If ever I had a mission ending BSL is it, and why.

About a three years or so ago was the first time I had really heard about BSL, for a short time, I tried not to think about it, because it seemed like it could never be un-done. However I had an epiphany, I saw this dog on a news clip, they didn’t even publish his name. He was used, abused and then thrown away, by his dog fighter idiot owner. He was found by a man who took him in, nursed him back to health, and gave him a home, this only to be taken away and euthanized because of his breed, because of a hateful ignorant neighbour, because of a complete waste of the taxpayers money, a little ban called BSL.  He had never bitten, he had never lunged, he had only been kind, and willing to love humans again, and that was his reward.

Then a friend of mine had a female pit bull named molly, my friend got a job in a town that as it turns out had BSL in effect, she took Molly without checking into the BSL there and what it would mean for Molly, I don’t know maybe she just didn’t know enough about it either at that time. While living in her new neighbourhood Molly met the kids there and loved them all! She played with and protected them like they were her very own little charges. Until one day a 13-year-old girl in her neighbourhood was attacked, jumped from behind, and was being forced into a truck by the man driving, Molly jumped her fence and attacked the man never biting him I will add, simply keeping him at bay so she (the girl) could get into Molly’s yard for safety, Molly jumped back into her yard and guarded the girl until My friend got back from shopping.

Again, another hateful ignorant  neighbour said she bit the man, and called the authorities, they came and took Molly away, drug her away in a catch pole, not even attempting a leash, even after she so eagerly went, wagging her tail looking back at mom for assurance. Her neighbours all signed petitions but all the politics, all the hate and fear was clear from the start. They kept Molly, until she got sick and then they decided to euthanize her. I lost my friendship over Molly, and my quest to be an advocate and end BSL started.

I could no longer just keep pretending that it didn’t exist, keep lying to myself and not really allowing myself to see how many innocent dogs were dying. To see how irresponsible people were still not being punished for abuse and neglect, how no energy or funding was being put into keeping these dogs owners held to a responsibility act.  Nothing good was being accomplished. Dogs were still biting, most not even Pit Bull, but we seldom hear about those now do we?

I am to a point where as I have said before, NO ONE will tell me what type of dog I can own! period! I will no longer sit silently while good dogs are killed just because of a name, because of ignorance and fear. Doesn’t anyone else remember America’s Dog, or the Nanny Dog?  Because I do! I have read a lot but still find that no matter how much you read there is still more to learn.  A larger goal, I want these dogs to have the right to life and for people to be the ones that have to keep up a standard, of housing, shelter, food, training and care.

We have the responsibility to take care of them the way they have cared for us all these years!  Haters and ignorance will always be around, the same way we project and profile each other, we profile these dogs, we must get better!

We must admit where the blame really is to be placed, and who’s shoulders it sits squarely on. You can not blame a dog for how it has turned out. Every puppy is born with the potential for greatness or failure. The outcome is ours to create, its our chore to see they are raised just as successfully as we would want our children to be raised and taught.

 Lastly, its just wrong, no matter how you look at it, its wrong, we will let a child molester have a second chance to re offend but we can’t give them the right to life Hhhhhmmm?Failure can no longer be an option!

Thank you for supporting me and this blog, please don’t forget that these dogs need your faith and support too!

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
