Playful canine gets into Easter spirit with furry friends [A !!!PIT BULL!!! OH NOEZ!!!]
Metro [UK] ^ | 30 Mar 2013 | Mark Molloy

Easter appears to be this cute canine’s favourite time of year as he fools around with his favourite animal friends.

Boom, a three-year old Staffordshire bull terrier, was more than happy to be snapped with three rabbits ahead of Easter Sunday.

The award-winning pooch looks to be a natural in front of the camera as he plays in the grass with baby chick Itty in the garden of his home in sunny Florida.

‘Boom is a complete clown and loves showing off,’ explained his animal-mad owner Carla.

‘He is extremely intelligent, willing to please and loves to work. He is so fun and loves the camera.’

Boom and Itty have become completely inseparable, according to their owner, and spend their days playing in the garden together.

‘We have several rabbits and a couple of dozen chickens, and he has always pretty much just gone about his business and ignored them,’ she said.

‘Boom and Itty are super cute together. She climbs all over him and the only thing I have ever worried about, was him squishing her when he is running around.’

One Easter my mom hid eggs around the yard for my nephew to find. We had a Norweigen Elkhound who was a pretty good hunter in his own right. He ate all the eggs. Mom wasn’t happy.

And maybe a little sick...an inside dog could cause lots of grief after eating lots of eggs.

But, living for the moment isn’t all bad!!

My friend had a dog that managed to grab and devour a whole lamb roast while said friend’s back was turned. He said that all thorough the following chewing-out the dog never lost its s***-eating grin.

????

Not sure why you had to “bleep” “sheep” ;-)

Zoe was big enough to reach countertops without even stretching to do so. She would lull us into a false sense of security and make sure the payoff was worth it. Ate an entire dozen donuts one morning. It also happened to be a friend’s birthday that day, which we still commemorate as “donut day.”

Pit Bull???

That’s not a Pit Bull.

That’s a Staffordshire bull terrier

These are Pit Bulls:

As I’m sure you probably know, “pit bull” is a type which encompasses the Staffordshire Terrier. “Pit Bull” is NOT a breed. If you didn’t know before, now you do.

Official Media Canine ID chart as well. Very little effort is made to confirm dog id in most of those “Family Dog turned Cujo” stories....

I’ll bet he didn’t lose his grin. I wouldn’t either!

Your friend’s dog has excellent...and expensive taste.

My friend would’ve agreed...once he calmed down.
