             “Smokey”

The lil miss was feeling creative this evening.  I hear her giggling and flashes are going off sporadically.  The camera! Sure enough, the lil miss is on the couch, laying down, arms extended out in front of her.  What is she doing?  Why taking selfies with her pup!

Ut-oh…she caught us taking selfies

That’s right, a mini photo-shoot was taking place in my livingroom.  The kid is a camera addict.  Smokey, the pup, was more than happy to oblige his kid companion.  He adores her.

As you can see, the cuteness and the fun were definitely a good combination. Oh my lil miss….

Smokey Bear

Published April 6, 2015 by lynn k scott

Smokey Bear, that would be the nickname of my 18-month old pit mix; Smokey.  He’s a bit smaller than the average American Pit Bull Terrier, as he is mixed with Bulldog.  I only stand 5’2″ and he only comes up to my knees.  That being said, my little pup packs a punch with his solid weight.

Smokey believes, if you are sitting on the couch or trying to relax, you obviously want him with you.  He has no problem almost smothering you with 50 pounds of solid love.  Your human persona will be replaced with that of cuddle machine. You are there for him to nuzzle your arms, lay his head on your heart so he can put his ears back and look into your eyes.

You are a jumping board.  When he needs to get up in a hurry, as you are the current cushion, you are magically transformed into a platform so he can spring to attention.  He will listen for the quietest sound and loudly alert you.  His favorite time to do this is between 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.  I am usually the only one up and he does his best to alert the neighborhood to the mystery sounds of city life.

This is my “ferocious” pit bull.  He loves attention, loves showering you with attention and he doesn’t even need an invitation.  He sees a person and he sees a friend.  He’s a little, solid ball of love.  Of course, when he can’t cuddle the closet human, he will settle for a snuggle with his canine brother. Good night boys.

Good night

Love Thy Bully

Published March 30, 2015 by lynn k scott

A little over a year ago, I stumbled across a page on Facebook called “Love Thy Bully“.  Joe had started the page and he was seeking Admins help to run this fun and informative bully-centered page.  It’s a positive page that promotes awareness of all the “bully” breeds.

I am a pit bull owner.  I have a pit mix named Smokey and I took him in around the time I “met” Joe.  I already had one dog, but Smokey needed a home and my latest foster had just gone to a new home.  Timing is everything after all.  I eventually had to resigned my position as a Facebook Admin because some personal issues were dominating my every waking moment.  Yet, I believe in the work Joe, his team and so many of us pit bull owners do in correcting an exaggerated stereotype of a some fantastic dogs.

I have worked in pit bull rescue.  I have been a pit bull foster mom.  I see dogs as individuals and with their own personalities. I don’t believe in breed specific legislation (BSL).  That is legally banning dogs from certain communities based on their appearance.  Funny, seems some people have forgotten how well that didn’t work when they tried that with certain people using their skin color.

While I am not stating there have never been attacks by pit bull breeds, I am realistic enough to know that the media is public enemy #1 against these dogs (imo).  They will run a pit bull attack story 200 times more than any other breed attack; if they even mention any other attacks.  While you will find bully bashers citing how there are more pit bull attacks, you won’t here them state how many more pit bulls there are in that particular area in comparison to other breeds.  That results in number skewing for their own agenda.  That’s not reporting facts.  The media is no better than yellow journalists when it comes to any pit related story.

Here’s a fun one for you:  Myth vs Fact:  Myth:  Pit bulls have locking jaws.  That’s FALSE!!!  In fact, a German Shepherd and a Rottweiler have stronger bit pressures than a pit bull.

I encourage you to visit Love Thy Bully if you have Facebook.  If I’m not mistaken, you can also find them on Twitter and Tumbler.  I don’t really use either of those other than to promote my blog, but it Tweet and Tumble, go for it.  In addition to the cutest bully pics, there is information on education, awareness, ending BSL and the like.

I have comments set to approve and this particular post will not be an avenue to bash any bully breeds. Staying with the positive energy Love Thy Bully provides, please only comment if you can share good information.  If you leave them a comment, let them know “Smokey’s mom” sent ya.
