It's funny though because growing up I always had small dogs, mainly Shih Tzu's, but when I met my husband I had to get over the whole fear of a Pit Bull. All I knew was what I was watching on TV, and living in South Florida, there are always dog fighting or dog attack stories and it 99% of the time a Pit Bull is involved. Being Ruccus' mom, and having to build a relationship with a breed you are fearful of, is a huge milestone. I still love small dogs, but there is something about a Pit Bull that just captures my heart now. Maybe because I have been so spoiled with how great Ruccus is that I just can't bear to think that I would never have another Pit Bull. This Sunday I will be going to a Luv-A-Bull event to see their dogs that are up for adoption, and I'm really hoping I can convince the hubby to adopt a new family member. And if not, then it just isn't our time to get a new dog. I am a bit conflicted though, Ruccus is our baby and he really rules the house and I don't know how happy he would be with a another dog in the house distracting our attention from him. Maybe I am over thinking it, but he's 11 now, and although he is still very much playful, he also likes his space and doesn't like to be bothered (even though I like to bother & annoy him because I know he doesn't like it, lol) So what to do? We will bring him with us and hopefully he will get excited to see all the pups and maybe just maybe we will go home with a little baby that needs a home. I'll keep you updated!
