Braden is ten years old, he runs Score in flyball, and helps me with the dogs at flyball tournaments...he also works Score out and about in public (Pit bulls on parade in Baltimore for one). He's very proud of Score...(he has his own dog, a great labrador).
He and his mom went on a hike with me on Sunday...with Score, Puzzle, Fig and their lab, Snoozer. At one point, Braden was up ahead on the trail, and his mom shared this story with me.
Saturday night, they went out to dinner, and Braden says to his mom, "I've been thinking, and I think your car is the best for this. I want to take your Yukon to an auto detailer (his mom said at this point "he is a bit confused about what a detailer does), and get it painted on the sides. Your Yukon is the longest car we have so it'll work well. I want to have 'Punish the Deed, Not the Breed' painted on the sides!" His mom had to have a discussion with him about while she fully supported the message, there was no way they were painting the side of her car with *anything*...and that while he can keep the message in his heart, and share the sentiment with others...it wasn't going on her car.
I love this kid!
I told his mom that I'd share this story with my pit bull loving friends!
