News Flash: Trixie finds a forever home!

I'm so psyched! My friend Trixie has found her forever home!!

Trixie is an older dog, blind, and a little hard of hearing. She'd been at PAWS for a while, and we were beginning to worry. But a really nice family came along and took this sweetie home yesterday.

She's a truly amazing dog. You'd think a nine-year-old, blind dog would want to put up her paws and sleep all day. Not this girl! She loves long walks, and is great at maneuvering her way around. She learned the layout of PAWS and I'm sure she'll quickly learn the pattern of her new home.

All the best to Trixie and her new family! Kisses and hugs to you sweetie!!

Mom! What's that "L" on your forehead?!

"Mom, why's your hand all bandaged up?"
"I don't know what you mean, dear."
"What's that "L" on your forehead?"
"What "L" is that, dear? It's probably just a shadow from the sun, honey."
"No, mom, it's clearly an "L." As in Loser."
"All right, dear. I broke the first rule of interacting with dogs."
"And that is...?"
"Never let your guard down when two strange dogs are near each other."
"English, please, Mom?"
"Okaaaay... I put my hand near an angry dog's mouth, and it became an hors d'oeuvre, okay honey? Happy now? Your mom is an idiot."
"I see. Was it a big, mean pit bull?"
"No, dear, it was actually a small breed. I've never been bitten by a big, mean pit bull. Just those little ones. Always the little ones."
"Stitches, mom?"
"You're enjoying this, aren't you honey?"

LA Times correction - It wasn't a Pit after all!

Earlier this month, the LA Times reported - then corrected - that a family's pit bull bit their toddler. The LA Department of Animal Services later reported that the dog was actually a shepherd mix, not a pit bull. Thank you, LADAS, for clarifying this for us!! (Best wishes for the child's speedy recovery!!)

Did you know Helen Keller had a Pit Bull?

It's true! And so did Fred Astaire and Thomas Edison. So many of today's celebs are pit lovers, too.

Little Red: A Vicktory Dog

Little Red is one of Michael Vick's former dogs, now at Best Friend's in Utah. Her story is sad and uplifting at the same time. Even though she had her teeth filed down so she couldn't fight back, her love and trust still shine through. It's amazing how forgiving animals can be!
