|I know what you mean. I would be upset if I'd heard that, too. It is horrible to say regardless of what breed, but the Pits do have a bad reputation painted in the news, brought on by horrible owners. I would bet this guy will run into some trouble someday with a mouth like his - always running without thinking first, I presume.
I was very upset the other day, myself, if you don't mind MY venting. I now own a four pound, quiet Chihuahua. I ran in to pay my daughter's ballet bill at the front desk of her dance studio. It was hot (and I never leave my dog alone anyhow), so I ran in to drop the check off and this lady who was sitting on the far side of the waiting area brought it upon herself to get up, set down her book, flip=flop her tootsies over to me and in a very rude tone said to me, "Excuse me, maam, I am very allergic to dogs. Please take your dog outside!" and marched on back to her bench to continue her one hour sit while her daughter was dancing. I finished paying and then I left. I do understand allergies, but there was more fur on the lady sitting next to her than on my entire dog! Also, she was all the way inside the building. If she was so allergic to pets, why get close? I was four feet inside the front door, going pay (obviously) and then going to leave. She put herself in danger by even bothering to be offended by my dog that I was holding. Some people are looking for ways to be offended and have something to talk about with their friends. I felt like telling her to "Get over it, lady!", but I ignored her. I came back to pick my daughter up after dance and was sure to stand right by that lady who had not moved. She never sneezed or sniffled once. Perhaps if we would all make an effort to think of others and how our words are going to come out and be heard we would all get along better. Or, rather, just don't speak at all like our pets and everyone will love us, right?!
