Excerpt from José’s Essay about Pit Bull Wisom
Pit Bull Newsflash: We got some exciting news this week. Snowy’s book Pit Bull Wisdom was used at an UNO Charter School in Chicago, in a neighborhood where gang violence is all too common, to inspire and empower 7th graders to change their lives based on what they learned from Snowy’s life story. Here is one excerpt from a student named José on how he will change based on what he learned from Pit Bull Wisdom:
“Being yourself relieves you from the curse of pretending to be someone your’re not, and just like Snowy, she wasn’t a fighter, just a lover. So, why fought [sic] even though she wasn’t a fighter? Because her life depended on it. And unless your life depends on it, just be yourself and live life.”
Go José. This makes us smile a big ole Pit Bull smile.

Will she or won’t she be the next Nashville Lifestyles doggie Poopermodel?

She got to visit with her trainer and friend Jon Stolzer and she sure was a superstar. Many thanks to Cheekwood and Nashville Lifestyles for the great day!

Snowy preparing for her global book promotion tour
Agent Orange and Snowy, September 16, 2010
We miss you already you old scoundrel. Long may you run.
Just prior to beginning her treatment Snowy made an emergency cup cake delivery in the convertible to some less fortunate homeless Pitties
Sometimes bad things happen to really good dogs. Snowy is living proof. Despite all she’s been through we have another hurdle ahead of us that will no doubt test both of us but that I hope will also make us stronger and smarter. Despite being on a Heart Worm preventative Snowy has contracted Heart Worm. We don’t understand why yet but Julie is about as dogged as Snowy and she plans on getting to the bottom of this scientific mystery and then publishing the results.
Today is Day One of a two month treatment. Snowy got a shot containing arsenic in the back this morning. She is scared and in pain. She even crawled into the shower with Julie this morning and sat under the water just to be close to her as if that provided some relief from her pain. One thing we already know – Pit Bull courage is legendary. This too shall pass and there is no doubt Snowy will handle this next challenge with her trademark sense of humor, grace and courage. We both know that hidden inside Crises lay Opportunities and we’re both sniffing around to see what treasures we can discover…..
Snowy is very proud of her contribution to the interview!
Dr. Laurel Neme interviewed Julie today for her radio program The Wild Life. About 3-4 minutes into the interview Snowy makes a very important contribution so it was only right to share the link here! You can listen to Julie [and Snowy!] using the following audio link:
