Dogs over Blogs

Oh, hey! You there, come on in. Look- it’s super fun!

LOL. This is the face Trix gives when Bobby tries to cuddle with her. He never gets as far as this kitty before she runs away in fear. And he takes up her whole spot…

Punching it out

When I see PETA crap and people arguing for and against shelter pets (WTF?!) and all the just plainly useless and unnecessary hate and bigotry, we have a violent solution. My pit bull and I do this whole punch/belly thing to get it all out. Basically it involves me getting her right in the belly (with rubs) while she punches me in the jaw with her blockhead and licks me half to death. I think we can manufacture enough stupid in our own house rather than read it online….

Trixie’s new thing is hilarious. She catches the ball in the air and then dives a hardcore roll. Gets up and comes to me, then does another dive roll and brings the ball.  It’s funnier in the leaves, and I got seriously funny video of it yesterday but cannot get it on my computer. And even if I could, it’s MP4 so I can’t post it anywhere. Balls. The other kind.
This is right before some whore-b came and just stood with her pom in the entry area between the gates. I wish I had been much slower. I was like you can come in. Bitch is all “I know I can. But they are too big for my dog.” I said, we’re allowed to be in here too, you know? She was like he has a leg (yeah, her English blew). I said my dog does too. Next time I will wait until she freaks the fuck out. And be like, did you not notice my dogs didn’t even look at your little thingy, much less do anything that would be harmful. So stupid. I am not a morning person, especially pre-run and coffee, but no need to be a total rude C before 8 am. That takes effort. Effort to be rude is very unappreciated. And unnecessary.

Took these this morning at the Museum and Kelly Drive. 6.1 miles at the door. Saved as 5.9. I will never use this app again after Sunday. But upside? I am at 33 officially (at least 36-38 in reality), ranked 175/2706. My pace is done and I have not one time turned the app off when I was done, so it looks like I am running like 12 or 13 minute miles after I shower and make the dogs breakfast/dinner.

Ugh. And now Broad Street is going to lottery. I am not cool with that. I do not see how that is more fair. So, they are giving preference to people who’ve been doing it for years and people who watch the date and schedule their week around it opening could be totally left out. I honestly think people who have never done it should get preference. Hopefully my sister can get me in with her team. Evs. I have a headache from hell, day 2 and I never get headaches. Happy Friday….

You know it’s hot if the beast is just sitting with her ball in the AM. And panting. She is in such amazing shape that the heat usually does not even register with her. Much less at 6:45 in the morning. Yet here she is and it’s only getting worse…
Related but not really: I hope they catch the mysterious dog (THE WOLF DOG!!! in NE Philly), it’s got a shit ton of fur and looked hot days ago. Not to mention lost and confused. People are so stupid calling him a wolf dog. The fuck? I think the heat is lowering my tolerance for dumbasses even more than usual (one  particularly rude jerkoff more than others). And it’s only getting worse. Stupid northeast a-holes. BEWARE of the dog that with all the fur—-it’s a monster! That just lays in the grass outside the woods. Stupid stupid assinine. Even worse- now there is an “OWNER” coming forward? Bet this jackass has 3 brown teeth, a wifebeater, reeks of cigarettes and 40s and has a story that makes lies I told in kindergarten seem (even more) brilliant.

This is Mazzy—the rescue companion of Dan Featherston of Temple’s English Department. Last spring, Featherston taught a course called “Animal Welfare & Human-Animal Community,” an honors course offered through Temple’s Community Learning Network, in partnership with the Pennsylvania SPCA.  Look for it again next fall…

Aw, one of my favorite little pittie girls Mazz is so famous! And educational. She goes to college, smarty pants. How pretty is she?! She is actually the reason I have the beast. Mazz used to be my neighbor and I loved her sooo much that when Trix’s profile pic (pose) looked like this one adorable pic of Mazzy, I put her on the list for Rocky to meet when going to get a foster. (Also, she was second longest in the shelter with no leads). Tricked me right into thinking I might get a little angel because Mazzy is so good and they looked so alike. Ha. Not really, I did not judge the dog by the cover, but I know their similarity is what drew me to Trix’s pic to begin with. Thanks a lot Mazz! Look at that ridiculous tongue. XXXXOOOO

Scaredy Cat of the Day: Animal Planet’s My Extreme Animal Phobia attempts to scare the fear out of a woman who is deathly afraid of kittens. 

So, I’m guessing this woman’s homepage is not I Can Has Cheezburger.

Seriously. All I got from this video is super sad. All those poor little shelter kittens being subjected to this jackass. This bitch right here. Acting the total fool at a bunch of adorable little munchkins. She shouldn’t even be allowed in a shelter with that kind of stupid. It’s like this cop I saw this morning. We were running, but I tore the shit out of my left hip flexer, so I was taking it pretty easy. There were cops EVERYWHERE downtown, and when we got to Rittenhouse one stopped to see if I was okay- stupid limp when I stopped running. And I asked why there were so many of them, it was Occupy Philly, etc. There were 3 cops at the entrance, one dumbass pipes up to ask if Trixie was a pit. I said yes, whatever. He was like is she friendly? I said yes and was like, oh, do you want to see her? He jumped out of his stupid skin and uniform and looked like I was a perp about to shank him. Meanwhile, the evil beast on the short leash didn’t even know the cops were there as she got into the grass and shrubs on the lookout for squirrels. Like yep, be careful, she might take notice of you eventually and then what? Break off of the leash and go after his stupid ass, belying her entire personality to date? Doubt it. That idiot should marry this idiot and they can be afraid of their shadows together.

I just found out today that the dog that I wrote an article about last week, the senior that looked like and maybe was related to my Rocky, died this weekend. I mean, balls. People suck so hard for abandoning especially their senior animals. He must have been so fucking confused and scared. UGH, i love my Rocky so much and picturing even a version of him going through that is heartbreaking. It totally hurts so bad to have failed this dog I never even met. And his owners just went about their stupid fucking lives after having him for 10+ years.

This is a pretty great article. It is long, but worth it. It provides a lot of information the general public doesn’t know or doesn’t want to know, but without being too graphic to read. It’s real and describes the category of dogs called pit bulls very well. How the traits that people use to make them fight are the same reasons they are really fun and loyal pets. It’s the same athleticism and eagerness to please that make them so sweet and cuddly and amazing training and running mates. It’s very well done and a great mix of facts and individuals’ experiences. It also breaks down some stereotypes about who the people are who fight dogs and what the whole process is- for people who think it’s a simple past-time.

A friend just posted a note that also makes this ring true about the stereotypes. Her neighbors got a “pit bull” puppy and had the DNA test done. It yielded a mix of Airedale, German Shepherd and American Bulldog. Education is the only way to change perception. Beware of vicious beasts such as this:
