Cuddling with Daddy D
not having anyone with whom to cuddle, being wet
Linus gave up toys a few years ago, though he does use them to distract Theo
the church yard across the street from our house
Paw & Other Paw, keeping the pack safe without being aggressive
Linus was brought to the shelter while I was working there. His former owner was a drug dealer, and after a State Police raid, the dog and kids were taken into protective custody. By the time his former owner was sentenced, Linus had become deathly ill with an upper respirtory infection. He was marked to be euthanized, and I said goodbye. I was living with my parents and they had (and still have) a geriatric beagle. Adopting a young male Pit bull with a geriatric Beagle and surgically repaired Lab was just not practical, or so we thought. The shelter was open late that night and he was to be put down after closing. I pulled his blanket and water and went home for the night with a tear in my eye. When I came in to work the next morning, I found that the other shelter staff had forgotten to put him down; he had green discharge from his eyes and nose and was shivering...I dropped the hose and called my Mom, who agreed that his survival was a sign from the Almighty that we had to atleast foster him and find him a home. That was six years ago and he is my rock. He and Maxx act as if they are littermates...Maxx is the brains and Linus the brawn, though Linus is no dummy! When maxx was attacked by a 135lb Akita, it was Linus that defended us! He was given to me by the Almighty as a protector and snuggler. When I got married, it all came together; he was waiting for my Husband, who is his number one! Linus is so sweet and tender to his younger Pit bull brother Theo and protects his older Lab brother Maxx with his life...
He is so sweet and tender...even when attacked by a dog twice his size he did not fight, he took control and held the dog at bay until the police could get the attacker on a control stick. he works everyday to dispell the false myths about Pit bulls. Also, he is scared to death of my parents 20 year old female Beagle. When LaVerne growls, Linus cowers.....
For dogs, with the times...
