Pit Bulls are great family dogs!

I love my dog! I should say our families dog, but really it's mine. He's been with me before my husband and before my daughter. His name is Cago... short for Chicago. Bella calls him "cabo"! It's starting to catch on!

I got Cago when I lived in Arizona. He was a rescue pet from a shelter.

He is also a PIT BULL mix. Pit Bulls get such a bad rep as fighter dogs, by people who breed them to fight. The fact is if you train any dog ( or any other living creature) to kill and fight, more then likely they will.

I was surfing online and I have found many websites against this reputation and with strong evidence too.. Pit Bulls have a strong if not obsessive need to please, I know this first hand with my experiences with Cago. He is the most loving, loyal, obedient dog I have ever had. It just saddens me when I see the media and people, who are not even educated about these dogs, make assumptions based on cases where the owners were at fault. This breed is even banned from cities.

"Dogs are products of their environment. Dangerous dogs are not born, they are created," said Adam Goldfarb, director of the pets at risk program for the Humane Society of the United States in Washington, D.C. "When you hear about a dog being set on fire or attacked by an ax, it usually involves a pit bull and it's not their fault. In some communities, there is a perception that pit bulls have less worth than other dogs," Goldfarb said.

"The American Pit Bull Terrier is a good-natured, amusing, extremely loyal and affectionate family pet, which is good with children and adults. Almost always obedient, it is always eager to please its master. It is an extremely courageous and intelligent guard dog that is very full of vitality. Highly protective of his owners and the owner's property, it will fight an enemy to the death. It is usually very friendly, but has an uncanny ability to know when it needs to protect and when everything is okay."

Peanut butter Jelly... what?

The other day I noticed something funny that had dried on to my dog. It was crusty by the time I noticed it. It didn't smell very nice, and I think it had been there a while. My dog has never rolled in poo before and I am usually there when he is let outside, so I don't know how it could have gotten there if that was the case.

Today, I noticed another something funny on my dog. I bent over to get a better look and there on one side of him was peanut butter and on the other side, almost symmetrical, was some grape jelly. Now, I wonder who could have put this here. Bella, not more then an hour ago, was enjoying her peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I'm pretty sure the two incidents are related!

She really loves her doggy though. It tingles my heart to see them get along!
