn't good enough anymore. Eli dogs would & could kill them. This was the beginning of what was to be know as the Eli line of dogs. Jerry sold Spool to Doug Nightrider. Doug was like a kid with a new toy. Doug rolled Spook for the better part of a week until she finally stopped, but she was a good one. She was a Boze daughter. Boze was bred to Brendy to produce Wilkenson's "Tina." Tina was bred to Bullyson to produce CH. Bullyson Jr. & the only dog capable of dethroning his great sire, Benny Bob. Boze bred pregnant doges produce very well. Boze was a great dog. He was very fast & bit very hard. To top it off, he was very strong. Boze won only one contract Match in just under 5 minutes. Al totaled, Boze stopped 27 dogs. All the old timers used to come up with truckloads to try to Stop the Boze dog, but Boze would sen them all home disappointed, one after the other. Hell, Roland Fontenot used to come every weekend & try, but never could carry enough dogs with him to do it. Boze would make short work of them! Fred Williamson has a son of Boze he called 'Pistol' who was raised as a house pet. Word was that Pistol was a pet & a Cur & that Don Mayfield & George had a dog at 49lbs. that would prove it. Well, after enough talk, ol Fred said put up or shut up. The Match was made. Mayfield had George's blessing to shape up their CH. Gomer dog, a winner of several high dollar contests. CH. Gomer was a littermate to CH. 400, another multi-time winner. Both dogs came in on the weight & at 2:45 CH. Gomer cleared the wall & jumped right into the arms of Don's wife, Phyllis Mayfield. Now who was the Cur? A paid advertisement was published in Raymond Holt's magazine 'Pit Dog Report' shorly after the contest. The ad stated "Boudreaux' Pistol: Just an average Boudreaux dog!" The ad wasn't to peddle pups or for stud service, it was simply a statement. And it was true; Pistol was an average of Floyd's dogs. CH. Midnight Cowboy was good son of Bullyson. Linus was a Boze bred pregnant dog. Midnight Cowboy & Linus produce Redthingy's "Herman," a winner of 5 contract matches. Herman was just one of an all-good litter. Floyd sent Liza to Doyle & had her bred to Herman. This mating produced another good littter with just one cold pregnant dog. Maverick was off this litter. Maverick produced whole litters of Match dogs. Ask anyone who owns Maverick dog! Eli did his share of producing well. Floyd bred him to a Corvino pregnant dog named Glory B to produce Daniel's "CH. Tom," who was the sire of Barefield's "Ch." Saloon." CH. Saloon was the sire of Allen's "Ch." Butch" ROM. CH Sallon was also the sire of Allen's "Stripper." Butch & Stripper produced Allen's "Double Gr. Ch." Tornado," a winner of 10 matches. Of course, Eli was the best known for producing Eli Jr. & Bullyson, but only because they were bred more & therefore became more popular. Now, Don Mayfield says Floyd stole Eli from him by saying all Cry Baby's pups died. Friends, Cry Baby's pups all did die. Don & Floyd wer good friend & believe me, Floyd values his friends. I would think that if Cry Baby's pups wer valuable enough to betraya friend, I wouldn't give them away. Floyd gave Eli to JR Bush because Floyd knew he could breed more like him or better. To Floyd, a dog is just a dog, but a friend is a priceless value! Don Mayfield is just jealous. Floyd Boudreaux created Eli from Blind Billy blood. Elli was stolen from JR Bush after his 3rd Match (a Match that was raided). There is no telling how many good ones Eli produce. Ever wonder why Eli blood crossed so well with Gr. CH. Zebo blood? Who knows? Boy, these are the facts, not fiction! You can do you homework believe me I have. Just a small part of some real history."

    yeah man! i read it and was like damn! and since i am allso i huge eli fan, it was well appreciated. glad you enjoyed it bud. :)
  5. Great post. I own a pure Eli bitch (my Dad knows Floyd well) that is 15 years old and will scratch at any dog that moves. She is my house dog, She has no teeth just nubs and the neighbors staff came over and she managed to get out of my hands. No teeth didn't matter when she bit stuff crunched. She's one of the reasons we should try to preserve the old lines. IMO

    Lets see I think the part about Boze downing Bullyson is fabricated Boze was half Bullysons size Floyd grabbed his back legs and let Bullyson get a hold and Boze came to the top and downed Bullyson for 10 minutes?:cool:

    Who's to say? None of us were there so there's no telling. "Only believe what you see in this game!" A wise man told me that and it's held true to this day. YIS, DJ.
