We always take Sadie to the dog park, its one of our favorite activities. We know almost all the dogs and their owners that go there too, its always fun seeing them and meeting new people and their dogs. Tonight, we went to the dog park and after one lap a couple pulled up and asked us if we have seen these three dogs and their owner. Apparently this one dog, just happened to be pit bull, attacked the couples dog so bad that it was critical care and had to go for surgery as soon as possible. They said the pit attacked their dog, and bit its behind so bad that blood was pouring. The couple was just in shock and was asking around if anyone knew the dog and the owner, she kept telling everyone “yeah, it was a pit bull!” I have a lot of sympathy for her, Sadie was brutally attacked by another dog too, but not to the extent hers was. Its very scary to have your dog in critical care because of another dog. Another couple arrived at the dog park with a pit bull, and I was worried because of the other couple who seemed to be traumatized a pit bulls and I was scared they were going to get in a argument, they finally came across to the other couple and we were already walking around so I could’t hear what they were saying to each other, and they were having a full conversation with each other. I was so interested in what was going on, could they be arguing? Could they be understanding? I had no clue. As we were coming back around they finished their conversation. I was worried because I hate the reputation that pit bulls have been given, and having someone who just had their dog attacked by one doesn’t help. The owner of the dog that was attacked said that the owner of the pit that attacked their dog, he just left after it happened. I was thinking he is careless owner, if he left, and a careless owner means a poorly raised dog, the dog was raised poorly. That’s it. I hope the dog attacked will be okay, and I hope someone finds the owner because the owner is the problem, not the dog.

All pit bulls need respect and love. There are so many that are frowned upon and unloved because of biased media and their breed. So many pit bulls do great things for the world like: search and rescue dogs, “nanny dogs”, and overall great family members. They deserve a little more credit than what they have been given. I think people should give them a chance and see for themselves instead of believing what they hear about them. I never judged a pit bull, I was never a hater before I became a lover. Its not fair to judge based on what you see on the outside or hear before giving it a chance yourself.

Not only do I like to blog about recent stories and other things, I also like sharing personal stories and experiences. Today I was talking to one of my friends about what she did on the weekend, we were talking and then she mentioned about how when she was hanging out with her friends, one of them hit their dog. I wanted her to tell me more about that because that was the only thing was really intrigued in hearing. She said that her friend hit his dog because it needs strict discipline because its a pit bull. Once I heard “pit bull” I was fully interested in what that was all about. She said that he took his dog outside to hit it because it was a pit bull and needed stricter discipline. I was completely sickened when I heard this. Because its a pit bull it needs strict punishment? I couldn’t wrap my head around this.

Does he think pit bulls don’t feel pain? Yeah, they may look tough and there are the myths out there that they don’t feel pain, but really? And people wonder why there are some pit bulls that are aggressive. No body should think “I need to punish my dog more strict then I would any other dog because its a pit bull” That’s just wrong! Why is it different for a pit bull, they are no different than other any dog. So we have to discipline them stricter and harder? To me, that just makes no sense, maybe it does to someone or to the people that have misconceptions about the breed. Education is a must for the Uneducated…
