Make no mistake, you are


Make no mistake, you are about to be inducted into an elite circle.  The hazing will involve lots of lickings, a few rounds of tug-o-war, LOTS of walking, a little bit of crying because somebody ate your dessert or one of your favorite shoes, and lots of laughing because that somebody is now so sorry she’s ready to cheer you up by stealing your seat on the couch!  You may be able to avoid the chewing part, but the rest, it’s inevitable (even if she doesn’t need to cheer you up, she’ll still steal your spot on the couch.)  If you pass the test, you will be a proud owner of a Pit Bull Terrier and you will never be able to go back to life as it was before.  There are no stereotypes here, we all have one thing in common, a soft spot for the underdog, pardon the expression.  As an elementary school teacher, I have started enjoying the crazy looks I get when I say I have a pit at home, with my kids.  I take each look and put it away because I’ve decided they are looks of admiration because I had the courage to ignore what “everybody” says and make my own decision about the breed.  Grow a thick skin, people are agressive, and take time every day to enjoy the dog that somebody else threw away. Best of luck.  Look forward to stories of the new addition. 🙂
