    Got a couple PMs regarding this...thought I would clear the air.

    First off. I have nothing against the breed and think they are great friggin dogs, provided a sound breeding, good training and responsible ownership.

    I simply don't like the way they look. That's it. We all have our likes and dislikes, and I just don't find them attractive. I dislike Boxers for the same reason. And Pugs, Shi Tzsus, and bulldogs.

    I wouldn't turn away a stray or anything, but while choosing a dog, they aren't near the top of my list.

    I will, as always, defend the breed as a quality dog though.

    Well said.

    Beware, though! German Shepherds and that type of dog have always been my favorite. I never had the least desire for a big dog with loose skin or any kind of Mastiff look. Charley never liked the German Shepherd.

    Bimmer's completely won Charley over. Charley brags about Bimmer more than I do, even. The two of them are thick as thieves.

    The Filas have me utterly besotted and, much to Charley's chagrin, stick right by me. When we come home, if he opens the door first, they'll plow right past him to get to me.

    So, beware . . . somewhere down the line, whatever you think you don't prefer will get you . . . and you will become . . . (insert Jaws' music). . . an Enthusiast.

    Yep, see...you just never know. My hubby told me for years he didn't like cats. PERIOD. I mentioned that I have the priviledge of having the most hateful cat in the universe living with me..........and he LOVES that cat. Go figure. :D

    My tom cat

    You know...That's true.I didn't like cats in the past because I just didn't know how they can be.But my mom adopted one and at first I thought we're going to keep him for a while and then we'll give him away.But that didn't worked because I just fell in love with him.He's the best.
    I know that one night I was so sick (I threw up all night) and my stomach hurt bad.And from the pain I was curling and moving in bed.Usually if I did this he would just go away,but then (probably he sensed there was something wrong) he got even closer to me,to my stomach and kept me warm.I couldn't belive that.He managed to calm me down a little bit.But you know...I couldn't belive that.
    And you know that now I love him soooo much.He's just the perfect tom cat!
    Hugs,Nicco :)

    Heh, I know what you mean too, and I agree with Renee. I have a very obnoxious little dog, of a breed that my dad swore looked like rats with wigs, and after a week of the 'rat' being in the house, he would call that rat and hold him. :p

    So yeah, beware. ;)

    There are some dogs I just can’t stand to look at (I’m not tell you what breed they are ;)) anyway my family makes fun of my sheltie Lexi, they say we have the only Rat dog in the world, they don’t admit it but they love her ;) everyone has their likes and dislikes.

    Few? It seems like Pits are one of the better represented breeds here, and if you join up with the AmStaff owners, you might even be a majority. If you count all of us who just love the little monsters but don't have one, we're definitely the majority by a large margin. :D

    I don't think the greyhound type breeds aren't very attractive, but hey, that's one of the reasons there are so many breeds.


    I'm not a huge fan of some of the "Pumpkin Headed" pits you see sometimes either, but I really like the looks of the normal blocky headed ones. My friend's female Pit is really pretty. Sixty five pounds and nothing "extreme" about her.

    I have to agree that pitties are goreous!! We are definately admirers of the breed! Everyone has their own opinion though...we're not toy dog fans (no offense intended), but last summer my brother and his family were over for a weekend with Peanut, their maltese. Any time they left him, to go to the store or wherever, he would cry and I would pick him up and and comfort him till they got home. I tell ya, when he was all curled up in my lap seeking comfort, I loved that little critter like one of my own!!
