Hi Paula! It's been awhile. I don't get around here as much as before. Glad you all were safe too. Nitro is definitely looking out for you.

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

Oh no! I hope they were corralled and taken home. Be careful!

Tonight, we walked past where they had been spotted. Didn't see them, fortunately. I was so mad when I saw they had gotten out again, it's probably a good thing for them they didn't run into me.

I'm glad they weren't there.  Im worried though about if you run in to them again.  I still think a good pepper spray would be at least enough distraction to get away if you need.  Sorry,  i think there's a time you have to draw that line in the sand.  I love animals, you know that.  But you have to be able to take a walk and be safe.

If we had run into them last night, I was going to channel my inner Cesar Millan and let them quickly know who the pack leader is.

Somebody posted a picture of them yesterday morning running loose in the neighborhood on our next door site. I don't know how it ended; if the guy found them, animal control got them or what. I assume by now the guy has them back. 

I'll just have to stay on guard on our walks.

That's it David. I know that most of Cesar's training methods are considered outdated now, but our confidence and attitude still matters in my opinion. It can make a huge difference. Jim and I are runners and we often encounter loose dogs. Knock wood, getting all Cesar on them seems to help.

No more run-ins with those dogs, but I went ahead and ordered some bear spray. I was talking with a friend who lives part-time in Alaska. He says he doesn't go anywhere there without it. And if it's good enough for a bear, I figure it's good enough for a pit bull - without doing any long-term damage.

Yeah it's sad that you need to even go there but I understand. Paws crossed you never need to use it.

Yup, hoping I never need it. But I'll feel better just having it.

I know that has to make you feel more reassured (and it does us too)!  Now you can hopefully enjoy your walks now with peace and confidence.  

Would love to see a video of Baxter enjoying  his walk.  Bet he wags and walks proudly  with a lot of sniff stops. 

Have your parents entertained getting another doggy yet??  Send them our best. I know their hearts still hurt.

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
