Filled with inspiring stories and photographs, this heartfelt tribute to the pit bull celebrates one of America’s most popular yet misunderstood dogs. Perhaps more than any other breed, the pit bull has been dogged by negative stereotypes. In truth, pit bulls are innately wonderful family pets, as capable of love and good deeds as any other type of dog. Setting the record straight, Ken Foster sings the praises of pit bulls in I’m a Good Dog, a gorgeously illustrated, tenderly written tribute to this most misunderstood of canines. Founder of the Sula Foundation, which promotes responsible pit bull ownership in New Orleans, and the author of two acclaimed books about abandoned dogs, Foster has made it his mission to bring overlooked canines into the limelight. I’m a Good Dog traces the fascinating history of this particularly maligned breed. A century ago, the pit bull was considered a family dog, featured in family photos and trusted as loving companions for children. More recently, pit bulls have been portrayed by the media as stereotypes of everything they are not. Foster shatters that reputation through moving profiles of pit bulls that serve as therapy dogs, athletic heroes, search-and-rescue dogs, and educators, not to mention as loving pets. Foster also profiles many pit bull lovers, from Helen Keller and Dr. Seuss to actor Todd Cerveris, who took his pit bull on tour with him for the musical Spring Awakening. Proving that there’s much to love and nothing to fear, I’m a Good Dog restores the pit bull to its rightful place as friend, family member, athlete and entertainer.

"While some of these dogs are purebred American Pit Bull Terriers (APBTs), the only true "Pit Bull," many of them look the part closely enough at first glance that they are lumped in to a loosely formed concept that is popularly referred to as the "pit bull" or "pitbull." I intentionally use the single word, non-capitalized "pitbull" to refer to dogs under this broad umbrella." This is a book about differences, similarities and assumptions. I started this project by asking people to bring their "pitbulls" and "pit-mixes" to photo shoots in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. I didn't ask for breeding papers, I didn't specify purebred American Pit Bull Terriers, I left it up to dog ownersto self-identify their dogs as pitbulls or mixes, because they had decided themselves or been told by a shelter, a vet, or a DNA test that is what their dogs were. The result is a collection of dogs that look very, very different from one another, and yet, if a legislator or a landlord saw any of these dogs, he would call them pitbulls. The point is that while some of these dogs are purebred American Pit Bull Terriers (APBTs), the only true "Pit Bull," many of them look the part closely enough at first glance that they are lumped in to a loosely formed concept that is popularlyreferred to as the "pit bull" or "pitbull." I use the single word, non-capitalized "pitbull" to refer to dogs under this broad umbrella. The dogs featured here are Boxer mixes, American Bulldog mixes, Dogo Argentino mixes, Whippet Mixes and so many other kinds of breed mixes it will not do to list them all. Some of the dogs that look the most "Pit Bull" actually have the least APBT DNA according to their tests. My own Harrison is a strapping young fellow, robust, blocky-headed, strong, and someone cut his ears, but he is more Whippet than Pit Bull. Laurelai, who started me down this road appears to be purebred APBT. As you go through the book, you may say to yourself, "That's not a Pit Bull" and you may very well be right, but to someone, some landlord, some shelter volunteer, some Breed Specific Legislation enforcer, some fearful neighbor or police officer, that dog IS a pitbull, or pitbull-enough. The misuse of the term is so rampant that "pitbull" has become nearly synonymous with "dog" and while it is true that today's All-American mutt has most of the characteristics that also define a true American Pit Bull Terrier, we are losing sightof what matters most: that a good dog is a good dog, no matter what you call him. The dogs in this book are each unique in their appearance and personalities, but they are united as good dogs, family dogs, therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs, and most importantly, happy dogs. They live with chickens, rabbits, horses, cats, other dogs, babies, cancer patients and humans with special needs. The owners in this book are part of a strong and growing movement of educated dog owners who advocate for education and understanding. These owners come from wildly different walks of life but follow the same road to liberate their happydogs from the crushing weight of societal misconceptions. Hopefully, seeing how different each dog in this project is from the next will illuminate how impractical and absurd it is to refer to them all with one label of any kind. Part of the proceeds from each sale go to pitbull-friendly rescues and dogs in need.

The hugely illuminating story of how a popular breed of dog became the most demonized and supposedly the most dangerous of dogs--and what role humans have played in the transformation. When Bronwen Dickey brought her new dog home, she saw no traces of the infamous viciousness in her affectionate, timid pit bull. Which made her wonder: How had the breed--beloved by Teddy Roosevelt, Helen Keller, and Hollywood's "Little Rascals"--come to be known as a brutal fighter? Her search for answers takes her from nineteenth-century New York City dogfighting pits--the cruelty of which drew the attention of the recently formed ASPCA--to early twentieth‑century movie sets, where pit bulls cavorted with Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton; from the battlefields of Gettysburg and the Marne, where pit bulls earned presidential recognition, to desolate urban neighborhoods where the dogs were loved, prized--and sometimes brutalized. Whether through love or fear, hatred or devotion, humans are bound to the history of the pit bull. With unfailing thoughtfulness, compassion, and a firm grasp of scientific fact, Dickey offers us a clear-eyed portrait of this extraordinary breed, and an insightful view of Americans' relationship with their dogs.

Prolific and widely renowned, Eileen Myles is a trailblazer whose decades of literary and artistic work “set a bar for openness, frankness, and variability few lives could ever match” (New York Review of Books). This newest book paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of a beloved confidant: the pit bull called Rosie. In 1990, Myles chose Rosie from a litter on the street, and their connection instantly became central to the writer’s life and work. During the course of their sixteen years together, Myles was madly devoted to the dog’s wellbeing, especially in her final days. Starting from the emptiness following Rosie’s death, Afterglow (a dog memoir) launches a heartfelt and fabulist investigation into the true nature of the bond between pet and pet-owner. Through this lens, we witness Myles’s experiences with intimacy and spirituality, celebrity and politics, alcoholism and recovery, fathers and family history, as well as the fantastical myths we spin to get to the heart of grief. Moving from an imaginary talk show where Rosie is interviewed by Myles’s childhood puppet to a critical reenactment of the night Rosie mated with another pit bull, from lyrical transcriptions of their walks to Rosie’s enlightened narration from the afterlife, Afterglow (a dog memoir) illuminates all that it can mean when we dedicate our existence to a dog.

100 new and classic images of popular Instagram celebrity Jimmy Choo the Bull Terrier On Rafael Mantesso's thirtieth birthday, his wife left him. She took their cookware, their furniture, their photos, their decorations. She left Rafael alone in an empty all-white apartment. The only thing she didn't take was their bull terrier, whom she'd named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo. With only Jimmy for company, Rafael found inspiration in his blank walls and his best friend and started snapping photos of Jimmy Choo as he trotted and cavorted around the house in glee. Then, when Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, on a whim Rafael grabbed a marker and drew a new world around his ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, Rafael felt his long-dormant inspiration—for drawing, for art, for life—returning. The result? Hundreds of charming and cheeky images chronicling the owner and dog's relationship and adventures, including poses in a Star Wars stormtrooper helmet, passed out with liquor bottles, and as the shark in Jaws. Mantesso's Instagram feed quickly garnered fans from all over the world and caught the attention of major media outlets like Today, The Huffington Post, USA Today, and the Daily Mail, as well as Jimmy's namesake, the luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo Ltd. Now, Mantesso presents a definitive selection of new and classic images of Jimmy and includes the backstory of how the two became such great collaborators.
