    1. It is isn't, M-w. We had a dog and cat that were buds like that. And he did take on any dogs that bothered his pal.

  4. Hi, Sandra!

    That's a wonderful story! When Mrs. Shady and I visited her brother in the San Diego area two years ago, he told us that coyotes often come down from the mountains and attack and eat cats in residential neighborhoods. A couple of days ago I read about a German Shepherd in Tampa that got bit three times while protecting the family's little girl from a rattlesnake. The pooch is recovering at the vet's office.

    Happy Tuesday, dear friend Sandra!

    1. I heard about that German Shepherd but haven't read the story yet.
      We have lots of coyotes here too in the rural areas.
      You have a Happy Tuesday, too, Shady.

    1. I agree, Heather. I love cat and dog friendships. And yes, what a relief the cat was rescued in time.

  9. This show how great dogs are and pit bulls. In Canada, pit bulls are no longer allowed and I think that is wrong since it is people who create mean animals. Dobermans and German shepherds are still allowed so why not pit bulls? This boy deserves a medal and this cat still looks scared and feels better being beside him. Very sweet story in the end.

  11. It's good to see a pit being a good guy. I bought into all the pit stories, then I adopted this little black dog with a broken leg. She has grown up to be the gentle giant pit bull. Only pure blood I own. lol But none of my mutts hold it against her. She's part of the pack.

  14. Well this incident wouldn't happen in Australia.
    Pit bull dogs are BANNED - period!
    Even Smarty Johnny Depp and his wife (?) couldn't smuggle one in here on their private jet - ha ha.
    The Australian Government got the best advertisement for nothing with the Depp and Mrs.Depp apology on TV
    regarding Australia's strict quarantine laws. Like
    "We, Australia, decide what comes into our Island continent".
    -----
    I have had a dog which has protected my house cat from attack and even seen the house cat go into a fight on the side of its mate, the dog. Quite an experience to witness, I can assure you that the combo of dog/cat put the opponent to flight very quickly.
    The Dog/Cat duo was when I lived in PNG in the 1960's for 6 years, before PNG got Independence from Australia.

  16. Wonderful story. Some of the sweetest dogs I've met are "pit bulls" (I prefer to call them Staffordshire Terriers--much friendlier sounding). They've really gotten a bum rap due to unscrupulous people.

  17. Pit bulls create strong reactions don't they, for and against.

  18. My neighbors had a pit bull. They kept it tied up in their back yard. To me that was worse than if they had let it run free, which is against the law in Wichita, KS. But as heros go, Jack is a good example.

    I had a Chesapeake Bay retriever who grew up with my cat named Dog. Dog was an indoor cat and was "pushed" outside one time when I had a house guest. The excuse was that cats needed to be able to go outside to climb trees and experience nature. Needless to say, I was fraught with terror when I learned he was outside. Dog was caught on the back porch at the same time a baby blue jay landed on the porch steps. Dog went over to inspect the bird, and when he did, he was bombarded with several blue jays who dived at him. Of course he had no idea what was going on, and was unprepared to defend himself. So, my beautiful Chesapeake came to the rescue. He nipped at the birds, even as they were dive bombing him. Between the dog and me bringing a broom outside to fight off the birds, Dog was able to scurry back inside. The house guest had to scurry out of there because I was ready to take my broom (or worse) to her.

    1. I bet that was something! Good for you and the Chesapeake for taking such good care of Dog. I imagine your guest did scurry off.
