A day late....

We are a day late, but wanted to give a shout out to "National Pit Bull Awareness Day". 
Logo copied from here.
Recently, my husband and  I spent time at Maricopa Animal Care & Control looking for a new best friend for my Mom.  We were amazed at the high number of pit bulls and pit bull crosses that were there.  We stopped to play with quite a few, and say a few friendly words, and hopefully give them a little love and comfort.  Despite the crowded and less than ideal conditions, we never heard a growl. 

Per the website:  "NPBAD was established to educate and foster positive communications and experiences in the communities in which we and our dogs live, and it is an initiative dedicated to restoring the image of the American Pit Bull Terrier."  

We believe there are no bad dogs.  We are against BSL and the negative image it causes for bully breeds.  After all:

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. - Ghandi


  1. Love the pittie post, the pics and quote are perfect! Have a great day!

  2. Some of my good friends are pitties. Love them.

  3. It's not the dogs, its the Humans, it makes me so cross that these dogs have the terrible reputation.They are banned in the UK. I would have one tomorrow :) but treat it with love. Sorry Sam, got a bit carried away :) xx00xx

  4. Hi Y'all!
    We BSL, no bad dogs...
    Thanks for stoppin'!
    All kinds of mischief going on...
    Have a wonderful week!
    Y'all hurry back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  5. It's so sad how those pups are labelled by their looks. We hope those pups find good homes.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  6. We wish all good pitties and their owners all the best.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Amen to that. Most pups are only as good as their humans, if that makes any sense. Many of our good pals are wonderful pitties.

  8. A good post with a great reminder! I've never met a Pit Bull that wasn't as friendly as a Golden!

  9. Great post! We always try to keep those ideas in check when we meet pit bulls. We have a pittie friend at the dog park who Finn loves to play with!

  10. I have lots of pittie buddies and none of them have a bad bone in their bodies! We are totally against BSL too!! Punish the deed not the breed! :-D Lovely post!!

  11. I've never met a pit bull who I didn't like. They're handsome and so athletic. And, all the ones that I've met have been super friendly. So, I join you in celebrating their special day.

  12. We used to have a friend who was a Pittie! (He moved.) He was the SWEETEST guy ever!
    Play bows,
    PS: Thanks for giving some love to the pups!

  13. That is so sad. I do hope they all find homes and this stupid BSL stops. I'd also like to see recreational people stop breeding these dogs!!

    I also hope someone is feeling a bit better at your house. :-)
