I'm not going in your house!

This is where to talk about Pit Bulls!

Postby Veda » May 22nd, 2006, 3:23 pm

That's what my aunt and grandmother said to me Friday night. I had planned a little BBQ since my grandmom was in town. My lab was just spayed the day prior so she was up in the bedroom resting. No worries, the killer lab was put away.
So they were all very hesitant about meeting a blood thirsty pit bull in person. My grandmom actually lived next to a BYB, bred his dogs once, they lived in the garage, the mom was so aggresive she got out of the garage and attacked someone and was put down. He did love his dogs, although I have no idea why he bred them. The male was very timid from what I remember...but back to the story. My grandmom had no positive experiences with pits, she had nasty chi's all her life. My aunt had no excuse, she was telling me about all these nice pits she has met, shes just one of those people...
By the end of the night everyone was saying how beautiful and well behaved she was. My grandmother was even letting her give her kisses on the face. My aunt was even saying how she really wanted a dog. I guess everyone loves Veda!
Also my aunt and grandmother went upstairs to see the house. As soon as my little lab saw them they got a nice growl from her. I guess they really learned to throw the stereotypes out the window.

You should have gotten pictures of Grandma's face being eaten by the vicious pit bull . . . I mean . . . Grandma getting kissed by Veda :wink:

Isn't it great when people just open their minds for .5 seconds?

my in-laws said that if we got pitbull puppies they would never bring my husband's niece and nephew to our house...


guess that gives ME three or four less things to worry about.

:backRoll: :backRoll:

that's how I do it....I introduce them to my dogs. just about every one who meet them comes away with a different attitude about them, even if they only say "well I know TWO that aren't like that..." it's still progress.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

I find that the people that don't want to be around my pit bulls aren't people I want around anyway. :| lol

Good girl, Veda!
My mother-in-law says she does not trust Satin (lab/pit mix) who will do no worse than lick your face or steal your socks.
Yet her rat, I mean Yorkie, will bite everyone but her. Go figure

That is an awesome story! I'm glad Veda was able to convince them! :)

The owners of little dogs like Chihuahuas and Yorkies (some of the meanest, most human-aggressive dogs on the planet, seriously), are often wary of larger dogs, especially pit bulls, rotties, etc. It really is unfortunate...

People do have stereotypes based on breed. I mean, our little terrier mix Cody is a fear biter. And he will bite people he doesn't know, or if you reach for him too quickly, etc. (He was abused by his former owner). People don't believe us when we tell them this because he looks so innocent, yet they are scared of the pit bulls. Whatever... :rolleyes2:
