Gentle Giant

Sorry about everything that is wrong with this photo, but damn the lighting, and full speed ahead.

These two guys were rescued during Thursday's thunderstorm. A friend of mine saved the pit bull, the pit bull saved the wiener dog. The little guy has a serious case of hero worship. You have a problem with pit bulls, tell it to the wiener dog. Be prepared for an argument.

  4. They're Laurel and Hardy of the dog world! Thank goodness they're not already at the Baldwin Park shelter, where they'll be "put to sleep" Has anyone put up a poster in George's Liquor?

  5. What happens when they are unchained? Looks like the big dog has an acolyte.

  7. For now, they're sharing a stall at Altadena Stables and the little guy jumps all over the big guy. They're leashed up so I could get a photo for Patch and a flyer. (The riding instructor is the one who rescued them; of the countless dogs she's rescued while I've been at the stables, don't think she's ever had to turn one over to the dog pound.)

  9. I think you have a pretty good eye when it comes to animal photos. Shoot them from the right angle and you have beauty - shoot them from the wrong angle and you have a narrative.

  11. Yep something went wrong, I'd say a sun flare but there is no sun. It's so damn cute I'm overlooking the other.

  13. Oh my gawd, if that isn't a genuine look of adoration, I don't know what is. How sweet is that?! So glad, the story had a happy ending.

  16. It's luff, true luff and it would be grand if they got adawpted together.

  17. It's a beautiful picture. Both dogs are breath-takingly handsome. But I have a soft spot for wiener dogs!

  18. "You have a problem with pit bulls, tell it to the wiener dog." Another poem in the making? You do have a way with words, not to mention perspectives. I just spent some time with my daughter's old, old Chocolate Lab, and I'm back in love with pooches again.

  19. Ditto on PA and Banjo!

    I think the pit is protecting the weenie from whatever that flare is!

    LOVE that they both have white blazes! Like Twins!

    Thankfully I'm too far away to come pick them up or they'd both be in my lap asap!

  20. Awww... you know I'm a fan of pit bulls, but they wouldn't all be sweet to wiener dog. That is one special gentle giant.

  21. I would take them both if I could. Hope they find where they need to go. The storm unrattled Scout too.

  22. Nothing wrong with that great photo! I've never known a PB that wasn't a sweetie...
    Love the look on that little dog's face. Hero worship!
