The story goes, these two pit bull bulls became feral (a dog that has escaped domestication and returned partly or wholly to a wild state) weeks after Hurricane Katrina had passed, they were hungry and attacked the Bull. Photo’s we’re captured by a reporter for the Sunday Telegraph who eventually flagged down National Guardsmen who shot and killed both dogs.

Posting this for all to see, this isn’t to shame anyone but to continue to educate.

.

.

On my stories I posed a question (watch the story again to see for yourself), is it ok for the puppy to lay down even though I told her to sit/stay after a minute or so into the command but I didn’t correct her. Was this OK?

.

.

It was ok, which is why all that answered “YES” said so. Part of the training is to also teach the puppy PATIENCE. A patient puppy will grow up to be a more patient adult and will happily remain on a longer sit as it gets older, wiser and trained/conditioned for the command.

.

.

Lastly I’d like to add, all those that answered YES are clients of mine. So thank you to all of you guys for remembering the training we’ve done with your dog! For those that still don’t understand, DM me and I’ll explain in more detail or just train your dog with me and you’ll get all my expertise of training for your dog! ✌🏽

I don’t know the year this picture was taken but it caught my attention. It’s safe to say early 1900’s? What’s important to note is that this picture was most likely taken during a time that some of the greatest fighting dogs that lived were around, bred by “bulldoggers” that kept to themselves and hardly would have dealt with anyone from the public.

.

.

What is known about “old timers” is they hardly bred nor studded their dogs for money, nor did they sell to the general public. They shared or traded dogs with each other since to them this was a competition of sorts, a sport where dogs were the players that they loved and respected, the same way we cherish our pets today.

.

.

I know this may sound foreign to those that view “dog fighting” as cruel and inhumane but it was a part of history, American Pit Bull terrier history that is today a marker of the breed. I’m in no way perpetuating dog fighting, but relaying to the reader that at one time this breed held the respect of everyone from politicians to presidents to celebrities and the general public.

.

.

What has changed are the people who own the breed and the media circus whom perpetuates a despise of them. I’d rather not use cliches but make things clear for those that don’t understand, “educate yourself before your discriminate”

.

.

With all that said, this picture features several dogs with handlers holding them side by side and obviously the dogs are not bothered by the presence of the other dog. I may catch some flak for this post but I don’t care, it’s how I feel and love and respect the breed through good and bad times.

A large farm, cattle, catch and fighting dog is one that usually is in top shape. One that is agile and lean, today the dogs although beautiful in their own right has lost some of that due to the “bigger is better” ideals that some breeders have adopted.

Very few breeds have gone through the years with changes that favor them, the #poodle is one of those breeds. A water and gun dog, it’s coat is typically what makes this breed standout most. Swipe (left) and see the corded look of hair versus the blown out look today. The latter was initially thought to help the dogs float in the water while swimming.

February 18th is Presidents’ Day, so it’s only appropriate to talk about past Presidents and their dogs.

.

Records from a pharmacy in Springfield, Illinois in 1855 shows the purchase of de-worming medication under the name “Fido” by Mr Abraham Lincoln. Fido was known around town and had many admirers. He often accompanied Mr Lincoln on his walks about town.

.

“Fido,” by all accounts was probably a yellow lab mix, that Mr Lincoln decided not to take with him to the White House after he was inaugurated for presidency. Fido was left in the care of family friend Mr John Eddy Roll during this time.

.

Sadly a year after the tragic event of Lincoln’s assassination, Fido would meet tragedy as well. In 1954, Johnny Roll himself told Time Magazine: “We possessed the dog for a number of years until one day the dog, in a playful manner, put his dirty paws upon a drunken man sitting on the street curbing [who] in his drunken rage, thrust a knife into the body of poor old Fido…So Fido, just a poor yellow dog, met the same fate as his illustrious master – assassination.”

.

Today the name “Fido” is very popular for dogs, based on Lincoln’s beloved pet. So if you ever wondered how the name Fido became so popular, look no further. . It is almost as though Fido himself remains just as memorable in the dog world as Lincoln was throughout history. Today a few photographs survive of the dog and his owner.
