luck of the Clover


It's a good day when the media recognizes that pit bulls are as American as apple pie. Contest entrants Kevin Flanagan, Monica Hernandez and their pooch Clover found their way to the Sacramento Bee yesterday with this crazy-fun photo and nice plug for the photo contest. How much do we love this family? Clover's entry here.

We have to admire their ambitions. Kevin told us he threatened to de-friend anybody on Facebook if they didn't send in a few votes for his family, and the votes came rolling in. And then they suddenly appeared in the paper? Hmm. Maybe there's a little Mafioso in those Flanagan bloodlines. Good luck guys!

If you haven't looked at the last pages of the contest, make sure and spend some time there today. Since we announced our plans to create a book with contest images, even more amazing photos have poured in. Food for the soul, for sure.

Bravo! Thank you so much Kevin, Monica and Clover! This article will go a long way in helping us get our breed ambassadors adopted! After a local dog attack with 4 unaltered dogs, our adoption rate plummeted for our bullies. Thanks so very much!!

I forwarded this to my wine and foodie friend in Sacramento, and he actually knows these guys! Talk about a small world.

Thanks everyone! We had a lot fun taking the picture and can't thank The Bee writer enough for pointing out that a pit bull is a great family pet. You all know the press for our dogs id 99% negative.
