In the September 2012 issue of Men's Health Magazine, they have a fantastic article entitled "Be the man your dog thinks you are."
The article is good, and worth reading in its own right. But for the purposes of this blog, I thought I'd highlight the pictures that accompany the story.
The images are of NFL Linebacker Kamerion Wimbley and his dog Yogi. Yogi is a pretty consistent workout partner with Wimbley and they talk a bit about that routine.
There are several of images of the two of them together -- in an article talking about consistency, rewarding, discipline and setting appropriate expectations.
And of course, the loyal companion, Yogi, is a pit bull. You can actually see all the photos from the magazine article here.
I've spoken before about the narrative of the pit bull in the United States, and my strong belief that the narrative is (thankfully) changing -- and that magazines are more consistently showing more positive pit bull imagery than ever before -- shwoing them simply, as what they are, dogs.
It's fun to see the transition, and to see more positive pit bull imagery in the media. Enjoy.
