Mom went out to dinner last night with a friend and somehow or another the subject got around to Pit Bulls. Mom's friend said "Dog fighting has been around every since Georgia was a state. Some dogs are just for that sport. Look at their head shapes. I mean, they're just dogs".
((OMD OH NO HE DIN'T SAY THAT!! (What does the shape of a dog's head have to do with it being a fighting dog?) WTF??? ))
Mom put her finger up and said "Don't go there. Just don't go there!" "They aren't JUST dogs." "Dogs become fighters because they are trained that way by their owners...they don't come into this world knowing how to kill."
((I mean if you jab or hit a dog over and over and over and over, he's gonna finally get tired of it and let you know in the best way he knows how...maybe first by growling, but then he's GONNA bite you.))
The friend went on to say "but I wouldn't want them around my kids". Mom asked him "what about the K-9 police dogs who are trained to kill if need be. I've seen the cop shows on TV and all the criminals are yelling at the police with a dog..."don't let the dog go, please, I'll do whatever you want, just don't let the dog go." Cause they know with one command that dog can rip his throat out or do permanant damage a little lower." (BOL). She also told him that lots of times the police office will adopt the police dog as their own after he or she has been retired from the police force. And lots of them have kids, and those dogs were killers too. So what's the difference. He didn't know (or maybe didn't realize) that the police dogs are adopted out and really didn't think of them in the same way as Pit Bulls.
((But they are the same, aren't they??))
So, I guess the answer to my question is...yes people ARE this stupid!!
Mommy just about had a heart-attack! Please tell me this person was not a San Antonian! This guy need to become more informed before he goes around making these ignorant statements! As you well know sharpei (also known as chinese fighting dogs) were bred for fighting. However just like pit-bulls, they are not aggressive by nature. In fact, it is believed that many were drugged to make them fight. And just look at me!!! Mommy knows I couldn't hurt a fly even if I tried! She says there isn't a aggressive bone in my wrinkled body. I'm not even the alpha-dog here, my little 16 lb. dog-sister is! By the way every pit-bull we've ever know has been very nice.
Unfortunately Wrinkles, it was a San Antonian!! Mom's brother-in-law used to train K-9 police dogs when he was in the AF and has ALWAYS had a pit bull the entire 37 years him and mom's sister have been married, and only 1 of the dogs became vicious and it wasn't because of him being trained to be that way. It was because he kinda went crazy...they ended up having to put him down. All the others have been just as sweet as us.
I know about us Pei not being mean, I couldn't hurt a fly either. Its all in how a dog is raised. And we know our mom's spoil us!! BOL
There are many dumb ignorant pond slime out there... concrete boots is better than they deserve... wonder if they would fight that.
Best not go there... best not.
BOL! I like how you think Flicka!
