MY BLOG IS USUALLY ONLY for my updates to my debut novel WHITE HEAVEN WOMEN being released as e-book 7th August, 2012 but there has been so many posts about how evil certain dog "types" are, I felt the need to off load my own experiences of these "evil" dogs from yesterday.
I do not have a dog, yet, but I hope to have another one when I retire. Wanted to share this with everyone for and against pitties and their "types."
Yesterday, as other days, I watched about 10 or more dogs of different breeds and sizes, from huge to miniature having a blast, OFF LEASH and UN-muzzled. Such a joy to watch!
Pittie "types" and pedigree American pittbulls were amongst them and although the pittie "types" didn't know me, as I a complete stranger to dogs and owners, sat there on the grass watching, my face level with the pittie "types" dogs faces, the pittie "types" approached me to say "hello" doggie style, with wagging tails. Well, their whole bodies "wagged" actually..lol...as they brought balls for me to throw or just to sniff me. It was all awesome!
Lets all remember that a "pack" is about 5 or more canines and people together and, including the dogs there was roughly 20 in this "pack."
Not one dog showed aggression to the other dog breeds or the people AND more to the point, there was no fear in the humans for the pittie "types" as their tiny little dogs chased the pittie "types" and some huge dogs and visa-versa. The little dogs were not yappy either as can be seen by bad dog owners, who often let these tiny dogs run rampant and untrained because they are "small" - which shocks me. Dogs should all be trained properly.
Anyway, I wish the world had the same view as all those dog owners yesterday, who had obviously trained and socialised their dogs with other dogs, and with people, in order for this fun Kindergarten type doggie play to continue for a whole hour! I loved it.
I pray to God that BSL or muzzling is NEVER brought into force here. It would take away this old girls daily joy in my novel writing or editing breaks!
It DEFINITELY IS NOT THE BREED, IT IS THE DEED and ALL BAD DOG OWNER, no matter their dogs size, SHOULD BE PUNISHED, NOT THEIR DOGS. DOGS ARE NOT BORN BAD, people MAKE them bad. Heck, PITTIE "TYPES" AND OTHER BREEDS ON THE DANGEROUS DOGS LISTS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD PROVED IT YESTERDAY, RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF ME. I however, do not need to learn this myself, I've always known it.
*** I watched the "Dogs in the City" show on TV yesterday. I was appalled to see children ill-treating a large young dog, smacking it in the face with their own toys, jumping on it with their full weight, ramming their dolls pushchair into the dog and chasing it around their home, etc.
The parents JUST smiled. SHOCKING! SHOCKING! No wonder some family dogs eventually turn and bite if parents are not training their kids on how to respectfully treat an animal!!! And the poor dogs are killed for trying to stop being tortured. grr. Hell, they cant tell the kids to stop in human language. I would turn too if I was constantly being tortured like that by anyone. I'm SO glad the dog trainer, his name eludes me right now, showed this family how to behave with one of Gods innocent creatures.
Blessings to all and keep fighting the good fight to end the BSL dangerous laws worldwide and bring in something more educated and informed! It is NEVER the dogs fault, as the latter part of my post above proves.
