I live in an area where some neighbors do not care for their pets in a way I would call admirable and quite often dogs are loose and meandering around. This fellow's name is Roscoe and as you can see he is a Pitbull. Now not everyone likes Pits and I will admit that when he first ran up on my deck early one morning I felt all the tiny hairs on my body stand up on end. Turns out though he is a sweety! So along with 4 or 5 others who get loose from time to time, he heads right over here to see if there are any leftovers or kitty food. How do the cats feel about this? Well although they loved our  dog Lili, who passed away last December, they are not thrilled about these new usurpers of the domain. Cats do love their peace and quiet.  And dogs represent chaos! Happy Saturday everyone!


  1. aww.ain't that just the 'pits'!
    .happy Saturday for everyone but the cats!

  2. Hi Carmelina, yes the cats put up with quite a bit but then they pass it on to the birds and all's fair in love and war, huh :)lol

  3. What a sweetheart..he is super beautiful!

  4. He is a very sweet dog and I wish the owners appreciated him a little more.
    I still miss my girl Lili. We loved going for walks and the last year of her life I cooked all her meals. I would never have left her outside unattended, she was a wonderful companion!

  5. So sad when animals are negleted.He did the right thing coming over to you! He looks a gentle soul.

    Bellaboo :0)

  6. Yes it is sad and what is worse it seems in areas where people are not well educated it is even more apparent, it has made life hard at times but I am keeping the faith that the world can be a wonderful and beautiful place for all God's creatures! That's my prayer!

  7. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. Comments like yours inspire me to keep that "paintbrush moving" ^_^ My cousin's friend has a pitbull named Honey...and the name suits her well because she's as sweet as can be. I think sometimes they get a bad rap.

  8. So lovely to hear from you, thank you.
    I want to tell you a few guidelines that may help.
    Doesn't matter how long the dentist takes to take you tooth out as long as he she is gentle and keeps rotating it to losen from the sides. So pulling should be really easily. A good dentist will do slight tugs now and then during the process to see if the tooth is ready. But carry on with turning it in circular movements to losen more.
    If the dentist puts there elbow or knee on somewhere to act as a leverage. Tell them to stop immediately as this is too much pressure for the safety of your jaw.
    Ask about a special seaweed mix that is used to pack out the hole to help healing. I had this stuff which I don't know what it is called in Budapest two years ago and it is the only area that has healed fully with no holes. Or maybe taking seaweed herbal tablets while healing afterwards may do the same?
    The dentist that as been this good to me is called Theo at Access smile But he is in Budapest.
    I didn't know this when I went for the very first tooth out and the hospital dentist in uk.
    I am telling you every thing that this dentist didn't adhere too and caused my jaw to give way.
    Ask around for a good dentist.
    Hope I haven't put you off as a bad tooth can cause illness for you.
    With these little things it will guide you through safely.
    Ask the angels to help you.
    Loads of love!


  9. Hi Tina - thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. Yes we miss our babies when they leave home - however grown up they become!

    Re your next door dog - I'm more of a cat person, but I do think that some dogs get a bad press due to the way they're treated by their cruel or lazy owners. Here in the UK there is a real problem with pit bulls and similar breeds being trained by low types to fight each other in a very nasty way for cruel 'fun'. My sister breeds rottweilers and they are gentle creatures. She even got one of hers to Crufts ( THE top dog show in the UK) - but she (the dog) was too playful to obey 'silly' commands to leave a biscuit alone!

  10. I love Pit Bulls... I have yet to meet a horrible one. Unfortunately, as you know, the majority of horrible dogs, whatever the breed, is generally a result of their owners, and the poor dog suffers. Makes me so mad. Anyway, I hope your cats don't mind too much! My cats will tolerate my dog pack for short periods of time.. they are so refined compared to dogs aren't they!!!

    Thank you for your lovely comment over at my blog! much appreciated!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  11. Thank you both for the comments, the best thing we can do is pray for a better world filled with enlightened people who "see" the bigger picture!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and for leaving a comment. It truly brightens my day to read your thoughtful remarks!
