Pitbull Awareness Day 2011

In honor of Pitbull Awareness Day, I finally decided to publish an article I published on my personal blog in March, 2011: An interesting thing happened last week: I exited the grocery store and found myself facing a soft, handsome, 8-month-old tan and white pit bull. A young man was proudly holding his leash. I waited my turn as the lady in front of me dropped her groceries to give pats and praise, and then I asked if I might say hello to the furry man of the hour. Permission granted, I proceeded to pat and compliment and gush. The dog’s name is “Z”. I complimented the young man on how nice and well-socialized his puppy was. Of course, I...

From "Difficult" to Diva, how one dog is changing lives

                                                           Oh Miss Molly-D... Molly-Dharma was labelled as a "difficult" dog. Adopted and returned twice (or was it three times?), Molly would return to the MaxFund (a Denver no-kill shelter) more and more stressed. Her first impression behavior was less than ladylike, she was "touchy" (or not, actually) and were it not for her faithful and caring team of rescuers and caregivers at MaxFund, Molly's story would be different, and sadly, shorter.  As it turned out, after almost three years waiting for a home, Molly-Dharma was adopted by a man, and this man had an incredible soul. The man and Molly-Dharma both worked very hard and eventually together they were able to gather the bounty of patience, trust, security, and ...
