I have a picture of him eating popeyes somewhere around here but here's a bacon and egg sandwich for now.

This website was made in the late 1990s (when she was still around) and has not been updated for quite a while, so it's a bit old-school (with frames), and pictures were scanned in lower resolution (450 x 300 pixels at best).
Co-Founder@HostHideout. Profoundly influenced by #Bauhaus, @Nameslave unrepentantly embraces #Minimalism with a bias for functionality, color theory and pixel precision: a #multimedia messenger in the McLuhan sense. His totally irrelevant M.Ed. dissertation examines Organizational Culture and Change Management. He also likes Patrik Ervell, Wong Kar-wai and IKEA.
Officially, he's a Staffordshire Bull Terrier but if you ask me... there's been a Pitt in the mix a few generations down the line!
Got a lot cuter photographs than that, too. He gets himself into some shapes and positions. I do wonder if he should have been cat to be honest.
Well whatever he may be labeled as, he is adorable! I've got quite the soft spot for pits. So many of them have incredibly hard lives just because of the way they were born. My dog Harvey (the post above yours) is a pit mix I got from a local animal shelter. He is the sweetest, most intelligent, most loyal dog you will ever see (of course, this could all just be through a mother's eyes.) He is almost 75 pounds and thinks he is a lap dog!
All the dogs I've had have been rescued including Rocky. I got him as a 5 month old pup.. he was rescued from a male owner who used him as a football. He has a permanent scar above his left eye from a particularly nasty blow. Staffie's have a bad name in this country but I like to think Rocky is good example. Everyone who meets him falls in love straight away, even people who have been attacked by Staffies previously. I have one friend who comes round just to see Rocky... and ignores me completely!
I have a soft spot for all 'dangerous' dogs, not because they're considered macho but because they're usually the ones that you can have the most fun with and I feel there's more of a loyalty from these breeds than perhaps some others. I'm not a fan of pampered dogs or little ankle biters.
What annoys me the most is if a tiny little dog nips you or barks a lot etc it's considered funny or cute. If it's a larger breed dog or (heaven forbid!!?!) a 'dangerous' dog they're immediately labelled and at risk of being put down. In the dog world, there is absolutely no difference between the actions of the two - the smaller one wanted to kill and eat you just as much as the other.
Forgive me, on a rant. Don't get me started on the whole 'dangerous' dog crap. ARGGHH.

Wow what a horrible thing to do to a dog. That's what you have to love about pits/staffies/whatever... they're resilient dogs and always have open hearts. Some of the Michael Vick dogs (not sure if y'all heard much about that, but it was big news over here) are actually used as therapy dogs for children now. If I went through anything like what Rocky went through, I wouldn't be quite so forgiving and ready to trust other people again.
And yeah, I get the same way about the "vicious" breed dogs. Didn't mean to hijack the thread!
