Oh! NOW I see where this came from. ;-) I love these. Especially love the Sisters picture but also the number of children BRAVE enough to sit with their pits.

I think those dogs are babysitters. see how many depression photos there are? Im pretty sure those dogs were watching the children half the time. if those dogs were actually the way they are portrayed now -no way youd see all those wee chiles with them. its the gangsta culture that ruined what was the quintessential american dog.

Moi said they were called "Nanny Dogs" so you're right. Wow. I had no idea. I love pits and there will be one in my future.... you know, when I don't have SO MANY. :-) Remember that puppy we saw on the Island that the rescue dog lady had? *sigh* Beautiful dog.

I'm amazed at how little the dog's looks have changed in nearly 100 years. I still see pitties who look just like the ones in these photos--whether "classically" conformed pits, big cross-bred lugs, or little petite puggish pocket pits. And their temperament, in spite of all the thuggery shenanigans, remains more rock solid than just about any other breed. A dog I still feel confident in recommending as a supreme family pet.

This reminds me, I'm thinking of giving my twin granddaughters reticulated pythons for their next birthdays.

howwwwwwwwwwwwwwwl cat. thats funny

My dad had a little black staff terrier. the "land shark" we called her. Bebe was her real name. Loved her, picked her up in south georgia for my dad and damn near refused to hand her over. she wouldve been happier with me. she had the widest head you ever saw and the classic smile. damn movie star.

We'll be looking for a little "land shark" for Maddie when Ivan eventually passes along. Staffies are super cool and compactly packaged. But I love the breed mostly because of that damn smile. Wide like the side of a bus and full of joy and mischief.

Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?
If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Right now it looks like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
though you relied on the video to make your point.

You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos
to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
