Funny how some people have no idea how to treat dogs (see post about Michael Vick) and then there's others who show how wonderful a bond between mankind and the animal kingdom can be...

Now, these are my peeps :)

Dog Breeds

It's interesting how people get attached to different breeds of dogs. I suppose there are many reasons for it - some of them good, solid reasons (the right temperament for the owner, kid friendly), some of them - not so much (wanting the same dog as Paris Hilton, comes to mind).

I have a friend who loves Irish Wolfhounds - in fact, I have two friends who love Irish Wolfhounds but, right now I'm talking about MC who just got a puppy. A puppy that is 105 pounds at a little over six months old.This is a picture of Hudson at four months when he only weighed 53 pounds.

Because they are a rarer breed (unlike some, ahem, other dogs we could name if they weren't sitting next to us), MC drove a round trip total of 1200 miles - solo - to pick up a male pup. The breeder put the four male pups of the litter into an enclosed area and asked MC "If you were able to pick from these four, which one would it be?" She said they were all so cute...running around, playing with sticks, an old carpet, jumping on each other, chasing each other and then one stopped, turned around, looked her right in the eyes and she fell in love...and named him Hudson.

Michael Vick

I haven't written in so long - working full time, moved, non-profit work, writing a book, etc., but - Michael Vick has made me feel like I have to do what little I can to stand up for pits.

The best I can do right now is point you to some of the pit bull sites Honey and I like and see how they have been responding:

Smilin' Pit Bull Rescue ( has a page where they link to the Humane Society of the United States's petition against Vick, some very nice T-shirts and great photos throughout the site, as always (like the photo below).

Jigga and Venus (very cute pups!) mention some Cafe Press stuff you can buy to show your anti-Vick stance.

The Poodle and dog blog have a good Michael Vick cartoon (and lots of other weird, funny, unusual, interesting dog news.)

And, then, of course, this has also meant discovering a new site. KC Dog Blog has a great round-up of articles.
