A Little Last Minute Eye Work and Some Thoughts for the Pounds

I really liked my idea last year of renting out pit bulls for New Year’s Eve parties.  Driving under the influence is 10 000 times more lethal to humans than pit bulls are.  I love the breed – very affectionate dogs.  Duke, who walked halfway across the state of New York with me (mostly off-leash), was one of my favorites.  Casey was of course my first pit love.  Tammy, was a beautiful little sweetheart, that loved me to death.  She would climb onto my lap to act as an airbag (if I let her, which of course I didn’t), as if to say, if you go, I do to.  And then there are Peaches and Brownie, two other pit bulls that I used to walk regularly.   William and Gordo, the pitbull puppies picked up on the side of the interstate…  The abandoned litters I’ve raised… These were the pure pits, and there were in addition, lots of mixed dogs, too, part pits.  Prince, Michaela, Macey, Scottie (maybe…).
