Hi! My name is Angie LaFrance and I live in Corn Country (Illinois). I've been involved with Pit Bulls for 2 1/2 years, since the day my son convinced me to let him get Vincenzo Armani D'Paco (Vinny for short). Vinny came from some friends in PA. I was not keen on bringing home a Pit Bull! I had heard the awful stories and didn't know what we might be getting into. However, I also knew Vinny's parents to be good dogs and knew the owners were good people. As soon as we got back to Illinois, I looked up everything I could find online about the breed. What I found eased my mind quite a bit. I already had two other four-legged kids: Guido Leoni LaFrance - cocker/lab mix and Kaiser Markus Von Homer - Mini Dachshund. Vinny has totally changed my mind about Pit Bulls! He is such a wonderful boy! If I ever get more dogs in the future, they MUST be Pit Bulls. I support the breed because Vinny has shown me how wonderful they are. I've also read so much on forums and such that I see that Pit Bulls deserve all the support they can get. As far as BSL goes, there isn't any in my area, thank GOD! There is some prejudice, though. I don't do any sports with Vinny. I found Pit Bull Talk through a contact on another forum. I belong to the "Pit Bull Forum" and "All or Nothing Pit Bull Rescue Forum". I am on these forums to gain more information about the Pit Bull breed.
Here are pictures of my dogs:
My BF lives with us now so we also have Jade, a Cornish Rex.
I have 2 two-legged kids - Niki is 27 and Shane is 21. I have two two-legged grandkids - Bayne is 3 and Lilyana is 1.
I'm 46 years old and lactose intolerant - Gosh, I feel like a just wrote a book!!
Ok, let me into the forum now! (PLEEEEAAAAASE)
