Can I help you with your Jacket?

AJ was playing with a 10-week-old Red-Nose Pit Bull puppy and teaching him doggy manners at the same time. Apparently the manners part kicked in pretty quickly because it didn't take long before the pup wanted to help AJ off with his coat. 😃

He's a pretty little brindle guy, but the owner got a bit annoyed with me when I laughed at him for saying his pup will grow to be 200 pounds. (10 stone, 90 kg)

That's a great picture. What a beautiful pup! AJ sure looks mighty handsome in his coat.

I love pits..they are are wonderful dog..wish folks treated them as well as they should be treated.

Great pic 🙂

Great pic, AJ! Don't you love it when people tell you stuff about dog breeds that is completely off-the-wall? And you try to correct them, they either laugh or get mad? Someone asked me once if Lana (my tri B girl) is a German Shepherd/Chihuahua mix!!! I laughed, and said no, she is a basenji, they told me I am making it up, there's no such breed!

I got frustrated when I took my b-girl in to get groomed and the groomer asked "oh is she a basenji mix." No she's a full blooded basenji. She just looked at me like yeah, right.. Well at least she had the basenji part right and didn't call her a terrier mix.

I get this all the time with my B mix, people say aww what a cute husky/lab mix or pit bull/terrier mix, just something not even close to what she is…i have people at the groomer look at me like i have no idea what im talking about....crap like this drives me crazy and just makes me realize that the general public is like 50 IQ points lower than the rest of us 🙂

AJ is most often compared to a Jack Russell. When I tell them he is a hound, I see the most incredulous looks on people's faces. It's actually comical.

Oh beautifull puppy, and nice AJ! Wish pit's where allowed here - I love the breed.

I ones got told my rough collie I had at the time was a beautifull girl, when I told him that the dog was a boy he didn't believe me…😕 Would think I knew the sex of my own dog... 🆒
