Likes: Very people oriented. Pita loves to be fed with a fork. Pita will almost always during a walk; stop to smell the flowers on her path. She truly enjoys flower aromas. Loves to chase skateboards, bikes & squirrels. Must sleep on the bed and cuddle!
Pet-Peeves: loud noise
Favorite Toy: large stuffed Pikachu & dad...especially Jake...loves to lick him to pieces!
Favorite Food: MERRICK's All Natural Gourmet & CALIFORNIA NATURAL kibbles. AND, Bob cooks boneless chicken breasts/thighs just for me & I love carrots, strawberries, avocados and gourmet steak everytime we go to restaurants. I love to eat daddy's eggs and toast.
Favorite Walk: Everywhere. Most favorite place is the beach. Pita loves to dig a hole at the shoreline, lay in it and play tag with the waves.
Best Tricks: Loves watching the world through mirrors. Pita has quite a selection of mirrors to choose from throughout the house and always lays in spots wherein she can see our bed, kitchen area, front door through mirrors in different rooms. Most unusual trait!
Arrival Story: Thirteen years ago (1996), PITA was a rescue; or should I say; she adopted me. When I met her, I took her leash to walk her. She immediately tangled the leash around my legs and plopped herself down on my feet and began to smile and pant! That was it! I belonged to her! I was adopted by (renamed - PITA ).
Bio: Pita is mascot and inspiration for our non profit 501c3; People In The Arts Foundation, Inc. (Pita Foundation) The website is currently undergoing a face lift and mission statement re assignment AS WE ARE TRANSITIONING OUR MISSION STATEMENT TO WORK MORE EXTENSIVELY WITH ANIMAL RIGHTS, RESCUE AND FOSTERING.

Feel free to contact us regarding any donation inquiries and we shall be happy to discuss our mission and how you can contribute and be a part of our endeavors! Our dog PITA, works as a Service Animal and is a natural cure for all who come into contact with her. PITA seems to have an ability by her presence, to change and transfer negative energy into something positive. As the guardian of this very unique creature, I can attest to her natural/holistic influences on the lives she has touched from children to seniors. Our lives belong to her whims. I do not believe in magic; however, I do believe in the power of love and physical reinforcement. This unique animal has the ability to make anyone in contact with her make their situation better and easier by virtue of her contact with the individual. THIS Dog, PITA, is a unique creature ~ and a "God Send". PITA has been instrumental in bringing children out of severe depression, given seniors a reason to smile again; and effective in her pre warning abilities with heart patients. Pita has very recently, November 2007 gone 90% deaf. Yet she continues to do her job and I believe her other senses were heightened as a result of this. She is to be loved and admired forever. Only God truly knows how much our Pita is loved and respected!

Special Skill/Ability: About six months after PITA acquired me, it came to my attention that she got distressed when around a human about to undergo angina/heart attack. She was consistent in this. She was certified by the State of California as an Assistance Dog. And just for good measure, on August 3, 2007 Pita was evaluated by the American Kennel Club and received her Canine Good Citizen Certificate and tag. We are very proud parents of Pita!
First time I have looked through the videos and photos in a very very long time. I suppose it is why I don't return here very often. Sad memories of our beloved dogs. Great memories of Jake and the dogs and life as it was so awesome in Southern California. I shall return though. LALO too.
A few of Pita's friends were thoughtful enough to send a rosette and birthday comment. I am very touched that Pita is still remembered by others. You all know how very very important and in love I was with that dog therefore anytime someone reminds or remembers her I am truly deeply touched. Thank you on her behalf. Bob and Lalo
We wanted to so very much thank you all for your kind words, rainbows, angel wings and thoughts. We miss her dearly but will live on in our memories. We are thinking of writing a book about her extraordinary life and adventures over the past 15 years. Absolutely will keep all posted. Again from our hearts, thank you for your support and outpouring of love...Pita's family
