                                    1- It's okay to remain shower-free for long periods of time
                                    2- Shaking your ass does get attention
                                    3- Stalking is an acceptable behavior, esp. when food is involved
                                    4- Napping is good anytime of the day
                                    5- Non-stop talking will get you what you want
                                    6- You can actually sleep with only 50% of your body on the bed
                                    7- Daycare isn't just for kids

Who doesn't love a sweet, pocket pittie?
That is what you'll get with the lovely Gemmie,
and bonus, she looks pawtastic in a tutu!
Gemmie is currently being fostered by the founder of Stubby's Heroes
Pit Bull advocate and friend, Johanna.
Jo has this to say about Gemmie:

Gemmie is my foster dog through Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue
She is about 2-3, lives with other dogs, both female and male. 
She loves, loves, loves her ball and does not miss a meal! 
She weighs about 30lbs, is a petite Pittie 
and enjoys laying outside to just watch the clouds move. 
I love this little girl. 

For information on how to adopt Gemmie, please visit

She is currently located in the Atlanta, GA area.

Someone said, Beauty is only fur deep.
 They must've been talking about Bella the One Eye Beast.
She is beautiful both inside and out. 
B is the happiest, sweetest girl, with an eye that always sparkles.

The Beast has brought a smile to DogMa's face every day since.
So, to all you impawfectly pawfect pups out there,

Hi paws and peeps,
It's DogMa here. Been a bit under the weather with some sort of mutant sinus infection.
No worries, I'm on the upswing and Tutu Tuesday will be back this coming week.
In the meantime, check out this pawmazing story written by our pal Mr. Buddy Rose.
It is a touching, powerful piece that shows how love does not discriminate.
Buddy is a Pit Bull type dog.
If Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) existed in his town,
Buddy would not have been able to help this little girl.
Please give it a read and share with others how Buddy is a very good boy.
xoxo,
DogMa
                                              Sunshine & Me -- by Mr. Buddy Rose

Almost a year ago I met a little girl named Sunshine. She was very, very shy and really scared of me and my older sister, Mollie the Mini-Schnauzer. When I first met her, she hid behind her foster parents and would not come close to me. After seeing her several times, I realized her life was a lot like my own.

You see, in June of last year, Sunshine was a foster child in the care of my neighbors. She’s a beautiful little 6-year-old whose life had not always been the best. Neglected, possibly abused, Sunshine had been taken from her biological mother by the courts. She suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I started seeing Sunshine pretty regularly on my walks and slowly, so slowly she learned she could toss me treats and I would catch them. Soon, she would learn to feed me treats from her hand. Later, she would sit on the grass with me and pet me or I would roll over and she would give me tummy rubs. Her foster parents said that after she saw me or spent time with me, she would calm down and not be so scared. Sunshine does not care that I am a pit bull, she just loves me. She gave me a nick-name. To Sunshine, I will forever be her “Football-Head.”

I gave her a framed picture of me which she keeps on her night-stand. She tells me she kisses my picture every single night and tells my picture, “I love you Football-Head.” I gave her a necklace with my picture on it. She has her necklace on every time I see her. Her foster parents say she can’t wear it to school but as soon as she gets home she has to put her “Football-Head” necklace on.

For almost a year there has been a lengthy court battle. Sunshine’s foster parents wanted to adopt her & some of Sunshine’s extended biological family was not happy about this adoption. During this time, I would visit Sunshine a couple of times a week – or if she needed me, she would come to my house and visit me. Sunshine and me, we didn’t care about any legal processes. We just wanted to play or sit in the grass.

Sunshine talked about me in court.  I guess she talked about me so much that her foster dad finally had to tell the judge that “Football-Head” would not be able to testify because dogs are not allowed to testify in adoption cases. I really don’t think I would have to say anything in court, just hanging out with my friend Sunshine should be enough for anyone to see how much we love each other.

After a very lengthy court-battle and saying good-bye to Sunshine several times because we thought she would not get to stay with her foster parents, this story has a happy ending. I will get to see Sunshine all of the time now. Sunshine was adopted last week by her foster parents – my neighbors! Because of me, Sunshine may one day get her own PTSD dog to help take care of her. Until then, she has me.

I am not a Therapy Dog or a Service Dog. Who knows? Maybe one day I will be. For now, I yam just very, very happy to be Sunshine’s Football-Head.

I yam Mr. Buddy Rose and I yam a very good boy.
