    AN APOLOGY TO BREED BAN ENTHUSIASTS

    By Rob MacBean



    I'm sorry you are frightened of my dogs and are trying to have them killed because they are pit bulls.

    I'm sorry you lack the understanding of this breed's true history, gentleness with people, wonderful temperament, intelligence and behavioral conformation. I'm sorry you won't read the ATTS stats regarding our breed's true temperament, putting it in the top four for temperament, scoring better
    than breeds like Golden Retrievers, and cocker spaniels.

    I'm sorry that you side with and protect animal abusers by marking the breed of dog, and not the irresponsibility of the owner. I'm sorry that by your logic I could steal a car, run some people over with it and then you can blame the make of car for the accident, as I walk free.

    I'm sorry you generalize one breed of dog with one group of people. I'm sorry you can't see the love and determination that many often highly educated, non-criminal and "normal" types of people show towards this breed and the great personal sacrifices that they make to take care of their dog
    responsibly.

    I'm sorry you cannot go into the shelters and see the hundreds of abandoned and abused pit bulls, dying only for the inane "crime" of being born the breed they are. I'm sorry you cannot see the look of disappointment in their eyes as someone walks by their kennel, and refuses to consider adopting them based on an ill educated fear mongering reporter. I'm sorry that you cannot
    be there when the animal looks at a human for the last time, and in spite of betrayed by all humans they have met, their tail still wags as someone approaches with the syringe of Ethanol.

    I'm sorry you cannot be there when law enforcement shoots one of your dogs dead inside it's own home in front of the children it mutually loves for simply getting off the dog bed and walking over to say hello with it's tail wagging. I'm sorry you cannot be there to rescue pit bull puppies from a plastic bag in a dumpster, dumped there by someone switching their illegal, and inhumane activities to another, more lucrative breed.

    I'm sorry you cannot understand the difference between canine and human aggression, in the way that this breed can. Yes, I'm saying my pit bull is smarter than you.

    I'm sorry that the medieval witch hunting genetics of intolerance, generalization, and racism make you feel the need to vilify a breed of dog. I'm sorry that justice, equality, tolerance, common sense are all things you hold dear as a fellow Australian, and expect from others, but do not yourself
    offer them towards a pit bull or its caregiver. I'm sorry that you don't take the constructive time to petition changes in the Australian animal cruelty act, and in the criminal code that would deal out serious punishment to the real animal abusers.

    I'm sorry you cannot see the disappointed look on a puppy's face when the people petting it quickly frown, and walk away when you tell them it is a pit bull. I'm sorry you feel the need to terrorize my family and my dogs for crimes we never have and never will commit. I'm sorry you don't have to live in fear of your dog's safety from hysterical and mentally unstable people trying to inflict all manner of evil upon your dogs.

    I'm sorry that you cannot see my breed working in some of the best Search and Rescue groups in the world, saving countless lives each year. I'm sorry our media censors and refuses to print the breed name "pit bull' when in connection with a positive act such as saving a person or child from a burning house, drowning, wild attacking animals, etc. I'm sorry you cannot see the many pit bulls registered as therapy dogs and bringing so much joy to another misunderstood, neglected demographic in our society, the senior citizen.

    I am sorry you can't see a pit bull kiss a child, step carefully over a kitten, or play in a sunbeam. I'm sorry you cannot wake in the morning to feel a warm pit bull cuddled next to you in bed, and know that you are their total world, and even if the house caught fire and trapped you, they would stay with you to the end.

    But, now that I really think about it, I'm not at all sorry you don't own a pit bull--you do not deserve one.

    The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

    Every boy should have two things: a dog and a mother to let him have one.

    Whoever said "let sleeping dogs lie' didn't sleep with a dog.

    A watchdog is a dog kept to guard your home, usually by sleeping where a burglar would awaken the household by falling over him.

    If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principle difference between a dog and a man.

    A good dog never dies. He always stays and walks besides you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter's drawing near. His head is within your hand in his old way.

    Puppies never take things too seriously-they just get up, move on, and shift their attention to something new.

    Heaven goes by favour. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    In fact, I re-read it, slower this time, and I have a tear in my eye. Especially about them being betrayed by every human it knew, but still wagging its tail.
    I know that feeling, putting down a dog after its human left it in a state not possible to un do, and despite being killed, they left their owners still with eyes only for them.
    Its incredibly sad. I think sometimes when I put dogs and cats to sleep through neglect, it over rides all the good I help out with..
