just unearthed this lovely little campaign from a shelter across the pond focusing on staffies (staffordshire bull terriers, but also bully breed dogs in general). agree with them on every point – but also wanted to add that staffies/bullies are a stubborn, strong-willed breed; while they do make amazing and loving family pets, they require commitment to consistent training and discipline. consider rescuing before purchasing if you’re considering adding any pet to your family!

puppies for breakfast.

jenga and i attended Puppies for Breakfast last weekend and had a blast!

i was surprised and impressed at how many breeds were represented… from dachshunds to german shepherds to cocker spaniels to large breed poodles and even some pointers, and i think i saw a finnish spitz! here are some of the belated pictures we (jenga gets credit for being my sometimes tripod quadripod) snapped, as promised – see the whole set on Flickr.

unspeakable cruelty.


Just heard this story on news radio and had to pull over to share it. These sub human beasts should be thrown into a pit of vipers.

How can this be protected by the First Amendment?! The First Amendment protects speech, NOT conduct. The Founding Fathers would be weeping if they knew one of the most important protections we have was used to shield these disgusting sadists. They should be charged with animal cruelty, obscenity, and whatever else can be thrown at them. What a frightening, heartbreaking absence of empathy.

If people can treat animals like this and not be deservedly punished, I shudder to think of how we are going to improve the general safety of our country when it comes to preventing violence and getting justice for the wronged. In light of the recent tragedies in Boston and West, TX, this is just another disheartening low.

Please read ahead with caution; not for the faint of heart.


my happy valentine.

Pit Bulls as Therapy Dogs – Today Show.

the Today Show’s segment on pit bulls being used as therapy dogs, as well as some misconceptions about the breed.

see the clip HERE.

“…every single dog is a product of their environment…”

starting to think jenga is a staffie…

…as in, staffordshire bull terrier, and not a pit bull.

jenga takes a vacation.

not that a dog ever really needs a vacation.

jenga went to the beach in galveston, texas a few weeks ago with me and my friends mandy, brenna, and seth. check out the trip in my Flickr set, “jenga goes to the beach“.
