Mia the Blue-Nose American Bully Pit

A day in the life with Mia the American Bully (Bully Pit) puppy. 1 year 5 months, 61 pounds, 18 1/2 inches from the ground to the highest point of the shoulders (the withers).

A blue nose Amercan Bully Pit is sitting on a grass hill and she is looking forward. Her right ear is up and her left ear is flopped over.

1 1/2 Year Old (17 months old).

The Pack

Carrying Thinks Around

Mia is still big on carrying things around. Before coming into the house she always grabs something to bring with her, tail wagging, rear end wiggling as she dances around any human that may be there. Every morning she still runs for a bone before greeting each family member as they wake, one by one, wooooing, wagging and wiggling with her head bobbing up and down.

Hey, Leia, get your own banana peal! This find is all mine! I got to bring it to those humans.

Mia, what is that in your mouth (as she wiggles and wooo's all around my legs). It's a piece of stuffing from your bed. You do know that is bad don't you? It's not funny, Mia. Drop it. You act like life is one big joke.

Now what do you have? A log? Really? You mine as well bring that over to the fireplace. Come over here.

Thank you for carrying it over, but don't make a habit of stealing the logs off of the wood pile.

I don't think you should put it in the stove by yourself. Give me that now and be careful not to drop it or you might put a dent in the wood floor.

Mia, you can't just take wood from around the fireplace and take it outside.

Allergic Reaction

Mia was outside playing with Leia. When she came back in I noticed she was developing lumps all over her body. Oh no, an allergic reaction, but to what? Bees was my guess. I dosed her up with Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and watched her carefully. She was itchy, rubbing herself all over the floor to relieve her herself. You poor girl.

Notice her swollen eye and the lumps on her head. I gave her more Benadryl. I was ready to race her to the vet if it got any worse, but it started to get better. When Bruno the Boxer had an allergic reaction as a puppy the emergency vet had given him a hefty dose of Benadryl and I was told that was the thing to do ASAP when you notice a reaction such as this in a dog. Luckily with Bruno I had indeed stopped at a drug store and done just that on the way to the ER vet. So I was going to try that first with Mia.

Looking and feeling a little better there Mia. Your eye is still swollen, but it is definitely going down and not getting worse. My best guess is you decided to take on a hive of defensive bees and you lost. But as of right now I still do not know what you got into. Leia, Amie's rescued Pit Bull was with her and she was fine, but Leia is more the type to run away if a bee comes after her, where as Mia would stay and take it on, snapping and jumping at them even as she got stung. Just like the first time she saw the fireplace as a puppy. If a car comes down the driveway and honks its horn Mia will RUN TO the front grill of the car cocking her head at the loud noise so close the driver can't see her anymore, where Leia, and all the other dogs for that matter, would back away from the piercing sound of the horn. Mia does not back down easily.

Hole Digger

Mia, from the looks of you, my guess is there is a new hole out there in the yard somewhere.

The Beach

The side of a blue nose American Bully Pit and an American Pit Bull Terrier are standing in water and in sand. There is a blonde haired girl holding the long retractable leash of the Bully.

The retractable leashes come in handy at the beach when the dogs can't run free, yet we want them to be able to run and play.

When her feet no longer touch the bottom she quickly decides she better swim back. That thing out there is further than she thought!

"Yeah I smell it too. Fish makes me happy..."

Down Time

Worn out from along day. Mia that is an odd way to lay.

General Rules

Four dogs are sitting in the back of a van. One of the dogs is trying to get out of the vehicle.

When the van door opens everyone is to wait for a command to get out, for their own safety, it has to be a strict rule. We can't travel with dogs jumping out of the van whenever the door opens. Of course Mia is the one who needs to be reminded with that bully head of hers. "Mia, back, and wait."
