To you, morons!

When I saw this, I immediately thought of a band of sycophantic stooges who spend their lives bitching (with apologies to dams) and moaning. What a waste of oxygen.

Here is to you, mindless morons..

Break stick?

There is this mosquito, or is it a troll, that keeps buzzing in my ear... its latest inquiry is whether I have a break stick or not. Apparently, not only is it a nuisance, it is also ignorant. This is unfortunate... a mere 10 minutes reading a posting on this blog would have assured it that its poodle's life would be spared if my dog got hold of it. Oh, wait... that can NEVER happen, because my dogs don't make choices. I do.

But those of you who missed my post about three years ago, can get proper instruction on American Pit Bull Terrier ownership by reading my "primer."

Heroes or foes? YOU decide

 In his inimitable and useless endeavor to convince me that Pit Bulls are bad, my foe (DubV) points me to this utterly useless piece of YouTube propaganda that uses fabricated numbers to pursuade you. Viewed by a total of 23 people. :-P

Four-year-old "Chief", an American Pit Bull Terrier, dashed in front of a venomous snake which was poised to strike at 87-year-old Liberata la Victoria and her granddaughter Maria Victoria. Shielding the women from the attack, Chief saved them but died minutes later from the snake's bite.(Photo: Marc Sabelita) 
So DubV and his 2 friends, who don’t  have a life, will bring “talking in circles” type evidence (a.k.a. hearsay cherry-picked, culled from the media, unreliable, pulled-out-of-the-thin-air, b.s pseudo-data).

The lovely threesome will ignore the testimony, personal experiences and documented data supported by all major associations and agencies (such as the American Medical Veterinary Association, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Canine Foundation, the National Animal Control Association, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), opinion of experts, and the love of hundreds of thousands of Pit Bull lovers (the mindless trio and their army of 23 cohorts call us “pitbull nutters”), and continue to spew propaganda, while citing Goebel’s philosophy of it… how hilariously ironic… or is it hypocritical?

But I digress…

I guess DubV has never been deposed or participated a Court case as an expert witness… ‘Cose rule No.1 is “Don’t cite any publications to support your point, because for every one of yours, the opposition will bring 10 that say exactly the opposite.” What an expert brings to the table (or court) is an expert opinion.

So, on a lark, I entered the keywords “Pit Bull Saves”… got 683 hits… the “PitBull DSaves”.. got 663 hits…

Talking about "unholy alliances"...

My foe, DubV, once again pours water on a duck’s ass and “alerts” me to yet another masterpiece of foaming-at-the-mouth rhetoric.  This time an “article” written by Branwyne Finch, a self-proclaimed “expert” and “contributor” to the blogs of two ladies whose life-goals are to kill dogs.

I have no idea who Branwyne Finch is, what are his qualifications, or whether anything about what he writes has any value. Is he a geneticist? An animal behaviorist? A sociologist?  A veterinarian? Or is he a self-serving mouthpiece for two women who have nothing better to do with their lives than to denigrate an entire dog breed?

Finch writes well; however he self-references exclusively the blogs written by these two ladies and this puts a serious dent in his credibility. Given that these blogs are read ONLY by folks who are already convinced by the righteousness of their “cause,” he is “preaching to the choir.” He sounds convincing and reasonable, however, the numbers he is “citing” are pulled out of thin air and the arguments he uses are exactly of the same caliber as those used by “pit nutters” (as these people, globally,  call us).

At some point in his diatribe, Finch states It has become increasingly apparent that a relatively small but vocal group of people who are fanciers of dangerous dog breeds have managed to form an unholy alliance with the dog breeder lobby and animal welfare organizations to ensure that the breeding and ownership of dangerous dogs goes completely unregulated.”

I wish Mr. Finch did not lump all of us together. MY cadre of Pit Bull fanciers has little tolerance for backyard Pit Bull breeders or breeders in general. We are definitely NOT aligned with any organizations that promote “the breeding and ownership of dangerous dogs.” We loathe criminal behavior and cringe at the thought of dogs fighting each other. In fact, what Mr. Finch wishes for (i.e., a call for cracking down on criminals and backyard breeders producing the glut of unstable dogs, a call for breed clubs to redefine ethical breeding practices, and a strong commitment to breeding away from the aggressive behavior, including dog aggression that defines the pit bull breed) is EXACTLY the focus of our endeavors.

Mr. Finch’s statement that Pit Bull fanciers promote unregulated ownership of dangerous dogs is patently false. What we want is a distinction between a “dangerous dog” and Pit Bulls. In his mind and in those of his cult, the two are synonymous.

What Finch purposely misstates is that we are a “relatively small” group. Actually, there are tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of us who are rational, thoughtful, socially responsible, and kind human beings who just happen to love a dog that gives us and our families much pleasure and improves the quality of our lives.

Probably much to his surprise, we (genuine Pit Bull fanciers) completely agree with Finch’s conclusions. Those of us who work to rescue Pit Bulls and advocate responsible ownership will automatically spay and neuter the dogs and will foster and re-home only those dogs that are animal and human friendly.  Demanding dogs are paired with experienced handlers and placed in families that are appropriate for the dog. The gauntlet of tests and the level of scrutiny through which prospective adopters AND the dogs have to pass is probably matched only by the FBI applicants.

If Mr. Finch were truly interested in our society’s welfare, he ought to go after the criminals and the greedy breeders who unconscionably perpetuate the existence of animals and situations that are dangers to our society. Not OUR dogs!
