I love my pitties
I own three pits and love them to death. Everyone sees them as vicious beasts that will tear strangers apart, but that's not the truth.
If someone were to break in to my house, the pits would more likely lick them to death then they would ever bite them. I've always said that instead of being the fierce protector, my dogs would be the ones holding the flashlight for the burglar!
They always love to snuggle with me and think they're lapdogs, even though they range in weight from 50 to 70 pounds. I was nervous when I got my first one as a pup, but ever since I named her Sadie, I knew that I would never own anything but pits for pets for the rest of my life. Soon after I got my two other girls, Princess and Bambi.
Bambi is my youngest pitbull and got her name from a long and somewhat hilarious story.... Soon after I got her I went ice fishing and had intended to leave her with my husband on the shoreline in a nearby dog-friendly park. (My other two were with a relative.)
I was setting up the ice shack when I heard an insistent whining from somewhere nearby. Looking around, I see Bambi in the front seat of my car. She had snuck in when I wasn't looking just to be with her mommy! I laughed and let her out, momentarily forgetting I was in the middle of a frozen lake. She instantly began scrambling helplessly and giving me a sad puppy-eyed look that made me laugh even harder. The fact that she was stressed wasn't what was funny, don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not that kind of person. It was just that she was the perfect picture of Bambi when he first discovered ice, legs splayed and all.
I lifted her into the car again and drove her back to my distressed husband. He had been frantically searching for her for a good ten minutes, and had been just about to call when I rolled up.
We had been recently trying to find a name for her, too. We hadn't been able to find a name that exactly matched her personality, and Bambi fit her perfectly. I don't know what I would do without my pits.
