Photo Time!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOUR PIT BULL PICS!!!

We would love to feature your pit bull photos, I am hoping to take another stab at doing a weekly featured pit, our only request is, no photos of dogs on chains, and if you are looking to show off how tough your pit bull looks, please try Facebook or MySpace instead. Other than that, we welcome all breeds, pure breds, mixes, rescues and their people! the goal here is to pump photos out into the mainstream that educate, that show happy, healthy dogs!

Let’s get their reputation and their image back. I am sick of seeing nothing but snarling, and or fighting photos all over the net, lets show the world the real pit bull! Please send your photos to apitomesblog@shaw.ca please be sure to include some details about your dog.

All photos WILL be posted, and once a week, if I get enough I will post the “Bark Out Dog Of The Week” every friday, so please share this with your friends and ask them to send it to any friends that have pit bulls as well, lets show places like Denver, Australia, and Belfast exactly what they are missing!

Bark out time for my Baylee she’s on Youtube!!!!

I must first explain the channel name, My Damn Dog…, Well my daughter and I were jokingly fighting over Baylee her first night with us, Noa said “Is she my dog?” and I said “No she’s my dog.” joking obviously. Well we got on a real role over who was going to own the worlds greatest pit bull! Translation: (It’s my damn dog! No, it’s my damn dog!) We love Baylee with all our hearts so no hate mail please 🙂 I joke a lot with my kids, I teach them that there’s many things about life you have to laugh at… including yourself!

We want to see This YouTube channel succeed, to bring the public around, to show them that pit bull’s really are just like any other dog, they are capable of all the same things, success and failure! It’s the guardian/parent that shapes the dog just as they would a child!

Thank you so much everyone your support since day one is very humbling to me, my family, and yes, even Baylee. You have helped me with every post, in changing the way the rest of the world looks at Pit Bulls, bully breeds, and even the breeds who just look like pit bulls, so on behalf of Baylee I will simply say, once again, Thank You Very Much! She went from a little starved dog slated to be euthanized, a dog that looked so beat down and pathetic, even I wasn’t really ready for some of the behaviours I saw in her, so scared, so timid and untrusting of what may come next, to a dog that will not be brought down! She’s a star! She has come a long way, and still has a way to go, but she is changing everyday, becoming what I affectionately call “My Little Barnacle” Here are some pictures of Baylee the first ones are how she looked when we got her, the others are as she is today.

Love that dog!

Here are her first two YouTube videos please enjoy, like, share, comment, subscribe to the :MyDamnDog channel!

Send us video ideas, things you’d like to see. Eventually we will be doing reviews on dog food and dog related products.

We want the world to see how funny life with a pit bull can be, most of all we want to share our funny videos of the little pit bull that could with all of you!

Sorry for the language in the lyrics but if you get past that…., it’s the best pro pit bull video of all time!

The Great American Pit Bull Terrier!

Nuff said!

Haters, you just go on and keep hating! I feel for you, you will never know what having a best friend, a loyal companion, a protector til death is really all about!

I love Total Dog!

This was a great article for those on the fence over which dog poses the biggest risk to society and other animals. Thanks Total Dog Magazine, I am sending a huge bark out just for you!

and the most dangerous dog is….

Finally a little truth is spoken, breed absolutely does not play a factor in whether or not a dog will bite. It’s time for people to wake up a tad, and see that it all starts and ends with the human. How do you train, raise, feed, and love your dog? That is key!

Remember that the next time you hear the media shout “Pit Bull” from the roof tops and don’t forget to ask did they check breed DNA or could this one be a ridgeback, or mastiff, or lab too!

Sheer dog awesomeness in a commercial!

The Bark Side 2012 Volkswagen commercial teaser

Everyone who has ever had to do any type of advertising at all knows, advert 101…, put dogs or kids in it and you’ve got gold baby!

enjoy and have a great day everybody!

PETA, PETA, PETA, Anything for a buck? You disgust me!

Todays unscrupulous website is: PETA! That’s right, my favorite sham of a animal welfare group! Now, don’t get me wrong, I am all for boycotting everything China at this point, Persoanlly I am not a fan of melamine laced foods, and fertilizer based vitamins, or fur that has been ripped and cut off of live animals without even the benefit of sedation, but take a gander at PETA’s page here and ask yourself this:

Is all that money really going to help these poor animals? How many lawyers and lobbyists in China has PETA hired to change laws? or is Ingrid Newkirk getting herself a new Bently this year? Pls think before you donate to a “Money Whore” organization like this. Do the research yourself, there are better ways to envoke change, real change!

Peta wants you cash for…., well not the animals in China that’s for sure!

I’m sorry but I have seen the clothes she wears, and the cars she rolls up to Hundred-Dollar a plate Peta benefits in. I do not believe for one minute a substantial amount of any “Donations” really gets there and really does anything to stop this crap!

So yet again I say…BUSTED Newkirk!

***Updated, sorry my editing on the first one was a bit off*** One for the haters!

Just a little pic for all the haters, the ones that can’t open their hearts and minds long enough to see the only thing evil about this picture, is that more pit bull and bully breed owners don’t share theirs, out of fear based bias! They don’t show that these are not ticking time bombs…, they are family! Stand up bully families! Stand up and be counted! It’s ok for someone to disagree with us, it’s ok if they are fearful of the unknown, it gives us all the chance to change minds and hearts and  nothing does that better than a pit kiss!

BayLee is pure joy! She loves everyone! Even the people who cross the street to get away from her, I guess they didn’t know its ok to pet a pit bull! I guess she didn’t know people can hate something just because of how it looks! I actually had a man at my daughters school say “She shouldn’t be here!”  So I said “Well since you are a bigot and a fear monger maybe you shouldn’t be here!” You pose a bigger danger to these kids than my dog ever could,  you teach unsubstantiated fear and hate!” That shut him up! Fortunately the principle loves my dog so there buddy!

This is what I am talking about…. a prime example of yet another Social networking site that takes no responsibility!

This little gem is on YouTube, many complaints have been sent and yet it is still up, still feeding the insatiable need for violence, to all those criminals! Thanks Youtube what a wonderful world you are helping to shape!

That garbage should be banned. It should have never been allowed to be posted in the first place, its against the law! This is not free speech, its animal abuse. YouTube GET IT TOGETHER! Take responsibility for what you allow and remove this crap from your site! You are no better than Facebook!

Dog fight, dog abuse, and where’s YouTube while we all complain????

***Urgent Update on Saving Snoopy!***

First off I want to thank each and everyone of you that took the time to speak up for Snoopy! not all Pit Bulls are as lucky as he is, and not all of them get a second chance at life! I just reiceived word that Snoopy is free!!!!!!! he is out of impound and going home with his daddy and its all because of people like you, so please never forget the importance of sharing and getting involved! you all had a hand in Saving Snoopy! THANK YOU FOR THAT! I will add the picture of Snoop going home!
 HOW GREAT IS THAT!
From a facebook animal lover Larisa Sharikin:
We have an EMERGENCY on our hands and we need all of the help we can get!! I have a friend that is in Florida that was walking his dog Snoopy. A woman was walking her dog at the same time and her little dog got away from her and bit Snoopy. Snoopy bit the dog back in defense and is now in a shelter and the state of Florida is deeming him a dangerous dog and wants to put him down. Snoopy’s 77 ye…ar old owner has appealed the case and the appeal is on the 25th of this month! We need an animal rights lawyer and as many people as possible to get involved to save Snoopy and return him to his senior owner! Hi Everyone. I went to check on Snoopy at Halifax Humane Society.First of all I want to say thank you for all people who called them. At first the staff did not know who Snoopy was or that he was actually there, so they wanted me to apologize for misinformation. Snoopy has a nice bed AND a blanket in his kennel. He looked fine..not marks on him at all. He does look scared and confused, he definitely wants OUT. What we need to do now is contact the City of Deltona people. The Humane Society is only holding him. I will get the contact info for who we need to contact and will post that.Halifax is a wonderful shelter. Yes, it is a kill shelter. But they are actively looking to become a no kill shelter.The staff is very caring and do a great job. The community is very involved with this shelter and there are many volunteers there that walk the dogs and such. The back room that I was taken through had tons of dog and cat food that people had donated. Every dog has bed and blanket and the kennels are very clean.So, I will now work on starting a Facebook Page for Snoopy and getting info to people. Please do not call the Humane Society since they are not involved in the outcome of this case. HERE IS ALL THE CONTACT INFORMATION. PLEASE CALL, WRITE AND FAX. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT THE CITY OF DELTONA HEARS OUR VOICES. PLEASE BE POLITE AND RESPECTFUL.:

Snoop…, hang in there buddy! You have people you don’t even know stepping up right now! To all those who have stepped up for a strangers dog, thank you! Larisa… You are an awesome lady! Thanks to you too for working to get the info out so quickly and for going to see snoopy, to make sure he was ok!
