Hey guys,

I hope everyone is doing well. I'm sorry I've been away for a while. Just busy with relocating and work. Montgomery and I are doing great... he's fat and happy and snoring up a storm next to me as I write this.

A local news station has really gone overboard it must have been a slow news day so they decided to pick on pitty bulls. Terrible photo and a stupid article. Can we get some proper comments up on this thing please?

I don't think the article is so bad but from the comments it sounds like the news segment was horrible and filled with nothing but pictures of aggressive dogs and seemed to be very biased. The article makes some really good points and admits, without saying so, that breed bans don't work. The Pit Bull debate is a never ending one. It's not going to go away until people quit over breeding them. In the 70's it was Shepherds and in the 90's it was Rottweilers.

Maybe in 2011 it can be those annoying yelping dogs that bite your thumb when you try to st on the sofa because their owners think they're little and cute so they don't need any obedience training.
