Pitbull Owners Survival Guide

« The Breed Exterminators? - Speier And Newsom Top List Of California SB861 Backers | Main | Worldwide My Dog Votes Solidarity Candlelight Vigils Against Breed Bans, Canadian Bill 132, SB 861 »

August 20, 2005



Why don't we say that whenever a dog is caught without a leash on, all dogs are banned from all public places for the next week. Maybe then owners would take responsibility for their animals so the other owners don't get angry at them

S. Ellis

I'm all for banning dogs in public parks. If 100% of dog owners were courteous and cleaned up their dog's excrement there would be no problem. But in my experience at least 25% of dog owners just let their dogs poop in public places and walk away to let someone else step in later. Many public spaces in my area are nearly unusable because of all the dog poop everywhere. We gave you a chance and you blew it. Time to ban dogs from public spaces.

To those of you who are trying to eliminate the animals that you think are vicious, I say you can all go to HELL! You hipacrits are sounding just like Hitler when he tried to eradicate all jews. At my home I have my dogs and they are my children, you eliminating them is like killing my children and I know there are millions of people who feel the same way. If America is the land of the free, then keep our lives free, so many people can decide to take God out of the Schools, but they love making money; HELLO dumbass IN GOD WE TRUST is written on the US currency, these animals trust us, and depend on us for LOVE, food, warmth, and caring. This sounds like a child to me, and any good parent would lay down their life for their child. We are not a communist nation; we don't eradicate those who we think are bad or have the breed to be bad. Plain and simple all animals have the right to life just like humans, we hunt for food, so do animals; we love, so do animal; we cry, so do animals; we protect what is ours(family,etc.), so do animals; we feel, so do animals. All in all, ANIMALS are more like us than we want or care to admit. Pit bulls are no different than any other, this plan of action is like saying to take up all black people and put them in jail for the possibillity of a crime that has not been commited yet or may never be, we have done this before in this great country maybe you remember the great Indian Wars, we have learned from that cotastophy; lets not make another one. I incourage all those with any pet, any child, any spouse, any loved one, look at them in the eye and tell them I will kill you and your breed all through California and then the World, if you can do that and live with yourself for doing, then just kill yourself, because you are the person that will make living less fun and enjoyable for others just because your a pathetic miserable little person. Remember GOD wanted to eradicate the earth, and vowed to never do that again until he decided for the end. Last time I checked these people wearn't god. We need to vote against this evil wrong doing, or sign our selves up for destruction from those perfect people, who think they know better. And by the way I am still waiting to meet a perfect person. Let's stop this travisty, before it starts, other wise just end it for everyone, because we all have alittle pit bull in all of us, it is not the breed, it is the upbringing, just like hate begats hatred in others, love will begate love, trust, and freindship with others; ANIMALS AND HUMAN ALIKE. This is my feelings, you need to decide on yours, but remember before you go to bed were do you want your children to be, safe with you were they keep you safe, or DEAD because of what they are; NOT WHO.

I just came from a meeting with Westmoreland Co.Parks and Recreation. They have banned my German shepherd, because it barks at Park maintance personel on motorized carts. And they said some older people complained because they were afraid of it knocking them down. He was never off the leash or the leash never from my hand.

In a way I am glad that I live in a small county with little extra money to pursue breed bans or breed laws, however lately I have began to worry that because this is such a small community that one dog bite could send this county on a witch type hunt for all so called "vicious dogs". there are several known dog fighters in the area and if a dog bite were to occur it would probley be caused by one of those people. Why should I suffer, more importantly why should my dogs suffer from others behavior? Politicians who support these breed laws are nothing but "knatzi's" of the dog world. We need to stand up as American Dog Lovers and do to them as we did to Hitler's Knatzi's in the war. We should over throw them and make it known that we will not stand for their behavior. God knows there are enough of us dog lovers to do so.

I am a senior with two well behaved, gentle small shelties. I will walk my dog in any park if I so choose. As long as I pay taxes like everyone else does, I will not be told I am not allowed to walk in the park with my dogs. I make sure there is never any "debris" left anywhere and have never had any problems. How dare they exclude me because I have two small dogs who do no harm. What will they do? Arrest me and throw me in jail?

Dianne Singer

Dog owners are taxpayers, but we're being made into second class citizens by lazy, media-hungry, unthinking politicians. It's okay for sports teams to drive on pedestrian walkways to park close to the ball diamond (I guess athletes can't walk to the diamond from the parking lot) and leave their garbage behind, but dog owners get banned from parks. It's okay for bicyclists to yell "Get out of the way!" at elderly pedestrians, ride two and three abreast and not one of them give way to a pedestrian, and refuse to ring their bells to let pedestrians know they're coming up on them (athletes who can't move one finger), but dog owners get banned from parks. We're told what breeds we can and can't own. Our dogs are threatened by politicans who won't and probably can't deal with real issues. I'm so angry I can't write any more.

D. Shields

I wouldn't be surprised if my local area doesn't go with "No Dogs Allowed' in public parks. They have been headed that way for years. (They seem to feel tha local parks have become the domain of the 'Paying Customer'. Sports Teams, & other cash ready Orgs, & Clubs would be some examples.) Cash poor towns/cities will see this as a way to boost revinues, & curry favor with the business that support sports teams etc. And they do pay more taxes than J.Q. Dog owner as an individual.

I read all the time about 'dog damage' to parks & sports areas within those parks. Any digging, turf distubance, or poop is directly attributed to dogs., when if fact, many of the Perps are raccoons, skunks, cats, possums. The local Gov's own lazyness in mowing the grass, & the fact of normal insects, mice, voles being present in the park seems lost on these people. Dog owners are the 'Smokers' of today. We are well & truly on our way to becoming social pariahs if we don't get off our collective duffs & Organize! BSL is just the beginning.
