I love Total Dog!

This was a great article for those on the fence over which dog poses the biggest risk to society and other animals. Thanks Total Dog Magazine, I am sending a huge bark out just for you!

and the most dangerous dog is….

Finally a little truth is spoken, breed absolutely does not play a factor in whether or not a dog will bite. It’s time for people to wake up a tad, and see that it all starts and ends with the human. How do you train, raise, feed, and love your dog? That is key!

Remember that the next time you hear the media shout “Pit Bull” from the roof tops and don’t forget to ask did they check breed DNA or could this one be a ridgeback, or mastiff, or lab too!

***Updated, sorry my editing on the first one was a bit off*** One for the haters!

Just a little pic for all the haters, the ones that can’t open their hearts and minds long enough to see the only thing evil about this picture, is that more pit bull and bully breed owners don’t share theirs, out of fear based bias! They don’t show that these are not ticking time bombs…, they are family! Stand up bully families! Stand up and be counted! It’s ok for someone to disagree with us, it’s ok if they are fearful of the unknown, it gives us all the chance to change minds and hearts and  nothing does that better than a pit kiss!

BayLee is pure joy! She loves everyone! Even the people who cross the street to get away from her, I guess they didn’t know its ok to pet a pit bull! I guess she didn’t know people can hate something just because of how it looks! I actually had a man at my daughters school say “She shouldn’t be here!”  So I said “Well since you are a bigot and a fear monger maybe you shouldn’t be here!” You pose a bigger danger to these kids than my dog ever could,  you teach unsubstantiated fear and hate!” That shut him up! Fortunately the principle loves my dog so there buddy!

Petition to end BSL

Petition to change laws and Ban BSL

And change is as easy as one little step, many states are now seeing that BSL simply does not work. Now here’s your chance to help. Please share this petition and let’s make some positive laws that support responsible ownership and remove bylaws and legislations that kill dogs and destroy families!

Thank you

Happy Dance….Beyond The Myth will be coming to a theater near you Canada!

http://www.beyondthemythmovie.com/screenings.shtml

I have waited on pins and needles for this to come to Canada, I am hoping that everyone will take part in these wonderful screenings

Please come out everyone, it’s a great chance for people to decide for themselves about pit bulls rather than just letting the Media and the government steer how you think and what you see.

PS the picture is our very new rescued pup Baylee  I think she was tired of the photo-op.

The Real Pit Bull. Awesome video, from awesome owners!

The Real Pit Bull

So…, any questions?

Irresponsibility, abuse and neglect are the main contributing factors to an ill-mannered dog, much as they are in us!

The dogs you saw in this brilliant video are shinning ambassadors for their breed, and their owners are the type of people who should own dogs!

They are the type of owners the rest of the world should look to as an example, they own pit bulls, but they also own other breeds as well. The common denominator is they put it all out there for their pets they make sure their dogs get everything they need to be a success.

Be worthy of these dogs, of all dogs, they should be our masters I bet they would be good to us, better than most have been to them!

Be the change! Stomp out abuse and bias. End the “Pit Bull Problem”

Please take part in creating stronger animal ownership acts. Demand the government step it up, not label and kill. The truth is that 8 out of every 10 “pit bull” attacks are not even pit bull at all! Despite what the ultimate pit bull haters Colleen Lynn (Dogsbite.org), Craven’s Desires, Pitt Nutters and others including PETA, the media and the government would have you believe.

How many dog attacks are listed as “pit bull” when in actuality they are not pit bull at all? Most!

They are in fact, mastiff, labrador, bulldog, rottweiler, chow, and the list goes on. You are listening to a money hungry media that uses the fear behind pit bulls to garner readers, viewers and listeners while all the while they are irresponsibly labeling the attacks as pit bull just to sell a few papers. I can send you countless documents where attacks have occurred in your state, and nothing was ever mentioned by the media, simply because they were not pit bull.

To the politicians: BSL is a disease that you the politicians have created to ease public fear that the media irresponsibly created. Instead of placing your focus on owner responsiblity where it belongs, you have placed it at the feet of these dogs.  if you would like to at least educate yourself please contact Drayton Michaels otherwise known as the Pit Bull Guru he made the video the pit bull hoax and is an expert dog trainer, please contact Dr. Ian Dunbar world-renowned dog trainer and Vet., please contact any organization that trains pit bulls as therapy dogs. Most importantly educate yourselves and the public, if you do not, you fail your constituents and these dogs miserably! We have appointed you to do the very best for us as a society, and the very best for them, change the laws to punish animal abusers with sentences longer than 3-6 months, make animal abuse punishable with the same scope as you would a human who inflicts abuse, torture or murder, and I am sure you will see there is in fact no “Pit Bull” problem at all!

Don’t just look away while thousands of innocent pit bulls die in shelters and at the hands of Animal Control all over the USA.  This is a world problem, we can change it together!

If it can be changed in the USA then it can be changed anywhere!

and for anyone that is not educated about pit bulls please research the truth, ask experts, NOT dogsbite.org, speak to shelters talk to a pit bull owner on the street, you will see we are not all drug dealers, and dog fighters. Most of us are responsible owners with great dogs! Be part of the Too Cool Crew and sign and share this petition today!

Ace, the dog that many wanted saved but DACC wanted dead from the start!

 Here is a picture of poor sweet Ace the lonely little pit bull boy who wandered into an Ace hardware store, people gave him blanket and sent out urgent pleas on Facebook for him to be saved so DACC couldn’t get their hooks into him, but to no avail.

I think this is just another shining example of how humans view animals, they are viewed by some as non-sentient, as not worthy of the inalienable right to life.

We decide on a daily basis, which shall be regulated or culled, which shall be protected and which shall just be allowed to fall through the cracks of a frail system. Sadly for Ace, he was one of the unlucky, one that fell through, and there was no one there to catch him. (Many tried to be there, but were denied!) 

Why is it that any one department can say they have control over a life?

Ace I’m sorry, I’m sorry that you were exposed to abuse after abuse, and no one could stop a bias Animal Control Director from ending your life. He had the ability to show you mercy, and chose to deny it to you instead.

Let me just say this, I will never again surrender to animal control, ever! If this is the best they can do… no thanks!

I had nothing to do with this case but it has left a putrid taste in my mouth! Shame on you Detroit Animal Control and its “dictator”, I mean director (Harry Ward) Shame on you!

Thanks so much to Love A Bull Inc for organizing this event, and to Karen Brooks for the great article below;

Way to go gang! Now the world can see what we already know, that banning is not the answer. Embracing them, and protecting animals from abuse is the best way to keep our communities safe!

My little h’omage to National Pit Bull Awarness Day 2011

Firstly I would like to thank and congratulate Bless The Bully’s on their fifth anniversary of NPBAD (National Pit Bull Awareness Day)Thank you Jodi for creating an organization that celebrates responsible owners and good dogs. Thanks for making it a place where even people on the fence about Pit Bulls can find truth!

Here are some videos from Jodi’s site Bless The Bully’s:

Also please see an online petition I started to make the US government step up in the right way:

http://www.change.org/petitions/the-supreme-court-of-the-united-state-of-america-change-laws-ban-bsl-educate-yourselves-a-fearful-ignorant-public

Lets make our politicians accountable and responsible as well, make them have to come up with better alternatives to BSL and place the abuser or neglectful owner in the hot seat not the dog!

The photo you see here is by my 10-year-old daughter she did it for NPBAD and a special little pit bull named lucky lady, who by the way, was just rescued! Yeah!

 

My hope is by the time we celebrate again next year BSL will be off all the books in the United States and Canada.

Their best chance is for all the responsible owners and the advocates to stand together as one, and to treat our companion animals with the same care as we would our family. Every “pet” I have ever “owned” really owned me, in all aspects! They are our family! be worthy of them, because they would be willing to die for you.

Update on the “Emaciator” otherwise known as the disgusting Kisha Curtis!

I Just found out that Kisha’s grand jury hearing was this afternoon, and there they will decide if there is enough evidence in the case to charge her. They must determine whether she is innocent or guilty, if they find her guilty a felony conviction could be next. The hearing will continue next friday, New Jersey SPCA will be testifying. I certainly hope they will see through her nonsense and take aim at her! It’s time folk’s it’s time for pit bull abusers to face the music. I want to see her behind bars for a very long time, and I would like to see her right to own animals revoked permanently.

While all this goes on Patrick continues to do well here is his updated photo;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Isn’t it amazing what a little food and some TLC can do for a dog!  And Kisha, living well is the best revenge, despite all you did to kill him, he still made it! To all of Patrick’s supporters, please note that he still needs you. Please be his voice, stand up and speak out for him. Pit Bull abuse has to stop!

We love you Patrick, you have changed the face of animal abuse, you made it real and no longer acceptable for so many. I wish you never had to endure what you did, I often think wouldn’t it have been nice for you to have only known a tender touch and a mom that cared!
