How My Pet Dog Got His Name

I know you're wondering about his name, my pet dog Eragon got his name from the movie Eragon. The movie is a story about a boy named Eragon and a dinosaur egg he came to possess through no fault of his own. He kept the egg safe and when it finally hatched, the boy and the dinosaur were inseparable and had many exciting adventures together.

Protector and Companion

My pet dog is my companion and my protection, devoted and loving. He's inside as well as outside. He does have a pin outside, he is not allowed to run loose. He protects his property and stands his ground. No one approaches unannounced without him letting me know there's a presence lurking about. We do not allow petting him while he is on the premises. If we are out and about, parks, etc., we will permit petting.

I leave him in or on my truck when I go to the store. Everything is in tack when I return and the truck is still there with everything in it. I live in a neighborhood where people tend to pick up things that don't belong to them, break in others homes, etc. I never have had that problem, I won't say it can't happen but I've been here for more than 20 years and I've always had a pet dog that was also my protection and my companion.

Eragon's Background

Eragon is a Pit Bull, born in Columbus, Georgia from a litter of 8 puppies. Born August 12, 2007. Currently he is 2 years old, weighs 73 pounds. His birth line is from a male stripped pit and female solid black with white chest markings just as Eargon's marking are. Some say Pit Bulls do not make the best pet dogs but I strongly disagree with that statement. It is all in the training. A dog will conform to whatever you want him to be. If you train your dog to fight and kill, that's exactly what it will do.

Eragon and I have to go shopping now. It's getting close to Halloween and we have to get a costume for him. Last year he was Dracula, I think this year we'll see how the Devil costume looks. If you like, join us here:  Shop at

    Most who buy money orders don't give it a second thought where it was purchased. It would be a good rule of thumb to ask when you purchase one if the receiver can cash it at the chain of stores it was purchased from....

I am a big fan of dogs, although I have never been a fan of pit bulls. In our area, pit bulls get very mean and have a very bad reputation. I do agree with you that it is all in the training. I have a border collie mix, that if he wasn't trained properly, I would have to get rid of him because of his temper.

Thank you for reading about my Eragon. He has a temper too, he only uses it if he feels the family is threaten in some way. I raised him from 6 weeks old. All of his training comes from me. Pits require a lot of time and love, more than any other breed I belive.

Thanks Kevin, Eragon is as lovable as he looks and very protective. We haven't had any problems with break ins but whose to say it won't happen. Terrible things happen in this world today.

Eragon is such a cutie and he looks like a very happy dog. I think pit bulls are so darn cute, but I would not be allowed to have one in my neighborhood (condo = HOA restrictions). But I hear a lot of stories how wonderful they can be as pets. Thanks for sharing Eragon and the great photos of him!
