This must be an anti-pitbull following. Didn't realize it was a "blog". I'll pay betterRead More attention next time when commenting.

Boss is a one-note wonder. He has nothing better to do with his time than remark on something heRead More knows nothing about. The scary thing is that he probably votes and that is why CT has a bunch of idiot democrats in office.
A New Londoner April 24, 2014 at 09:09 am
Miss Krys-Sadly there is little to no more actual 'news' or 'journalists' on The Patch. Most ofRead More it's just personal blogs on display. Nothing more than PIDIOTS shooting off their mouths under many different guises. You're better served by sniffing out a real news source as most of the rest of us have already done. This place is just for kicks and giggles. Especially Bossy here, s/he is a real trip.

@tribble "all Harriet is proving is that media DOES report other dog attacks, when and if theyRead More happen. " It's not "if they happen" - they do happen. However, the media frequently does NOT report other breed incidents - that has also been proven in the past - unless they are catastrophic in nature. Not everything gets reported.

Can we kill M Vick and the puppy doe guy
Harriet Laurin April 24, 2014 at 08:41 am
#John - I did see the stats. I also know that such studies often are flawed, with dogs beingRead More misidentified, etc. - sometimes even by professionals. I will never advocate for a breed ban, because that is an ineffective policy that punishes an entire classification based on the actions/incidents associated with a relative few in terms of the entire population. I will always advocate for increased education of owners, what it means to be a responsible owner - including providing the dog with proper training, exercise, nutrition, veterinary care, socialization, licensing, microchipping, adherence to leash laws, etc. - and that should be for EVERY dog owner. And for the record, both of my dogs are "fixed" so they will never add to the pet overpopulation problem. Both went to obedience school, and the PB earned the AKC CGC on her first try. She was also the ONLY dog in the class who passed. While prepping her for that test, she went to a crowded mall where a plate of food was dropped on the floor in front of her. Most dogs would have jumped on the opportunity to scarf up what was on that plate; not her. She looked to me for direction, which was "leave it" - and that's exactly what she did. While training towards becoming a certified service dog, she flew a round-trip flight 5.5 hours each way, in coach. A TSA agent happened to be seated two rows behind us, and when he saw my PB at my feet, he made some comments to another passenger that weren't very nice about my dog, based solely on her breed. He didn't know it, but that passenger he was talking to knew me and she didn't tell him. However, by the end of the flight, he reversed his position and told her that he would never have believed it if he hadn't seen it for his own eyes - but he's flown many, many flights and had never seen a more well-behaved dog and watching her work - which included staying quiet the entire flight, escorting me down the length of the aisle to the lavatory and back, without batting an eye at any of the many other passengers on the plane - changed his previously negative view on PBs. Unlike some PB-proponents who deny a PB could attack, I admit they can - as can any other dog. It often comes down to responsible ownership and management of the dog, rather than the actual breed.

What I think is really scary and a public health threat is the violence PEOPLE do to pit bulls. WeRead More kill millions of them every year. They are tortured in fighting rings, look at what Vick did. Humans are a very dangerous breed. THere should be laws or something to protect the public--and animals--- from people.

Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.

For the record, Magic Johnson contracted HIV (not AIDS) through sex with a reported 10,000 differentRead More women. Do you actually believe you can only contract HIV though gay sex??? Christie, your comments are so ridiculously ignorant, that I’m almost willing to believe that you are putting us all on. I almost believe that there’s some poster who created this character of an extremely ignorant bible-thumping woman, and he is right now having a great laugh at how he’s put one over on us all. If that’s the case, then my hat’s off to you!

wait Hookerman - out of those 10,000 chicks, 1 of them slept with a homosexual -- frankly I heard heRead More was on the 'low down' but either way, his promiscuity got him. So my point is Salient! The bible warns that the wages of sin is death -- what more do you want? HAPPY EASTER!

Hookerman; thank you very much for differentiating me from ChristieN.

Fake Boss Hogg. Kinda funny coming from a guy that picked "Almost Brilliant" as a handleRead More a week ago...
Notbricktrash April 22, 2014 at 01:04 pm
This guy is psycho I see all negative posts on this breed. Us all who are for the breed let's postRead More positive things. This guy has no life obviously to sit and pick apart a breed. My dad was a meter reader in the day he was attacked and bitten 9 times on different occasions. 2 of them were German sheps, rest were ankle biters. ALL dogs bite. My parents were ignorant with pit bulls I remember my neighbors bf had them in my yard when I was a kid and my moms screaming they are vicious get inside. (They were sweet dogs) that goes with them being uneducated about the breed. They witnessed my neighbors pit mauling the neighbors small dog (their dog was nice until the crack heads put him in a cage 24/7) they are like till recently they are dangerous blah blah blah and know what I educated them I now rescued a pit lab who is a big baby and whom my parents adore. I cross post animals all over and many are pit bulls. They say 1 of 600 finds homes. It's sad cause in my dad's years of meter reading not one pit bull attacked him. 2 days in a row I saw 2 pits running in and out of traffic on a main road by my house. Almost hit them. I got out of my car called them over (had no fear as if it were a smaller dog or a shep) they came to me I grabbed their collars and what did they do? They licked me. I'm in school to be an nj Animal control officer and an associates in vet tech and I can bet you in my life I will support the pit breed in some successful way. I will never hate the breed or judge them. I've got bitten by a smaller dog breed do I judge them? No. So educate before you discriminate

Anyone who has ever seen a new litter of puppies will notice that some in the litter are bold andRead More daring while others are shy and cautious. (Check out "Too Cute" on Animal Planet Saturdays) They haven't had a chance to learn anything yet, but their inherited personalities are already obvious. Dogs have been bred for specific purposes since they were first bred from wolves. Inbred personalities should be taken into consideration when training a new puppy. You'll find that it's a lot easier to train your border collie to herd your chickens than to break him/her of chasing them because it is an inbred drive/desire. Other breeds would ignore the birds entirely. Most pit bull owners know their dogs and train/treat them accordingly. Others don't provide the training and socialization needed. These are the people who sue the police when their dog gets shot while attacking an innocent victim. They can't believe that their dog was capable of hurting anyone, therefore the police must have shot the wrong dog. This situation has been in the news far too often to be coincidence. Owners must be responsible for knowing, training and controlling their dogs. I can't imagine the heartbreak of losing a treasured pet, then being hit with a lawsuit because they had so much faith in their pet's good behavior that they let them roam the neighborhood.
