I don’t watch TV, but here’s a noteworthy quote from Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan:
“In the 70’s they blamed the Dobermans, in the 80’s they blamed the German Shepherds, in the 90’s they blamed the Rottweilers, now they blame the Pitbulls. When are they going to start blaming the humans?”
…Mom and Dad had to go out late last night after Jamie was in bed. There were a few items left on the school supply sheet that they had to pick up. Mom was really tweaking out about leaving me out of the crate. She brought me up to Jamie’s room and showed me my bed (I have one in each bedroom) and even coaxed me up on to Jamie’s bed (!) where I enthusiastically dogsmooched Jamie’s face and looked out of the window. However, human beds are not for me and I jumped down quickly and walked Mom and Dad to the door. Upon their return, Mom was surprised and pleased to find me in an alert and attentive position, watching over Jamie like a sentry as he slept sprawled every which way on his bed. When I saw Mom I quickly rolled over into the belly-rub position, and she praised and petted me while I smiled and smiled, with eyes half-closed.
Pitbulls love a job to do. They don’t call us the “Nanny Breed” for nothing!
