I met this dog and his human on the Southwest Corridor, and he bumped into me, rolled onto his back and onto my feet, to show me his belly, and when he sat up, he leaned into my body like a clumsy love-bomb. Yeah, pit bulls are ferocious.

Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
He licks himself constantly but never licks anyone else. My dog has never, not once, licked me. Also he drools a lot when he sees any food at all.
What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?
He’s my really good friend. He just senses me and comes rub my head like a cat when he knows he did something wrong. I’ve had dogs my whole life but I’ve never felt as close to a dog as this one.
