Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving we at Our Pack have a lot to be thankful for. We have some wonderful dogs who went into happy homes. Some of them even have jobs.

We are very thankful that we have had the opportunity to help the dogs and give them a chance to be what they truly are inside no matter where they came from. We also want to thank the many wonderful people who have helped us to show these dogs for the loving creatures they are.

When I say give them a chance I mean allow the room and provide an environment that brings out what a their basic personality is. We can train dogs for behaviors but temperament is a very different thing. No one can positively reinforce me for loving my child for instance to GET me to do it, I just do.

In temperament correct Pit Bulls we have just that, a love that is not trained into but comes along with his heart. It's a love for humans that seems to go untouched even though our lil guys have met some of their darkest hours.
THEY are so thankful to have US which sometimes is startling and amazing when some have been let down so thoroughly by humans. I'm thankful for this. It's truly a Thanksgiving from both sides.

Here's to a safe holiday and I hope you can go home and hug your Pit Bull and give'm a big smooch, he'll be thankful!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
    And a shout out to the people who have/had doubts,fears but give these dogs a chance to show you who they really are.

    And to Leo.

    You`ll have the last laugh...I mean GRIN!

  2. I am thankful and grateful to Marthina and Mary for Our Pack. You have given many dogs the chance at a good home and great life and I am so happy to be part of the group to help these wonderful dogs.
    I wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

  3. I am astounded at their ability to trust and forgive. True lessons of life for us all. The day I started to fall in love with this breed, was one of the luckiest days of my life, for it was the beginning of a journey that has allowed me entry into the hearts of some of these beautiful dogs and has brought me into contact with some pretty amazing humans, too. I am thankful for both.

  4. Pibble Pal - I think that's one reason to be thankful for sure, that we get to show off these loving dogs.

    Cindy - I am definitely thankful for you in that you have been wonderful with the dogs. Helping Zoe achieve her therapy cert along with Cynthia is quite something and is very appreciated.You are also such a good person for Zoe!!

    Pam - I know how these dogs can change your life. That's how Our Pack got started. I'm glad you were touched as well.
    Happy T Day!
