Redbull, because he is “THE” funniest American Bulldog eva!

You have to see this big boy! funniest dog snuffle I have ever heard!


A new week, a new excerp from my life.

Where to start,  well lets start with my affinity for dogs, I guess I love dogs as much as I do because they are the only companion you will ever have, that wants to please you more than you will ever please them.

They are more loyal than your best friend, they will put themselves in front of you, to shield you from harm, and they are incapable of a lie, you know when you are looking into your dogs eyes that the emotion there is absolutely 100% truth.

I have always, and to the core of my being, hated anyone that is capable of hurting a dog, or any animal for that matter.

To me, I believe that we…, meaning (all creatures great and small) feel love, hate, pain, fear, sorrow, and loss. How anyone can intentionally inflict pain on our fellow creatures, just blows my mind! To continue…….,

One day I was walking home from work, and I passed by my local park, I loved that park it was cool in the heat of summer, and it had a warm feeling to it in winter, like a familiar friend wrapping a blanket over your shoulders. Weird I know but I grew up there so it was special in that way. It was cozy.

I digress, as I am cutting through the back of the park I hear these blood curdling yelps coming from the far field, so I rounded the old school building, to see what the heel was going on. Now in all honesty I thought that it was the neighbours dog, he used to get his head stuck in their fence because he just had to stick his head through it at least once a day, or so they told me, I assumed so he could say a quick friendly hello to whom ever had been passing by.

Not today, this day it would be a man, roughly about 6Ft tall give or take, a big guy by my standards, keep i mind I’m only 5 ft 1 1/2 inches tall, so anyone bigger than a toddler looks big to me, but that’s a story for another time!

This ape, is standing over a pitbull puppy maybe 5-6 months old beating this poor thing, with the buckle end of it’s own leash. Screaming at this dog, who by now is on it’s back wriggling like a worm in a BBQ pit. So I get up behind him, jerk the leash from his hands and start strapping him on the backs of his knee’s with it! true story! I will be the first to admit two things; First, it is never a good idea to attack a stranger, especially ones that could knock down the Chrysler building with a hard cough.

Two, unless you are sure you can beat them do not, I repeat do not start an altercation with an insane person. Well, as I am beating this goober within an inch of his pathetic excuse for a life, all the while shouting at him telling him a colossal pile of dung I think he is, he starts screaming “But it’s my dog! it’s My dog! I can hit him if I want to!” This statement would have infuriated some people into greater heights of belt whipping bliss, but I chose to leash up the dog and walk away, (Turning your back on an insane person is also not a good idea!) Caveman Larry there says “I’m calling the police on you, you psycho bitch!” So I returned fire with “That’s great!”  “Thanks!” “I’ll be sure to let them know everything that happened here today, and I’ll ask them to forward the SPCA’s investigations unit your name and address have a nice day!”

So I proceeded to take my newly acquired waif home with me, well no one ever came by and I did give my little friend to a rescue group, for placement in a forever home. she was with me for a bout a week and she was just the sweetest dog ever! I wanted to keep her so bad i could taste it, but I knew at that time in my life that would not have given her a better environment to be in. Although I would have never hurt her physically, I was not home much at that point in my life I was young and a social butterfly, and loneliness is just as bad as abuse, loneliness is neglect. I was not ready, and I knew it, deep down, I knew she needed better, knew she needed and deserved more!

Saba, (As she was later named)  did find her home with a young family, as I understand it she lived out a long and healthy life with them.

So I guess the moral of this is, never be afraid to act, sometimes it takes brave actions to save a life. Just do so in a safe way, one that does not put you in harm’s way.

Do I regret saving Saba? No! obviously no! but I do sometimes look back and think “Man! “Was I ever lucky that dude didn’t knock my cement head right off my little body!”  Then I throw up in my mouth just a little! Mainly because of  the thought that Caveman Larry probably went on to breed! GROSS!

You gotta feel sorry for those kids!

PETA, an animals best friend or worst nightmare?

I find myself scrutinizing PETA, and Ingrid Newkirk in particular,  for many reasons, most based around when the Michael Vick dogs were in the news. Why you may ask? Well just to name one, they plastered posters and held up banners of “Support” for those dogs, when Vick was on trial, mostly to whore themselves out to the media! Did you know that, when they were asked to help, their stance was; that they could do nothing for these dogs, and in the interest of public safety they believed the dogs should be put down. Now correct me if I’m wrong here but should they not have helped to have the dogs evaluated individually before jumping the gun on that one? should they not do more in general for those dogs as well as abandoned animals everywhere? Well here’s a statistic for you 95% of the animals PETA gets, are refered for euthanization. Does that sound like an animal rights/welfare group worth supporting? PETA has become big business you see, Ingrid Newkirk started this organization supposedly with the intent of saving animals, when in actuality they do only a fraction of what they could. A fraction of what they lead you to believe they do. The money you donate goes to lobbyists, and if history has shown us anything, that means there is a bigger agenda at work here, (What that truly is, is anyones guess at this point, only time will tell.) Does Ingrid wear very nice tailored clothing? Yes! Does Ingrid live in a very posh house? Yes! Does Ingrid have a nice fat bank account? I will wager a guess that the answer is YES! which would account for where you donations really go, at least in part! So the supporters of PETA will have to forgive me, but the next time they want to hold up a sign maybe it should be this one,Just so you are not left feeling as though all organized animal aid and or rights groups are all bad they aren’t, but before you do choose to Donate please do some research through the freedom of information act and anywhere else you can find and find out where the money goes, do they really do what they claim, and exactly how legitimate they are! The opinion expressed is solely mine, and should be taken as such, but the facts don’t lie, I sure didn’t see any PETA trucks lined up to help all those Vick pitbulls they felt “so sorry for” did you?  For further information on their practices and tactics google PETA is bad, or PETA lies, also check out these sites http:/www.petakillsanimals.com/ and http:activistcash.com and also http:www.humanewatch.org There is alot of interesting info to digest.  Judge for yourself, but I am a firm believer that this woman and all those like her, want celebrity and money more than they want to help! I think they enjoy this limelight they have cast themseves into. You can say that PETA has decreased the number of people that use and buy fur, but here’s a little tid bit for you, the carbon footprint left behind from synthetic furs rivals that of any other plastics, keep in mind “Faux Fur” is simply plastic and fabrics woven together. Personally I do not object to animals raised for food and or fur sales as long as the animals are treated correctly and not abused. I must admit that, in most cases, they are not. All is not dark though, not all farms mistreat their animals, in fact many are seeing the benefits of having “happy” animals raised for food and or fur sales, the meat tastes better, the eggs are larger and stronger the fur is more supple and has a greater sheen, due to the animals not being over stressed, So there are ethical options. Myself I do eat meat and I don’t object to fur, my theory is if you are willing to eat a mink steak, by all means buy a mink coat, if you are not, don’t! I am not willing to eat mink, so I do not buy the coat. I am willing to eat beef, chicken, pork and fish and would use any products made from them so there is less waste, if we have to raise them for food and clothing we should at the very least be responsible and respectful about the sacrifice.  If an animal’s physical and mental well being has been seen to, than I see it as a circle of life moment, do you think a lion feels bad for the antelope? probably not. I feel like I am playing god a bit but, the fact is I have to eat, and I happen to eat meat, but I also do a lot of research on where my meats and dairy com from, I love the internet!  Now it is up to you to decide.


Excerpt: “The Lost Dogs” by Jim Gorant from CBS.

 

(CBS) 
Introduction:
An article I wrote about the Michael Vick dogs appeared on the cover of the December 29th, 2008, issue of Sports Illustrated. In the weeks after, the magazine received almost 488 letters and emails about the story and the dog pictured on the cover, the most we got in response to any issue for that entire year. By an overwhelming majority the letters were supportive, but there were some detractors.
My greatest fear was a flood of complaints from people with friends or loved ones that had been injured or lost to pit bull attacks, but there were remarkably few of those. Most of the complainers fell into two groups. The first: What does this have to do with sports? A fair question, if you take the narrowest view of the subject-if all you want from your subscription is games and players and straight up analysis-then that’s a legitimate gripe. I would argue, however, that what defines Sports Illustrated and has set it apart for more than 50 years are well-told stories that attempt to put sports into a larger perspective, to offer a deeper and broader view of how the people and events in question reflect and contribute to the larger social and moral make-up of our society. To each is own, I suppose.
The second complaint was more troubling. In its simplest incarnation it usually went something like this: Why does it matter, they’re just dogs? The more verbose in this camp might elaborate: People are dying and starving every day and we’ve got bigger problems. No one cares if you kill cows or chickens or hunt deer. What’s different about dogs?
What is different about dogs? I had not directly addressed the question in the article. On some level it seemed obvious to me, but at the same time I couldn’t put a satisfying answer to words. As I started work on this book, the question hung over my head. As I was interviewing experts, reading books on canine history and behavior, touring shelters and talking to dog lovers, I processed a lot of the information through the prism of that question.
The answer, cobbled together from all those readings and conversations, took me back to the beginning. Men first domesticated dogs more than 10,000 years ago, when our ancestors were hunting for their meals and sleeping next to open fires at night. Dogs were instant helpers in our struggle for survival. They guarded us in the dark and helped us find food by day. We offered them something too, scraps of food, some measure of protection, the heat of the flames. In an article about the origin of dogs that ran in the New York Times in early 2010, one expert on dog genetics theorized that, “dogs could have been the sentries that let hunter gatherers settle without fear of surprise attack. They may also have been the first major item of inherited wealth, preceding cattle, and so could have laid the foundations for the gradations of wealth and social hierarchy that differentiated settled groups from their hunter-gatherer predecessors.”
Certainly, as man rose in the world, dogs came with us, perhaps even aiding the advance. They continued to guard us and help with hunting, but they did more. They marched with armies into war, they worked by our sides, hauling, pulling, herding, retrieving. We manipulated their genetic makeup to suit our purposes, cross breeding types to create animals that could kill the rats infecting our cities or search for those lost in the snow or the woods.
In return we brought them into our homes, made them part of our families. We offered them love and companionship and they returned the gesture. From the start it was a compact: You do this for us and we’ll do that for you.
Our relationship with dogs has always been different than it has been with livestock or wildlife. The only other animal that comes close is the horse, which has undoubtedly been a partner in our evolution and a companion. But a horse can’t curl up at the bottom of your bed at night, and it can’t come up and lick your face when you’re feeling down. Dogs have that ability to sense what we’re feeling and commiserate. There’s a reason they’re called man’s best friend.
As for why our bond with them matters, there are reasons for that, too. If you hang around animal activists for a while you’ll inevitably hear repeated a famous Gandhi quote: “THE GREATNESS OF A NATION AND ITS MORAL PROGRESS CAN BE JUDGED BY THE WAY ITS ANIMALS ARE TREATED.” The idea being that in order to lift the whole of society, you must first prop up the lowest among its many parts. If you show good will and kindness toward those who cannot stand up for themselves, you set a tone of compassion and good will that permeates all.
To this day, I believe Donna Reynolds, one of the founders of Bad Rap, a rescue organization at the center of the Vick case, said it best. “Vick showed the worst of us, our bloodlust, but this showed the best. I don’t think any of us thought it was possible-the government, the rescuers, the people involved. We like to think we have life figured out, and it’s nice that it can still surprise us, that sometimes we can accomplish things we had only dreamed of. We’ve moved our evolution forward. Just a little bit, but we have, and I’m happy to have been a part of that.”
I’m happy to have witnessed the effort and told the story.

Pitbull Haters At Their Finest! Hilarious!

The video speaks for its self! 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zj7ycSDFh2w

A couple friends and I were having fun with xtranormal.com makin videos this one is not mine.

Thanks Chris! you are an inspiration to all those that can’t understand dogsbite or the haters that support that garbage!


Why “Burger King” is now off my chowline list!

shared from The Stubbydog Project and youtube: If you’d like to contact Burger King to let them know that this commercial is in poor taste and you won’t stand for it, here’s the contact information for the North American division:
Susan Robison, Miguel Piedra, Michelle Miguelez and Denise Wilson – Phone: (305) 378-7277,… E-mail: mediainquiries@whopper.com and Burger King Corporation…, 5505 Blue Lagoon Drive, Miami, FL 33126See More Ban this Burger King Commercial!!!! www.youtube.com

Some have suggested that the ad from Burger King is”Freedom Of Expression”  well “Freedom Of Expression” has been taken over by pimps and whored out into nothingness, our fore fathers DID NOT fight and die for that! they fought and died so all people could speak freely without tyranny and oppression, to speak out against injustice without fear of reprocussions! not so some stupid burger co. or any other marketing genius’s for that matter could trod on the reputaions of others and yes that includes animals, especially when speaking badly of them ultimately ends with their euthanizations, or fear mongering! Sorry but I am sick of people doing and saying really crappy things but shielding it under the “freedom of expression” umbrella!
I DO NOT SUPPORT THAT!


Michael Vick Then and Now.

Anyone not living in a cave 2007/2008 will remember the story of Michael Vick. Many people have said that he has paid his debt to society and should be allowed to move on. Well for those individuals I will say this, in my book, paying a debt to society, means a lot more than sitting on your ass in jail crying the blues to any fellow inmate that will listen. Lets keep in mind, to most of the prison population he is a sports hero, so I don’t imagine that life was all that hard for dear Mr. Vick, but that’s just my opinion. As I understand the facts, Vick was convicted of, and did time for, federal charges of bankrolling a dog fighting operation. Later, in the fall of 2008, he pled guilty to one count of dog fighting which made him eligible for a reduced jail sentence. He has never pled guilty to charges of animal abuse and has never served time for cruelty to or killing animals. Thanks (Pitbulls are not bad dogs the just have bad owners 2) for the info, anyone should feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Now lets review shall we, he got caught, was charged, did not own up to all he had done, instead opted for a plea agreement, which got him reduced time, well that sure sounds like paying a debt to me! How about you? How soon we forget! here is a charming photo of the boy wonder himself. 

 In happier times I’m sure. Back when he was making big bucks off hurling a pig skin and off the blood, sweat, torture, abuse, and death of this noble breed. So still think he’s a “Hero?” Here are some images of the destruction he left in the wake of his quest for even more cash, like he didn’t get enough from being a “Sports Hero!” I will add that these images (some) not all are Michael Vick dogs the point is to show the results of dog fighting, and baiting, however if we dug deep enough on his case this is the type of thing you would find, I’m sure. (again just an opinion).

 Do you think a hero does that? I don’t! This (Ahem!) man was making millions! Being a member of the NFL is a privilege not a right! He should have been refused the right to return, and the same should go for any sports figure that breaks the law! Privilege revoked! Some have been charged with violent acts, drugs, gang affiliations etc., I repeat they should never have been allowed to return! But they did! and Why? For the simple reason that they represent millions to very influential people. The same people that bankroll his sports career, his “Project” and Pros VS Joes I’m sure, once again for legalities, (just an opinion) The average working man in a blue-collar job, if caught in an indiscretion, *sometimes there are even behavioral clauses in their employment agreements* will be fired. An yet he this “Hero” to some was not!  Below you will see a photo of a Pitbull, this is how a pitbull is supposed to look:

Happy, as if they are smiling, head up, tail wagging, secure! not crouched down, belly on the floor, tail tucked in with a look on their faces like they are about to be slapped! BET and SPIKE networks should both be ashamed of themselves! To give any credence to him as a “great athlete” or a hero to many (including children), disgusts me to the point of literally feeling sick! No one is saying he should not be allowed to move on with this life, what I am saying is why was he allowed to simply pick up where he left off? This turd crawled his way out of obscurity, to stardom, only to piss in the faces of the people who gave him the chances and the opportunity for something more, and yet here he is forgiven, on “The Michael Vick Project” talking as though he had read a script, not from the heart, not meaning one single solitary word, He is not sorry, he is only sorry he got caught! Then we go to “Pro’s VS Joes” where he acts like a king among men, for all those adoring fans! (Barf). Is abuse, torture and the murder of innocent life, all of a sudden OK because it is a dog? Obviously it isn’t! Do dogs not have the capacity to feel pain? obviously they do! One cannot distance themselves by saying “They” had no idea or control over what was going on there. Please! If anyone believes that, than you are truly living in the dark, why not move to a cave and call it a day. I realize you may think I have strong opinions on this, I do, not doubt! Michael Vick and every filthy low life, cowardly dog fighter out there, are the main reasons why these dogs have become loathed and feared, instead of embraced and loved! A man that wants to feel  “Macho” should do this, Not this,  I am now, and always will be a stead fast supporter of this breed, and someone striving to get them back to being an icon for loyalty and bravery! If you take anything away from this article, take this…, Educate yourself, read all you can on the breed and decide for yourself before you agree to BSL, stand up and be counted ask for the right laws, just laws, laws that are fair not discriminatory, or ones that basically support canine genocide. Thank you for listening.
