Pit bulls get a bad rap for being a dangerous breed of dog. This is due in large part to owners who abuse them and train them to be violent for the sake of illegal dog fighting.

However, many dog owners profess their love for the breed, explaining that when they're raised like any other dog, they are sweet and wonderful pets.

But one pittie is taking things to a whole new level by saving a life.


A family in Stockton, California has their pet Sasha to thank for saving the life of baby Masailah. The two were born within days of each other and share a bond. They do many things together, including sleeping and bathing.

According to ABC News, this past Sunday, Masailah's mother Latana Chai, was in the in the backyard when Sasha began acting strangely and barking.

She opened the door to the house and Sasha quickly ran back to Masailah's room. Unbeknownst to Latana, a fire had spread from her neighbor's house to her own. Sasha dragged Masailah out of the bed by her diaper and away from the fire.

The family was interviewed by ABC...

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
