Apologies and Burger King

I am a TERRIBLE blogger lately, please please please forgive me. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that I have NO time. I am going to try and get started up regularly again soon. Until then, I'd like to hear about your opinions on the recent Burger King commercial. If you haven't seen it watch below!

Proud Sick and Busy Pit Bull Mom

Hey there, everyone! Sorry I haven't posted this week, I've been quite busy. I don't have much to say but  I thought I would leave a post anyways!

I haven't seen my Pit Bull Addie in awhile and I miss her terribly. If you are new to the blog, Addie is living with my boyfriend because I live in Chicago at a building that doesn't allow dogs. I miss her quite a bit. It's hard to not see her. Today, Dad took her to get a pedicure, her nails were getting long. The lady was hesitant to do her nails because she was a Pit Bull but decided to clip them anyways. Addie was a very good girl and sat there and behaved herself. The lady was so impressed that she told them they could come back anytime! She also said that Addie should be the poster child for Pit Bull's because she was so well behaved. I love hearing things like that. I am so proud of her. She's a great dog. Mom loves you Add! :)

I would love to do an I'd Like You to Meet post again soon if anyone is interested. If you're new you can check out my side bar to see what that is all about or click on the I'd Like You to Meet label at the bottom of this post. I think this is a great way for people to read about our GOOD Pit Bulls. Hope you will send something in soon. I'd love to meet your Pittie!

A little something to end this post...

Pit Bull Statistics Part Two

Remember those wonderful Pit Bull statistics I posted the other day? Well I have come across some others that are not quite as positive. First of all, did you know Pitties are the most bred dog in America? They are, and only 1 in every 600 will find a forever home. ONE IN SIX-HUNDRED. Here are some other shocking and sad statistics.


  1. Animal shelters euthanize about 3 to 4 million cats and dogs a year. Pit Bulls can account for about 1 million of those euthanizations. 
  2. Shelters in large cities across the US have a bout a 40-60% population of Pit Bulls. The national average is 33%. Because of this large number an estimated 75% of shelters will euthanize their Pit Bulls when they come in. NO chance for adoption. Some of the more "lenient" shelters will give them a mere 24 hours. Pit Bull euthanasia rate at shelters is approximately at a disturbing 93% meaning that only 7% will find their forever home.
  3. Not only is  breeding a problem but NOT spaying or neutering your dog is an issue as well. The average fertile dog can produce two litters a year which can contain six to ten pups. This means that in six years a female dog and her offspring could produce 67,000 dogs...many whom will end up dead.
These are disturbing statistics BUT they are statistics that can be changed. We can all work together to change the world for Pit Bulls! Let's do it!

On a more personal note, the day I picked up Addie was the day she was going to to the shelter. I picked her up 60 minutes before she was headed there. I never knew until after I read these stats that I actually rescued her. Who knows what could have happened to her. I saved her life and she's made mine a little bit more worth living. I love you Addie. :)

 

All info came from this wonderful site.

Pittie Stories

As you may know I am with out my darling pit bull due to the fact that I live in downtown Chicago and dogs aren't exactly allowed in my building. No worries though, she is receiving great care while she stays with my boyfriend and his 3 roomies! She's the only girl in the apartment which means she's in charge now! Although she is well cared for, I find myself missing her like CRAZY. Right now I am living my Pit Bull life vicariously through other Pit Bull blogs and my iPhoto collection of Addie. The other thing I have been doing to cope is to find positive Pit Bull stories and I have found a couple that I would like to share with you. I think for every bad Pit Bull story there is a good one to counter act it. So heres the couple I have really enjoyed.
