...but in my defense, my internet activity overall has slowed down a lot.

Let's see... I'm Teal. I'm 27 years old, and I live with my husband and two rescued APBTs--Ruby and Chico--who try my patience everyday, but damn I love 'em. I'm located in the mid-Hudson Valley in NY, working as an associate editor for a newspaper (and as such, try my hardest to get as much positive press for my breed as possible, so far including a cover shoot, a front-page rescue story, interviews with rescuers, letters to the editor, random photo ops, honest coverage about BSL and bite incidents, etc.). There's more, but you'll just have to wait to get to know me. :D :D

Hey there Teal!! Glad you joined! What got you interested in the breed? Are Ruby & Chico your first experience with pit bulls?

In fact, when my husband and I decided we wanted a dog, we didn't know what breed we were looking for. I did a general search on petfinder only to discover how many more homeless pit bulls there were than any other breed. So I felt, knowing that, I couldn't not consider it. And that's where my research began, and meeting pit bulls and conversations and preparations and even more research. What really convinced me, though, was an hours-long conversation with Cydney Cross from Out of the Pits, before I even filled out an application to adopt a dog.

After we brought Chico home, I became more involved in advocacy and rescue, both with OotP and independently. Ruby was, a year and a half later, a perfect match for our family, and truth be told, she chose us.

They're my love bugs. But for some reason your BB doesn't like to show images hosted on shutterfly, so I'll have to figure something else out later to post pictures. :cry:

You can use photobucket or picturetrail. Both are free & easy to use.
