Fetch: Pit bull Style

These pics come to us from a Kiwi internet friend of mine. As she tells it, the video was taken while the dog was starting to wear-out, so there is only one good "flip", but it's still fun to watch nonetheless. (Besides, that's New Zealand in the background!) Thankfully, there are also still pictures, which really show the athleticism of her doggie.

And make sure to watch the video, it gives the viewer a much better idea of what the dog is actually doing. The stills make it look like the dog is just jumping randomly, when in fact the dog is playing "fetch."

One of the many things about Pit bulls that I love to brag about is their natural athleticism. Physical ability and confidence can make for a very fun dog, and many Pit bulls have both in bulk.

So while there are many Pit bull videos showing the dogs excelling in weight pull or working the spring pole, I really enjoy when I find these types of videos and pics, which demonstrate the versatility of this breed's athleticism and enthusiasm for exercise.

Also, these pics should remind us all that energetic, athletic dogs have needs that are best met with consistent and vigorous exercise.

Now, that's just cool - I don't care who you are!

Why Pit bulls?

As I work to provide positive, rational, and balanced information about pit bulls, and the virtues of dogs in general, I am often (read: ALWAYS) asked why I am so taken by this breed of dog. It is a fair question that isn't always asked in a reasonable manner.

In short, I find many pit bulls to posses the qualities that I value in a canine companion: great with friendly people, loyal, goofy, energetic, athletic, intelligent, and willing. To be sure, the run-of-the-mill pit bull is a lot of dog. It is all of these qualities in a medium-sized dog that has me so taken by pit bulls.

Alas, there are many aspects of pit bull ownership that are less enjoyable. Namely, dealing with the many negative stereotypes, and the constant battle to balance the mis-information provided by the breed's detractors.
...thankfully, it only takes is a few minutes of lovin' from my doggies and I am reminded they're worth the effort.

I hope this blog gives others insight into my life with pit bulls, and most of all, provides information on the breed in general; there are a lot of misinformed generalizations about these dogs.

Please contact me with questions or comments pertaining to dogs, pit bulls, BSL, etc..

All the best,

The HSUS attempted to fund raise for the care of Micheal Vick's dogs, while at the same time suggesting that the dogs needed to be killed.

And to add insult to injury, they weren't even planning on taking possesion of the dogs.

Contact the HSUS and tell them this is unacceptable!
