There are lots of things we can’t agree on. “Doughnut” vs. “donut,” politics, whether pineapple on pizza is good…
The one thing we share and can always count on and celebrate as a society is a deep mutual love for adorable animals.
ALL the social media platforms predictably went apesh*t bananas over a baby shower, and not just any baby shower, but a PIT BULL PUPPY SHOWER.
That’s right, human baby showers are boring and tired and we’ve now graduated to gifts and food celebrating the birth of cuter things, things like pregnant pits in tutus.
Since the pit bull’s name was Winter, clever Twitter users took the opportunity to make a few Game of Thrones puns.
“Mini Winters are coming,” @aintnodocta wrote.
Owner Giselle O. Suarez went all out for Winter, who—along with guests of the non-canine persuasion—enjoyed a beach-friendly combination of sandwiches and Coca-Cola.
Several strangers who were saddened by not witnessing the event in person joked that their invites must have been waylaid.
I too wish I had been present at the momentous occasion that took place on a sunny California beach with abundant gifts and food. I also hope that one day my own baby shower can be this easygoing.
Not a lot of guests, just the people who matter along with a boatload of pre-made deli food and some sweet swag (and a blue tutu, of course).
On Sept. 12, 2017, Suarez delivered the awesome news that Winter had given birth to a whopping TEN puppies. She posted an image of four of them due to the litter being nearly impossible to capture in just one photo.
This particular litter is very special for multiple reasons.
“If you want to breed puppies and decide not to spay your pets, you should be aware that the average gestation period is 59 to 63 days and that healthy, young females produce an average of 5 puppies per litter,” according to The Pet God.
Aren’t they the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?
And even though there may not be facts to back this statement up, I’m going to go ahead and say that the puppy shower contributed to Winter giving birth to a plethora of perfect pit bull babies.
Count ’em, TEN pits, just in time for the holidays. All with appropriately pink noses, white bodies, and perfectly random dark brown markings.
Perfect enough to look like they belong in a children’s book.
And now for some random pit bull facts. Pit bulls are not actually the name of a specific breed. Instead, the term is broadly used to describe several breeds, mainly American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Lab and bulldog mixes are also commonly confused for pit bulls.
Winter’s owner will more than likely receive the typical “pit bulls are dangerous” treatment at some point in her doggo’s lives, even though it’s been proven that, like people, the way a dog is treated at an early age reflects greatly on how it acts later in life.
In other words, pit bulls are no more dangerous than their owners and their surroundings. So if you pamper one and train it in a non-harmful way, it will typically not be any more “scary” than a poodle or a golden retriever.
This is obviously not the face of a stone-cold killer.
It’s the face of a sweet little girl looking for love in a big world. And we love her and we wish the best to her and her puppies!
