Kevin (#780) 02-14-15

Kevin was sitting with his two dogs, puppies actually, in front of whole foods. He had no reservations about being photographed, but was no conversationalist.

First the dogs: they were pit bull puppies. I could not get even one to look at me for a picture - definitely not two. One had the thick-faced pit bull look and was named Spike. Sounds good. The other had an unusually thin face for a pit bull, and was named Bambi. Whaaa? Bambi? Brings to mint the old joke:

What has 4 legs and 1 arm?

A pit bull, of course.

Kevin is from Cincinnati and has lived in Sarasota for 18 years. He is an occupational therapist and works at Manor Care, a local Skilled Nursing Facility. Encouraging conversation was a challenge.

“What's the best thing about having pit bulls?”
