A Day At The Park

Post by celticpitbulls on Sun Apr 18, 2010 7:13 pm

He is just like other dogs I would always say; He loves to go to the dog park to play every day Everyone loves him there, so it's ok; My dog won't fight--he wasn't raised that way But then one day, right before dark, A troubled young man came into the park He had by his side the biggest dog I'd ever seen, And unfortunately for us, both were quite mean We asked very nicely if they would just go; The dog answered with a snarl and the man with a harsh "NO!"Well his dog was a terror, threatening to all; Then he started a fight with a Lab over a ball They fought pretty hard and the man would not intervene; Then here comes my dog and pushes right in between He grabbed that big dog and thrashed him around; And with one quick jerk threw him down on the ground The Lab was able to escape; I heard everyone cheer; But my dog was now in a frenzy and would not let me near When he finally let go, what I saw stopped my heart; That big mean dog had been torn apart The authorities were called, the big dog was now dead; But they didn't take the big dog; they took my dog instead We all tried to explain that my dog saved the day; But because of his breed he was taken away You see my dog was a Pitbull and they don't get any breaks; One small incident is all that it takes dog had died; And though he hadn't started the fight, My dog was held responsible for what happened that night He was deemed a danger to all and sentenced to death; And I hold him now as he takes his last breath It's my fault that my dog is being killed today; Please listen for a moment to what I am going to say Everyone warned me about his potential to fight; I said it won't happen, I am raising him right And now my dog is paying the ultimate price; Because I was stubborn and wouldn't take the advice He only did what he was bred to do; Learn from our story; don't let it happen to you.

This poignant poem was written by, Sue Gauthier.

what it enplanes is that although some pittys are sound with other dogs if they are taunted enough they will react "just like any other breed" but they will certainly get the blame even though they never caused it.

Its sad but true, there was a once an incident in America. Im sure some of you's heard about it. A big dog i wont say what breed, but very big, he grabbed a child and was shaking the life out of him. A man had his Pit Bull out, for a walk, not even half the weight of this dog. He heard distressing screams, the little dog ran at the big dog, he hit him with such force, he broke the dogs ribs. The main thing is that he saved that young childs life. The big dog had to be put down unfortunatley.

Shocked Shocked I could'nt even imagine the way such a big dog could grab a child and shake the child around. A lot of damage, but lucky that the pit saved the childs life.

Yeah and lucky the Pit Bull wasn't sentenced to death. That was a long time ago before the B.S.L. came in..

My muzzle makes you frightened of me
But my eyes are gentle canít you see.
Donít reach out your hand,
for I am banned
And nobody dare
Stroke my soft hair.

Running in the fields wild and free
A dream denied to dogs like me
Soon weíll be part of history
a sad goodbye for all to see.
Why did men make us fight?
Just to feed their cruel delight

Walked in the dark, donít see the light
The law doesnít care about my plight
A blind man would hold me nice and tight
because in his eyes I would not bite
He would only see me as I am
Just a dog to touch his hand

For pitties sake, donít you see?
Cruelty is my destiny
You may ask what I most miss
A gentle touch and a loving kiss
You may ask what type of dogs are we?
Just old Pit-bulls longing to be free

see Sonya thats because your trying to keep him safe as prevention is the best quire, i used to do that to but the truth is its not good for him mentally, he'll just not like dogs at all as he's not getting to spend any time with his own being, when you come to the walks all our dogs have muzzles as we have to due to the control of dogs act, but its a safe environment to bring him even if he's not socialized like my own, you'll be surprised how he will fit in and just be himself :D
