Denver: Beautiful Scenery, Horrible Dog Laws
Rinalia at For the Pit Bulls, and Brent at the KC Dog Blog, have posted their thoughts on the results of a dog bite study that was conducted in Colorado.

Here's a snippet from Brent's blog:

Over the weekend, Colorado's Coalition for Living Safely with Dogs produced data from its year long survey on dog bites in Colorado.

First off, let's talk about the people who make up the Coalition for Living Safely with Dogs.

The group is made up of the following organizations:

All Breed Rescue Network
Animal Assistance Foundation
Colorado Association of Animal Control Officers
Colorado Association of Certified Veterinary Technicians
Colorado Federation of Animal Welfare Agencies
Colorado Veterinary Medical Association
Denver Area Veterinary Medical Society
Metro Denver Shelter Alliance
Summerlee Foundation

...one would believe this would be a fairly balanced group of folks that would actually be concerned with human safety when it comes to canines. So what they'd find out?

I haven't had a chance to read the report, but plan to do so in the next few days. Here's the link to the study.

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!
