CONCORD -- A 2-year-old girl was in stable condition at Children's Hospital Oakland after being bitten by a dog Monday afternoon, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 5 p.m. in the 4300 block of Rose Lane, authorities said, and the girl was rushed to a nearby park, from where she was flown to the hospital. The girl was bitten on her face, head and right leg, according to fire officials at the scene.

Chet was ok.
He was doing a public service by warning about pit bulls.

Chet saw pit bulls under his bed, on the roof, in the backseat of his car, (um) `tailing’ him on the street, peering through his windows, auditing his taxes, dating his teenage daughters ... well, you get my point.

If you like Chet, you’ll like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQBttKoetqo

Okey dokey ... I like it too.

But I pay a bull mastiff and an American bulldog to protect
me from evil, omnipresent, death-dealing pit bull terriers.
So I’m thinking you need to contact some hard dogs and buy
some protection. Or just never leave your home.

That was one pit bull dog.

(And, by the way, I find that story extremely hard to believe.)

Think of all the news articles about pit bulls who have attacked/killed children.

I think it's very unwise to have one around children. I would never own one.

Prayers for the baby girl. She must have been terrified.

There was a pit bull roaming our neighborhood last week. I’m out for a walk and this thing is stalking me, walking through the neighbor’s yards while I am walking on the sidewalk,

It would start to rush me and when I turned towards it, it would stop and take up position peering around bushes. When I turned my back to it and started walking again it moved towards me.

I darted into a neighbor’s house, did not even knock on the door. I have never been scared of a dog before but this time I was. It was an eerie feeling.

All pit bulls should be banned in residential neighborhoods. They are no more suited for a neighborhood than is a mountain lion or other wild animal.

The story of this 2 year old makes me sick. Ban pit bulls!

Oh give me a break. Just because one of those things helped its owner does not mean it is not a ticking time bomb ready to explode in a terror. They are totally unpredictable. Any normal person that has owned one that has attacked someone will be the first to tell you the dogs should be banned. They all say, my dog is so sweet. Then pow, it rips a kids face off.

Thank you for posting those links. It should be proof enough to any sane person that pit bulls are evil.

The one that was stalking me in my neighborhood was pretty darn scary. It really felt odd the way that pit bull was acting. I’ve never felt like prey before but that day I did.

So hard to understand how the pit bull was once considered the “Nanny Dog”

When I go walking I carry a hickory handle for a maul to whack any dog that comes close enough to reach.

For backup, I carry a .380 Ruger.

Used the stick several times but have not had the opportunity to use the pistol.

In today’s society I advise anyone who walks to be armed at least with a “whacker” and if possible, a small pistol.

My gun does not have a mind of its own. Your analogy has been tried before and falls down when logic is applied.

The reference to communism was way over the top, but I understand people sometimes reach for emotionalism when logic and reason do not support their position.
