Have you seen me lately?

Have you seen me when you walk down the street? When you moved your hand away because I tried to sniff it? You see, I have no home, and no one to love me. You looked friendly and I felt safe when our eyes met even for just a moment, but I guess you just  didn’t want to see, you looked away, was it because I am a Pit Bull?.

Have you seen all the dogs, cats,and critters, all waiting for their chance at the elusive “forever home”. My first owner( I hate that word!), said he would take care of me forever, but I got sick, and needed shots and food, his time, and his love, but I became a Burden. When we walked in, I thought he forgot something in the truck, but he got in and drove away and never even looked back at me! What did I do? I guess he just didn’t see all the love I had for him. Was it because I am a Pit Bull?

Many of us never know what a” Forever Home” is. However we become very accustomed to hunger, sickness, loneliness, fear, cold and all to often death. Some end up in shelters where lots of people come by but they all want Puppies, not dogs. In the end we die alone not truly knowing, love comfort, a pat on the head every night or a cuddle in your bed. Why is it they turn their heads when they walk by? They never look at me, are they are scared of me?  Why? I try my best to show them my “Wiggle Butt!”  Why don’t they see? Is it because I am a Pit Bull?

Have you seen me? When you know in your heart what your neighbour does with his dogs in his big back yard is wrong! and yet you do not help, instead you turn your music or your TV up and try to block out the sound, That sound! I hate the sound of other dogs barking menacingly like that! I remember all to well what that sound means for dogs like me, why don’t you see? Even when it gets so bad you watch him put big plastic bags in his truck and drive away, he never brings those bags back. Where does he take those anyway? Still you pretend not to see? I don’t understand some humans! Why do they hate Pitbulls so much? when will they see?

My name is…, oh right I don’t have a name, I used to be called “HEY!” what ever that means, I was a bait dog, but I got so scared of the other dogs I tried to run away, I was caught by this horrible man, he beat me and tied me up, but I am a survivor! I got away!

Now, I just sit here, every day waiting for someone to come, to see, to see me and the love I have. The worth I have inside me, my basic value of a life. Have you seen me lately?

What? Wait, that was a look! She’s coming this way! She will turn away, she will not see me, they never see me! I am a Pit Bull and I have no home. OH! “Wiggle Butt, Wiggle Butt!” She is coming right this way, she’s even looking right at me and smiling, she will see me!

Ahhh! a pat and a scratch, in just the right spot! Food! I love food! She wants me to come, OK!

 This is a nice car! It is warm in here! Better than outside! Winter is coming, I know it’s coming when I can see my own breath!  I hate winter!

A house! She wants me to come inside! YEAH! “Wiggle Butt, Wiggle Butt!” She wants me to stay? She just gave me something called a “Bath” I liked it!

A shiny pink bowl! Is this what love feels like? If so I like it!

She keeps saying something I do not know, I don’t know what a “Vet” is but it sounds like fun!  She saw me! She saw me! I am not invisible to her! I am a Pit Bull!  She even gave me a name! She calls me Cali! I like it! She says it’s because I am golden like the California sunrise!

I was seen today! Who have you seen lately?

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
