Gross Misinformation

This has to be one of the most uninformed and silly articles I have ever read (and that is putting it mildly). Amidst all of the stories about the amazing recovery of the Vick dogs and their ability to lead normal lives as DOGS (which is what they are - not unstoppable monsters), people still believe things like the mess in this article. I agree that there is a lot of irresponsible and negligent pit bull ownership out there, but that still does not make the dogs bad. It just makes those responsible pit bull owners (which is where I believe I fit in) have to work that much harder in order for our dogs to be treated normally. I feel horrible for the people and the dogs who are harmed by carless owners who don't train or contain their dogs. The first rule of dog ownership and training is not to set your dog up to fail.

Pit bull owners typically fall into two categories:

Creeps.

Or imbeciles.

Gods, these people make me weep and weep. Such ignorance, such closed mindedness.

It is truly truly shocking to me, also, the opinions that people hold without taking much time to research or without caring what damage they are doing to other beings.

What a jerk. He clearly wants Vick playing football. Stuff like this make me want to do an say things that are not "G" rated. I wonder if we can get a form letter together and start encouraging peole to e-mail and snail mail it to the station in protest to show that he is in fact INCORRECT and stupid!!

I agree that people should write letters if they are able. I think that people are entitled to their opinions, and if someone wants Vick playing football, they are able to say so. However, to attack and slander all pit bull owners is beyond incorrect and is not good journalism in any way.

Really...I am sometimes so ashamed of our fellow beings. I mean, people acutally walk around and function with these thoughts....

I told Princess just yesterday, I STILL think Vick (not still steaming about it or anything) should be neutered, tied to a rape stand... then euthanized. OK I think the Eye for an Eye thing should still work for animal abusers.

AND my girl owned a dogwalking company for 10 years and is highly HIGHLY involved with rescue. The only unpleasant pitbulls we have met are because a "Vick" abused them.

YA KNOW, humans can be just as "violent and dangerous" when not raised correctly and abused...

Humans do certainly seem to be the root of these kinds of problems...

I wrote a small email to him and so did Princess's former foster mom. I'm happy to share or join in on another thing.

My last comment that I wrote was that I'm only sorry I don't live in Boston so I can stop listening to the station and supporting their sponsors.
