Hey y’all. The “National Kill a Pit Bull Day” hoax is making the rounds again, getting people outraged but also giving people ideas. The hoax was disproved last year.

However, since the idea is out there, and there are horrible people in the world, take sensible precautions for your pets, but do…

On the other hand, some rescues refuse to do adoptions a week before Halloween. I wonder why that is…..

Even if it IS a hoax, it is based on real life incidents, and I for one would much rather be cautious than have something horrible happen to my furbabies.

Halloween aside, it is becoming more common for people involved in dog fighting rings to abduct pets to use as bait. So please, always supervise your dog when they are in your backyard. Never leave your dog alone in the car or tied up outside of a store. If you let your dog off leash, make sure that your dog will come when called (my friend’s dog was abducted because he was following a man who was calling him). And be aware of suspicious persons or vehicles in your area. Let them see that you are watching them…. that you will be able to give a good description of them should a crime occur. Even take a photo of them and/or their car. They will less likely to go through with the crime if they know their chances of being caught are higher.

Good points and precautions to make regardless of the day or night :]

However, since the idea is out there, and there are horrible people in the world, take sensible precautions for your pets, but do your part to keep the hoax from becoming sensationalized again. It risks causing more problems then solving them.

In addition, no matter how much you disagree with BSL and those who advocate it, Terry Jordan did not try organizing such an event and he and his family do not deserve the onslaught of hate and threats they received last year, certainly not for a second time.

Your pups still needs to get out, and acting fearful and nervous could make your pups fearful and nervous.

Speaking of celebrities kissing pibbles, have you seen Tom Hardy’s new lover Zora? (source) Here’s the synopsis on their new film The Drop

This film takes an inside look at organized crime’s use of local New York City bars as money-laundering ‘drops’. When lonely Brooklyn bartender Bob Saginowski uncovers a drop of a different sort in the form of a battered pit bull puppy that he rescues from certain death, he comes into contact with Nadia, a mysterious woman hiding a dark past.

Update: Sadly, Almond’s tail was amputated this past Thursday. He’s in good spirits, though, the same ol’ loveable and charming dude he’s always been. Just with a (temporary) frankenbutt.

FOSTER PLEA! Save this boy’s tail!

This is Almond. He’s a good pal of mine and needs out of the shelter ASAP if he’s to keep his pretty lil’ tail. He has a bad case of “happy tail” that won’t heal up and it will have to be amputated if he can’t get out of the shelter!

Almond is a sweet boy who is possibly already house trained, but would learn quickly if he isn’t there quite yet. He’d be best as the only pet. He’s good with kids who aren’t so small he’d knock them down with his enthusiastic kisses! He’s survived parvo to boot. Almond also has a good obedience foundation. And I know firsthand that he makes a great office dog!

To foster this boy, check out APA!’s foster page here.

Pit bulls have long been popular family pets, noted for their affection and loyalty, but you don’t hear much about gentle, loving pit bulls in the media because a well-behaved dog doesn’t make headlines.

"Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution" is a series dedicated to the dogs grouped under the name of pit bulls (the pit bull breed actually does not exist). I wished to portray this misunderstood group in a different light.
