    My Best Friend Twinkie ❤

    It had been one year since my dad had died and on his birthday my family and I decided to go to the shelter to get me a dog. I was excited because I've always loved dogs and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. I walked down all the rows looking at each dog trying to...

    Spending most of my time

    and money on spreading awareness on the real effects of BSL and dogfighting doesn't bother me at all. All seven of my rescue dogs have come from bad situations ranging from neglect to being in the dogfighting ring, and all of them are well behaved and loving. People will tell...

    The Hot Dog Test And Some Sappy Stuff

    Well my puppy graduated from puppy training class. He is a golden retriever. If any of you have one you know how crazy mad they are about food. His final test was kinda simple but, of all the dogs in the class, mine was going to have the toughest time. The instructor came over...

    Oh gosh. Today was a messy day.

    Bruno, being the wonderfully long haired dog he is, barreled into a burdock bush. It was so muddy since almost all the snow is melted now so that didn't help at all. I ended up having to sit in the mud with him and pull them off. I wanted to take him inside to pull them off but...

    I have actually two dogs,

    they are both Golden Retrievers. They are the most awesome, funny, cute, loving, little balls of joy. They have helped me through many things in life. Baileys 4 months old and Daisys 1yr 5months. Daisy is the darker one in the picture. Just thought I'd share some cuteness today...

    This is Viktor. An American Bully,

    rescued from a backyard breeder/dogfighting ring. Because of his bad breeding, he has hip dysplasia and a heart murmur. But my other dogs and I love him even though he can't play like the others. :)

    This Could Only Happen To Me

    My son calls this "the funniest thing he will ever see in his whole life". Of course, it is something stupid I did. My 2-yr old, 100 lb "puppy" has developed a nasty habit of running between people's legs as they descend the stairs from our second floor to the first floor. He...

    My Dog Saved My Life

    Wyatt is a medium sized dog.  He is a black and white mixed breed.  I adopted him from a shelter when he was a puppy.  Groomers and vets have told me they suspect he is part schnauzer and part terrier.  He loves to eat any kind of food that comes from a noisy...

    I took one of my dogs to the park earlier today,

    and someone with her golden retriever (who was growling at my dog) told me to, "Get that vicious beast out of the park before it kills someone". What a sad and uneducated world we live in.

    Well, because I have no self control.

    .. I adopted another pitbull today. She's only 3 months old and was found in a crate in someone's basement with two other puppies who didn't make it to the vet. I'm so excited to finally have another rescue puppy. :)

    Yesterday we went for 2 walks.

    2 miles each time. I got up this morning and neither one of the dogs wanted to get out of bed. Guess they're a little out of shape from being cooped up during the winter. I love when they're tired though. They're extra cuddly.

    American Pit Bull Terrier. He was found under a porch of an abandoned house with a cable tie as a makeshift collar and a 35 pound chain attached to that. He was on the waiting list to be put down because the shelter had labeled him "unfit for adoption" because he bit the animal...

    I actually have six dogs.

    :) All chihuahua mixes, well except for two. Princess is my oldest dog and I love her. She came to my backyard with another dog when I was 10. She left but then came back. She was probably abused by her other owners. I'm 20 now and she's still with me. We've had her for 10yrs...
