Pit Bull in Wheelchair is Full of Awesome

First off, Piggy? I did not think this dog could be more full of cool, but she just is with that name. She probably snorts, like any good Pit Bull Pig would.

Second, can we get a great pig...I mean BIG, shout-out to the Salt Lake Tribune for two reasons: 1) They did a nice Pit Bull story and 2) They used Pit Bull in the title instead of Boxer (the dog is supposedly a Pit Bull Boxer mix).

Finally: "She decided to train Piggy as a therapy dog based a reaction she got while walking Piggy around her neighborhood a couple of years ago. A man in a wheelchair, whose legs were amputated after a climbing accident, saw Piggy in her cart and started visiting her. He said she was one of the few things that made him happy."

OMG, WHY DO YOU MAKE ME CRY? Keep on giving lots of love and being yourself, Piggy. You are one Very Good Dog.

Now how often do we get to enjoy nice, positive stories about Pit Bulls? NOT OFTEN.

So get your Pit Bull loving butts on over to the Tribune and leave a comment or write a letter. I've done it, HAVE YOU?!?

That's my mom's old work! She used to run the in-house school for the hospital before it got shut down by the district this year. I <3 Intermountain Therapy Animals, they do such a great job. So many of those kids are really, really far away from home and are probably really happy to see a dog. And the coverage is great too!

Maureen, it IS nice to positive pit bull news!

Jennie, that's so cool! Therapy dog work with kids in hospitals is awesome and so important. Few things can really brighten up a bed-bound kid's day more than a happy dog!
