I really can understand where you are coming from. A lot of this is a full media beat up. But throw enough mud and some is bound to stick.
I will say that I am affraid of this breed and yes it is well and truely due to how the media portray them.
Now here is something you could never get away with as an owner of Pitbull.
I had to take the wife to the dentist and I knew she would be in there for a far while so I made my way outside to be in fresh air.
There was this oldish man outside with a powerpuff dog of some breed. Someone happened to be walking up the footpath that led him right to them.
I watched on while he got closer and this little dog was barking mad and the aproaching walker jumping up and down as it wanted to take a piece out of him. The owner just let the dog do as the dog wanted to.
I walked past him and gave him the dirtiest look I could and continued to our car. The owner had a puzzled look on his face.
To me I know if I had a big dog doing this it would have been reported. But the owners of these now called lap dogs are allowed to do whatever they fancy.
It is time for a little more equality. Why should a big dog be picked out as the instergater of things when most times it is the little dog the starts things because their owner are too lazy to train them.
That is my whinge for the day.
