I saw this video recently. It shows a Russian couple adopting a pet cougar named Messi. Messi was a beautiful and adorable cat with the personality of an ordinary house cat. The couple spoiled Messi rotten with good grooming, good food, and lots of love. Messi even had an older brother who was a hairless house cat. Whenever the couple took Messi on a walk, they would dress him up in pajamas. Overall, Messi was a wondrous animal to behold with a sweet and charismatic personality.
Here is a pet fox who was given good Thanksgiving food from his owner. This fox is so spoiled rotten and cute!
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.
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”.
I just tucked the Boo Bears in. Nice and cozy.
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.
Most people are afraid of either wolves or wolfdogs, but not me or my pit bulls. In fact, we have two wolfdogs at the dog park who are our BFFs. One is a large female who was bigger than either of my pit bulls. She was an unnaturally beautiful German Shepherd mix with a graceful walk and serene demeanor. Her owners named her after Arya Stark from Game of Thrones. My pit bulls were head-over-heels in love with her and flirted with her obsessively. They even ran together from one side of the park to the other, but she always left my pit bulls in the dust. The other wolfdog we see more often and he was just as beautiful as Arya. His name is Odin after the Viking god and All-Father. Odin is just as big as Arya except he is white as snow with golden amber eyes that are filled with ancient wisdom and spirit. Odin loves getting attention and he wrestles with my pit bulls all the time while also being a referee when other dogs are playing. One time I was sweet talking Odin while hugging him and he got so excited that he jumped up to kiss me and ended up squishing his nose against mine. I got into a sneezing fit for an hour. Overall, my pit bulls and I love wolfdogs with complete passion and we look forward to seeing our BFFs on our next visit to the park.
Here is my pit bull Wally and I cuddling.
I got my family’s third pit bull a new toy squirrel because she likes to chase squirrels so much. Little Macy Mae was very appreciative.
In addition to owning two pit bulls, I also own a desert tortoise named Speed. He just woke up from hibernation, had a turtle spa treatment, and had a hefty breakfast. One could argue that he is a labrador retriever in a turtle’s body because whenever anyone is near, he just walks right up to them begging for affection. Like my pit bulls, I also draw inspiration from Speed. Since my fantasy book features reptilian monsters, I am thinking of studying Speed’s mannerisms and the texture of his scales and incorporate them into my book.
