Blake is doing very well! He lives to play. I’ve been buying the highest-end, most indestructible Kong toys that are made, and they last him about a month. Maybe six weeks, tops. He has the jaws from
Blake spends most of his time doing everything that I do. When I
watch TV, he lays on the couch with me. When I work around the house,
he follows me from room to room. When I go errand-running, he rides
shotgun in the truck with me. He even follows me into the bathroom
and lays by the door until I’m done. For a while, he would follow me
into the shower. He was getting a bath every day. Now he’s content to
lay outside the glass shower doors and be a peeping tom. Saturday is
bath day for him now.
I was crating Blake while I’m at work, but now that he’s potty-trained
he has the run of the house. He sleeps on his own rug at night, right
beside the side of the bed that I sleep on.
Blake is a STRONG DOG. He weighs 91 lbs now, and he is 100% muscle and determination. I’m a big, fat guy – 242lbs and 6’3″. If I lay down
flat on the floor with Blake’s tug-of-war rope, he can scoot me across
the living room.
Blake is truly a humorous dog. He gets those screwy pit-bull
expressions on his face. His ears never know which direction to point
in. His tail occasionally clears off my coffee table. He’ll go get a
GIANT drink of water, then come find me and let out a big, beefy burp
that makes his lips flap. It’s worse when the burp flys out from the
other end. I feed Blake Pro-Plan Salmon formula. It seems to not
bother his digestion like some of the other food does. Less digestive
disturbance = less gas. That’s a good thing. Blake can clear a room.
In short, Blake is a loyal, energetic, screwy dog who is 100% “male
Pitbull”. Exactly what I wanted. We’re to peas in a pod.
I’ll try to take some pictures later tonight and send them.
Blake is currently in the shelter. His time will be up when the shelter is full unless he finds an adoptive or foster home.
My Story: Big Bad Blake, here! I’m JOKIN’! I’m really just a big sad, lonely, baby who could really use your help. I just love people & I even had some kids hugging on me & laying across my back the other day. It was great to feel their love & gentleness.
I’m about 1 year old, behave quite well, love to take walks & really love to play. I’m really getting used to this mushy hugging & petting thing, too! Oh, yeah, I’ve also learned how fun it is to take rides in the car so – when you come to get me; I’ll definitely be ready for a “road trip”.
I must be totally honest, I have one fault – I do not do well with other dogs. I’m trying very hard to over-come this aggression I feel around some of them, but for now, until you can help me with this problem, it would be safer if I were the only dog. You know, kind of like the “King of the Castle” – except for you, or course!
My dream is for a very kind, understanding person to save me! One who will teach me right from wrong & love me unconditionally.
My nightmares still consist of the past year of my life, spent on a log chain behind my owner’s home. There was no place to get warm & barely enough food & water to survive. I just don’t think I could bear to live like that again!
Could you be that special person who would give me the chance in life that I deserve? I sure have a lot of love in my heart to share it with who will open their heart to me. Do you wanna’ share a fun & happy life together FOREVER? I’m waiting!!
