Just curious the result if this guy had been armed . . .might he be alive today, Bob Costas?
In some animal shelters, if you are looking for a dog to adopt, the only dogs you will see are pit bulls and pit bull puppies.
Where the hell are the cops when you need one to shoot a dog?
This year, I see most homeowner insurance policies in California are written with dog bite exclusion liability. You can add protection for a fee.
“In some animal shelters, if you are looking for a dog to adopt, the only dogs you will see are pit bulls and pit bull puppies.”
True. Back in HS, one of my curriculum liberal courses was volunteer work at a pet shelter and it held true back then. I preferred to feed the boa constrictors than feed those animals.
Congress should consider “Pit Bull Control” legislation.
here in the city, pit bulls are bling to certain stereotypes, er, ethnic types that are known to not be the most responsible types. the dogs too frequently find themselves homeless which is just sad but also dangerous. I honestly like pit bulls- they’re a respectable breed. I don’t care for most pit bull owners though. most. I know there are good people that own pit bulls out there but too often, I see the stereotypes with them and I know these are the ones that end up as strays on the street eventually.
"We didn't mean to do it!"
When I adopted my older dog as a puppy from a humane society in KY, he was described as half Black Lab and half Great Dane. Well, DUH, guess what—he turned out to be half Black Lab and half Pit. By then it was too late; he and I had fallen in love. He’s turned out to be the funniest, friendliest, most self-assertive and self- confident dog I have ever had. Not only that, he gets along superbly well with all the nieghborhood people and dogs. He’s had company for nearly the last two years, a Great Dane who’s now nearly two. It’s really frightful what some horrible “people” have done to the Pit breed and its reputation.
Yeah, not all pit bulls are trouble, but it’s really hard to train a lab to be viscious. It just doesn’t come natural to them.
Meanwhile, overzealous cops are shooting chihuahuas nationwide....
Is that you Chett 99?
My daughter ended up with a half pit bull half boxer. It is a very friendly dog and has never tried to bite anyone. He runs up, takes my hand in his mouth but will not bite.
Now, a cat, coon, possum has no chance in his back yard. They are toast.
She keeps him in a chain link back yard topped with electric fence - just in case.
It’s not the dog but the owner. Buddy of mine raised pit bulls and they were nothing but a couple of big (BIG) puppy dogs. I never heard them bark or growl at anything or anyone.
Very calm and quite dogs.
Even worse, you put it in print.
Odd, who would have thought that pit bulls; bred to fight in rings for entertainment, might possibly be violent?
Btw, if you ever need to get a pit to let go and don’t have a gun, you can pick it straight up by the tail. Trust me it works.
One other curious thing about my Pitador is how he’s adopted the Dane. The now deceased dog who preceded the Dane was a wonderful, beautiful soul who’d been horribly abused. The one thing he couldn’t/wouldn’t do was play with other dogs, which caused the Pitador great frustation because the Pitador is a play machine. All that changed with the Dane, who’s as playful as the Pitador. Anyway, the Pitador decided to take over the Dane and has become the Dane’s virtual father, to the point where the Dane won’t do anything without the Pitador’s permission. Funniest of all, the Pitador loves to groom the Dane, as though he were the Dane’s mother.
What if you don’t want your hand in the dog’s mouth?
Time for Pitt Bull control.
Good question. I just pet him on the head and shoulders.
But then, there is also a Lab in with him so I am going to get doggie slobbers on me no matter what!
“Btw, if you ever need to get a pit to let go and dont have a gun, you can pick it straight up by the tail. Trust me it works.”
the black lab half kept the pit half under control.
I half-expect to see a Victor Davis Hanson article about this incident. He lives in Selma, IIRC.
I have Boas.
Feeding them is boring.
Open door, toss thawed rat in.
Snake pokes head of hide, picks up and swallows rat.
Did you have some hard core herps there?
Was the guy a whiney Demoocrat or an American?
My boxer has played with many pit/boxer mixes at our local dog park. Boxers are people lovers, so it turns out to be a good mix. To punish a boxer, you ignore it. Boxers turn out fine if they aren't left alone for long periods.
I once took my boxer for a walk, and had a really large pit bull get loose. He wanted to play with my smaller boxer. It was friendly, but it was so muscular it good have wiped us off the map in a matter of minutes. It was like having a tiger want to play with us.
and the pit added some wonderful szauce to the lab.
Haven't pit bulls been bred for aggression - meaning the friendly ones are culled and the aggressive ones kept for breeding with other aggressive dogs? I don't think any amount of training can overcome a genetic predisposition to be aggressive
The owners of the dogs should be charged with first degree Murder.
Tomorrow, Ayatollah Obama and the Muslin-Dimocommie Party will be calling for Pit Bull control.
Thanks for the laugh! =)
I love that pic.
He looks exactly like my boy, Bob.
That’s one of the really bad things the low lifes, like Michale Vick, hkave done to pits. Having a wonderful dog who’s half Pit and all love and silliness has given me an entirely different take on the breed and a real loathing for the “people” who abuse it and the individual dogs.
Say hi to Bob for me since I can’t shake his hand. :)
[oh, that was *so* bad it was good] ;D
That” boo n hiss “was quite good too. Okay I think we’re even. :)
