Hi! Just wanted to say hello! I adopted Lucy from Michelle (forum owner) in October. I can not express how much I love this dog...she is just the best! The first week of "silent treatment" from my husband has been the most difficult hurdle. She found her way into his heart around the second week. Today, I caught them napping together on the couch! She is quite a character! We are truly blessed to have her! I never for a moment thought I would be the owner of a pit bull. Prior to owning Lucy, I had very little experience with the breed (have had 6 black labs in my 44 years) so admittingly had some hesitation. I have made it a point to find out as much as I can about Pit Bulls characteristics and have come to respect the breed for what they are. We won't be going to any dog parks, you won't see Lucy off a leash and I make it a point for Lucy to sit when anyone approaches us. The back yard fence is scheduled for the spring. I have found this forum very helpful training Lucy and understanding the breed. She is so loving it is such a joy to have her!
