Kai on Pitter Patter

I fostered Kai last June and July. She was a sweet, wonderful dog, and I fell in love with her immediately. She was shy and scared of new things like going through doorways, or loud noises, or walking on a leash. It took almost two months before we got to the point she would walk all the way around the block without me having to carry her back home! But every day she made small improvements, and by the time she was adopted she was a very different dog than when she came to my house. At first, one of the things she was scared of was cameras. So in most of the pictures I took she looked terrified. Of course I didn't see the point in wasting such adorable pictures, although they didn't do much to help her get adopted. So recently I sent in one of the early pictures I took of her to Pitter Patter - and on Monday, she was featured on their website!

For those of you who don't know, Pitter Patter is a website that features pictures of pit bulls and pit bull mixes with funny captions. You can send them pictures of your dogs (or foster dogs!) and they may choose it to post on their website. They come up with all the captions and they are always amusing!

Below is a short video from last summer of Kai looking happy, and a 2-second clip of Noelle on the end. Noelle likes to jump up onto the hot tub cover, and I just happened to catch her on video trying to jump up and not quite making it. :-)

Well, congratulations on that. I will have to visit PitterPatter. I didn't know about it, but it sounds like fun. Some of my good friends are pit bulls or partly pits. Maybe they'll be on there!

wags, Lola

What a beautiful dog. I didn't realize that dogs could actually be scared of cameras; she must have had a traumatic experience before she came to you. So great to hear how well she's doing.

awww, pretty pretty lady, that kai! i'm glad she's not scared of the camera anymore. she's too lovely to not have her picture taken. :)
my big sis asa was scared of the camera when my mama and daddy adopted her. she's still not the hugest fan, so mama has some pictures like kai's pitter patter one, too. heehee.

Oh! Mom and me saw that picture the other day on Pitter Patter and thought it was Most Adorable. (That's how mom feels about Mondays, too.) I liked very much that video of her being so much happy with her ball. A little luvs and feeling safe sure makes a Most HUGE difference!

Wiggles & Wags,
