I bailed her out of the Yolo Co. pokey.

Marley was a true companion dog and everyones' best friend. Yes, she was a (wonderful) pitbull and yes, she was friendly. This pittie girl could body surf, snow shoe and teach a fourth grader the multiplication tables. Marley's remarkable 12+ years of life were cut short by an aggressive thyroid tumor. We spared her the continued discomfort and un-pitbull like end. She passed away on the first day of spring after many weeks of hiking, swimming, playing with human and canine friends, beach and desert trips. In her last month she had myriad visitors and wishes for a peaceful end to her amazing and exemplary life. She was and always will be the best dog ever.

The End Came Too Soon.

Marley, true to her breed, fought a courageous battle against the sneaky enemy, cancer.
She and we tried to beat it, but at almost 13 years old...she was tired and not as game as she was back in her youth. She was a character, she went to school, she travelled, she adapted to our family, She helped to raise two girls and many other dogs. And through it all she was calm, stable, mellow and sweet. She touched a lot of lives. Marley will be remembered by many, many people who loved her. She was a perfect breed ambassador and convinced the skeptics (and the wary parents of hundreds of children who knew and adored her) that pitbulls are wonderful dogs. They are people dogs. They are excellent family dogs. Thank you Marley for more than 12 years of love, adventure and companionship. You will always be remembered as the BEST dog.


New Pal in the Pack

Well the newest member of the pack is shaping us nicely...she feeds me three times a day (sometimes more and there are always leftovers around the carseat). She has a plethora of toys and is so willing to share! She even throws (well, that's a stretch) the ball for me in the back yard. She still is pretty squeaky but she doesn't cry as much at night...which is good for my beauty rest. I think she likes almost everything I like, especially beach walks and ground beef. The best part is she recognizes the gift of walking on all fours! Now if she could just learn to play tug and hunt gophers....

Well, just as I suspected, our pack has gained another member. She is pretty small and squeaky, but she'll grow up fast. I plan to train her personally so she will understand the importance of feeding me bacon, walking me to the beach everyday and letting me play with her stuffed animals. My owners are fairly occupied with the newest I am getting loads of R and R. I am reading a memoir called Dog Years...pretty heavy stuff for the average canine brain. Good thing I took comparative lit. at UCD.
