I would like to thank everyone for their patients over the last couple of days, its been crazy here, but I do have some info to share with you all, something to put forth on behalf of National Pit Bull Awareness Day.
I would first like to thank Drayton Michaels for generously allowing me to add his link to my site, Drayton also sent me a copy of his video, “The Pit Bull Hoax” and I really have to say that this video is sheer genius! Thank you very much Drayton for showing us the “real deal” and for saying all the things that needed to be said!
I love anything that will perpetuate change in the perceptions that people have about this breed!
Now, here are some excellent links for Canadian Pit Bull families, advocates, fanciers, or really anyone that just wants to get the straight scoop.
http://hugabull.com/ (A personal favorite of mine)
There are many more so please check them out and you can always find a vast majority on the internet , your local library, or your local shelter should be more than willing to aid in your search, but please remember that I am always here to hunt down any and all info you may need I want you all to understand how very important accurate information is.
So many myths and in some cases outright lies are put forth, mostly by media outlets that can’t take the time to do their research, and often by people like you and I except that those people hear and repeat the things they have heard and often times do not even realize it is inaccurate.
I am currently working on some euthanasia stats but I have not completed that post yet but as soon as I am done I will post it. I did not mention American sites because if you look back on my last post I did list them there.
I can only say that I am trying to realize a dream here and the dream is a simple one, a time when the government morons do not tell me, which dog i as a responsible human being can own, and or which breeds will be allowed to live in my city and which will not, look tome BSL is genocide plain and simple call it extreme if you like but, what other label can you give the systematic elimination of an entire race or breed?
We as humans seem to think it is our given right to decide the fate of all living things on this planet, well let me just say this, if I had a pod of dolphins swim through my back yard tomorrow, if my children needed to be fed, I will not lie I would kill and eat one. Would I take it upon myself to slaughter thousands every year? NEVER! (don’t even get me started on the mercury levels) I could go on forever!
When the wolf populations in this country get too high we consider it necessary to “Cull” the herd, but yet we will allow our own race to get totally and completely out of control, does that sound even remotely logical to you?
We need to realize that we do not have the right to control this planet in such a completely inappropriate and irresponsible manner. We also need to learn our place! we are one species out of billions living on this planet, some we have yet to lay eyes on but they live none the less.
As Canadians we have allowed animal butchery and abuse to become a tourist treat, I have seen abuse on a scale that would make some people sick, how and why? I got smart, got educated because i could no longer sit with my head tucked in the sand and pretend these things are not happening. They are , and I cannot sit idly by while it does!
In and attempt to give out as much as I can in terms of info for October 23 2010, please check out all the different sites, they are a wealth of information, and information is power, knowledge is power!
Again I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for listening, and reading this blog, you have made the first step an easy one for me, your support is deeply appreciated!
