A former pit owner and soon to be again

hello all,

My name is andrew, and some might know of me, as i know some of you. I was once considered Layla's "father" and she was my first exposure to pits (although unknowingly when we got her). Since my experience with her I've become much more educated in the breed and anti-BSL. As a photography student from RIT, I did a few pit stories/projects, one on Michelle's dedication to the breed, which of course led to this forum. I've done a little photography with dogs and shows, but hope to maybe do more in the future.

While with Layla, I was involved in her development in flyball and agility and saw a completely different side of pits than what i'd heard about (rumors rumors rumors). Since I'm at a crossroads in life, I can't own a dog at the moment, but as soon as I find a place to settle down I'm sure to get one, and it most certainly will be a APBT. I joined after a long time of just reading to get more informed about training and proper care for when the day comes. Hope to get to know you all!

Ah it's ok, I think it was both our schedules because it was kind of short notice. Let me know though, I'm always willing to help out!

Hi Andrew and welcome to PBT. :wave2:

If you don't want to give us any dirt on Kendall, we would be willing to hear about any of the other members that you know. :)

anything that i might know you already know...

matt, wears a UNC hat (first thing i noticed since i'm a big tar heel fan), one of the only guys that runs/ran flyball, michelle was kinder than ever when i did the story, she took an hour or so out of her time during working hours, with only a days notice, and brought riggs and ruby along with her. patrick makes some mean meat on the grill and that's the extent of my knowledge.

sorry i'm not as cool and informative as you might think

I am, trust me. I have a thread that is 129 pages long. Feel free to start on page one and read it. :giggle: We won't give you a quiz, though, like we do to most newbies. :dance:

Sure. Here is the quick version of the thread;

Joyce talks about nothing. Lots of people talk about nothing. Sometimes we keep a thought going for 4 or 5 posts.

That about covers it. :dance:
