Canine Nazi Germany?

Vacation is over tomorrow...:[ I'm not ready to go back.

I am so fucking angry. I'm angry at Maureen Faibish, I'm angry at the owners of the 8mo. old pit that attacked the little girl in Santa Rosa, I'm angry at the old lady in Glen park who's pit attacked her son and then turned on her when she tried to intervene. Either these dogs weren't fixed, or the dogs were aggressive and the owner should have called in a behaviorist. I'm angry that I can't walk down the street with my dog without glares, mean comments, etc. HELLO, PEOPLE!!!! MY DOG DIDN"T DO ANYTHING WRONG!!!

Note to world: Please stop punishing people for what others did.

Ashby is a good dog, god dammit. She's fixed and she LOVES people. I hate that these stupid people have changed the way I look at her (instead of being silly snuggle muffin play monkey, she's something I have to fight for). I'm angry that I have to keep fighting. Every day, I have to talk to someone and try to open their eyes that, yes, it's true that pit bulls are on the top of the attack charts...but they're also the most popular dog in CA. The only reason it appears that we have a "pit problem" is because the fucking media has so blown everything out of proportion - as usual. I'm angry that in Denver, they are searching people's homes for their dogs and killing them. What is this? Canine Nazi Germany? Killing the ones that don't fit in? FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU AND YOUR ANTI-DOG IGNORANT RANTS! FUCK YOU FOR NOT EDUCATING YOURSELVES! WHY DOES EVERYONE IN THIS FUCKING COUNTRY RELY ON THE MEDIA'S OPINION ON EVERYTHING? THINK FOR YOURSELVES YOU ASSHOLES! You believe in God so much? Why don't you use the brain He gave you and form opinions of your own, huh? Humans are *supposed* to be the most intelligent of all creatures on earth...but really I think the dogs are smarter.

I'm so fucking fed up, I can't even see straight. WE HAVE A WAR GOING ON IN IRAQ, PEOPLE! I best friend is fucking out there...and we're sitting around worrying about a bunch of DOGS! WHAT THE HELL IS *WRONG* WITH YOU PEOPLE?! What? Is it old hat? Is it no longer fashionable to be upset about it? Our soldiers are STILL out there, you motherfuckers...they're dying every day, and you're worried about a few dogs? Did you know that there are approximately 24 deaths each year in dog attacks? That's for the ENTIRE COUNTRY! There's more dying every DAY in Iraq, right now, and you're worried about a bunch of fucking dogs?! There are more than that dying each day from car accidents, D.U.I.'s, lighting, skydiving, you name it, and you will most likely die from it before a dog gets you! YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE HIT BY LIGHTNING THAN TO BE MAULED BY A DOG! SO GET THE FUCK OVER IT!

I constantly feel like I'm standing in the middle of a crowded room screaming, and nobody so much as glances over.

Well, if you decide to glance my way, please read this article in SFGate. Please pass it on.

Exactly whats in my head

Sometimes it feels like it would be easier to just go off like that on people, doesn't it? But I don't. It would only make me look like an aggressive dog owner that has a pit as a status symbol, and that would be even worse.

Yeah I know the feeling. I have petitions against the ban and I had to stop asking people if they would sign it because I got a lot of "I like the ban, they should kill all of the pit bulls!" I couldn't take hearing that. I mean if someone is going around and getting signatures for something they are passionate about how can someone feels its ok to tell them what they love should die? Now I just have a shirt that says "End the pit bull ban in Denver, ask me how." That way I won't have to listen to the evil ones, they just don't have to come up to me if they don't like pittys.

Oh my god! That is HORRIBLE! You are so awesome for fighting it, though! It's too bad, too, because if they would just open their minds a little bit and listen to what you have to say, they might not necessarily change their minds, but at least that tiny seed of knowledge would germinate, and maybe at least change their minds about killing them. What, should we go around killing all the African American and Hispanic people in LA just because, when they racial profile, they come up at the top of the crime rate? I don't think so. It's so simple that it's just because there are SO many pitties that there are so many occurances...Why can't they understand??

Part of the reason I like my job (I'm a Hairstylist) is because I see so, so many people...and I talk to every single one of them about the pittie issues. It's awesome because 1) they're forced to listen to me, cuz by the time I start talking about it, I'm half way through their service, and 2) somewhere deep inside them, there's the fear that I might fuck up their hair on "accident" if they don't at least listen. I've opened a lot of people's eyes that way. Or, at least they tell me I did. Ofcourse I'm really sensitive to their reactions, cuz I don't want to abuse my position too much, but they at least get a teeny little speech, and if they ask further (as they inevitably do) I answer them. I make them think they're the ones who brought it up.

Yup, thats all we can really do, try to inform the public of reality instead of the shit the media fills their heads with. By the way, your pitty is adorable!
