We adopted a 6 year old pit bull. His name is Bodhi, as in enlightened one. (We didn't pick the name, but it is a good one.)
He is the first dog we've owned who buries bones! He buries them in the mud/mulch in the back yard. He digs up the bone a few hours later and brings his black covered with mud bone in the house. Yay, the drought is finally over in California.
When we put his leash on him, before we hold the other end, he picks up the leash in his mouth, and walks himself around the house? He will even pick up our other pit bull's leash and walk her around the house. I don't think she is amused.
He had a very slight hard to notice limp in his rear left leg. The vet wasn't concerned, asked if he could run okay, didn't order further treatment. Unfortunately last Thursday his back left side got bumped and he could barely put weight on that leg for 24 hours. Return visit to the vet and he's getting x-rayed in 3 days.
The vet said no walks until we find out what is wrong, so I am "forced" to sit on the couch with him while the other dog gets a walk, plus just sit with him to give him a little TLC. He loves to sit and snuggle on the couch while I read, watch TV, or feed my Allnurses addiction!
