Hi Marsha,
nice images, you always have good taste and your son is a great photographer.
As for the pittbull, I have to disagree and think it is dangerous to promote this kind of image of the worst dog on the planet. There is a reason why this dog is not allowed in the Netherlands and the horrific injuries it can cause to a human being are terrifying as no other dog can bite that way. Perhaps this dog is kissing the rabbit before he eats it or is extremely full but regardless, it is a fact that this is a breed that should not exist. Recent attack on a baby here in calgary was a pittbull again and besides, people in North America are absolutely not in control of their dogs unfortunately, treating them as equals simply doesn't work, somebody has to be the pack leader and usualy it is the dog which is a problem... but with pittbull biting and NOT LETTING go I can't imagine dealing with that and watching somebody suffering like that. I am sorry, but often going for a walk with my son I have to fight off a dog trying to attack us because the owner is useless and if there was a pittbull even I would be scared. And probably in huge danger. Therefore, this is upsetting to me seeing such a perception on your blog ... this is not reality.

hugs Z

Zaneta, I am going to research this. My experience is limited, I agree, with this breed. I appreciate your heart-felt comment so much. What does everyone else thing?

Can't wait to see your son's post! Your pedi looks great, and I love the shoes!
The dog and rabbit is just adorable, Marsha.

Maybe the dog is tasting the bunny, not kissing!
I think there are exceptions to every rule - both in the human world and canine. Caution is best when loving a pit bull, but there are those who are totally lovable.

Love the invitation only posts! My daughter does photography as a hobby while in college and I would love to read y our son's perspective about commercial photography, I will definitely forward it to my daughter! I have to send you a rescue video of a pitbull that really shows that you are right people have created the problem , not the dog!
Happy Monday!

I do agree people have created the problem, not the dog. On the other hand I understand Zaneta's concern - some breeds become very dangerous when mistreated or with wrong people. Pittbulls and other breeds (Dobbermans for example) need one pack leader.In some countries of Europe, they are considered as weapons. In order to possess them, you have to prove your credentials. Again, this is not a warranty as such because it's very easy to abuse of a dog or breed them illegally. Just think of illegal dog-fighting - illegal, shouldn't exist but they are there......Humans,who have been mistreated can and some of them will cause much more harm - only look at recent history.
I have seen such pictures also with felines taking care of baby monkeys after having killed the female monkey: Don't get me wrong - I don't know what happened to the baby monkeys it reality? I don't know as
nature and wildlife have nothing in common with fairytales.
Luckily, I can tell that I've met nice Dobbermans and even some pittbulls - first I had a glance at the owner of the dogs.
Lots of success for your son's perspective about commercial photography.

I have personally known a number of pit bulls and I know for a fact that people have created the problem with this breed. The "pit bull", otherwise known as the American Bull Terrier or the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, can be as loving a dog as say a Havenese (which I have). They are the biggest lap babies imaginable. The problem occurs when cruel, sick, twisted individuals abuse and pervert the breed. Certainly, they are a powerful breed. Unfortunately, that strength can easily be turned against them.
That said, I'm looking forward to tomorrow's post. Your writing always makes my day more beautiful.

Hi Marsha, I'm off for a pedicure myself and burnt orange sounds lovely. Chloe has a part time job as a dog groomer while she's completing her university degree and she now knows a lot about dogs and swears that the pits are loveliest, warmest breeds around. It's bad owners, not bad dogs she says. Looking forward to reading your son's post as I;m often do editorial work for magazines. :)
