Two months ago my beautiful girlfriend, Kelly and her two dogs moved across the country to live with me. Villere and Rosa are their names. I call Villere, "Vill" for short, and I call Rosa, "Rosah." Let's start with Villere.
Villere is a bundle of joy. He lives for attention from people. This is why we are working towards getting his Therapy Dog certification. He is a show stopper. Seriously, anywhere we bring him everyone sees his big smiling face and they have to stop to pet him. Whether it's downtown Kent, or if we are shopping at Lowe's, he is like a magnet. I love it. I love how people are so accepting of him considering there is still such a misconception of the breed out there. One of Vill's favorite things to do is climb up on my lap while I'm working. This results in a little less work getting done, but I enjoy it. The last thing I am going to say about Vill is that he loves to give kisses. Kelly had warned me that both of "the blues" loved to do this. I've never been a big fan of having my face licked, but I allowed it and it brings him so much joy. And I admit it, it has grown on me. Okay, let's talk about Rosa now.
Here I am with my daughter Rosa. She is my sophisticated girl, and I love her. It took a little while but we've got a routine down now. Every morning when I walk out of the bedroom her little vibrating butt is at the door ready to greet me. From there I take her out where she quickly pees and poops just so she can run back inside and eat her breakfast. I first met Rosa at the New Orleans airport where she greeted me with kisses as soon as I got in the car. Yes, they both love to kiss. Rosa and I bonded right away. Something about her drew me to her. I think it was the look she gave me. The same look that she's giving the camera in the photo of her in my arms. How can you not love that face? Recently Rosa enjoyed her very first hike in the woods. I've included that photo at the bottom of this post. Talk about the best time of her life. She was just overwhelmed with joy. Here she is pictured with our other boy V.
I wanted to write this for a couple reasons. 1. I wanted to introduce my new dogs. And 2. I wanted to show that Pit Bulls are awesome. Try not to judge a book by what the media sensationalizes.
