Michal, I am not blaming the dogs for being dogs. That is a long ways
from the point. Dogs are dogs. They do what they were born to do.
I am saying that if those walks of yours were past lots that had Pit
Bulls instead of the dogs you do see, you'd feel a lot different. Ever
see a Pit Bull kill a cat or puppy? I mean, stand right there and watch
it? This really is a case where experience makes a whole lot of
Here is an example of what I mean: There is a family near us who has a
Pit Bull staked in their front yard. They have three children under 5.
No one in the family, except the father, leaves the house unless the
father goes out into the yard with a short leash and a 4 foot piece of
pipe that he uses to beat the dog. Once the father has the dog on the
leash and tied to the dog house the family makes a run for the street.
It is my understanding that he uses that pipe inside the house to, to
"raise the children right"
Do I blame the dog? No. But there is something wrong there. Something
needs to be changed. Someone is going to get badly hurt before 2012,
thats a fer shure. Hopefully it will be the idiot of a father.
Short answer: It'd make my walks a lot more pleasant. I do not like
walking past a home where beast(s) are straining at a chain to come and
There aren't pit bulls around my neighborhood that I know of, but I have
that exact same experience right now with other breeds. Taking my dog on
walk brings all kinds of barking dogs to edge of their property (fenced
trying to get at us.
May I add that if I felt the owners were taking care of these animals I
might feel a little less strongly. What I do see is underfed dogs that
are routinely beaten with a stick and left in the hot sun on a 15 foot
chain. These people don;t take any better care of their kids.
I'm confused. You admit the owners aren't taking care of these dogs, but
the same time you are blaming the dogs for it.
