This Just In

What a great way to start the day: I received an email from Kris Crawford of For Pits' Sake telling of an awesome event that she and her dogs recently participated.

In her words:

"Special Kids Day is a bi-annual event for 150 special needs children - those with physical and/or cognitive challenges - that my girls and I have participated in for the past 9 years. Its a fun-filled day where nobody sees the wheelchairs, the limps, the blindness, the tempers, or the emotional problems. It is an event designed specifically to make these kids feel special and, for that one day, they get to be the "normal" kids, equal in their ability to have fun and to be themselves."
Visit this webpage for more on the event.

A big "thanks" to Kris and The Girls for continuing to work for our breed, and most of all, for being considerate members of their community!

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!
