wow your pitbull/wolf mix looks nothing like what I expected. and LoL. My ex's parents have a pitbull/english pointer mix that is as dumb as a sack of hammers as well.

In fact he is the dumbest dog I have ever been around!

Mambo's not quite the dumbest dog I've ever met, but he's a close second place. First place belonged to my Greyhound/German Shepherd mix, Turbo made Mambo look like a genius.

Mambo doesn't look very Wolfie unless you look at him from the right angle. His coat, most of his behavior, and his attitude are pretty typical of a 50/50 Hybrid.

I tell him pretty often that he's not part wolf but part big brown chicken instead.
Mambo is terrified of so many things, flashlight beams scare the pee right out of him, strangers make him very nervous, he's scared to death of butterflies, game controllers that vibrate, spoons, weeds moving in the wind.
He's not scared of cats though lol little idiot thinks every cat is his best friend even the alley cats who have opened up his nose more than a time or two. I swear if one didn't run off right after clawing him he'd probably sill try to cuddle it.
Not the greatest quality but here's some young 'bo snuggling his favorite kitty.

Mambo was adorable as a pup, all legs and no brains.

He looked much more wolfy when he went through his gawky scrawny teenager stage, don't seem to have any pictures uploaded from then though.

I will say this, he is cute :) Guess I just never thought of a wolf/pit bull hybrid looking like that ;)

I find dogs that are scared of things funny. Hunter, the pitbull/pointer is afraid of thunder and rain. It's really funny when two drops hit him when he's outside and he whines to come in. I find pit bulls funny, and not the vicious monsters people make them out to be.

When I moved to Arizona my cat was terrified of the ceiling fans. She hid under the couch for a week. Only snuck out at night for food and restroom.

She calmed down a little, eventually, but when she'd catch sight of one out of the corner of her eye, she'd bolt to safety.

This is the one that was scared of fans....

I had her for 15 years. She died of kidney cancer.

I got Spot and Killer to replace her...

Killer truly was the worlds greatest cat. He'd sit on my shoulder was an unrepentant cuddler. He was also a vicious killer that would kill and eat anything he could get his paws on. He died of a weird abdominal thing at about 9 months.

Replaced him with this cat...

Also a good hunter, but not on par with Killer. A friend of my son found him by the dumpster at a restaurant where he worked. My mother almost had a stroke when she saw him, she though Killer had returned from the dead.

spot was a rescue cat (as all my cats have been). I have no idea about spots ancestry. She's not very good at hunting or particularly coordinated. so if she has wild cats in her past, they weren't very good at it. Her greatest skill is being cute, and she nails that.

Here's our Jimmy, just being himself.
Out of 178 homeless cats at the rescue center that day he choose our son. He is the kindest, gentlest cat I have ever seen.
I have never been much of a cat person, but ol Jimmy has turned my head.
His eyes are actually as blue as the wall behind him.

Tony, awww. I have two dogs and no cats, but I'm a cat person, too. Jimmy looks great. He's a pale kitty, isn't he.

Jimmy looks like he's part Siamese. The shape of the head and the blue eyes are Siamese traits.

I had 2 Siamese mixes. They're definitely a breed apart.
