"I never thought I'd be this close to a pit bull..."

This is where to talk about Pit Bulls!

Postby TheRedQueen » September 19th, 2011, 9:18 am

We were at the fundraiser for my foster, Stone, this weekend at the local pet store. My other foster pit bull, Flower, was there also (looking for a home!) They were romping around the store, off leash at one point, customers were coming and going. One woman stopped, and was petting them...squatted down on the floor for them to both give her kisses.

She said..."so what kind of dogs are these?"

I responded..."they're both pit bulls...Stone is a year old, and Flower is 6 months old"

She straightened up a bit, but didn't get up...and looked at me and said..."I never thought I'd be this close to a pit bull...I believed the media reports and stuff..." She trailed off and looked back down at the two goofballs, trying to outdo themselves in getting closest to her so they could lick her face.

We all laughed and said...yeah, they're only dangerous if you were worried about being smothered with kisses, or tripped because they're trying to stop you for more petting.

She left the store with her bag of food, and a BIG smile on her face.

Nice work Erin, Stone, and Flower!

Too bad she wasn't also looking to adopt! That would have been the icing on the homemade dog biscuit.

That is really great. Good job Stone and Flower for being good breed ambassadors. Hopefully that gal will spread the word about her good experience.

I was walking my dog today down a road, when we approached a sign flipper. My Sweetie Pie went right up to him to check him out and get some pets. He asked what kind of dog she was, and I told him she was a pitbull. He said "Oh really?? She doesn't look ferocious at all!!" I said "That's because she's NOT." I said a few things, one of them being that if you are mean to ANY dog, or keep them on a chain outside on the concrete for hours at a time and pay little attention to them, it will probably be aggressive. After I talked to him for a bit, I think he got the picture that not all pitbulls are "ferocious"...me on the other hand..... :dance:

I can't believe people actually think like that. In my opinion it's doggy racism :(
