Corbin’s Pitty Post Day!

Guess what? Today is Corbin’s barkday! Happy Barkday, Corbin!

To celebrate, Corbin decided to create the Blogville Pitty Post Day to talk about all the pawsitively wonderful things about pitties!

So I’m gonna pawticipate by telling you a story.

You ready?

Once upon a time, there was this lady — we’ll call her, uh, Mahm* — who was skeered of pit bull-type doggies. One day her husband — we’ll call him Dat* —  suggested that maybe their next dog should be a pit bull-type doggie. But Mahm said, “NO! Absolutely not! Those dogs are unpredictable. I mean, you see all those bad stories in the papers about pit bulls but never about any other doggies. So it must be that pit bulls are bad dogs.”

Well, the very next day, they went to get some food for their other doggie — we’ll call him Brudder Granger* — and there was an adoption fair going on. Mahm went over to pet the doggies while Dad got the food. She sat down on the floor and this Most Gawjuss Brindle Girlie — we’ll call her May-Zee* — went over and plopped herself in Mahm’s lap. May-Zee looked at Mahm. Mahm looked at May-Zee. And that was that. But Mahm wanted to be sure May-Zee wasn’t one of those — gulp! — pit bulls. So she asked the lady what kinda doggie May-Zee was and the lady said she was a Boxer mix. “Whew! What a relief!” thought Mahm.

Well, after they adopted May-Zee, everybody who met her assumed she was a pit bull. “No, no, ” Mahm reassured them. “May-Zee’s a Boxer mix.” But still, Mahm was worried that maybe, just maybe, May-Zee WAS a pit bull and one day she’d go cuckoo-nuts and try to eat her.

So she started reading all about pit bull doggies and she learned that she’d been awfully wrong about them. Like, she learned how they don’t have locking jaws and how American Pit Bull Terriers score real high on the American Temperament Test and how they’re used for therapy work and search and rescue. And she learned that the media-peoples don’t like to publish stories about dog bites unless it’s a pit bull.

But prolly the biggest thing that helped Mahm learn the truth abouts pit bulls was Blogville. That’s where she and May-Zee made lots of furends who were pit bull-type dogs, like CorbinPauley James, Daisy, Roo, The Houston Pittie Pack and Miss M & Mr. B. Reading their bloggies helped her finally and truly understand that there are thousands upon thousands of pit bull-type doggies out there that the media-peoples never tell you about — just livin’ their lives with their families, being happy and not hurting anybuddy.

Well, as it turns out, May-Zee’s dee-en-ay test showed that she was a Boxer mix after all. But by that time, Mahm didn’t care. Oh, she knows when other peoples meet May-Zee, they see her as a pit bull doggie and that’s just fine with her. She doesn’t even bother to correct ’em anymore. But what Mahm HOPES they see after they get to know May-Zee is a happy, friendly DOG who is a Most Beloved and Impawtant member of the family.

And that’s what she hopes for all the other pit bull-type doggies out there — that one day, peoples won’t judge a doggie on their looks, but what they are on the inside. Cuz when that day comes, we’ll ALL lives happily ever after.

The End.

*Names have been changed for no reason at all. Any similarity to actual persons or doggies is not really the least bit coincidental.

    I just loved this post! I too have learned a lot over the past couple of years about the truth about pit bull type dogs, and try to educate people as much as I can. Your blog helps get the truth out there.

    Me and my cat Charlie came over from Marg’s Pets! We totally love your story gorgeous Mayzie! We think pit bulls and pit bull type woofies are so misunderstood and any bad publicity is down to how they are treated by their humans. We are now off to say happy birthday to adorable Corbin!

  36. Thank you for introducing yourself AND leaving me such a great pawment about ignoring those anonymous peeps comments who are just being stoopid and nasty. If anything their negative comments made a positive cause we got to know one another AND it made us see exactly what Mr. Corbin was talking about…

    I loved your post… it was so sweet and funny and encouraging, Mayzie. 🙂

    I am adding you along to my Google Reader so I can get to know you!
    Milo (for Shelle (mom) and Dixie (sister) cause both of them are crabby this morning and don’t wanna post anything… those girls -sigh-)

  37. Woof to you Mayzie!!!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful story. As my assistant and I always say, some of the most obedient, calm and sweet dogs we know are pitties and pittie mixes. And I am BEYOND in love with the photos of you in your pink print wings and tutu. Much love to you – XXOO – Mazzie

  38. Mayzie, that’s such a great story. We love success stories and yours is definitely one of those! We never knew about Corbin’s blog so we popped over to visit him yesterday and we think it’s pawsome what he is doing. Thanks for letting us know and for sharing your story. Isn’t it lovely that you have a wonderful home? BTW, we loved that photo of you in your tutu (although I’m worried it may have given the She TWo Legged One ideas about dressing me up – we all know that doesn’t end well!).
