Well, it is really nice that magiceye came up with this blog about pets. I'm sure that's why my grandma wanted my picture here. Magiceye is in India and my grandma LOVES India. She has so many friends there - most of them are crew members for Royal Caribbean and she even spent ten days in India in 1997, at the home of a crew friend! I must say my grandma - you know her as Carmen Henesy, who writes "Carmen's Chronicles" - wasn't thrilled about my joining the family. Oh, she loves dogs, all right, but when her son, Alex, and her almost daughter-in-law ( they're getting married May 7th after a six year courtship ) bought their house in West Sacramento in April 2009 and wanted to adopt a dog, my grandma wasn't happyabout their getting a pit bull. She'd heard all kinds of negative things about us.
Well, Laura and Alex did a lot of research, even talked to a vet who said pit bulls don't deserve that bad rap and they fell in love with me at the Yolo County animal shelter. I was a year old already and I hadn't been treated very well in my previous home. I was a bit shy, not at all ferocious and mean like my grandma thought I might be and the rest, as they say, is history. I came to live with Laura and Alex and I love them so much....and I adore my grandma. Sometimes, when she visits, I even sleep with her! She really likes to snuggle - and there is a lot of her for snuggling. I am a real lady, just like my grandma.
Here's me with Laura after wedding dress shopping. She was worn out and needed me to snuggle with her.
Here I am with my pop, Alex, ( he's in the light blue shirt ) and my Uncle Shawn
A couple of months after I joined the family, Laura and Alex were worried that I might be lonely when they had to go to work. They were also concerned that I was so shy. They decided they had enough love to bring another dog into our home so they went back to the Yolo County shelter to find a companion for me, one who was a bit more outgoing. They picked Bucky who can be a real pain in the neck. He's about two years old and he is all male ( except he's missing some essential parts, if you know what I mean ). He is rambunctious and loves to play rough. He's perfect for Alex. I have to admit that I do love Bucky ( don't tell him ) and I put up with his shenanigans, up to a point. When I get tired of his stuff, I have to let him know I am a pit bull, after all, and I bare my teeth.
Here I am with Bucky - he could wrestle all the time but he's twice my size and weight!
Our house has a nice fenced back yard and we have doggie doors so we can go in and out on our own. We live very close to the door park, too, and the Sacramento River with its jogging trails and my mommy and daddy take us almost every day. They both like to exercise and run
( my grandma does not but she enjoys going to the dog park to see us play with other dogs ). I am so happy that I got rescued. Now, maybe in a year, I'll have a baby in our family to help protect and love. My grandma promises she will always love me, though!
