It’s been 3 years since I updated this blog, this maybe my last post. On June 12, 2107 at about 9:00 in the morning Daisy flew over the rainbow bridge. She finally had succumbed to the cancer that she had fought for several years. Hemangiosarcoma, initially the growths were on the skin and fairly easily removed, some via laser and some under anesthesia. This battle went on for 5 years, with the hope that these growths would never metastasize. In October of 2016 after an ultrasound, we found out that the cancer had spread to her spleen and it was removed. She was given about 3-6 months at that point.

Saying good-bye to Daisy was one of the hardest things I have had to do. I rescued her after Natalie died, because Natalie’s wish was to rescue a white pitbull and name her Daisy. Daisy helped me heal from the grief of losing a child, and brought me joy. Daisy and I did a lot together including obtaining her CGC, Canine Good Citizen, it was important to me she be a breed ambassador.

Daisy spent her last day at home and the vet came to our house, she fell asleep peacefully in her bed with Roscoe laying next to her.

I was lucky to have such a friend.

Hello furends!  I know I have been away for a while, but I couldn’t forget to remind everyone about Pit Bull Awareness Day!  Today  is a day of appreciation and education designed to change perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their responsible owners.

Me and my brothers.

We want to make everyone aware of how Pit Bulls can live with other dogs and cats too!

At the Parky!

We love the dog parky and traveling there with my dog walker and my other furry friends!

On the way to the Parky!!

Well, most of you saw my D-N-A, and guess what? Of course I am a pit bull!!  Pit bulls are not a pure breed of dog, but come in many shapes, colors and sizes. Our favorite Rescue BAD RAP has a whole page on what a pit bull is, you can read it here if you are interested.  Pit bulls are not a pure breed of dog or recognized by the AKC, most of us have American Staffordshire Terrier, or bulldog, boxer, english bull dog and well you can see my DNA I have some of those and not others.  But I am sure many pit bull moms and dads would say they are the best dogs in the world, what do you think?

Reporting on my DNA from my favorite chair

And now for my regularly scheduled nap!

The Results are IN!

I forgot to tell you that mom had my DNA tested!!  Yes she swabbed  the inside of mouth mouth a couple times and sent it in the mail to a scientist and they sent us back a report!

The mixed breed was mainly Dalmation and Miniature Pincher and Boxer!  It doesn’t say pit bull anywhere on this report!! I wonder if they made a mistake? What do you think?

We have some sad news today

As many of you know we are big fans of our friends over at Bad Rap. They do so many amazing things for pibbles, and have rescued so many in need. Last October they took in an emaciated pit bull who was later diagnosed with lymphoma. A wonderful Lady took her in to give a the best life however long. Thank you to Nice Lady.

Birdy had alot of loving to do before she flew home.

Mom had a huge soft spot for this girl, and followed her blog religiously. On Tuesday we found out Birdy wasn’t doing so well and her departure for home was eminent, today at 4. This morning she flew home a bit ahead of schedule.

Good Bye Sweet Birdy. We loved you from afar, we watched you love those around you and enjoy your sweet time with Nice Lady and OM.
