All You Need Is Love… and a Pit Bull (Black & White Sunday)

Quote: All You Need Is Love...and a pit bull -

If you haven’t noticed by now, I love quotes and I love a good meme or two. So you may see your fair share of both if you follow Lola the Pitty on Facebook.

I’ve always loved the, ‘All you need is love’ quotes and I thought my own little addition was a very fitting ending.

Share & enjoy!

Black & White Sunday – End BSL

'What I think of BSL' -
I think we can all agree that Breed-Specific Legislation pulls families apart. Or wait? Can we? WHY is it still very apparent in cities around us? But as a responsible pit bull owner BSL is part of the battle and a frustrating one at that. We are out to show that WE are the majority and create a positive image for pit bull type breeds. Almost all of the time there is a bad owner behind the problem. But we can save that conversation for another day.

I captured this shot of Rio after a long day of doggy day care. Tired much?! He seriously laid there, tongue hangin’ for about 10 minutes. I have more photos that I’d like to admit of this pose.

Black & White Sunday – ‘Just a Dog’

Beautiful "Just a Dog" poem-

How many times have we all heard this phrase, “It’s just a dog…”. I took this peom, originally believed to be written by Richard Biby and included it with a puppy photo of Lola.

It reads,

From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a dog,”
or “that’s a lot of money for just a dog.”

They don’t understand the distance travelled, the time spent,
or the costs involved for “just a dog.”

Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog.”

Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a dog,”
but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought aobut by
“just a dog,” and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch
of “just a dog” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it’s “just a dog,” then you probably understand
phrases like “just a friend,” “just a sunrise,” or “just a promise.”

“Just a dog” brings into my life the very essence of friendship,
trust, and pure unbridled joy.
“Just a dog” brings out the compassion and patience
that make me a better person.
Because of “just a dog” I will rise early, take long walks and look
longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a dog”
but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

“Just a dog” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts
away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday they can understand that its’ not “just a dog”
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
“just a man” or “just a woman.”

So the next time you hear the phrase “just a dog,”
just smile, because they “just don’t understand.”

Our dogs, Lola and Rio are our lives and this poem couldn’t be any more fitting.

Funny Friday – I don’t always look adorable…

I just couldn’t help myself after seeing all of the “I don’t always X, but when I do, Y”  meme’s after the Dos Equis commercials…

I dont always look

I laugh out loud every time I see this one I put together for Lola. Partially because it sounds so conceited, but partially because it’s true. At least her mama thinks so, *wink, wink*.

Hope you get a laugh out of this and enjoy your weekend!

P.s. here’s another great one, for us crazy dog people.
