I own a lovable and goofy Pit bull that i am training to be a therapy dog. Partly so I can go into work with mom at the nursing homes she runs and spread a little sunshine and partly so i can stick my tung out at breed haters and go nananana...nana.... but anyways. i'm just so sick of people who are mean towards my dog and I just because he is a pibble, mind you a 60lb dog that just got beat up at the dog park last week by a 10lb yippy thing. We were at the park enjoying ourselves and their dog came in and attacked him, he didn't do anything sept hit the ground and start screaming, (so much for big bad pitty huh) but what happens? Their dog draws blood on my dog and im the one that gets cops called on them, and its my dog that gets kicked out and told not to come back, even tho the other dog wasn't hurt at all. it has also changed the way cops in this town view me. Before if i got puled over for something stupid like going 5 over the speed limit or having an outed tail light they just warned me or ticketed me and i was on my way. now if the dog is in the car they all wanna know if i have drugs and are trying to find any excuse to search my car and be nosey as all hell. and after they let me go they follow me to my destination or at least to the edge of town. I also get told all the time that I will never be able to get him registered as a therapy dog because of his breed and i am just so sick of people picking on a breed. people preach all the time that you shouldn't bully others, and you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, and racism is bad, but judging a single dog by its breed is just that, its bullying, and doggy racism. How can people say that all people are different no matter what the race, but all dogs are the same if they are the same breed? ARG!!!! ok, im gunna stop here, i just had to vent.
