Today features a pretty important event and I’d almost missed it! If it wasn’t for an email this morning with a post from I Still Want More Puppies, I’d still be in the dark. Which is a tragic thought. Who wants to miss out on Corbin’s Blogville Pitty Post Day? Who could pass up an excuse to go on about the wonderfully drooly pit bull?
Not I, that’s for sure.
Around these parts I know we all love pit bull type dogs. We adore their big, goofy square heads, their wiggly, sturdy bodies, and their giant, wet tongues. We are amazed by how resilient these dogs are and we admire their ability to open their hearts again and again – even when they aren’t always loved in return.
We also all know the stereotypes and the political rhetoric. We sign petitions and argue with people on buses and advocate as much as we can to end unfair legislation. We volunteer with rescues. We foster them in our homes. We display our pitty love on our t-shirts with pride.
We know how hard these dogs rock.
I like to think the world outside this tiny bubble of mine is starting to know it too.
When I tried to think of something fun to share today, I performed a Google search of “cute pit bull videos.” Guess how many hits this received?
That’s a lot of pitty adorableness. If there are almost sixteen million links dedicated to these misunderstood dogs, I think we are doing a decent job at changing some people’s minds.
To celebrate that, I am going to share one of my favourite’s from today’s search. It was put together by a teenage girl trying to convince others to adopt a pit bull type dog. I know I am convinced!
Thanks to Corbin for this day full of gratuitous pitty love!
