Bath Time? Again? Seriously???

My mama and papa LOVE giving me a bath in Floor-i-duh!  That's because, rather than a tub, there is a great big walk in shower.  I admit, the tub scares me, although my mama has been helping with those fears.  I thought she had written a post about that but she is a slacker and has not.

This is a picture of the nice shower.
and the sink and toilet, too
So, you see, it's easy for them to trick lure offer me treats to enter the bathroom.
I thought there was something suspicious about those treats.

If I stop trying to escape, will you stop trying to choke me?

Are you almost done?

Oh how I hate the water spitting snake
I do enjoy the towel part, tho

I Met Jesus Today

Yes, it's true.  I met Jesus today.  This is a very short video because my mama didn't have her camera ready the first time I got all excited to meet him.
I have seen him from across the street on my walk.

Today, after all this time, I got to cross the street and say "Hello Jesus, it's nice to finally meet you".

He appeared to be on his lunch break and didn't have much to say, so I kept my distance because I didn't want to interrupt him and we continued on our way.  Maybe we will stop again.

Pit Bull in Disguise

Last year when we came to Floor-i-duh my mama and papa thought the sun was very bright, especially the way it reflects off the sidewalks.  They always wear sunglasses and thought it would be a good idea if I wore some also.  My mama spent all summer getting me used to wearing them.  You can read about that here.  It required a lot of pay-shunts on the part of both of us and a lot of treats too.

Yesterday, for the first time, I tried wearing them on our walk and it wasn't that bad.  The deal was easy, I'll start wearing them but when they start bothering me, I can take them off.
Scanning the area for paparazzi
Yes, I'm very aware they are a little crook-ud.
It started with a lot of treats, my personal favorite and ended when I started trying to get them Off.My.Face!  My mama and papa were fair and didn't try to convince me to continue wearing them.  Everyone was happy with the first attempt.

Today was another day and I'm proud to say I.Wore.My.Sunglasses.The.ENTIRE.Walk!!!
Psst...I've heard that chicks dig dudes in glasses ;o)
Now, here's the funny part.  Well, not funny, haha, but funny, weird.  No one was afraid of me today in my glasses.  Sometimes when we walk, people will cross the street or look down and sneer or move as far as possible away from me and actually bring their hands closer to their bodies.  Like I'm gonna rip their hands right off their arms because I'm a pit bull and people believe that we are un-pre-dick-tu-bull and could just snap at any moment.   Seriously, people!! 

Anyway, today people thought I was cute!  They stopped to get a good look at me or smiled and commented about my nice looking glasses.  Some people chuckled as they walked past.  One lady asked if I minded wearing sunglasses.  My mama told her this was the first time and the lady smiled.  One nice man in a car nearly caused an accident by stopping and commenting on how nicely I behaved.  He even said he wished his kids were so well behaved!  Talk about being a good am-bass-a-door (of course, none of those people had dogs with them, but that's another story).  My mama reads about two pit bull type dogs that live in Chicago, Two Pitties in the City, and their mama says wearing goofy hats and costumes make her dogs more approachable.  If today's reactions are any indication, that's absolutely true and I.Liked.It.  Now, I'm not saying I'll wear goofy hats or costumes but I'm digging the glasses and the love.

My papa says if I'm going to get used to wearing sunglasses, he might need to buy me some manly ones.  That remains to be seen (through sunglasses).

Stuffed or Stuffable, Doesn't Matter to Me

When we visited the Mom & Pop Pet Shop the other day, my papa told "Pop" that I totally destroyed the nice stuffed fishie toy that we brought home the other day.  

Last year when I got one of these fishies, it lasted a really long time but not this year.  I gutted it in about 10 minutes.

"Pop" said he hated to see a dog without a toy (like that would ever happen) and he suggested this one.  My papa, being the soft touch he is, agreed to purchase one for me.
He carries this brand (West Paw Design) because it's MADE IN THE USA, no Chinese ingredients!  This one is called the ZOGOflex Tux and as you can see for yourself, it's stuffable.  Those are my other favorite kind of toys.  If I can't gut them, they need to be stuffed with something good to eat.

Not only is it stuffable, it's recyclable and guaranteed "against dog damage with a one-time free replacement or refund."  Now, that's a good deal. 

Here it is stuffed with one of my favorites...PEANUT BUTTER!!!
My only complaint is that it doesn't hold very much and I can finish it really fast, even when it's frozen.  My mama has been x-peer-i-men-ting with plain yogurt, which I also really like because it tastes like ice cream, or so I'm told.  I told her I would be happy to try it stuffed with just about anything a dog can safely eat, maybe a banana or one of her tasty, homemade chicken jerky pieces.

I'm Boooooord

Yes, I understand that I have several  toys from which to choose...
however...they are all empty.  I would prefer to look at you sadly while I whine softly under my breath in an attempt to drive you insane.
