I wanted to make sure I walked them all since if one went unnoticed it might feel unloved and that was not the case. I needed the unconditional love that these pit bulls were so ready to give, we were labeled by society and I felt closer to these throwaway dogs than I felt to my own family. “Come here Dumbo,” I said with loving eyes. ” Stop pulling Stupid,” I said with a smile and continued to engage with terms of Endearment like stupid/ silly/dumb ass etc…when all of a sudden I realized I didn’t know how to say something nice even when I was positive. When a child is not nurtured or given positive affirmation it definitely becomes part of their social communication skills deficits. I loved their company with all my heart but only knew how to speak with negative words for terms of endearment…..
