Green’s Sausage House in Zabcikville, Texas

I bought a bulldog second hand at a flea market in Boaz, Alabama back in the 90s. Named him Scrap Iron and he became a good friend to me. That little dog loved cured meat. I can picture him staring at a boudin vending machine with slobber hanging off his anvil-heavy jaws.
