Arrival Story:
This dog was actually traded to my former tenant for a paint job, but he put the pup outside in winter w/no good shelter or food, so I contacted the original owner and he told me to get him, take him to the vet and he would give him and his papers to me. Rockets littermates has ganged up on him and he had a severe wound on his chest..the rest is history! He's a wonderful ambassador for his breed and a testimont to the true characteristics of the APBT.

Bio:
Rocket got his name because when he was little, you could slide him across the kitchen floor and he would run back to you fast as a Rocket! He was always spunky! He loved that game. Rocket is the sweetest, most lovable dog I have ever owned. He is ADBA registered. He get along with all my other 3 dogs wonderfully and my cat. He is the biggest lap dog I have ever owned! A true pit bull's nature is loving and eager to please and loyal. I just hate the bad rap these pure animals have to endure! My Maltese is more apt to bite someone than my pit! As they say, "Punish the deed, Not the breed!"

I just wanted to thank all of my dogster friends and pals that supported me in the tail waggins bakery photo contest! I came in second place in my semi final round, but some really cute competition won out in the final. I had fun, though, and just wanted to thank all those that supported me! I think I might just enter some more competitions because it's a good platform to show people how sweet and nice my breed and other misunderstood breeds really are. I just want to ask everyone to do what you can to help stop unfair Breed Specific Legislation whenever you can. Our poor fellow canines are really suffering from it in many places, such as Canada and some states in the U.S as well. We all have to stick together!

Much Love and Barks,
Rocket

 

Bed Hog!

Mom and Dad say I am a bed hog! Last night while Dad was getting ready for bed, I arranged all his pillows just right and made myself a nice hole to lay in! Then he came to bed and said "I don't think so!" and he made me move. He said he would share one pillow, but not all of them. They never leave me enough room between them, so I have to just squeeeeze in between till I fit. I think it's them that are the bed hogs, not me! Anyway, i know they love it when I sleep right there cuz they always rub on me till they fall alseep.
I know I'm winning Spanky over, too, cuz he almost never growls at me anymore when I get in bed.

Anyway, i am really excited because this weekend we are going to the river in the boat! I love the river. Mom calls it Ole Man River. I think it's a song about it. I love to bite the waves and dig in the sand and pull everyone back to safety when they float to far out on the tube. They just don't know how dangerous that river is, so I keep them pulled back to the beach and if they float back out, I just go get them again. Guess someone has to look out for them. I will let everyone know how it goes. Bark at ya later!

Bed Time

I have always slept in the living room on the couch because my big brother Maltese, Spanky always growled at me when I tried to sleep in the bed with him and my mom and dad. They put up a pet gate between the living room and bedroom so we would not argue at night. I would get sad and whine every night before going to sleep, so the other night, I decided to give it another try. After everybody went to bed, I pushed the gate aside and slipped back into the bedroom. My entrance to the bed was not very graceful, though, and I wound up jumping right on top of my dad! It scared the you know what out of him! SPanky got mad of course and growled at me, but I ignored him as usual and curled up at the bottom of the bed and didn't move all night. Since I was so good and didn't wiggle, I get to sleep in there everynight now! I knew if I showed them what a good boy I am, they would let me stay! Even SPanky has calmed down about it now! Well, guess I'll get back to holding the couch down till everybody gets home from work. Bark at ya later!
