Black Dog Syndrome and Pitbulls

I read a story about how so many black dogs at shelters are the first euthanized and last adopted.It is very sad because I think black dogs are very pretty and sleek-looking. The problem is that there is many more black dogs than multicolored or light-colored dogs in the world. People are pushed away from dark colored dogs because in many movies and in media the "bad" dogs seem to be black.

 Sad to hear isn`t it? I mean this would be one of the first dogs I go to.

Also, I feel like I need to talk about how Pitbulls get such a bad rap. Yes there are some that have attacked people and children and the dog gets blamed for it when actually it raised or bred to be vicious. These dogs also can be a "ticking time bomb" because they had been abused or mistreated so the dog gets confused or scared and lashes out. But Pitbulls are actually real sweethearts. I have a woman who walks hers by my house every day and it is so sweet to everyone- even children. Many people are intimidated by this breed of dog because the main place you see stories of this dog is on the media with it`s odds against it. My thought is when you see a story about a Pitbull being mean you should research it more to see the details of the story. I  think Pits are very sweet,loving, misunderstood dogs.

Active Day Today

  Today I took Maura to a race to watch the people finish and to be socialized.She was so sweet to everyone and  even claimed a little kid as her own! She just sat in his lap and stared at him- it was  so funny! But she only met a couple of dogs because a lot of them seemed aggressive. Many people there would say "Oooo, look a Corgi!" Later she got her second wind and I took her train (sorry, no new video)! Maura was still energized so I took her on a run with me. She ran (somewhat) a mile with me constantly telling her "Get the kitty!!" or "Get the squirrel!!!" to get to speed up. I then brought her back home when she finally gave out. Here are some photos from after the run.I figured out that Maura would get more speed,stamina and endurance for agility if she was in top physical condition. So running a mile a day will really help that, also it will get me out of the house.

 She has bags under her eyes. Major tired.
 Can`t tell if she saw something or is just really tired....
 "I even have my own running shoes!" - Maura
Sleepy much?

This Rainy Day Brought Play

Maura usually stays inside on these days, but I had nothing to do, so we went and played! ( She was soaking wet and dirty by the end of 20 minutes. But I cleaned her up.)

Hey, I`m sad being inside. Wanna cheer me up? ( I can never say no.)

This is what grows in a day when it rains!

More tall grass!

I buried a treat in the mud and she dug it up! (Note the mud on her nose.)

Get the Egge! Get it!
