Be careful my friends…

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Be Careful Lovers…The other day Grandma, Daisy Lynn and I were at the park enjoying a beautiful early fall day…That is until we turn the corner and a couple is walking towards us with their unleashed pit bull.  Ugh…What?  REALLY???

I holler, “Please leash your dog!!!”, over and over again and they are standing there looking at me like I said please kill your dog.  It is freaking amazing the stupidity of some people.  It’s not a negotiation – it’s the law.  So, the rather large African American man starts yelling at me, telling me that the reason there are leash laws are only for bad dogs like mine who is pulling on her leash.  He is demonstrating to me howl his pit bull can sit on command.  By now I have figured out that I am dealing with little to no reality with this guy so I tell the girl he is with that there is a pit bull ban in this town.  She looks at me again like I told her to please kill her dog.  She yells at me,  “my dog is a boxer!” In her most adamant tone…

This is going from bad to worse.  I really feel sorry for all the boxers out there that have to put up with this scam to label pit bulls as boxers or lab boxer mixes.  It really is insulting to the breed and to people like me who have to hear this over and over again.  I ask you, howl are all of these boxers and labs getting together to fill every shelter to the gills? Do these people really expect us to believe this?  What is so frightening is some young families do believe this and go home with these unworldly lab boxer mixes putting them and others at risk.

Geezus things go from bad to worse as the man is getting more and more agitated with his demonstration of commands.   I wind up calling our Animal Control Officer and exit the scene.  The couple wander off with their unleashed pit bull type dog and we make it home with all of our limbs and Daisy Lynn intact.  The ACO shows up and tickets them for no license and having their “boxer” off leash.

For the life of me I cannot understand this current fascination with pit bull type dogs.  So far this year 28 humans have been mauled to death by pit bull type dogs.  28!  The animals that have been killed are countless.


Just a day in the park – fearing for your life and the lives of those who you love.

More not loving this current fascination later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB protecting all of us…)

PS – leash your dog
