I took a lot of pictures as I took Muttley for his twice daily hike
my 2.5 acre "nature preserve", with a newly cut trail down to one of two
streams that converge in the shade of huge Tulip trees and other
Muttley has helped me enjoy these walks and he encourages me to stay
active. As you can see in the last pictures, at the end of the walk he
smiling, then did a ROTGG (Roll On The Grass Grinning), and then snoozed
peacefully in my bed.
BTW, be advised "Never Kiss a Dog on the Lips". (Hear that, SNL Andy?)
Muttley has been eating some of the Poison Ivy that is found all over my
property. Maybe he's also part goat?
The pictures are on:
Looking at your pictures makes my eyes bleed.
Is that a prong collar around Muttley's neck? Riding down that low on
You still can't even take your own dog for a walk around your own
property - without having him on a leash?
I use the prong collar along with his choker chain and regular collar. I
try putting it high on his neck, but after he yanks and rolls around a few
times it becomes twisted up. It gives me better and safer control when he
wants to chase after deer, foxes, rabbits, or other critters he sees or
hears. It is unfortunate that I can't allow him to run unleashed. I have
cleared much of the meadow so that now I might be able to put up a fenced
exercise area where he can run.
Even with better training, it may be irresponsible for me to allow him to
be off leash. Reading more about the traits of Pit Bulls, on the website
www.badrap.org, it seems likely that some of Muttley's behavior may be due
to some PBT breed traits, and according to the website it is usually not a
good idea to allow any possibility of unsupervised activity with other
Now, as for your bleeding eyes, "There's no Visine for that!"
Paul and PBT? Muttley
