I'm a dog. I love dogs. And I love humans. I'm not sure how I feel about cats. They don't seem too interested in me, so I haven't tried to play with them...yet. Over the weekend I had a great time playing with the dog friends on my block (including my best dog friend, Moxie). I also met two pit bulls named Fiona and Ginger. Ginger is a white pit bull, like me, and Fiona is a brown puppy. I love playing with them because they play just as rough as I do. We bit each others faces and ears and pounced and knocked each other around for over 30 minutes. It was great.
Then, on Sunday night, I made a new human friend! Her name is Gail, and she's Alicia's childhood friend. She's staying at our house for a few days and she loves to play with me and also lets me snuggle with her. Snuggling is the best.
Every day on my walks I make new friends. Most people are surprised at how friendly and snuggly I am. There are lots of misconceptions about pit bulls being vicious creatures. I'm working to set the record straight. Whenever I see someone (human or dog) that I want to play with (which is whenever I see anyone or anydog), I crouch down and wag my tail really fast. Then, I wait for the person or dog to come close enough and then I jump out at them and begin licking (for humans) or sniffing/nibbling (for dogs). After a few seconds, you're likely to find me splayed out on my back with my belly exposed for all to see. My human neighbor Nels calls me a "ferocious beast" and teases me for how mean and angry I am. The neighborhood kids all know my name and I love when they come running at me. While they give me nice pets and scratches, I lick their faces and make them giggle and squeal.
I hope someday I get to meet you. I will lick your face and gladly accept scratches and pets. If I really like you, I'll even snuggle. So, when are you coming over?
