Hail to the Pig who's changing Pit perceptions


Conversation today with girl at the Starbucks drive-thru.

Girl: Awwww... What kind of dog is that?
Me: Pit Bull. Her name is Piggie.
Girl: She's soooo cute.
Me: Thank you.
Girl: Has she ever been mean or anything?
Me: Never. She's super sweet. In fact, if we were in the same room she'd be laying down waiting for you to rub her belly.
Girl (to co-worker): Come look at this cute Pit Bull!

Here Comes Peter Puppytail

Hi Paws and Peeps!
We sure have missed y'all these past few months. In fact, cant believe this is our first post in 2011. Been a crazy year thus far - Piggie got very sick in January and then an unexpected stray-turned-foster wandered to the SWD house in February. So much to catch y'all up on in coming posts... but today, it's all about the bunny pups. Enjoy. xoxo

Pitties are Pawsome Therapy Dogs

Pawsitive portrayal of Pit bulls in the media is such a treat! I applaud Main Line Animal Rescue (MLAR) for their amazing work and MSNBC for filing this report.

I always thought Bella would become my first therapy dog.

Something tells me Piggie will beat her to it.

What do you think?

Name that Fetching Tag!

It's time to play a little game I call: "Name That Fetching Tag!"
Fetching Tags are custom made pet ID tags. They are super lightweight and in a word, PAWSOME!

I recently had a Beauty Queen tag made for the one-eye beast and it fits her pawfectly!

Now, Piggie needs a Fetching Tag and this is where my no-decision-making rumpus needs your help!

What do you think Piggie's Fetching Tag should say?

To help get creative juices flowing, here are a few photos of the sweet, silly, playful, snuggly, Pig.

All suggestions are welcome and encouraged.
Oh and one last thing...
Piggie sends a big smooch to say thanks!
