Come and meet me and Granny Boo!

26 Feb

The kind folks at Long Live Cats and Dogs are holding an adoption event for Boo and me because we’ve been both looking for a forever home in… well… forever it seems.

C’mon down on Saturday March 2nd between 1-3 pm and come say hi! Address is 2255 East Hastings in East Van (2 blocks West of Nanaimo)


Feel free to buy me duck feet or other treats while you’re there *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

Thank you Meghan!!!!

I received a wonderful parcel from Meghan! Check it out! I’m such a pro by now when it comes to opening parcels. I’m so good at it, that my foster parents hired me as paper shredder, I prep all the cardboard for the recycling box.

In other news – I HAVE GRADUATED TO THE BIG BED! That’s right! I have matured a little over the last few weeks. I’m starting to know the difference between my toys and my foster parents’ stuff. I know I’m allowed to chew my toys but apparently chewing their stuff is baaaad. So…. They now trust me loose in the house for some time and I have been loose in the house at night because I just go and sleep under my foster mom’s duvet all snuggled up against her. She says I’m an awesome little bedbug and it’s really nice to have a warm little puppy under the duvet during those cold winter nights. Her only complaint – Apparently I snore. I also did one of my famous fart n’ dashes the other day. I tooted loudly under the duvet and then dashed out leaving my foster mom suffer.

I’m doing really well outside too. We took it really slow over the past 6 months until I was really comfortable and wouldn’t panic anymore. Now we’re expanding my comfort zone and although I’m a bit nervous, I don’t panic and look to my foster parents and canine siblings for guidance. I sometimes even ask to take a longer route now if I see one of my friends up the street. It no longer takes me 15 minutes to get out to the door or an hour just to go around the block. My foster parents often praise me and say that I’m a very brave girl.

I’m still looking for my forever home. My foster parents wish they could keep me but apparently “strata” (whatever that is) says that they are only allowed one permanent dog. I suggested that they send Charlie away and keep me instead but they said that he’s still their #1 and that they are responsible dog owners. They are buying a lottery ticket every week though ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you are interested in adopting me, you can find more on the Bully Buddies website

Btw – My foster mom also posted some other videos and pictures of me on the Bully Buddies FB page. Her computer still has a virus and she doesn’t like to type a lot on the laptop so we’ve been more active on FB lately than the blog.

Happy New Year everyone!

My resolution for 2013? To find my perfect forever home!

Have you seen my oh so charming and funny way to get from a down to a sit? Now that my legs are feeling good, I like to always add a little hop ๐Ÿ˜€

Look, a Reinbull!

Or maybe a Pitdeer?

I’ve been wearing my antlers for the last 2 days now when I go outside for a walk around the neighborhood. My foster mom said it’s an excellent ice breakers and makes people fall in love with me and Pit Bull type dogs. It totally works! I get so many nice comments when we’re out and about and some people even asked if they could take a picture. I’m an excellent ambassadog!

Today my friend Miyeko stopped by and she bought me this awesome collar that goes nicely along with the Christmas theme and now people can also hear me when I come because of the bells. AWESOMESAUCE!

It’s a party!!!

10 Nov

I love me a good party. My puppy friend Kuttu down in Texas turned 10 a few days ago and his lovely family treated him to whipping cream.

I told my foster mom that we HAVE TO throw a little party in his honor. Of course with WHIPPING CREAM. I mean HELLO!?! WHIPPING CREAM!!!!

This waiting is torture!!! The anticipation is killing me!

It’s coming, I can almost reach it!

Picks 366a

Ooops. Hehehehe!

Hi guys!

I’m sure you all noticed how I LOVE to hang out on the back of the couch. Comfy, great view… How could anyone NOT love it!?!


So today as I was sitting there, my foster mom all of the sudden figured it would make a great photo op if she took pics of me while laying right underneath me.

Oh hi there!


AWESOMESAUCE, right!?! Screw you ceiling cat, hello ceiling Pit Bull!

My foster mom was giggling about this first pic, so she decided to get a few more and get my attention by dangling a cookie in front of my nose. It sure got my attention!


Well, it turns out I can only take so much teasing before the drooling starts. See the little drop forming near my nose? Yeah looking back it was all oh so obvious.


So. Uhm. Yeah. Gravity. Drool. You do the math. Look closely. Yeah. There it goes.






I’m not sure we’re going to play that game again, I heard my foster mom mumble something along the lines of “Well, that was stupid”.

Happy Pit Bull Awareness Day!

27 Oct


I hope you’re doing well! I’m doing great!!!!

Still in my foster home waiting for my forever home! We’re in no rush, we just want to find that perfect home for me.

It’s been raining a lot but you know what – I’m doing alright! Last year, I refused to go outside. I’m still not fond of it but I’m a big girl now and I can do this! I actually have been doing really well! I used to freeze at the door and sometimes it took my foster parents 5 minutes just to coax me to the sidewalk but nowadays I run right outside. I also walk right off the property and go for walks willingly. I still like it better indoors but I’m starting to have fun outside.

We went for a long walk this morning, hoping to spread some love about Pit Bulls. Funny enough the only people we encountered in the rain were other “bully breed” people, a man and his lovely Bull Terrier that he rescued from Ontario and my BFF Stella the French Bulldog with her mom.

Now we’re snuggled up here in bed. My foster mom said that if I’m good and blog, I get to have a treat.

So…. can I have my treat now pretty please!?!


One year ago….

4 Oct

I was a wee tiny puppy who arrived here in my foster home. I was terrified of people and terrified of dogs. I was malnourished and suffered from a broken pelvis, two shattered femur heads and external injuries.

This is me one year later:


I’m HAPPY! I love people, I love dogs. I’m at a perfect weight. My pelvis and external wounds have healed and both of the shattered femur heads have been removed and with it, the pain is gone. I’m still a bit scared outside but I’m now going for walks readily, even without my canine siblings.

It means that I’m officially up for adoption!

Bully Buddies, my foster family and myself are not in any rush to “get rid” of me. We are looking for that perfect forever home for me.

You can read more about what we’re looking for on my adoption profile on

In other news…

Can you please help my friend Bev get a butt tattoo? “Butt tattoo” you ask? Well, let me explain:

My friend Bev runs West Coast Rottweiler Rescue. They are going to have a pub night fundraiser on November 17. They are also starting a new fund, the JAYDA’S LEGACY FUND. Jayda’s family found themselves with huge vet bills from complications of a surgery preformed at a local hospital. They were at a stage where they just couldn’t go on without help. When we heard of the problem WCRR decided to try to help. Jayda is recovering and will be fine. But WCRR has decided to continue to raise funds in her name. All the funds in Jayda’s Legacy will be earmarked to help dogs whose family can no longer continue their care.

If WCRR can raise $1500 for Jayda’s Legacy Fund by November 17, my friend Bev has agreed to get a tattoo that says “PROPERTY OF WCRR”. Yes, she is THAT dedicated to animal rescue! Two years ago, she agreed to have a pie smashed into her face and last year she shaved her head (see pics here).

So let’s get Bev her butt tattoo, please donate towards the Jayda’s Legacy fund! You can donate through the CanadaHelps WCRR page.

You can find out more about the West Coast Rottweiler Rescue by checking out their website.

Anyway, back to Bully Buddies business:

My friend Luna is now also ready for her forever home after receiving lots of TLC in her fantastic foster home


Luna’s adoption profile:

My tiny foster sister Boo is also *still* looking for a forever home as well!


She stole that bully stick from me!

Her adoption profile can be found here:

My foster mom also decided she’d like to grow pickles on her patio:



Somehow I don’t think that’s how you grow pickles ๐Ÿ˜‰

And this is the view she gets when she’s trying to read in bed:


Usually my foster brother joins me and then we play inches in front of her face. It’s a lot of fun!
