Pitbull Blues by John Shipe
the song on this site made me cry… it’s so true… the friendliest dog in town… wagging tail at the speed of light… all I want to do is sniff/lick your shoes/feet, but no matter what I do I’m accused of looking for a fight… pit bull blues…
The lyrics say it all:
Pit Bull Blues by John Shipe
People see me walking down the street they all run and hide.
I used to take it personally now I take it in stride.
I got nothing against no one I wouldn’t hurt a fly.
People seem to think i’m mean and here’s why, and here’s why…
I’m a pitbull, a big brown red nose pitbull, a tooth baring muscle bound pitbull, I look like I can tear the steel off a locomotive freight train.
People park three spaces away when I’m waiting in the car.
All the kids in the neighborhood they never walk through my yard.
And there’s a rumor floatin’ around the county that I ate three cats,
But I swear from the bottom of my K9 heart I didn’t do that.
Nooo I didnt do that.
But I’m a pitbull, a big brown red nose pitbull, a tooth baring muscle bound pitbull, I look like I can dig a hole through a concrete wall.
I got these pitbull blues all I want to do is sniff your shoes.
I aint no killer hound though I’m the friendliest dog in town.
The sheer sound of my bark can break through arctic ice.
Deep down I’m a pussy cat, I’m just trying to be nice.
In case you didn’t notice I’m wagging my tail at the speed of light.
But no matter what I do I’m accused of looking for a fight.
A pitbull, a big brown red nose pitbull, a tooth baring muscle bound pitbull, I look like I can crush a cannonball with my jaws….
cici met a new dog through the window, she jumped up on the a/c unit to say hello, to an unfixed male pit bull… wagging her tail and licking the window… she sooo much wanted to play… the other dog seemed friendly, too, it just wasn’t the right time for them to play…
here’s some pit bull info… from ohmidog and other sites…
Please be aware that “pitbull” is not a breed of dog. It is a term the
public uses to describe a k-9 with certain traits resembling a
American Pitbull Terrier, Staffordshire Terrier, or any other bully
A study done by the CDC showed that “pit bull type” dogs accounted for the majority of dog related fatalities in the United States between 1979 and 1996, though the study admits some limitations in its data. These attacks were proven to be by pit bulls that were highly under-socialized.
The American Temperament Testing Society shows a pass percentage of 84.3% for American Pit Bull Terriers. Still, a firm, even hand and early obedience training are best. They generally have a lot of energy and high prey drive ; they need exercise and stimulation in order to channel their energy properly and not become frustrated, bored, and destructive.
Being intelligent, athletic dogs, American Pit Bull Terriers excel in many dog sports, including weight pulling, dog agility, flyball, lure coursing, and advanced obedience competition. Some APBTs have been known to do well in schutzhund as well. Out of the 25 dogs who have earned UKC “superdog” status (by gaining championship titles in conformation, obedience, agility, and weightpull), fourteen have been American Pit Bull Terriers.
The American Pit Bull Terrier is a working dog, and is suitable for a wide range of working disciplines due to their intelligence, high energy, and endurance. In the United States they have been used as search and rescue dogs that save lives, police dogs performing narcotics and explosives detection, Border Patrol dogs, hearing dogs to provide services to the deaf, as well as general service dogs.
this is an adorable pit bull puppy named Lucy…
