Blue never fails to elicit a smile from me. Even when I’m having an annoying day, I get to Blue’s house and can hear the thumpthumpthump of his tail on the other side of the door, waiting for me to open it. Once I do, he explodes out of it, bouncing like rubber in fits of joy and laughter and wriggles. Blue is a Pit Bull and, as such, is on the receiving end of a lot of fear and misunderstanding. But Blue and I let them think what they want – we go on to have a super fun and happy and friendly time.
