Pooches: Pittie Posse Secret Santa Reveal

While we originally started our blog to show our families that we weren't crazy for adopting pit bull-type dogs, we love how it has helped us meet an amazing community of like-minded dog owners. We were extra excited when our friend at Our Waldo Bungie coordinated a Pittie Posse Secret Santa gift exchange among some fellow bloggers (2nd annual!).
The exchange includes 10 pitbull-based blogs, including: Pittieful Love, Love and a Six-Foot Leash, That Touch of Pit, Two Grad Students and a Pittie, Kate with a Camera, Our Waldo Bungie, Peace, Love, Fostering, A Heartbeat at my Feet, Two Kitties One Pittie, and us!
The pups were extra excited when this Pittie Posse Package arrived in the mail. Of course, Miss M needed to investigate:
We were so excited to see our Secret Santa was none other than Heartbeat at my Feet out in Nashville. They are the cutest family sharing adventures in volunteering and fostering. Their current foster Cooper is one smiley pup who is unbelievably currently still available (hint, hint).
We were floored to find this handpainted gift of our pups. The photos don't even do it justice:
They commissioned this ornament from a woman, Lori Wegenka, who paints them in her craft room in her spare time, and rents space at this local shop in Tennessee. It is based on a photo from our blog, here. 
How cool is that?
As if that wasn't enough, they also included a slew of pitbull stickers and treats for the pups. The best part is the proceeds from the treats benefit Animal Rescue Corp's latest rescue: Operation Broken Chain. You can read more about this amazing effort here.
We were so excited to receive such an amazing gift. Thank you so much, Heartbeat at my Feet!

Meanwhile...we sent out a package to one of Miss M's crushes, way out in Baltimore.
Check out handsome Chocko from Pittieful Love to see what we sent them (this is a hint!) and follow the Pittie Posse chain.
We are so excited for the upcoming holiday and break, and while we may slow down our regular posts, we will keep regular updates on our Facebook Page. Besides posting things we don't get to on our blog-- like this never before seen photo of Mr. B laying on Miss M!--we have an exciting and unanticipated reveal we will be able to share on our Facebook page in a few days.
We hope everyone has a great holiday!

BEAUTIFUL! That ornament is incredible... wow. And the photos of the pups with the treats are adorable. I'm still working on Zoe to do the "leave it" command with the treats on her paws. She can do it -- but then she starts literally shaking because the effort to restrain herself is so difficult! :)

I'm so glad you liked the ornament - I thought Lori did an AWESOME job on it! I like how you said we "commissioned" it, it makes us sound all fancy. :-) LOVE the hoodie you got Chocko too, well done! Hugs from Nashville!

That's an amazing ornament. It captured their likeness perfectly. I also like finally knowing what the B and M stand for. Whew! That always boggled my brain wondering.

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas.
