my Halloween angel

Cici does not like getting dressed up…

can you tell???  LOL

candy candy candy…

in the midst of Sandy, and all that is happening on the east coast, my beloved NYC, and NJ,  CT, etc., here is an amazing and miraculous and inspirational tale… a tribute


the location of my father’s old store…Canal Street… it was a dark , dirty and hole in the wall store… with a basement filled with rats…  and old used machinery…industrial equipment… that he bought and sold


Happy Halloween!!!

pumpkins and costumes and desserts, oh my

who else but Rachael Ray would have a pumpkin carved with her dog’s face on it???

some people are saying that wearing an Occupy Wall Street related costumes are THE cool costumes this Halloween…  people could dress up as a mean cop, banker, a corporation, a 1% greedy pig, clueless GOP politician, a cash cow and/or a protester…


Cici wanted me to let you know about the messages that she is considering to have on her signs for her costume:

I am the 1% of pit bulls that has a good home

walk a few miles in my paws…

humans judge me by my looks

sub-humans abandon, abuse, fight, and neglect me

sub-humans kill me

humans hate me because I’m adorable

humans say mean things about me

humans lie about me

sub-humans use me to pretend they are tough

pit bulls for peace

pit bulls against  fat cats

cici speaks: occupy the bed, gets better food than my mama, occupy the chair, occupy the fridge, hah !


please do not dress your dogs up like these people did on Wendy Williams show


Beware of these dogs, trick or treat…

a fun treat for any doggie snack time are these meaty cupcakes… for Halloween and other fall/autumn holidays, you could substitute sweet potatoes for the regular taters…


you can also make some Halloween dog cookies with pumpkin and peanut butter… you can substitute rice or other flour if you do not want whole wheat…


PLUS, you can make pumpkin chocolate recipes for snacks (for humans/kids)…YUM-O…


It is now time for the Pet Blog Hop thanks to Life with Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers, and Confessions of the Plume… this week fleeeeeew by quickly…  grab the code here

trick or treat?

most dogs would probably have a hard time choosing between tricks and treats… since they like to do both, EAT and do naughty tricks… Cici decided instead of taking a walk with me yesterday morning as she normally does, that it was better to run away and hide… what gets into that dog’s brain is beyond me… so she did not get her morning walk, nor did she bug me all day for a walk… maybe it’s because I am fixing up the garden??? nothing discernible yet… but I did give her a bone to gnaw on at some point and she seemed happy. She had taken my roommate for a walk for three hours the night before so I figured she was still worn out.

Whatever goes on in that polka dot princess head is beyond me but one thing I do know is that when it comes to treats, she is GUNG HO and all for them, healthy or not, as long as there is meat in the equation/ingredient list.

got healthy snacks for your Fido for Halloween???

you could try something delish from Mother Hubbard…. Cici has already pigged out on doggie cookies/biscuits … she thought that the Chicken and Apple ones were the best cookies she’s had in awhile… I liked the wholesome human grade and wheat free ingredients but Cici enjoyed the taste sensation…


Ground Barley, Ground Brown Rice, Chicken, Apples, Chicken Meal, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols, a natural source of Vitamin E), Cane Molasses, Turmeric, Eggs, Carrots, Garlic, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (a natural preservative).

Small bite sized biscuits that a dog does not have to chew up into little pieces.   Comes in eight flavors, BacnCheese, Veggie, and more.

am sure that she would love the peanut butter cookies too… and she enjoyed eating the tiny little bitties soft and chewy snacks, too… supposed to be used for training, but oh well… she was in taste testing dog mode so I went ahead and gave her some mini bits, too. did not want to risk her pulling anymore tricks on me.  One trick a day is enough.

happy halloweenie…

think it’s appropriate for halloween, a holiday where scary things go boo in the night, and some people are still afraid of pitties to share the links below plus our day at the mall.

today at the mall, cici got a lot of positive attention, as she usually does. she ignored five dogs, a really cute poodle, a huge dog of unknown breed, one poodle mix dog dressed up with antlers, they sniffed each other, and then there were two chi’s that were very loud and  cici barked back… guess who people looked scared of, uh huh, but the scariest boo moment was when this dyed pink poodle passed her by, cici’s tail went between her legs, she was seriously scared, don’t blame her…

it was also funny, people were standing in line wanting to pet her… typical comments: “she is adorable. is her name spot? she looks like the Lil Rascals dog, she is so sweet, calm. What a great dog. Love the spot on her head.”

tomorrow they will have a doggie dress up day, and we will NOT be there… I don’t dress cici up, she is a dog after all…

and if you still think pitties are scary, check out the links below:

which is the most vicious dog breed? dobie, pit bull, rottie, shepherd? http://www.cesarsway.com/dogwhisperer/episode-archive/season-2-episode-1

american pit bull terriers and staffies temperament tested nicer than beagles, toto, (cairn terrier), & lassie, (collie), http://www.atts.org/stats2.html

play the find the pit game, http://www.understand-a-bull.com/Findthebull/findpitbull_v3.html

What’s Up With That: Breed Specific Legislation


if you believe the headlines that pit bulls chew on children, infants, babies, then, you just don’t know the truth… pit bulls were bred as nanny dogs, to love children, to take care of and protect children…

cici loves babies, newborns, 3 months old, kids of all ages, she loves children…

ANY dog should be supervised, just like kids… and ANY DOG BREED can become unsafe if not socialized, if tied up 24/7 on a chain, brutalized and traumatized repeatedly. Animals, like humans, have feelings and will protect themselves from constant attack, eventually. Although, cici has been attacked by other dogs at least 5 times  and the worst she ever did was bark, growl, and hold a dog’s ear in her mouth (when three dogs were surrounding her barking, growling, snapping at her)…
