Dog Song Saturday: Pit Bull Blues by John Shipe

Clarabelle - an adoptable dog in KCMO
  It's Dog Song Saturday at Talking Dogs and we're doing something we've never done before:  an encore presentation!  Way back in October 2010, we featured Pit Bull Blues song and dog music video in honor of National Pit Bull Awareness Day.

We decided, in light of all the Pit Bull dog news of late - like the recent Maryland Court of Appeals ruling declaring all put bulls (and pit bull dog mixes) "inherently dangerous" by virtue of their looks alone and that crazy Baltimore columnist, Dan Rodrick's uninformed comments declaring pit bull dogs "four-legged time bombs" that should not be allowed in public - to take a few minutes to visually and audibly, remind folks what great dogs are called Pit Bulls.

Even if you've heard Pit Bull Blues by John Shipe before, take a moment and enjoy it again.  Then pass it along as learning tool for those who are not informed.  And while you're at it, take a look at this blog post from Oh, Corbin:  You call me a Pit Bull like it's a bad thing.  Then pass that along, too.

Grab a dog.  A Pit Bull if you're lucky enough to have one, though any dog will do.  Sit.  Stay.  Snuggle with that dog.  Relax and enjoy Pit Bull Blues written and performed by John Shipe.

In need of even more Pit Bull dog musical treats?  Then fetch our August 2011 Dog Song Saturday blog post:  Pit Bull Rescue Woman - another original song by John Shipe that celebrates real life Pit Bull rescuers from around the world. 

Inspired to add a Pit Bull dog to your family?  Check out Clarabelle (above left).  She's a Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier mixed breed dog and available for adoption for the Missouri Pit Bull Rescue in Kansas City, MO.

  1. Hey it's Jet here. This song ROCKS! Just in time for the stuff going on in my neighborhood this summer... (Miami-Dade County)...

  2. I love pit bulls! I am so glad every time I see their advocates and creating of awareness about these lovely, sweet, friendly dogs! I never met a single pit bull that would be unfriendly. Usually, they just licked my face all over.

    Good luck and keep up the great work with your blog. Glad I found it.
