I’ve posted about my dog a couple of times here. Greta Splendens, née Dolce, was adopted from The Washington Animal Rescue League this summer. She is, we think, a bullmastiff mix, although no idea what the other half is as she really just looks like a mini mastiff, with a slightly less smooshed nose. She has been a joy and a half and even when she’s loudly protesting the presence of the garbage truck, I love that she’s in my life. I hope that if you’re looking for a dog, you consider looking past the hype and check out the thousands of bull breed dogs in shelters. Pitbulls, bulldogs, boxers and their mixes make fabulous pets.

If you already have a bull breed, how about helping convince other people? I’m sure your dog is a fabulous breed ambassador, so here are some stamps to help spread the word.
