Today is National Purebred Dog Day!

May 1, 2017

The American Kennel Club® (AKC®) invites you to join us on May 1st as we celebrate pride, predictability and purpose of purebred dogs and promote the preservation of these breeds. This year, two Congressional resolutions designate May 1st as National Purebred Dog Day® (NPDD). Senate Resolution 144 introduced by Senator Thom Tillis and House Concurrent Resolution 46, introduced by Congressmen Ted Yoho, Kurt Schrader and Ralph Abraham highlight the role that purebred dogs and breeders of purebred dogs have played in the history of the United States as well as the numerous ways purebred dogs have served U.S. citizens as search and rescue dogs, guide and service dogs, military working dogs and more, all while providing one-of-a-kind companionship.

The designation of National Purebred Dog Day was created by Colorado resident and Puli fancier Suzi Szeremy to recognize the heritage and diversity of purebred dogs and to highlight and celebrate all the ways purebred dogs better our lives. In March of 2015, Colorado became the first state in the country to recognize May 1 as National Purebred Dog Day® by joint resolution of the House and the Senate, and with the endorsement of the American Kennel Club®. Since then, both Houses of Congress and numerous states have recognized National Purebred Dog Day. In addition to these new Congressional resolutions, the states of Connecticut and Georgia also recognized National Purebred Dog Day for the first time this year. [Read more]

11-year old rushes to the defense of Pit Bulls

March 30, 2017

Pit Bull Standing

Check out this sweet letter to the editor from a young one named Ryleigh Johnson. Sometimes, pre-teens have more sense than we so-called adults do.

To the editor:

I am 11 years old and I love all dogs. In your “Pit Bull Bites Jefferson County Sheriff’s Arm” article, why couldn’t you just write, “Dog Bites Jefferson County Sheriff’s Arm?” Pit bulls are mistaken for mean, fighting dogs. They can actually be a loyal and sweet breed – they are my favorite.

If a golden retriever bit a sheriff you would not point out the breed like you did for the pit bull. They don’t need any more bad publicity. We need to work together to change the way people think about pit bulls so we can save them instead of making people more scared of them.

Many pit bulls are euthanized because of people like you. You should write an article about the next Chihuahua who bites someone.

I’m not sure which paper this appeared in, but kudos to the writer!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Another Dangerous Pit Bull

January 18, 2017

Pit Duckling Bunnies

Since I shared that story a week or so ago about the Pit Bull that attacked when he was forced to wear a sweater, I feel like I have to show how sweet they can be. I hate putting out bad publicity about a breed that is so misunderstood, so I may be going overboard in the other direction.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
