I haven't read much in the way of what to expect from the big meeting of "Pit Bull National Stakeholders."

And worse, I haven't seen anything out there talking of how to influence this get-together.

Now, I know many of us don't trust the HSUS; I have a feeling Best Friends isn't too high on every one's list; and Pit bull people have mixed feelings on BADRAP.

So what the hell are we to do?

Don't get me wrong, I understand the motivation for Wane Pacelle calling this meeting: to get his organization out of hot water.

Clearly, I hope those of us that can't stand the HSUS' practices aren't so easily swayed to shut-up.

Hell, the last I looked, "The Meeting" isn't even on their Expo itinerary...and does anybody know who all is on the Guest List?

I say phase two of making change is to come up with a few ideas on the matter...feel free to send'em to me via the comment section or email.

I think we've gotta little more hell to raise before April.

Why Pit bulls?

As I work to provide positive, rational, and balanced information about pit bulls, and the virtues of dogs in general, I am often (read: ALWAYS) asked why I am so taken by this breed of dog. It is a fair question that isn't always asked in a reasonable manner.

In short, I find many pit bulls to posses the qualities that I value in a canine companion: great with friendly people, loyal, goofy, energetic, athletic, intelligent, and willing. To be sure, the run-of-the-mill pit bull is a lot of dog. It is all of these qualities in a medium-sized dog that has me so taken by pit bulls.

Alas, there are many aspects of pit bull ownership that are less enjoyable. Namely, dealing with the many negative stereotypes, and the constant battle to balance the mis-information provided by the breed's detractors.
...thankfully, it only takes is a few minutes of lovin' from my doggies and I am reminded they're worth the effort.

I hope this blog gives others insight into my life with pit bulls, and most of all, provides information on the breed in general; there are a lot of misinformed generalizations about these dogs.

Please contact me with questions or comments pertaining to dogs, pit bulls, BSL, etc..

All the best,

The HSUS attempted to fund raise for the care of Micheal Vick's dogs, while at the same time suggesting that the dogs needed to be killed.

And to add insult to injury, they weren't even planning on taking possesion of the dogs.

Contact the HSUS and tell them this is unacceptable!
