The Dog of a Lifetime
O ver 17 years ago, my young boys asked me for a dog. I come from a long line of dog lovers. My Grandfather Frank (Red) Jones was a very well know Dog Breeder and trainer of Labrador Retrievers. His dog Pat was one of the first three dogs that distinguised themselves to establish the Ralston Purina Animal Hall of Fame. But, A PITBULL, no way. But I was talked into it with so many reasons given, they are a nice size, they are short haired, and the puppy of six weeks sure was cute. I named her Glory, she was a animal created by God, and I hoped she would indeed bring my God Glory, and she did in so many ways. Well, she passed away June 21st, 2006. Glory was the dog of a lifetime. She served four generations faithfully, taught us a lot about loyality, patience, kindness, and Love. She had no small inpact on any of us, we are all changed because of her. We kept one of her puppies. Cruiser was a magnificent beast, strong, huge for the average size of a pit, but he had her wonderful personality trait, he was a gentle giant. again we were lost when he too died just six months after his mom. I now don't buy into the media,sell that these dogs cannot be trusted and all should be destroyed.
