This. Half in and half out of the APBT community, I really get that. Especially when the people who usually get in a twist about it do so because they're owners of, usually, older working/gamebred lines and you generally almost never find those in shelters because they keep such tight grip on them nowadays. And most mixes in shelters don't really compare to the working dog - I mean, their drive is EXTREME up the wall constantly so to call any standard bully looking dog a Pit Bull, like calling a Chessie a Lab (both retrievers but still not the same), it's really doing a disservice to the breed, especially considering the misconceptions and the gunk surrounding it with bad breedings where temperament isn't taken into consideration.

Cajun totally did the dogwalk and half of the teeter at agility today Our silly park shenanigans and jumping on objects paid off! She didn't fall or slip or look ridiculously clumsy at all. She just isn't so sure what to think about the teeter moving underneath her but that's okay. I feel like I accomplished something.

She also randomly decided my bed looked comfortable. Which, the way she sheds, this is the LAST dog I want on my bed.

I have the best dog in the world. She is so sweet. Tries so hard. Is so easy.

I'm so lucky to have her.

When Michael and I really drunk fake fight, Abrams gets very upset. Like, really upset. Poor guy didn't know who to bark at and who he was supposed to be defending.

So, there was a neighborhood party tonight.Someone made me in charge of 4 dogs,& 13 kids, all under 10 years of age. This was during dinner. It was chaos. The kids were feeding the dogs. The dogs were eating everything. They both weren't listening.

Never again.

I think I broke my dog, but in a good way. Hudson says a week of 2 toddlers, hiking, swimming, and then more hiking is too much for his wee little brain and he needs a few days to rest. Lazy slug.

In other news, he does know how to swim and liked playing retriever.

Dear rental agencies:

My dog is small to me. 40 pounds does not a giant make. He barks once a month if that for ten seconds, he is crated to prevent destruction when I'm not around, he is friendly and has his CGC. He has garnered zero complaints living in a NYC apartment. Why are you making this so difficult? I just want a place that's not in a crack den that allows dogs, I don't need anything fancy or remodeled.

Please, please work with me on this. Especially because I hope to get a second dog in the next year.

Love (not really though),
A frazzled dog owner

It's appalling to me how many renters /hotels / apartments allow kids but not dogs, IME kids are MUCH more destructive than dogs, even a "bad" dog.

I've never met a kid that ate doors, drywall, carpet, or went through glass windows.
