Hello all.

My name is Bryan and i live in NJ about 20 min outside of NYC. Currently i own 2 PB's my new male Cuda who is just about 1yr 3mo old, and Noodles our female whos about 10yrs.

Cuda is a big (100lbs) Gottiline blue (I know I know, But i didnt know jack about BYB's and the sort until recently). He earned his CGC at 7 mo's and passed his therapy dog test at 1yr 2 wks.

Noodles is my g/f rescue pittie. Shes a snobby little bitch but we love her.

Over the years my family has all been dog people. We've owned 2 GSD's, 3 Goldens, on our 4th pittie, 2 mutts, and a husky.

Im quite happy i found this place as it seemed like all the good people were gone from "the other place" or they just werent supplying the same input they used to.

Seeya online,

Bryan

Well i first learned about the breed when i was abut 11 and my step brother happened to acquire one. He couldnt keep it where he was staying so it lived with us. He was such a loving dog i couldnt believe it.
After that i got my first female who was my little girl. She passed at 8yrs from schirrosis(sp?) of the liver.

Here some pics of Cuda as a pup

Here he is at about 5.5 mo's

Here he is at about 10 mo's

Here he is on our vacation in Cape Cod on a whale watching trip. Him and the kid never met but they were best buddies after about 2 minutes.

Ill post more in a little while as im d/ling them off my digi at the moment. going to take a while though theres alot of them.

Thanks again for the kind welcome

Thanks Bunches.. Yeah hes def. BIG!!! Im having a saddle made for him to ride him to work. Going to try to cut my fuel costs. you know the price of gas nowadays. might as well get some use out of those 45$ bags of wellness.

Still working on upping more pics. more of his recent ones anyway... Although i have been slacking on the picture taking lately so most of his stuff is at least a few months old.

He's so sweet looking! How'd he like whale watching? I think that Wally would probably freak out on a boat . . . then again I freak out on boats so that wouldn't help much . . .

Thanks again all.

As for the whale watching i think he would have enjoyed it more if there werent soo many people on board... But everytime the narrator pointed out a whale on a side of the boat everyone went running over to that side of the boat. Kepping my dogs safety first i immediatly moved him to the other side of the boat so noone would step on him by mistake incase they lost their balance from the boat rocking and moving. Other than that we had a blast.. Cape Cod is a great place to visit with your dogs. Theres a bunch of activities you can do with them including taking a small plane to nantucket. theres a few resaurants that allow dogs in the outside seating area and they even bring the dogs their own bowl of water. the place we stayed was in Hyannis Port called the Simmons Homestead Inn. while i was there at the B&B there had to be at least 8 to 10 other dogs staying there with their owners. Almost everyone was very responsible and all the dogs semmed to have fun. The owner of the place didnt mind the dogs staying in your room while you were out as long as they were civilized while in there. The only problem is that he owns like 8 cats. Most of them know to stay away from the main house though. Cuda doesnt mind cats at all so i didnt have any problems with him.

Adios for now..

I can't believe you brought him on a whale watch!! That's amazing!

He is really gorgeous, and if I were on that whale watch, I'd probably look like the kid in the picture with him, lol . . .

If you ever go to Provincetown, you can take whale watch boats out of there and alot of the restaurants don't mind outdoor dining with dogs. There are lots of pitbulls around Provincetown in the summer.

Cape Cod is pretty pitty friendly, so far.

WELCOME!! :)

i met cuda last year at the wayne day event. he is a stunning dog, and has beautiful eyes.. you might want to keep him onthe slim side to protect his hips from hip displasia too.

The funny part about the kid was that his own dog was on the boat too. he had a golden but didnt seem to click as well with the golden as with Cuda.

Thats where we went out of Provincetown. i must say though that it didnt seem like many of the people were to pittie friendly. i got more dirty looks than i usually do walking him. Then again theres probably a Chit-Load more pitties here in north jersey than there are in Cape Cod.

Yeah ill be stepping up the training program this summer.. Didnt want to do too much with him last year becuase he was still growing soo much and soo fast. He did get to chase me on my dirt bike a few days though and loved it. This year were going to be go up the hills down the hills up the hills down the hills.

Also i have to head over to cardio-pet to get his hips x-ray'd for PennHip in a few weeks.

Welcome!


Thats where Cuda came from. But more from the old Plymouth Barracuda. Im a car guy at heart. My previous pitties name was Lexxus. Had to through the extra X in there though just for Chits and giggles.
