This is so sad and just makes me more angry then ever.
Wow! I can't believe all the stories. I just read half of them and will finish later; great posting.
Wow thats well bad!!
great posting though!!
Those stories were awful! My heart broke when I read the one about the dog that got kicked in the chest. How awful can people be?
I can't even read those anymore. That just makes me so MAD!!!! I can't stand that dumb A** Mr. Bryant. He has put so much crap into people's heads about pit bulls. He doesn't even know what a pit bull looks like...I could just scream right now.
well i guess ill be going threw the same thing when i get my american bulldog thats terrible cause all of those breeds are great dogs people should be more scared of my yorkie than any of those my yorkie is clearly agressive and people insict on walking up to him i tell them i dont wanna here it when your bleeding and missing your hand
I read the first one and I said, forget it. If anyone kicked my dog, they'd better be ready to get kicked in the face.
Yeah I wrote in my story to that place but I don't think it made it up..maybe I should check again...
I was recently wanting to move into a new building because the one I live in is terrible..for crying out loud we have drug dealers and prostitutes here..uhh can I say GHETTO?!!
But anyways, so my family and I tried to apply for this new rental unit and the apartment is quite nice (this is going to be temporary anyways since we'll be looking for a house this spring)...but anyways (again! lol), we applied and got accepted no problem...good records and all YAY..BUT, we get a call a few days later saying that all of a sudden our application was denied...why? Because we own a pitbull. So automatically we're not allowed to live in that building..however, by all means DOGS ARE ALLOWED..just not mine..
Another incident? Well more than one...at least once a week I get verbally abused and harassed because of my dog and its breed. Some guy told me he'd kick and kill my dog if it ever came near him..some woman that lives on the first floor of my building said that my dog is ugly and that I shouldn't be living in a building because dogs are evil and they smell bad..however my dog is probably more hygenic than she'll ever WISH to be...friggen woman does her laundry once a month!
So my point is (and sorry for the boring rant), if anyone has any stories that are similar to this, please write in, as most of these will be brought up during committee hearings in Ontario I'm sure....stupid liberals here in Ontario don't even know the trouble this pitbull ban is going and is already causing...GAWD someone needs to wake up and smell reality!
*steps off her soap box* la la la la la
That's terrible, Pitbulliest! I would be COMPLETELY peeved if I wasn't allowed to move into a house cause I had a pit bull. How ignorant can somebody be?
If I was verbally abused or harassed... the things I would do... Anyway, you're very strong for not letting any of it get to you. I betcha there are a million people out there who would've gotten rid of there dog in a split second after that. You must really care for it .
Read the one about how the guy kicked the Pit Bull in the chest.
Woo! I'm pissed just reading it. I probably would've f****** knocked him out and kicked his dog in the chest and be like, "How does it feel?"
Man, sorry, had to vent the anger somehow.
LOL Big Dog you sound like a BOY! LOL Not that we all haven't thought that. Vent away
Haha! I am... just these ignorant, stupid people. They just piss me off .
No kidding. I wish smart people like us could run the world. Although I"m sure there are a lot of issues that we wouldn't all agree on BUT at least the animals would be treated right.
I couldn't agree with you more.
I wrote my story in. Mine isn't as severe as all those but if this never happened I'd still have Blacky! Heres what i wrote below...
Name: Leeann Boone
Date of incident: 6/20/1998
Description of dog: lab/pitbull mix
Details of the incident: Me,my friend and my dog blacky were outside in the backyard. Blacky was on his chain minding his own bussiness when my friend came up to him and started whacking him with a stick and of course he grabbed the stick and pulled her down by her arm but never bit her! Well she went and told her mom that he attacked her for no reson and never mentioned that she whacked him with a stick! So we wound up tacking him to a HS cuz of her!!!
WHAT THE HECK WAS THIS GUY THINKING???????
If someone did that to any of my girls, they'd be getting rocks, cans, sticks and (if possible ) boulders thrown at them. I'd kill them.
You tell them!
I went for my bi-weekly visit to a large pet supply store in Scarborough. While walking through the isles with my lovable companion (a 9-month-old Doberman puppy), a family of 4 met me at the corner of an aisle. The father immediately held back his children and raised his voice at me, saying, “PIT BULLS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN A PUBLIC PLACE!”
I very calmly said, “Sir…First off, this is a Doberman Pinscher and, secondly, this is a PET STORE.” I then called the manager over and she explained to the confused people that pets come in the pet store so the owners can try out the appropriate merchandise for their pets. The man lashed out again with extreme arrogance, “MY FAMILY ISN’T SAFE WITH THESE WOLVES AROUND!”
It’s really very sad that people aren’t aware of the truth about dogs!
I got pissed beyond belief when I saw that one. ^
Who knows what would've happened if I was there!
I just hate how much worse all of this has gotten. Not that Zeus and Tundra were ever truly accepted in public but nowadays its alot worse. I've gotten plenty of comments from people saying that if the law is passed in Ontario they hope it can be passed here in the future because my dogs should not be in the pet store with out muzzles on. Of course I get upset and it worries me. Both Tundra and Zeus have had such crappy past lives. I do enjoy the advantages of lving on the farm because I don't HAVE to deal with these people everyday.
I really don't know how you guys in Canada are going to deal with all of this petty bigotry. We've got our own share of fear-mongering fools down here in the States, but it's mostly directed at other people, not dogs. I do expect that to start becoming more of an issue before too long, though, especially in the cities where these dogs are thought of as gang dogs.
I kind of wonder how much of the backlash against Pits in Canada is because they are "American Pit Bulls." Some Americans have really done a job making the rest of the world hate anything American.
