Bentley: My Pit Bull Friend

by Laura Ducourant

I have always loved Pit Bulls. I remember seeing my neighbor with his Pit Bull when I was young and I knew that one day I would have one too. I got my first Pit Bull when I was 14 years old after begging my mom for months on end. She finally gave in and I ending up going to the animal shelter, picking out a beautiful caramel colored Pit and naming her Mama. That dog showed me what loyalty truly was. She protected me when an ex-boyfriend was abusing me and never left my side. She passed away years ago, but I always wanted another Pit Bull.
