    Cindy is a talker, she does the whole r-r-r-r-ooooo-ooo when she's happy. She is also precious about going out to do her business in the rain so will try to hang on - which means that on some nights she'll come sit by my bed and start going mmmMMM? mmMM? until I wake up and let her out. Sometimes I wish she'd just jump on the bed to wake me up, she must mm-mm for quite a while sometimes!

    They will always be "Kitchen dogs" to me because when I worked in boarding any SBT over 9 months of age was not put out in the exercise yards in social groups with the other dogs for reasons I'm not going to expand on here.

    So the staff would bring a staffy into the kitchen while they prepared the meals and medications for all the dogs. That gave them their social time and then in the afternoons they would be put out in the exercise yards by themselves.

    One old fella Oscar always knew when I was working and would carry on until I would bring him out and into the kitchen. The other staff told me he was quiet on the days I didn't work.

    But I didn't care, he was one of my favourites. You shouldn't have favourites but some of your regulars do become favourites. Another fav was a tiny old toy poodle that I would put down the front of my jacket as I worked whenever I was in little dogs.

    Angel doesn't talk either. She roo-roos at Chopper when she can't catch him when they're playing chasies and she roo-roos when someone comes home. It doesn't matter that she might have been sitting at my feet all day, when OH gets home she gives him a serve for being out all day! lol

    Hahahaha! I thought my dad was fibbing to me when he said 'it is the staffy howl' LOL!

    I was really surprised with the little one on the chain at the party. I walked past and I gave it a pat (OF COURSE, after first gaining PERMISSION! ) and she was a gorgeous girl! She was very strong too (She was a jumpy little one) something I didnt expect from such a lil PUP!

    Miss Bella is a typical girl. Chat, chat, chat, and then she sings sings sings, so mix all that together with the pei gargoyles and you have a choir!!

    Oh and sadly with regard to Melbourne and the SBT overflow, unfortunately is it very true, but worse are the SBT that had the owners who thought it a good idea to cut off the dogs ears with scissors. Fortunately the public is kept away from this spectical.

    The other breeds I constantly see are maltese and JRT

    Yikes!!!!

    I was going through a few rescue sites last night and was shocked at the number of JRTs and Maltese x (esp Maltese x Shih Tzus) that were on there.

    I guess its easier to re-home that when they are called staffy x's. If you call them Bull terrier, pit bull, pig dog or anything else, many ppl won't want them. There aren't too many (that I am aware of anyway, I could be very surprised to hear otherwise) who will give a pit bull a chance, because of the bad plugging they receive in the media. You alway hear about dog attacks involving them, but surely there are many more we don't hear about, that these dogs aren't involved in at all. I was bitten by a dog when I was walking one morning, few years back. Didn't look anything like a bull terrier. When I reported the attack nobody cared.
