I know, I know I have been MIA for some time now…

Well gang this has been a crazy year, I have completed my dog training coarse, and I am now certified. I am finishing odd another coarse now so that’s why I haven’t been as devoted here.

Last week I got word that a fellow rescuer friend of mine has fallen on hard times, she did a wonderful YouTube video a few years back that I would love to re share now:

Pit bulls – you can be a voice for the voiceless

I am sending out an urgent call to arms on Kym’s behalf, she lost her job a while back and has now lost her home, the home she shares with her two rescued pit bulls Max and Sam, who have a Facebook page Max and Sam we are emma shay’s legacy (https://www.facebook.com/weareemmashayslegacy?fref=ts)  if you want to show them some love.

Kym has worked tirelessly over the years for pit bulls, fighting BSL, and working in rescue, she has given of herself so freely and with an open heart, I have set up a fund-raiser for her in hopes she can secure a new home and to  get set up. Any left over money will go to rescue, shelter aid and care, because that’s Kym, she’s always thinking about ways to pay it forward!  Watching her go through this has been very hard, seeing bad things happen to good people really angers me!

The fund-raiser can be found here:

Helping a rescuer keep her pit bull family together

My sincere wish is to help a wonderful lady, a bank account specifically for her fund-raiser will be opened on Monday and I will update that for those who wish to verify where their donations are going.

Please any fellow rescuers, pit bull owners, advocates, please share the links so we can get help for Kym and her crew as we can, and please if you can donate!

Thank you everyone for hanging in there while I completed my training, thanks for sharing my posts and for standing up for pit bulls and abused and neglected dogs everywhere!

Max and Sam We are Emma Shay’s Legacy, it’s a wonderful new Facebook page by my amazing sister from another mister!

If you love pit bull pages on Facebook than you are going to love this one!

This page was created by a woman I was very fortunate to meet, my friend Kym, who works tirelessly to help pit bulls and other adaptable dogs.

She is an advocate for responsible pet guardians, she fights to stomp out BSL, and end animal cruelty! How cool is she???

She is a real inspiration to me personally and to many others as well. Please feel free to tell your friends to like and share her page, and if you pop by remember to do that same!

NO HATERS PLEASE, lions don’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.

Kym..,1185536_475137882596335_1634567378_n thank you for all you do, for all the ways you create change and for giving me the chance to meet and get to know a kindred spirit! It’s us, the pups and the minions to the end!

I’m back, where I’ve been and what’s up next

28748_166911366782736_147438333_nHi gang!

I have not been posting in a while, mostly because of my dog training course.

I am in the last phase of the program and I have been very busy getting ready for my final, I am looking for some rescues to help me out with an essay I am writing so I am hoping that I get some responses.

I need three shelters or rescues willing to be interviewed by phone I need to know the percentages of dogs relinquished, the reasons why they were relinquished, the percentages  of dogs adopted and percentages of dogs euthanized, and why.

rehabilitation training to prevent dogs from losing potential homes, and training to make homeless dogs more adoptable

Also the numbers and reasons why dogs are returned after adoption.

My goal as a trainer is to keep dogs out of the shelters and to stop euthanizations due to a lack of training, and also to help people to understand how important proper training is and why it should be part of every responsible owners priority and gift to their pets success as a member of our society.

If anyone knows of shelters and rescues interested in helping me out with this please send me an email at apitomesblog@shaw.ca and please include the shelter or rescue name and address, contact persons name, title and phone number.

Remember folks keeping animals safe and out of the shelter systems is or should be a primary goal.

Thank you to everyone that visits my blog, comments, and shares their own experiences, without you all this would all be for nothing! It’s you that have helped me help them, so again thank you very much! I appreciate it deeply!

After graduation I look forward to sharing many things with you all, and getting back to what I love, helping dogs in need and tending to my blog! I am hoping to include some free basic training videos for you all to share and enjoy.

Just a couple of words and visuals for Nike and Subway to consider.

We all know BET could care less they have decided to lay down with a dog killer for two simple reasons;

1) Michael Vick is African-American, and don’t try to tell me I’m wrong here, would they have had any interest in him at all if he wasn’t?

2) Mr. Death, ooops, I mean Vick represents a boat load of cash for them!

So here you are Subway and Nike, enjoy! Enjoy knowing you are sell-outs and cowards, just like all the others who line up to shake hands with the devil. I hope you can all sleep well knowing you have sided with a felon and a dog killer!

As far as this last image goes, never forget and DO NOT fool yourself, Michael Vick did this to many of the dogs on his property, and much, much, worse!

That is the man they have chosen to be their “Spokesman” and or “Sportsman Award Winner!” They’ve got themselves a real Icon there ladies and gentlemen! Do you want your kids looking up to that? Just curious.

Nike and Vick in bed together once again….,Nike did you miss the memo? He’s a FELON!

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6730833

This is a shining example of the money machine at work, and how the victims so easily become forgotten! I have never wished Ill on a single person as much as I do this pile of puke!

 I secretly keep hoping Vick will break his leg and never be able to play again, so we can see it is truly all about the money! So we can go one day without hearing a felon be hailed as a “hero” or a “sportsman” He is filth, he is trash that needs to be taken to the curb!

and for the reporter to say he deserves this…, did she smoke crack before that broadcast? He deserves this? In my opinion he “deserves to be six feet under!

Look which breed was just featured in an Old Navy ad….

I have always loved Old Navy, but now, maybe just a little bit more!

Thanks Old Navy for seeing past the lies and myths and celebrating the best dogs ever!
