Bio: My name is Stitch aka the Ole Mighty One. I'm a 3 year old rednose American Pit Bull Terrier. My birthday is February 1st, 2004. I live with my mommy in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I was the runt of my litter and weigh 66 pounds. I'm neutered. I'm super friendly, I love going to the off-leash park. I also love hiking. I'm really smart, I know tons of tricks. I'm also really well behaved. I'm kind of a picky eater, but I love raw meat. I live with a cat named Shiloh, a bunch of mice and a rabbit named Eeyore, who I'm terrified of. I also live with a 7 month old German Shepherd mix named Kiara, 3 cats, 3 turtles and a snake, which belong to my roomates.
I have a website geocities.com/stitchthepitbull
His name is Shiloh and he's a kitty! Yes we named him after a dog lol.
My mom was worried he'd be afraid of me, but he isn't at all. She was also worried that I'd be all up in his face or chase him, but I was a good boy and didn't. I'm very gentle with him, I just sniffed him. He climbed onto my bed and fell asleep, then I actually went and curled up beside him! He thinks I'm a chew toy too, he likes to pounce on me and bite my tail and toes!
He's not afraid of my roomate's dog Kiara either, she's very gentle with him too. He's afraid of my roomate's cat Tony though, he hisses and runs away from him. Tony didn't even do anything, he just sat and looked at him. He just has t oget used to him, I know they'll be best friends in no time! He hasn't met their two other cats yet, I'm not sure how they're going to like him.
He did great his first night. He was a little scared at first, but now he's becoming braver and curious. He uses his litter box which is great lol. He likes to pounce on my mom and climb up her, digging his sharp claws in her back! Anyways he has some pretty cool toys that I want. My mom won't let me play with him though, she says I'll destroy them. Pfft, the kitty doesn't even have to share?!
You will never believe what my mom just brought home, a little black puppy! We named him Baloo after the big black bear from the movie the Jungle Book. He is around seven weeks old and he's a Border Collie/Labrador mix.
Here's his story:
My mom's sister lives on an acreage and their neighbor's dog had a litter of puppies. They're kept outside, so of course the puppies were kept outside too. She had around ten puppies, they sold most of them. Some of them wandered off and they don't know what happened to them. They ended up with two left.
One of them has a big scab on the back of his head and the other one has a bad leg, so no one wanted them. They're not sure how the one got the scab, but they said the other one was stepped on by a horse when he was three weeks old. They didn't even take him to the vet to get treated!
My mom's sister called my mom and told her the story. She said that since no one wanted to buy them, they were going to abandon them somewhere. My mom could not believe that and went up there to get them. They wanted to sell them to her, but she convinced them to just give them to her.
She doesn't think she can handle two puppies, so her mom is going to take care of the one with the scab on his head. We'll be able to find a home for him sooner because he doesn't need that much treatment. The other one can walk, but he limps alot. He's been like that for weeks, so he's gotten used to it.
We're going to take him to the vet to get his leg x-rayed to see what needs to be done. The vet assistant said he might need surgery, it depends on how bad his leg is. We're going to keep him until his leg gets better, then we'll find him a new home. That is if my mom doesn't get attached and wants to keep him! lol.
My mom took me camping over the weekend, our roomates and Kiara came too. We went camping up in Bragg Creek, it's just so nice up there. Ever since we went the first time and I met those cows, I've been obsessed with cows! Before I didn't even notice the cows in the fields when we drove there and back, but now that's all I care about. I constantly look out the window for cows and when I see some, no matter how far away they are, I go crazy!
There were no cows close to our campsite though, which kind of sucks because I wanted to play with them! I did see some other interesting animals though. We went for a little walk down the cow trail there and found a nice sunny place to sit. Then a few dogs and some people horsebacking riding walked by. Mom quickly grabbed my collar so I wouldn't go chase those horses, she knew I wanted to. I did get to say hello to the dogs though.
A while after that, mom looks around and couldn't believe what she saw, a baby black bear! It was her first time seeing a bear in the wild so that was pretty exciting. She quickly grabbed my collar because, well you know me, I would've chased the poor thing! Once it heard us, it took off. We quickly left that spot before mommy bear came, wouldn't want to run into her! On the way back to our campsite, we ran into the dogs and horses again.
I was really tired on this trip, I was actually the first one ready for bed! As soon as the tent was set up, I went and layed down. Mom thought it was kind of funny and cute. Of course I had to sleep in her sleeping bag so she couldn't really zip it up. She said she was kind of cold because of that, but I kept her legs warm. On the way home, I saw a deer and her fawn! I never thought I'd see so many interesting animals all in one day!
