Ok, I know by now we have all heard the horror stories about Pitbulls attacking and mauling the hell out of people and their pets...irresponsible 'vicious breed' dog owners...and the list goes on.
When i first got my dog from the SPCA when she was about 3 mths old, they told me that this 'breed' needs proper training/attention/discipline etc...I was well informed of what, as a 'responsible owner' was ahead of me.
So I take her for her first VET check up,shortly after I got her and the VETS first words were 'have you noticed the predjudice against your dog yet?'
I said..'whatcha talking about Willis?' as i had no idea what he meant. Then he says, 'Oh dont worry, you will. He goes on to tell me that no matter how good my dog is behaving and how bad other dogs are behaving, you will be blamed for all/anything that will happen. Also people will avoid being near you and you dog.'
I took his advice and have never thought about it until yesterday when I was at the 'dog park' with about 15-20 other dogs running, playing, swimming in the lake etc.....
On 3 separate occasions... a cocker spaniel approached tried biting her,i was getting angry as the lil dog kept following my dog and the owner thot it was funny until i said 'get your fucking dog away from mine before i get pissed' then i was chewed out saying maybe i should take my KILLER dog home and now it was all MY DOGS FAULT (even when she was sleeping and the lil fucker still approached)
later... a german shepard was aggressive to my dog, constantly jumping/snapping/growling towards mine even while my dog sat beside me and minded her own biz...once again I was told to take my dog elsewhere before she attacks and hurts someone...
lastly.. i watched a BOXER and a LAB go at it, i mean they were biting each other like crazy, the owners too afraid to jump in between them...eventually they were pulled apart and there was some blood. Yet....no one battered an eye or said a word to either owner.
so here was my 'KILLER DOG' just doing her thing yet she was approached by two dogs who showed teeth and biting (while both owners shrugged it off) not once did my dog bark, growl nothing. She just stayed by my feet.Later while mine slept in the grass , i was told to take her away, muzzle her, keep her on a leash etc....
It just amazes me that people dont see the actions of their own dogs yet mine is portrayed as a killer.
Other owners on here that own pitbulls/staffies/terriers etc will most likely know where im coming from.
Fuck, just sometimes it pisses me off. Maybe i should attack and maul the other owners and maybe ill be banned from breeding!
And just a big FUCK YOU to Vancouver city counsellor TIM STEVENSON.
