Why love pitbulls?
Why love a pit bull?
Often in the course of my dailyactivities I am asked to explain how amental health professional and humanist(not humaniac) can be so involved withand be appreciative of dogs whose in-stincts urge them to fight amongst them-selves at every opportunity.
Perhaps Iinvite such questions, as I proudly displayan 11″ x 14″ picture of my stud dog “CH”Pedro” beside my children’s pictures onmy office wall. At any rate, the conse-quence of these questions is that I havespent considerable time pondering thisapparent conflict and will happily sharemy conclusions with anyone who cares toread further.
Now most of us sense that there issomething noble about having the cour-age to stick by our convictions. In fact,this wonderful country we live in wouldcertainly be vastly different were it not forthe convictions and courage of our ances-tors. Our heritage practically demandsthat we place a premium on convictionsand courage. But how does this relate toour dogs?
Well in my estimation a bulldogthat doesn’t start, has no convictions.One that starts and quits has no courage,and one that starts and sticks with it can.
