"A breed of satin and steel. Pit bulls are a mixture of softness and strength, an uncanny canine combination of fun, foolishness, and serious business, all wrapped up in love."

A Pit Bull On My Pillow

Authored by Cathy Klein Nakayama
A children's picture book of pit bull type dogs, most rescued, in sleepytime poses; including some tips about dog care, for fun, to encourage responsible dog ownership, and to get kids who love dogs in the mood for sleep !! Also to help change the bad rap pit bulls have in today's society. Inside the book you will see that they are LOVERS not FIGHTERS !!! By working to change the bad rap it is hoped that more pit bulls will make it out of the shelters and be adopted into loving homes. Callie Pibble, the coverdog, was rescued from a South Carolina shelter. She is now a Canine Good Citizen, and is studying to be a Therapy Dog now, at Paws4Ever in Mebane, North Carolina. She wears her CGC vest proudly in public while she acts as a Pit Bull Ambassador to the world. Also on the cover is Callie's rescued rabbit, Chocolate Kiss; the two adore each other.

Profits from this book go directly to Carolina Care Bullies, a North Carolina pit bull rescue
