This is Hera and as Pitbull Awareness Month ends
I would like to remind my friends a few simple things:
✽ It’s the owner, not the breed
✽ We were bred as babysitters
✽ We are super loyal to our family, so don’t abuse our loyalty
✽ Our love’s as strong as a bull
✽ Our tail is dangerously vivid
Sending all my friends paw waves and slobbery kisses [to those who can take it! 😉
Copying from The National Pitbull Awareness Day for some history on how and why this day was created:
In 2007, National Pit Bull Awareness Day was created to help raise awareness on the truth about Pit Bulls. For nearly 100 years, these four-legged friends were considered “Nanny Dogs,” because they were so loyal, docile, and loving that parents would often leave their babies or toddlers with their pit bulls while they ran to the store. Over the decades, pitties have unfortunately garnered a reputation as being ferocious, malicious, and dangerous beasts. An image far from the truth and based on the actions of maligned humans, not the animals themselves. Pit bulls were born out of a mixture of a bulldog and a terrier in England in the 18th century, partly to help with much-needed rodent and vermin regulation from the Industrial Revolution, but also because dog fighting was, unfortunately, popular at the time. That being said, as the now-extinct Bull and Terrier breed evolved into the American Staffordshire Pit Bull we now know and love, these pups were always considered affectionate, loyal, and great family dogs by breeders and owners alike.

Reminds me of this recent local story where a couple were on TV trying to get their dog back
Oh, nooooo… this is horrible!!!!!!!! What’s wrong with these people!
Government policy… as usual… 🤣
…and to think we vote for these scumbags [well, at least some of us] 😉
OMG! Hera is one scary looking puppy! 🤣😂🤪
Give her some kisses for me, and I’m off to get my sponges!
I know! She’s a pretty scary and vicious dog. Will attack full force… for kisses!
Enjoy your returned extra hour today Hera and your faithful 🐓 companion. ✨🐾🐕🐾🐶🐾✨
Enjoying it already! How much better and natural this is. Dreading DST!!!
Happy Sunday, my 🐉 friend!
A little US-centric, but interesting nonetheless: https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2018/03/05/the-5-reasons-to-keep-daylight-saving-time-have-no-science-to-back-them-up/?sh=270b25a6a2da
Very interesting indeed! Only I fear after the EU voted to keep one hour, every country picking the one they wanted, Greece voted DST! The Horror!!!! I mean we’re just one day out of it and I already feel much better! Oh, well… 🙄
“the EU voted to keep one hour” – I wonder where about they keep it? In a vault in Paris next to the kilogram probably.
😂🤣😂🤣😂errr scuse me! I meant one time, DST or Normal [Winter] time! 😉
but you’re probably right. They’re keeping it hostage in some vault!😂🤣😂
And, what’s worse – that hour safely under lock and key probably isn’t even there! (Just ask the Germans about when they asked for all of their gold back from the US) 😉
A ha ha ha…. not to mention the WWII reparations to Greece that they still haven’t paid! Poor hour!
Yes, you said it. Poor little thing. ✨🐓🙋♂️
Big kis and scratch behind Hera’s ears for me!
And hugs for you!
All done and she sends loving woofs, tail wags and slobbery kisses back!!!!
And these are from me: 🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗
🍁🍂🪵happy November, I hope it’s great.

A head & back scratch plus a belly rub for Hera. Yamas!
I tried commenting via my mobile but my fingers are too clumsy, so here I am at my desktop!
Thank you for enlightening me about these beautiful dogs, especially Hera😊. My eldest daughter has 2 Staffordshires and whilst very excitable they are lovely. It’s just a shame my wife doesn’t like dogs and excitable ones are not going to win her over.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Walkies! 🐕😎
Thank you, my friend. I bet your daughter is blissfully happy with her Staffies. No, you’re right and part of the decision of getting a dog is that every member of the family agrees. Only way for everyone to be happy! 😉🐾🌻
She’s blushing! 😉🐾🐾🐾
