YAY we win!Not only did this idiot human Michael Vick plead guilty, he's been suspended indefinitely from the NFL!! Woot!!!!. Notch one up for my fellow brother and sister canines. It's so sad to know that 53 fellow pitbulls seized from his property will be put down :( I wish mommy and daddy could help but I'm a handful as is. Plus I hate to share my furry toys even though there must be a cutie for me in that bunch for sure.
Next up, watch out rapper DMX! I've been hearing the barks loud and clear that you're up to no good. I got my eye on you!

Micheal Vick - A View From The Pit(bull)
Does the NFL electrocute or drown players that don't win games? That's what happens when a canine brother loses a fight.
I'm not a normally political kinda pit...I prefer lounging and walks over the bridge... but even I can't ignore this anymore. A pit must be heard!
I’m going to get this off my chest because I can’t bark at the television anymore! There needs to be an end to the discussion of ‘hypocrisy’ in regards to the outrage most humans feel about what this Michael Vick human has admitted to doing. He’s getting no more, no less press than than Lindsay Lohan gets on a drunken night out.. woof- PUHLEEZE.
You don’t even have to own a dog, or even LIKE dogs to be outraged by dogfighting. It’s downright despicable. My 'people' are brutalized and tortured for human entertainment. We are trained by humans to do this and we hate it and would rather chase furry things around the back yard, or curl up in the sun for a snooze.
It’s not hypocritical for humans to FINALLY to be outraged at animal cruelty of this scale. It’s called becoming AWARE..and woof woof!...With awareness comes CHANGE. For those who say humans are not treated with the same outrage level in other situations ……Maybe if you humans treated animals better you would treat each other better?
Let’s not forget YOU HUMANS are ANIMALS on this planet as well. What makes you humans think you are capable…that you CAN treat EACH OTHER better, if you are NOT outraged by the cruelty that my canine brothers and sisters endure for ENTERTIANMENT purposes?
How can humans treat each other better if they deem other living things as less worthy than themselves? Humans created my dog aggression, I'd rather be happy and help out rather than fight to the death.
The pitbull community believes the outrage is well deserved, and we want you humans to stop comparing the ‘outrage’ to other awful things-one outrage does not preclude another! Comparing ‘outrage-levels’ is a pathetic way to disengage from the brutality of what happened to my canine brethren.
In the USA: It’s not cultural. It’s illegal.
It’s not about black and white, it’s illegal.
It's about a human breaking the law by fighting/torturing/killing animals for wager and sport.
The pitbulls approve. woofwoofHURRAY!
And tell that Anderson Cooper, I'm camera ready baby...rowr.

Has it been so long?Hello my dear fans!
I'm back after a long hiatus from fitness walks, Bison knuckle bones and chillin in my Soho Pad.
Here I am on the left, life is sooooo gooood chillin' on my comfy bed. Where is the maid?, I need my afternoon bison treat.
I'm going to give you a brief synopsis of the past yrs happenings.
I've been working on my body, can't let the good life keep me from being fit and pretty; especially with summer here and all the boys on the prowl. The long fitness walks as my mommy calls them, or torture walks as Daddy refers to them, through the Soho hood, Lower East Side , East Village and the west side highway keep my buns in shape and my legs muscular. Being a downtown girl, I need to represent!
The most fun is walking the Brooklyn Bridge into Brooklyn with Mommy & Daddy. Daddy loves to come during these walks because he gets to go into his favorite record shop, Halcyon in Dumbo. Here I am on the right with my warm sweater during the cooler fall days.
One of the guys who works there loves me, but then again who doesn't! His name is frog, weird name for a dude but he's mad cool and not so bad looking. I'll let him walk with me in Dumbo but not in Soho, he's not that cute. Here I am in the store.. I had papparzzi chasing me in the store so I hid in the back! hehe.
During this past winter, I couldn't help but notice my new menu. So long are the days of canned, watered down dog food and hello Mr. Bison!. A princess like me deserves the Bison ground beef concoctions my mommy has come with consisting of veggies, frozen pooch meats and yummy ground beef bison. Not to mention the delicious Bison knuckle bones and treats we get from the Farmers market. I put on my pretty face and I always get a treat from the Bison guy, Men are so easy to please.
Daddy has been his usual self, lazy for the walks and easily out of breath after 5 minutes of play. At least he's back to working out now. I like to taunt him in the middle of his work outs to make him lose concentration, I'm so bad :) . He deserves it after bathing me cold water.
Mommy is the greatest, always feeds me on time and gives me the best walks ever. Plus she lets me on the bed and makes Daddy feel guilty for making me sleep on the cold harsh floor. Here I am on the bed when Daddy's not around hehe. A princess deserves no less!
Well, that's it for now. I will be back soon to update you on the latest happenings and gossip. I've been getting fan mail from my adoring fans and I promise to be back more frequently. TaTa!

My favorite newspaper comic stripWhenever Daddy reads the newspaper, I get to sneak a peek at one of my favorite comic strip Dogs, Poncho in the comic strip POOCH CAFE.
Here's one that I can relate to with Poncho, especially in these hot, muggy and humid days of summer.
Next time I'll post one of my other unsung hero, GRIMM! from the comic strip Mother Goose. He is one bad ass pooch! I love him :)

Damn It's Hot.Wooof. OMG. It's hot out heeeyah. Today I popped out with Mommy for a quick poo and a jaunt to my favorite spot, Happy Paws. I'm in desperate need of chewies! They love me there! I always get gold collar service, like Madonna or Oprah does. You know how they do...it's like they close down the store. All those other 'daycare' dogs stay in that big fishtank so I can shop in peace. I can't help being so cute! I picked out my fav squeakies, and I carried the best one out with me cuz I can't WAIT to rip it to shreds when I get home! HOOO!
Then we stopped by Sparkys cuz 'miz owner' needed a burger. I dont get the extra trip...I mean there's soooo many goodies at Happy Paws, why the extra trek up the street in this heat I ask? Anyhoooo there I am contentedly seated outside - Mommy feeding me ice cubes, which, btw I LOVE! And there out of nowhere comes the paprazzi needing pics of me. ::sigh:: What's a pup to do?
POSE, of course! It just makes sense to give them what they want - you know what I mean? I've given up fighting it, I mean can the public help it if they can't get enough of me? Soooo, I obliged the nice boy, from Metro...I think he said his name was Ari...and, I was unbelievably cute drinking out of that cup and snacking on ice cubes. I guess I can't blame him. A pit has to do what a pit has to do. Plus, he said I was pretty, and he let me sniff his camera. Sweeet.
