    Well bad news for pitties. :(
    My History teacher came to school with bandages on one arm cause when he was walking his dog he was attacked by two pit bulls. They didn't do too much damage and in my oppinion if they were really out to kill him they would've done a LOT more damage, but I wasn't there so I can't really say. But he grabed his small dog and had to hold it above his head and the one of the pits grabbed onto his arm. It really didn't do too much damage, just a few teeth cuts that aren't that deep. He also said he had some small cuts on his legs.

    The thing that erked me is that when I came to his room after school there where a big group of teachers talking about pitties and how dangerous they are! Most of their opinions were for banning pits and I got really pissed off. I never liked my teachers in the first place, but I was always very civil to them, but this just erked me the wrong way I guess. So I sorta butted in and gave them what I know about pitbulls and that it was the owners fault and all that, when they never even asked for my opinion. So they were sorta shocked and to tell you the truth so was I! I am very quite in class, I just sit there and do my work or whatever I am suppose to do and never get in trouble and there I was butting into a conversation that had nothing to do with me. So after that I was a bit embaressed with all them staring at me, so I left without getting my homework I needed.

    Now I'm dreading going back to school tomorrow. I am a little worried about getting ISS or something! I didn't say it rudely or anything but I had to talk a little louder than usual to make sure they heard me, but I am not doubting I won't get in trouble.
    I can deal with ISS cause I never get in trouble so one ISS won't kill me, but if they call my house and my dad finds out I am so dead!! Hopefully they don't call. Me and my big mouth! :(

    Good for You Babyblue!!! :D And because you are quiet most of the time they are more likely to pay attention to you!!
    I think your history teacher was in the wrong by lifting his dog in the air in the first place! If the Pits weren't jumping up he probably wouldn't have got hurt! And shame on the Pitties owner for not training them properly and giving people an excuse to bad mouth the breed!!!

    I hope you don't get in trouble!!! But I don't think you will be!! ;) Expressing your opinion is not a punishable offence in my opinion!! :D

    Thanks Gustav!!!
    I think he was worried about his dog getting chewn to peices by the dogs, but from the story he told our class it does sound like they were'nt trying to get him, just his dog.

    He kept blaming the dogs and not the idiot owners who let them roam!!! :mad:
    I hope your right about me not getting in trouble! That would really suck!!!!! :rolleyes:

    I hope you don't get in trouble. You certainly shouldn't. You didn't do anything wrong. Good for you for standing up for the Pitties! People like that drive me nuts; they are so narrowminded.

    Good Job BabyBlue! I always felt it was important to stand up for what I truly believe in, and if presented in a respectful manner sometimes you can change some minds! I hope that your teachers will realize that doing that was important to you and maybe they won't be so quick to form an opinion without all the facts present in the future. Neva, my APBT thanks you!

    Good for you. Teach those teachers the truth. By the way, whats a ISS? Is it like a detention? I always get in trouble at school, whole staff and school cops pretty much know me by name now. I wouldn't worry because you didn't do anything wrong.

    Thanks guys!!!
    I hope they get something out of my "speech" cause I never do that and when I do it is usually something that I feel real strongly about.
    Tell Neva your welcome! ;)

    Your so funny!!
    I don't think my dad would understand, he is pretty much against pitbulls anyways. :(

    ISS is In School Suspension. I either sit there the entire day in a small classroom with nothing to do or I have to clean up the stuff on the tables after lunch. EWWW!

    ISS is kinda fun... You hang out with your friends, have a quiet room to do work in, have some time to think, and best of all, you escape the cold, evil clutch of your demented teacher whose only purpose in life is to make your years in highschool sheer TERROR!!!! Sorry, got sidetracked :D However, be proud that you have made your voice heard and maybe you've changed someones view one pitbulls. Good For you!!

    Babyblue - I am so glad you voiced your opinion, and it sounds to me that you did it in a very adult way. I don't see that you did anything wrong, and I don't think you should get ISS for something like that. You were not "obstructing" in any way, nor were you being violent, or anything like that. You were just simply stating your opinion, and that IS your right.

    Good for you for standing up for pits and letting others know it is the owner to blame not the dog!

    I think you did the right thing BabyBlue. AND I think that you could take that opportunity to maybe print out our pitbull pamphlet or give your teacher the link to the sad pitbull website. Maybe that will keep him from spewing hatred! And you would be able to back up your thoughts and won't have to back down to get out of trouble. Just a thought

    :D

    I hope u do not get in trouble..maybe you can get a copy of breeze's report when she is done and give it to your teacher. Tell her that you have a passion about dogs and have read a great deal of info..write down the http to the flash on pitties, make sure u express your sympathy about being bit..it is scary to be attacked, even if the damage is minor. You might let her know even if nothing is said to you. Tell her u hoped that she didn't think it was out of place for you to express yourself...u might be suprised as to the reaction. I think most teachers respect a passion and if you express yourself sincerely...i am sure all will be fine. Let us know how things turn out..i will have my fingers crossed for you..make sure u have your info on you because being prepared just in case will take you a long long way in the respect department.
