Its name comes from Mahlemuts, an Alaskan tribe that would raise and cared for them. (terrificpets) 2000 to 3000 years ago the Eskimos of Alaska highly valued the dogs as they were their only form of transportation. They pulled not only light traveling sleds, but they also hauled heavy loads of food and supplies for the Arctic people. The Alaskan malamute has a thick, coarse guard coat. The undercoat is dense, from one to two inches in depth, oily and woolly which protects them from cold weather.
The Bulldog was an animal from 35 to 80 pounds, long of leg, sturdy in body, athletic, with a strong head and muzzle. The pit bulls of today descend directly from these animals. After industrialization became a major factor in the United States, hunting big game became less of a concern for the hard working dog, and dog fighting became more popular. As a result, the dog fighters of the time would champion their best fighting bulldog as the "bully in the pit" or a "pitbull”. After a while, the term pit bull was so commonly referred to the American Staffordshire terrier and American pit bull terriers that the name was officially branded to the breed.
Lennie was oft compared to a dog in the book. This comparison is apparent when Lennie is drinking water, but it is also hidden within the context of the book that he, as George’s only friend, is like Candy’s dog, who was Candy’s only friend. Lennie’s hands are the reason he kills Curley’s wife. Therefore, Steinbeck compares his hands to those of a dog’s, calling them “huge paws” (62) and saying that he “pawed up the hay” (89) to bury Curly’s wife. As early as page four, the characterization of Lennie’s uncontrollable strength was denoted by Steinbeck’s description of the way he dragged his feet being similar to “the way a bear drags his paws” (4).
How does Steinbeck present Lennie in the first chapter of of Mice and Men? Lennie is one of the first characters to appear in this novel, and as the book progresses you will see just how much of an important character he is. Lennie’s character is unique and so innocent. Steinbeck describes Lennie in animal forms, just to give the reader more of an idea what his character is like. On the second page Steinbeck describes Lennie by saying “…he walked heavily, dragging his feet a little, the way a bear drags his paws” this implies that Lennie is quite a big strong man, and bears have the potential to kill; so does Lennie, but he doesn’t know that.
A Misunderstood Breed In the early 1900’s Pit bulls were known to be America’s favorite pets. They were so popular that companies used images of them in advertisements, the most popular being the RCA Victor. During WWI Pit Bulls were all over army recruiting posters. One Pit Bull named Stubby fought in WWI and became the most decorated dog in war history. He was wounded twice in combat, captured a German spy, and saved his entire platoon from a poison gas attack.

In the story, “When Grizzlies Walked Upright” by Modoc, they say “They looked so fierce that the Sky Spirit sent them away to live in the forest at the base of the mountain”. They also say the grizzly bears used to walked upright all the time and talk like humans do and the Sky Spirit made them walk on all fours because they were too scary. Nature contributes to a major part of Native American literature. They take care of their land very well. If they kill and animal, they don’t just eat it, they use the skin for
Pit bulls were created to work as farm dogs. The pit bull terrier was a crossbreed between a terrier, which was typically any dog that dug for vermin, and the bulldog, which was a dog that caught errant cattle. This particular breed is believed to have been created around 1790. (Tullis, 2013) The pit bull breed was at one time very popular. The dogs are
I believe that’s exactly what the statistics show. Over sixty percent of the fatal pit bull attacks are done to the owner, (.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-statistics-study-dog-attacks-and-maimings) and that tells me that the owners are mistreating these animals. Joe Stahlkuppe writes, “The American Staffordshire Terrier and American Pit Bull Terrier can be excellent companion dogs for the caring and consistent owner (Stahlkuppe 41).” That statement makes me believe that some owners are not caring enough and maybe a little to abusive. Some people, perhaps even most people might argue that, I just think that way because I own pits. Why is it not reasonable to believe that pits or any animal for that matter can’t be the way they are because of their
