Dog Song Saturday: Pit Bull Rescue Woman by John Shipe

It's Saturday and by now you know what that means:  time for a dog song!  Today's song is Pit Bull Rescue Woman with John Shipe.  Very cool song which is accompanied by really wonderful photographs that were sent to Shipe by real life Pit Bull rescue women from around the world.

The lyrics and music for Pit Bull Rescue Woman were composed by Shipe and John Grimshaw.  Shipe offers one caveat regarding the lyrics.  He notes that he expects an outcry regarding the line:  "She's good with a tranquilizer dart."  He gave consideration to replacing it, but confesses that since he is first and foremost a songwriter, he couldn't resist a clever payoff rhyme.  Plus, the line is intended to refer to using a tranquilizer dart on the bad boyfriend, rather than a naughty canine.

My favorite line of the song?  "Saving the world one dog at a time, yes that's her art.  She's a Pit Bull Rescue woman, she aint' for the faint of heart."

So, you know the drill.  Grab a dog.  A pittie if you've got one, though any dog will do.  Sit.  Stay.  Enjoy Pit Bull Rescue Woman and celebrate Pit Bull rescue with all of us here at For Love of a Dog.  Note:  the lyrics are available on our Dog Songs page.  You might want to have a listen to Pit Bull Blues, another barking good song about Pit Bull dogs by John Shipe.
