I know there are some pittie lovers out there without blogs, and I didn't want to exclude them from our Pitty Post Day, so I invited them to send me an email that I would include on my blog. Well, I meant to post this on Monday, but I got carried away with all of the posts that everyone had! So, I'm posting it today. Please enjoy this heart warming story from my friend Minnie, the Pit Bull!
Minnie here, and I am proud to be a pit bull type dog! Many of my 2 legged friends and family had never met a dog that had my sparkling almond eyes, wide smile and blush-pink nose before I made my way into their hearts! Mama says that’s the most rewarding part since adopting me.
In honor of Blogville's Pittie Post Day, I’d like to tell you about my best pal, Peepers. Peepers is less than a quarter Pittie, but some say we look like sisters and that’s fine by me! Peepers was adopted by my Grand-mom and Grand-pop last year from the Baltimore Humane Society. And would you believe she’d probably never seen another dog before? Or chased a squirrel? Or dove for a Frisbee? Or chomped at the fluffy moths that flutter along the patio light? I heard grand-pop say that's because Peepers is blind.
Grand-pop asked me to help socialize Peepers and show her the ropes about all there is to know about being an obedient little lady. I happily obliged as I knew spoonfuls of peanut butter would be waiting as reward. First, I wanted to show her how to have off leash fun around the house. We did have to start sloooowly, so I laid down submissively so she could come and sniff and know I'd be gentle with her. Now we romp around like the best of ‘em! I try to make sure that Peeps doesn’t run into those rough trees and prickly bushes but sometimes she’s just too quick for me! Since I love food, next on the list was how to get treats with a basic ‘sit’ which she took to quickly. Between you and me, sometimes Grand-pop becomes a treat dispenser if you just give him the ol’ puppy eyes. But I didn’t tell her that ‘cause it my own secret. Next on the list was loose leash walking and general walking manners. My mama taught me to behave like the gem that I am out on our walks ‘cause some folks may be uncertain of my charming blocky head. I think that’s just plain silly! I told her it’s good for all dogs to know their manners outside, plain and simple.
Wouldn't you know?! It was pretty easy showing my blind pal Peeps the ropes! And would you believe that Peeps has also shown me a thing or two? We went swimming last year, and she couldn't even see the water but took to the pool like a fish! Mama says I cried when I saw the pool and only went in after I saw my dad splashing around. Also, Peepers shows me that sharing my bones and peanut butter ices can be a wonderful thing, which mama said I needed to work on anyway (nobodys perfect I guess)!
Happy Blogville Pittie post day everyone. Cheers to all of the wonderful canine companions out there and their loving, responsible owners!
