SWEETHEART PIT BULL

Wally the pit bull surprised me the other day when we went to the pet store together. They were having a sale for cats and kittens. When Wally met a little kitten at the checkout line, he gave it lots of kisses on the feet and face. Everyone in the pet store loved watching Wally give a kitten love. Sometimes Wally surprises me on how sweet he is.

DEMON CHIHUAHUA

I saw this video that reminded me of how my pit bulls interact with my miniature poodle. In this video, a demonic chihuahua picks a fight with a pit bull, but the pit bull is being such a sweetheart and good sport as the little creature pesters him. This is just like how my miniature poodle acts alpha towards my pit bulls. She would growl and snap at them, but my pit bulls (God love them) remain good as gold and give her kisses. My poodle’s nasty attitude earned her the nickname “queen bitch from hell”.

INSPIRATION: MY BOO BEARS

Because I love my pit bulls more than life itself, I decided to include them in my fantasy series. When I updated Numen the Slayer, I made them minor supporting characters that pretty much always accompany the kennelmaster’s daughter Lucille (who I named after one of my deceased German Shepherds). While normally raised and trained as hunting dogs, these hounds also assist the main characters in combat situations. I thought it would be fitting to put my pit bulls in the story because dogs were commonly seen in medieval times. The type of medieval hunting dog that resembled my pit bulls the most was the mastiff, which makes sense since all three of my pit bulls have mastiff in them. Mastiffs were specifically bred to hunt wild boar and their purpose was to hold the pig by either the ears or the back of the neck and hold it down while the hunter finishes it off.
