My Pittied Life: August

Welcome to another edition of our “pittied” lives. These months just keep passing me by…

My Pittied Life - Lolathepitty.com

Besides Googling things such as “how to express your dogs anal glands”, August was a fairly exciting month.

Well, in my life – not so much the dogs’ lives. Their lives are pretty consistent and really just vary on how many times they make it to the park that week.

Photo Shoot

I am in love with this photo of the four of us! These three make my life complete. Big thanks to my friend, Stephanie of YBF Photo for the awesome photo shoot.

Resigning…

I made a big decision. A life changing decision. On August 15th, I resigned from my full-time position as a Marketing Director. It was time to put myself first, move on and accomplish my life goals. I can’t say too much yet, but I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted as I’m excited for the future.

And to be honest – I’m a little scared at the same time.

Park Time!

The weather (for once) has been awesome and so we’ve been taking advantage of park time with the pups.

Fairly certain I love the Minnehaha park as much as the dogs do…

Hiking trails, river access, off leash park = happy us and pups.

Lola and Rio usually leave looking like this: sand filled, wet, and dirty.

Blog Life:

Besides entertaining the two mutts, working on a couple web design projects, and working (yes, I had two jobs prior), I usually spend my nights parked on the couch with a laptop close by.

    Hi Sarah and your gorgeous babies 🙂 I’ve just come across your blog via Pinterest and subscribed immediately! Loa a Rio are just beautiful and I love to see you creating such positivity about the Pit Bull breed. I’ve had Pitties in the past and they are just such amazingly loving loyal dogs it really saddens and angers me the stereotypes that surround the breed. At the moment I have 2 Rottweilers – another beautiful breed that suffers from being labelled aggressive and dangerous. Keep up your great work!! I’m so glad I live far away from you (New Zealand) because otherwise I’d be wanting to adopt every one of the adoptable dogs of the week!!

      Hi Helen,
      Thanks for the positive comment – made my night ;). And thank you for being another breed ambassador and giving often misjudged breeds a chance!

    I love this picture! great photography. Is the dog on the right a Pit Bull Mix? I also have a Pitbull she is two years old and she is the best dog ever. The media certainly needs to change their views on Pit Bull dogs. Keep up the great work and you will achieve your life goals soon!
