I love my dogs...

Post by EffieCollins on Tue Jan 26, 2010 7:27 pm

Okay, so... I have these two gorgeous, amazing, loving pit bulls named Sarrow and Chancey. (Sarrow is misspelled on purpose) They live outside, partially because my house is under enough stress with three kids, but partially from fear as well. Halloween of '08, my daughter got bitten by a pit pup we'd bought her and ended up with pretty bad scars on her face. So, no insidies. If it was just Sarrow, I wouldn't mind--we've had him since his puppy days and he'd kill over my kids. Chancey is a girl I rescued from neglect this past summer and I still dunno if I fully trust her with my children yet. I was letting them come in and out but my sons kept getting knocked down and it just freaked me out too much.

This is them. Red and white is my boy Sarrow and the tawny and white is my girl Chancey. They're so funny.




Anywho!

I go out to feed them and when I get to the pen, I put some food in Chancey's bowl, but when I get to Sarrow, he politely just pulls on the edge of the bag until he gets a double portion. He's angry with me, see, cause he's fat and I put him on a diet. I was feeding them both three pounds of food twice a day. Now it's only two pounds twice a day. Not that much less, right?

Anyhow, my doggies love each other very much (which is odd because Chancey was already an adult when she came to the home). Sarrow adores girlie. They're very cute together. I fuss at him for pulling the bag over and Chancey, the little shit, snuffs at me all like "How dare you?" and proceeds to clean Sarrow's face while he eats And she gave me this look... like she was scolding me!

I fucking love my dogs.

Pits are goofballs, and smart goofballs at that. We have new neighbors (I live in a townhouse) and they have a boxer. On the other side, there are two pugs and one house up has a Rottie/Sheppard mix. Any time one of the other dogs is out, Kane (my pit bull for those not in the know) has to be outside. My little social baby adores other dogs.

The other day he went out oh about seven times in the span of twenty minutes. The eighth time he thought he heard something and wanted out, I told him no. He stopped, tipped his head to the side, raised his pitty eyebrows, and then snorted at me. Yes, snorted, as in, 'how dare you, Mom. I want to go out now". Then he stalked into the living room, plopped down on his dog bed and glared at me like I was the meanest Mom ever.

Five minutes later, I went in and sat on the sofa to read, and just like always, he climbed up on my lap curled up and went to sleep. To be honest, only about a third of him fits on my lap because he weighs 70 pounds. He thinks he's a Chihuahua.

I <3 my sweet little pitty.

More pitty cuteness:

Why do all pits think they're lap dogs? Sarrow would do that to me when he was coming in. The thing about pits is that they're so expressive and just chock full of character. Chancey bounces around in their pen (they only have a chain on when they eat cause Mr. Fatass likes to shove his woman outta the way and eat hers too) and grumps if Sarrow gets out and she doesn't. I can only walk them one at a time, you know? They're strong as hell! And if he's out for too long, she cries for him.

Damien's pit is gorgeous. He's got the sweetest face! They're so social when they're raised right. I love em!

I need to get some new pics of my babies. I haven't taken any new ones since September. I wish I'd thought to take some when we had that big snow storm around Christmas. Me and the kids and the dogs were having a snowball fight. How do dogs snowball fight, you ask? Well, the humans hold the snowballs and the dogs run and jump, using their front paws to knock them out of your hands before you can throw them at the dogs. Smile And Sarrow always tries to knock me down so he can wallow me in the snow. I swear he thinks it's funny.

Kane loves the snow. He was hopping around like a rabbit. When we shoveled the walk, we piled all the snow up in one mound. Kane climbed up to the top and just hung out there like king of the hill. Smile

LOL, you know what D? I was scrolling up, and passed your earlier post upthread. My oldest boy said, "Wow! She's gorgeous!" and I was like, "Yeah, that's my friend Damien. She's a beautiful woman, huh?" and he said, "Mom. I was talking about the dog. But the woman's okay too."

LOL! You got surpassed for your pitty! (I did explain to him that Kane was a boy, but he still says Kane is gorgeous. Hehe)

LOL. Effie, I don't mind playing second-fiddle to my pup. It's so hard to believe that someone just abandoned Kane - he is such a wonderful dog, not to mention gorgeous.

Okay, last pic. I promise. This is Kane in his camo jacket with glowing demon-hound eyes.

Awwww, how cute. Er…I mean…(reengage macho mode now)…not bad, I guess. Yeah dogs are cool, whatever. Wink

In all seriousness (who me?) I’ll have to post some pics of my best pal Val now that I’ve got a decent camera.

Adorable! Pit-bulls are cool. Charlotte, NC is pitbull central. I work with the Animal Control here, and the clinics are a solid line of pits and Rottweilers. A blue and white pit was running around work one day, the sweetest guy I've ever met. He'd have gone home with me if his owner hadn't shown up to claim him.

My dog is currently trying hard to land herself in puppy purgatory. Some friends, driving home during one of our bad storms, nearly ran her over. She was sitting in the middle of the road, and they took her home. She was so thin and shocked that they thought she was a middle-aged Beagle or something.

We brought her home, and guess what, she's a hound puppy.

Oh lord. It's like having a toddler in the house. She eats EVERYTHING, up to, and including, dryer lint. She runs laps. She runs around the back yard, voicing the squirrel-trails. Smart as a whip, and willful as one too. She knows she's not supposed to do something...so she goes and does it! Miss Molly also has heart-worms. Lots of medicine in her little future.

It's been a long, long while since I had a puppy. Never had a puppy in the house, since I used to live on a small horse ranch. And, on top of that, I've had two breeds in all my dog-owning history: Shepherds and Rottweilers. BIG Sheps and Rots! By comparison to the little Molly, my last dog was the 120lb, former show-dog, male Serbian Rottweiler Cyrano. Pictures later, once they are rescued off of my dead hard drive.

Hey, it's a Sacred Dog! Actually, it's one of my four horses, Romeo! But the Plains tribes called them Sacred Dogs, so it fits, right?

JaymGates - Miss Molly is adorable.Good luck with her heart worms. I totally understand about the toddler thing; Kane is nine months old. The body of a dog, the brain of a puppy. Smile
