What if... by Coloran What if... by Coloran
I was thinking about how stupid BSL was the other day.

Not only is it banning dogs and putting restrictions on them, but its hurting the pit bulls reputation even more.

If there are no pit bulls in an area, how can people ever meet a good pit? How can they reconcile their opinion when all the pit bulls in their area are literally tagged as vicious dogs, with the signs, muzzles, tags, that these dogs must wear?!?

I just don't know!

I was reading up on BSL here :pointr: [link]

*end rant*

Ooh, so THAT'S what BSL is! Breed-specific legislation.. that's just horrible!
I really like the colors in this! Using just purples and blues ks really cool. The way in which you put the words in a big bubble like that, then off to the side, is a very cool concept.

But thank you! :D

Agreed! I own a pitbull of my own and he is the sweetest, one of the most amazing dog of all the amazing dogs out there! Every time I walked him in the street, people would move away or those who like him come up and say "Awwww what kind of dog is he?" and I would reply he is a pitbull and they would just run away. I remember once a man came up to me asking if he was friendly as he and his JackRussel came up to greet us. He asked what kind of dog mine was and I replied "He is an American Staffordshire" He looked at me and back at my dog, then he said "Huh, cute. Looks a lot like a pitbull."

Pit Bulls are banned in my area. -_-, i don't get it, pits aren't just mindless dogs, chances are they wont just attack some random dog or child walking down the street.

I know there is a few vicious dogs but, they are more reactionary and getting scared by loud noises like children and babies. And my pitbull mix is a big softie but, even he does not like children.

I agree completely as Pitties are already banned here in the UK, how are people supposed to know that there are good dogs out there but it doesn't help when Staffies are gaining the same reputation as Pits.
On another note, I just watched a Dog Whisperer episode where they were looking at the top 3 breeds most associated with being vicious (Rotties in 3rd, GSD's in 2nd & Pits in 1st) & Cesar was showing how aggressive dogs can become non-aggressive and that you need to look at the human 1st, not blaming the dog. The final group of people that were surveyed to find out what they thought was the breed most associated with being aggressive said 'it's not the dog but how they were raised' - at least some people get it :D

I have a pitty named Sparky he's the sweetest kindest most lovable dog I ever owned in my life. Ever since the Pit bull stuff has been blowing up around my neighborhood suddenly people are scared to walk their kids in the park because of him. He doesn't bite I have three little nephews that come by my house all the time to play with him and he doesn't mind that they jump around or scream or pet him too hard he just sits there and takes it!. People need to understand that the dogs aren't the monsters it's the owners before i blame the dog I blame the damn owner with a shovel to the FACE!!

off topic, but i heard this little brat was teasing a friendly peacock with popcorn, and the peacock attacked the boy for being teased; BUT THE ZOO BLAMED THE PEACOCK! bottom line, we quickly judge animals before we, get to know them. :no:

3rd icons won't appear in your siggy just emoticons (the siggy made me :giggle: btw)
4th the avy is very cute (if u want to link 2 your profile w/ a text link not an image u put dev in place of icon like so ~Ninsegagirl was your icon a commish?)

My mom used to tell me when I was a kid that pitbulls literally "ate children." :XD: Like the boogeyman or something. But you know..around that same time, I was attacked by an old labrador. XD So yea..don't listen to your dad. :D

My mother was like that for the longest time. We'd get into such horrible arguments because of it. She's raised me to love and respect all animals - and would say how evil pit bulls were. Then she finally met a pit bull and realized she'd been wrong all along. My parents now have a pit mix along with a purebred and they both love the breed.

She denies she was ever like it now. :P

Pitbulls are just the kindest, sweetest, thins. While I do have a boy who can be a bit aggressive and over-protective, even he's still a sweetie. We currently have three mixes and I say ban the deed, not the breed.

i agree with you on this. if thay never meet one than how are thay supposed to ever know that thair are some good dogs out thair?! it's like, you live in an aria that is full of people that you "dislike", but if you really got out and meet them thair are good people out thair. same with pit bulls and other dogs.
