I wish YOU a Merry Christmas!

First of all, I just want to take the time to thank everyone who has read the blog over the past 5 months. When I started this blog I never imagined it would be read all over the U.S. and in 50 other countries in the world. I am honored and excited for it to become even MORE popular. I wish all of you a Merry Christmas.


Second of all, I am changing the banner on Christmas Day. If you want your Pit Bull to be considered please send a photo to dontbeapitbully@gmail.com AND if you have no idea what I am talking about read this post.


Thirdly, don't forget about the Pitties in shelters this Christmas. If you can, go save one. I wish I could.


T'was the night before Christmas
And the shelter is dark,
The whole place is silent,
Not even a bark.
The dogs are all locked in their pens for the night, the staff has gone
home
and turned out the light.

As I lay my head down on the cold concrete floor, I fondly recall my
home
from before.
The family I loved, who loved me right back, we'd share everything --
from
secret to snack.
Things couldn't be better this time last year, but that has all changed
and
now I am here.

I won't see the tree, the lights, or the snow, I'm scared and alone, my
spirits are low.
The others like me weren't put up for adoption, home for us isn't an
option.
We've been locked up in cells as if we were crooks, we don't deserve
homes
because of our looks.
Diesel, or Bingo, or the young one named Percy, deserve to be loved but
shown no mercy.

While families celebrate holiday cheer,
I know in my heart that my end is near.
The vet will arrive, the lights will go on, by the time you awake, we
all
will be gone.
A stranger will come and take me away,
I'll never wake to see another day.
As I close my eyes I'll shed you a tear, The fondest of memories I'll
always
keep near.

The only thing I've ever asked of Santa Claus, is to stop all these
unfair
and ridiculous laws.
You said without me, your life was not full, so why does it matter that
I'm a "pit bull"?

In my dream Santa shouts when he's finished his deed,
"MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL...REGARDLESS OF BREED"!'


And lastly don't forget to enjoy your Pitties this Christmas season. Oh, and take pictures of them on Christmas morning and send them to me! :)
