America's dog, the pit bull terrier: The brave and free
Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!
There’s a reason pit bull terriers are known as America’s dog. They have a patriotic history that includes Stubby, who earned the rank of sergeant during World War II. However, these pictures show that current day pit bulls still display that national pride — on Independence Day and every day. However, given some of the goofy costumes they’re wearing in celebration of the holiday, we also think they’re pretty brave.
Proud to be an American!
Now where did I put my pom poms?
Sweet land of liberty.
Is that whole burger for me?!
Is my tiara crooked?
United we stand.
Ev’ry heart beats true, ‘neath the red, white and blue. -George M. Cohan
I want you … to give me a pet.
This is my soldier … but I share him with the world.
I’m so proud, my person’s a hero!
Ha, Elton John’s got nothing on me.
Be the change that you want to see in the world.
Stars and stripes — and brindle — forever.
Is the picnic ready yet?
America the beautiful, but I’m not too bad myself.
I’m a Yankee Doodle good boy!
