“Pit bulls were bred to fight in the pit, with other pit bulls. So, if you are not dog fighting, what do you expect your pit bull to do? They’re just not that great at anything else.”- J. Thomas Beasley
I suppose this is proof that it doesn’t take a brain to get a law degree- basically the new DBO [email protected] just called us pit bull owners dog fighters.
I don’t know about you, but I expect my pit bull type dog to:
- Hog the Bed
- Stare at my bagel while I eat it
- Sunbathe until it gets too warm and then lay in the living room.
- Look out the window
- Bark at a pigeon eyeballing him in the front yard.
- Pass gas- multiple times
- Sit at the window waiting for the tween to get home.
- Keep out of the two year old’s way while she’s driving
- Lick his butt 😖
- Crawl on my lap because he thinks he’s a lap dog
- Possibly play fetch
- Watch Supernatural
- Go for a walk
- Bark at the pool
You know why I expect my pit bull type dog to do all that? Because it’s what he does. Now, I know not all pit bulls are as lazy as mine- some people have amazing pit bulls.
They swim, fly through the air, save lives, fight crimes, help children move through the community, comfort soliders, bring smiles to the faces of termanilly ill. Pit bulls are capable of amazing things with amazing people.
It’s never just about the dog. The dog reflects the person besides them. They reflect the time, effort, love & training that the person invests into them. It’s a team- and they can be a powerful team. They can change lives and change minds- when the right owner with the right pit bull type dog face the world – nothing and no one can stop them. Not even some prick who pretends to be a lawyer.
