Growing up with a dog is an amazing experience for little kids. Who else will always have your back, love to take naps as much as you do, and always clean up the (food related) messes you make before mom notices? Having grown up with older siblings, we know that it most likely won’t be them!
Ellie, the girl in this video is lucky because she gets to grow up alongside her deaf Pit Bull, Pajama Sam. At one-year-old, Ellie is already learning sign language so that she can communicate with Pajama Sam, and it looks like she’s mastered the sign for “give me a kiss!” (Or, more likely, Sam just likes to smother her with smooches on his own prerogative.)
Many people think that Pit Bulls are innately aggressive or vicious dogs because of the stereotype assigned to them as a result of dog fighting. However, as Pajama Sam proves, all dogs have the potential to be loving, sweet pets if they are given the love and care that they deserve.
Enjoy your life together, Pajama Sam and Ellie!
