    Ok so heres the deal people i've been posting on this blog for the past couple days trying to dispel all the rumors about our dogs and trying to bring to light the facts and change the views of the public. That website is a national publication, millions of people subscribe to it so i figured it would be a great place to voice our opinions for the general public to see. I've been posting under the name BP, if anyone wants to help out and try to do good for our breed just post something positive about our dogs, thanks

    I accidently posted my thing twice, but this is what I wrote: I got a bit long winded:
    "I am going to have to agree partly with BP on this...
    While what the public sees as "Dogfighting", where we are told these dogs are beaten in order to get "mean" and "baitdogs" are used. That may be done in Amateur dogfighting, which is usually just a bunch of punk kids that got a dog, they claim is an American Pit Bull, but it's actually a American Bully, and they try to get it mean in order to fight. These same uneducated punks are the ones who want to make their dog human aggressive, because they want it to be a guard dog.
    The true American Pit Bull Terrier is not a guard dog, and it shouldn't be trained to be a guard dog. It's against its nature to be human aggressive. The Dogmen of the past, the ones who made the APBT into the great dog it is, used to fight their dogs in the pit, but would be able to bring the dog home, and have it sleep beside their child without even a problem. The American Pit Bull Terrier used to be America's Sweetheart. The Little Rascals ran around with Petey (an American Pit Bull Terrier), and one of the most decorated dogs in WWII named Stubby was an American Pit Bull Terrier.
    Now this breed has become America's Boogie man, though most Americans couldn't point out an American Pit Bull terrier if their life depended on it. There are 20 different breeds that are mistaken as an American Pit Bull Terrier. So, if we eliminate the breed like one gentleman above suggested, then they would eliminate all "pit bull" look alikes, which even including the beloved lab from time to time.
    But back to the other issue at hand, a true dog man doesn't fight their dog to the death. The two dogs would fight in rounds. At anytime, one of the dogs could bail out. At the beginning of each round, there is a line. If the dog doesn't want or can't mental fight anymore, it won't cross the line, and the fight is over. He isn't forced to go in.
    I do agree those that dogfighting shouldn't be done in the US because it is illegal. I also agree that the way Mike Vick killed his curs was insane and completely wrong. Like BP said, a bullet to the head would have be sufficient, because the dog shouldn't have to suffer.
    I wouldn't compare deer hunting and dogfighting, but dogfighting and hog hunting would be a better comparison. The dog hunts down the boar, holds it until the hunter arrives, and then you kill it as quickly as possible. (though some wait until the hog is tired and then get close enough to stab it, which I guess is a bit more rough hunting.).
    In the end though, PETA is a common enemy to all dog owners. Right now, they want all American Pit Bull Terriers eliminated from the world, but their true goal is to stop all pet ownership, because they feel like pets are our slaves, though I feel more like we are slaves to our pets. ;)"
