The problem with Time Magazine

The problem with Time Magazine and Charlotte Alter

http://time.com/2891180/kfc-and-the-pit-bull-attack-of-a-little-girl/

l. if you know ANYTHING about dogs and specifically about the history of American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and the other dog BREEDS lumped together and called “pit bulls,” you know that these dogs were bred to be SUPER/EXTRA people friendly so that the handlers would be able to work with them. ALL people aggression was bred OUT of these dogs.  So the first paragraph in this article begins with a lie AKA a MYTH not a FACT.  Apparently, the writer of this article had NO TIME to do any REAL Research nor to interview REAL DOG experts such as James Crosby and Victoria Stilwell.

Pit Bulls are not an aggressive breed of dog.

*According to the American Temperament Testing Association, APBTs have an 85.3% passing rate, compared to a passing rate of 81.9% for all breeds on average.

This is FANTASTIC, point by point, she tells it like it IS…

http://www.swaylove.org/the-many-problems-with-charlotte-alters-time-article-about-pit-bulls

2. Then this article goes on to quote DISCREDITED time and time and time again pit bull haters and fantasy dwellers such as Colleen Lynn, Merritt Clifton and PETA.  Yes, scratch the surface of these three together and you get nonsensical stats based upon media overreporting of so-called pit bull attacks (if it looks like a dog, call it a pit bull and there you have a headline and ridiculous stats to use to ban pit bulls), fear/paranoia and a call to KILL all the dogs (disguised as more logical sounding breed discrimination aka breed specific euthanization)… of course, they leave OUT that in places like Denver, CO where BSL has been implemented, dog bites have GONE UP because the REAL PROBLEM has NOT been dealt with. Breed is NEVER the problem. Ignorance about Dogs IS the problem.

Oh by the way, PETA kills healthy adoptable dogs and cats and has for years. And their founder, Ingrid Newkirk, was killing animals at a shelter, a job she relished. PETA thinks killing companion animals is a gift to them.

3. oh yes, and speaking about the Michael Vick dogs. 51 dogs who are doing JUST FINE. Eight became therapy dogs, and many are living in homes with children, cats, other dogs, in FAMILIES and shown NO signs of aggression. Not ONE.  These dogs were tortured, traumatized, terrified of humans, unsocialized, kept chained up 24/7 and made to fight tor their LIVES. Yet, once taken away from Vick’s Bad Newz Kennels and given tons of TLC and taught how to be dogs at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, BADRAP, the Monterey SPCA and other places, they’ve thrived.

4. Here is the REAL SCOOP on what causes DOG BITES and ATTACKS according to REAL DOG experts.

http://www.pasadenanow.com/main/opinion-everyone-in-the-community-is-concerned-about-agressive-dogs-and-stopping-dog-bites

Instead of blaming the dogs, how about holding PEOPLE accountable. People are the ones responsible for the abuse, torture, neglect and abandonment of dogs. Humans are the violent ones. Toxic macho masculinity culture teaches young men that they must be TOUGH and FIGHT, MAIM and KILL animals and other creatures. All of the serial killers have a history of hurting and killing animals then move on to human beings.

A few stats:

Every year, more than 2,000 children in the U.S. are killed by their parents or guardians either through abuse or neglect. A child is more than 800 times more likely to be killed by their caretaker than by a Pit Bull.

From 2001 through 2012, 6,410 women were murdered in the United States by an intimate partner using a gun—more than the total number of U.S. troops killed in action during the entirety of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.

…Women in the United States are 11 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than are women in other high income countries… http://americanprogress.org/issues/guns-crime/report/2014/06/18/91998/women-under-the-gun/

National Pet Road Trip to Carmel Day

Now today  is National Pet Day… and Fodor has a few puppy approved road trips…everyone run don’t walk to Carmel, the pet friendliest city in the USA… (see below)

http://www.fodors.com/news/national-pet-day-puppyapproved-road-trips-6666.html

There should be a National Pet Road Trip to Carmel Day when all the puppies who want to hit the highway…  or a National Pit Bull Road Trip to Carmel Day when all of the pit bulls who want to hit the road, Jack.

Speaking of pit bulls, it is because Maryland made the erroneous decision against pit bulls that they LOST the pet friendliest city award from Ge Pet Friendly’s contest… and Carmel WON… although I have to say that Carmel beach is not all that pit bull friendly, at least some of the people there, and neither is Monterey, but at least there is no Breed Specific Legislation bans on the books… just dirty looks and uppity kooks… anyhow, am glad that Carmel got a lot of PR in the local newspapers and TV, and on Facebook… for being pit bull friendly so now they absolutely have to LIVE UP TO IT.

am glad to see that some pit bull rescue organizations including Villalobos are being given donations due to this contest and that pit bull awareness was raised.

From go pet friendly:

Congratulations Carmel, California – you’ve been voted 2013′s Best City for Pet Travelers by GoPetFriendly.com’s readers, pet travelers, fans of your city, and pet lovers in general from around the country! We know you’ll carry your title proudly and continue to make Carmel a wonderful destination for pet travelers.

With Annapolis sporting a comfortable advantage, the tournament was turned completely on its ear when the Maryland legislature was unable to pass a law on Monday that would supersede a court decision declaring pit bulls “inherently dangerous” in the state. Now the dedicated Carmel enthusiasts were joined by passionate dog lovers across the nation on a mission to ensure that a city which is subject to the discriminatory laws imposed by its state wasn’t named the 2013 Best City for Pet Travelers. That combination propelled Carmel to the victory.

388723_10200281145803965_354268642_n

Though Annapolis does not impose a breed ban, the state of Maryland considers pit bulls “inherently dangerous” and that has forced many people to surrender their beloved pets. The pleas to end BSL were overwhelming.

What we need to remember is that the people of Annapolis did not vote for this and they don’t want it either. The people of Maryland do not need our disdain or our lectures on the evils of breed discrimination – they need our help!

let’s help make a difference in Maryland!

how to adopt or rehome a pit bull

http://www.badrap.org/adoption-strategies

Now, the not so good news, a”vicious” pit bull KTLA banned from the show.

email: sarah.grooters@ktla.com, Nancy.Cruz@ktla.com

Yesterday morning, Sally was scheduled to be on KTLA, a local news station in Los Angeles, with two adoptable dogs, Gideon and Franklyn (see Franklyn’s video)

Franklyn’s foster lives an hour away and arrived early to be there.

Prior to the day, the producers of the show asked for descriptions of the dogs and were given them.

When they arrived, one of the show producers came out, looked at Franklyn (who was busy kissing a human admirer) and said, “Oh no. We have an anti Pit-Bull policy.”

I calmly told her that we were not informed of this, and had we been, we would have cancelled our appearance as breed discrimination is not something I tolerate, and more so, is against public policy.*

She stated that I could go on with Gideon but not Franklyn. I told her that if Franklyn was not allowed, I was leaving as well, so she went in to talk to another show producer. 30 minutes later in the freezing cold, she came outside to say that they would not allow Franklyn on the air. I explained that this is also a violation of law and that they would have to find something else to fill the spot since there is no way I would support or be in a show that discriminates.

Gideon, Franklyn, and his foster Sally then left.

* California Food & Ag code Section 31683 states, in relevant part: “Except as provided in Section 122331 of the Health and Safety Code, no program regulating any dog shall be specific as to breed.”

JOIN ME IN TELLING KTLA THAT YOU WILL NOT SUPPORT BREED DISCRIMINATION.  KTLA can use some education about pit bulls and could do a show about pit bulls. Be polite and professional. Thanks.

Pit Bull Awareness month

October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month  

10 Ways to Raise Awareness and Celebrate Pit Bulls

10. Use social media such as facebook/twitter and blogs to show off positive images of Pit Bulls. Post a photo of your Pit Bull in an unlikely pose, playing with a chilld, cat, cute critter or other dog, or being just plain silly.

Educate the media and others…

Kelly Ripa (from LIVE with Kelly and Michael) said on her show yesterday that she is educated on the subject and that ALL pit bulls are dangerous and…”only gang bangers & thugs own them.” Their FB page needs more comments. Go add yours please and show Kelly and Michael some education politely.
https://www.facebook.com/LIVEKellyandMichael?fref=ts

photo.php?v=10152173116085263

what I wrote:

Kelly, your pit bull comment was completely incorrect. Negative sensationalized stories and comments about PIT Bulls leads to abuse and death of many loving animals. …for over half a century in between, 1920 to 1970, millions of Bulldogs, Bull Terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers,  American Staffordshire Terriers and all their mixed breed cousins served Americans well in every possible capacity and circumstance.”    The Pit Bull Placebo by Karen Delise.
from dog trainer Victoria Stilwell, Its Me or the Dog show
“Pit bulls can make great family pets in the hands of a responsible owner. Which breed of dog was named ‘most aggressive’ in recent scientific studies?  The family Dachshund.”
There are known factors that contribute to dogs of all breeds biting. If the dog is male, not neutered, kept chained or roams loose in a pack, etc.
 ‘The Little Rascals’  Petey was a pit bull.
and

Kelly, from the history of pit bulls and bull dogs…
True fighting dogs do not show any aggression towards humans whatsoever. Human aggression was in fact considered a major fault, so if a dog showed any human aggression it would be destroyed and the line would not be bred from anymore. Handlers were in the pit with the dogs during a fight and would not be so if they thought there was any danger. and oh by the way, last time I looked, am a newspaper reporter, senior, and NOT a gangster or thug.

and
Kelly, you are a mom with kids and a family pet. Imagine one day, police come to your door and take away the dog. You never see the dog again. They are sent to doggie jail and ultimately killed. Why? not because of anything that the dog did but because of the way they look. If this happens to a person, we call it racism, discrimination and bigotry. When it happens to dogs, it is called Breed Specific Legislation aka Breed Discrimination Legislation. Many such bans of innocent dogs have been repealed because it is ineffective, costly and serves only to assuage people’s irrational fears. Pit bulls are not the enemy. Irresponsible owners, dog fighters, animal abusers ARE the ones who need to be fined, jailed and/or punished NOT the dogs who are innocent victims of humans mistreatment.
MD’s, fire chief, pastor, police, all pit bull owners
Gangsters, thugs and pit bulls
@KellyRipa 8 of the former Vick dogs are therapy dogs now, many live in homes with kids,dogs, cats, loving dogs, The Lost dogs book
@KellyRipa In the ’70s they blamed Dobermans, ’80s German shepherds, ’90s Rottweilers. Now they blame the pit bull.”  Cesar Millan

9. Volunteer or foster with your local pit bull rescue. Give a pit bull a second chance, walk pit bulls at the local shelter, foster, rescue, adopt.

8. Share good news articles,videos, photos and books about hero Pit Bulls like Stubby, talented Pit Bulls like Petey, extraordinary Pit bulls like Wallace, Hector and the other Vicktory dogs and shelter Pit Bulls who need homes

More about the Vicktory dogs, their five year anniversary is on Pit Bull Awareness Day, yay

http://www.badrap.org/five-years-later

7.  Write letters, make phone calls, and get involved in repealing unfair BSL bans for ALL breeds

6. Educate friends, relatives, co-workers, your local shelter and the media about pit bulls. Volunteer, foster, adopt, get dogs spayed/neutered.

5. Order your very own Limited Edition Jonny Justice Gund plush toy…. do a fundraising event, order a bunch of books and/or stuffed dogs as prizes

4. Check out the latest posts at a few of the best Pit Bull blogs and Facebook pages of our pit bull superstars.

Hershey’s law and Free Memphis

brilliant end BSL video…

D-Boy, the dog that took bullets to save his family.

Roberta Trawick was sitting on her couch in her Oklahoma City home in 2009 when an armed intruder busted through her front door and told her to get on the ground. Her 2-year-old pit bull

, D-Boy, then came charging into the room after the intruder, who fired multiple times, hitting D-Boy three times — including two shots to the head — but the dog continued to run after him. The intruder, apparently spooked, fled.“That dog saved my life and my family,’ said Trawick. “Without D-Boy, that guy could have shot me and my family.” The Trawicks had rescued the pit bull from an abusive home just three months before the break-in.Generous people helped pay D-Boy’s Vet bills. He recovered and his owner did not have to worry about paying for his bill.
URGENT: TAKE ACTION TO FREE MEMPHIS 
this is a Lennox type Belfast city Council type situation…
The welfare of Memphis should truly be the ultimate goal. There is absolutely no valid or legal reason why Memphis should remain in the shelter one more day or a secret location within the control of the town at taxpayer expense when a highly qualified, loving, experienced, breed savvy family is pleading with the township to bring Memphis back home forever.Allowing Jeff and Diana Coltenback to adopt Memphis is the ultimate win-win situation for everyone—for the taxpayers, for the town, for the Coltenbacks and most importantly, for Memphis.

A tale of two pit bulls

The unconscionable Belfast City Council created a Sophie’s Choice moment for Mrs. Chambers and her two dogs.

Below is my letter and the article about the situation… and I just found out this…

it was the same dog warden for Roxy and Hooch as it was for Lennox, surprise surprise, NOT…

http://www.petforums.co.uk/dog-chat/2050-devastating-effects-cruel-law.html

Stephen Philpott, chief executive of the USPCA (Ulster Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), said: “I hate to say it but we told you so. Nobody would listen to what we were saying in court and now two dogs have suffered.

“We said these dogs possessed the unpredictable gene and what happened at the weekend has proved our point.

“Mrs Chambers is a complete innocent who deserves everyone’s sympathy. She didn’t realise what she had in her house and now she’s unfortunately found out the hard way.”

Read more: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/local-national/court-battle-dog-put-down-after-attack-13377230.html#ixzz21ku2v8xV

“If they are saying the dogs are pit bulls, what are they doing – letting me keep one and killing the other?

***

they are currently redoing their website, but here is info:

email,  enquiries@uspca.co.uk and info@uspca.co.uk

here is the twitter account…

Dear Mr. Philpott aka pompous ass,

It is one thing for a person to be blind. But to pat yourself on the back for your own willful blindness, demonizing and discriminating policies against dogs and humans, which CREATED the “unpredictable dog” so that YOU could be right about how wrong you are is the height of hubris.

Gotta hand it to you. Gonna submit your statement to Ripley’s Believe it or Not, for the MOST dishonest statement EVER uttered by a horse’s rear. If YOU are an example of someone with the predictable gene, how do YOU sleep at night and what do you tell your children? Oh whoopee, killed another innocent dog and ruined another human life today worshipping at the altar of my hubris?

IN THE REAL WORLD, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN UNPREDICTABLE GENE.

 

Myth: Pit bulls are unpredictable; they can turn on anyone, even their owner, at any time.

FACT: Pit bulls are no more or less unpredictable than any other type of dog. Often, a person who claims that a dog is “unpredictable” simply doesn’t understand dog behavior

Unpredictability myth

Pit Bulls are generally very stable, happy dogs that love people. They are dogs. The only dogs that generally are unpredictable are dogs (of all breeds) that have a medical condition or have serious genetic-based behavior problems. Any dog, of any breed, that displays unpredictable behavior should be seen by a vet and a behaviorist to get to the root cause of the problem.

In the case of Mrs. Chambers dogs, the BCC is the root cause of the dogs problem. What is next, rounding up innocent children who are unpredictable, or how about all those rowdy unpredictable seniors or teenagers???

Mrs. Chambers was given a Sophie’s Choice moment, why? The BCC created the situation and the problem. The dog was fine until the BCC got your hands on her.  Catch 22 has got nothing on you.

 

Make NO mistake the world is watching Belfast City Council, USPCA and Belfast, Ireland because of the apparent obstinate stupidity that runs rampant in your city officials. You have had ample opportunities to LEARN from world renowned dog experts but have refused preferring to remain close-minded no matter the consequences.

You are cowards and bullies who prefer to kill and demonize and discriminate against dogs because you lack the moral fortitude and courage to hold human beings accountable. You prefer expediency over knowledge. Rather than learn from your mistakes, you just keep on killing, pretending you care about the public and are doing so in the name of public safety. What a load of hooey.

We will NOT forget Lennox and we will NOT forget Roxy and all of the other innocent blood on your hands.

And one day YOU will be prosecuted for the crimes YOU have committed, your cold, cruel, heartless inhumane  actions against both canines and humans.

Count me disgusted, along with your other 200,000+ fans aka Lennox Army.

these are not the two dogs of Mrs. Chambers but were like this before the BCC separated them.

A Pit bull: the secret to Mona Lisa’s smile… HAH…

Pit bulls are good dogs

Jim Crosby interview on Dr. Sue radio show discussing Lennox and BSL

Notes

cannot tell ashes by dna test, so bcc could send family any old ashes and say it was Lennox

Jim Crosby would have done a much more extensive assessment evaluation of Lennox which he explained

What to do about BSL

Go talk to your local legislators face to face is best

They figure that if one constituent talks to them in person that equals, l = 1,000

Tell them that Bsl does not work, is not fair

Propose alternative stategies that address behaviors, give them an alternative to BSL.

New bill in Wales focuses on Behavior Not Breed

http://www.itv.com/news/wales/2012-07-17/dangerous-dogs-bill-amongst-planned-new-welsh-laws/

Should be quantifiable behavior across all breeds with levels of danger and punishment/solutions for each depending on what the danger is

for dog bite incidents

get a warning, get a fine, have to get training, meet some standards, if you don’t do, you go to jail

Jim is going to be teaching folks in the UK about dogs, to work with them, train them how to react, what to look for

There is no one in the UK with Jim’s experience with aggressive and truly dangerous dogs

Humans have responsibilities and should go to jail, and be held accountable… need to look at what did the dog do and why and don’t just say the dog did it or blame breeds

we did racial profiling (we still do in some states, Arizona) with humans, oh that guy looks like a criminal, put him in jail, now kill him…

teach the kids too

educate people and kids on how to treat a dog

If a dog is abused affects a dog’s behavior, starts with the owner

Animal abuse is a known precursor to people abuse

Authorities have to take animal cruelty more seriously

Assess the threat… Dachsunds lead the pack in dog bites, number one …

Lennox is the straw that broke our backs, so many people from so many countries, came together to support Lennoxes cause, we have a responsibility to Lennox to keep this ball rolling

Instead of bsl, there are dogs we have to protect people from, big dogs or little ones

We need to focus on educating legislators around world based on observable and quantifiable behavior not on looks

Racial profiling, we should be learning that we can only control behavior not breeds

Human behavior, human responsibility. place the burden on good and bad human behavior

It is inhumane to punish people or dogs based on looks… has to be based on behavior

Enough is enough

If someone shows up at your door without a warrant, don’t just let them take your dog away, make them take it thru the legal process… defend your dog, resources in uk, dda watch,be courteous but don’t let them take your dog without a warrant…

Make them follow their own rules

Don’t sign papers, if you sign the papers, you are giving them permission to kill your dog, death warrant, don’t sign your rights away

Follow the rules, but make the authorities follow the rules too

Free legal aid in UK

Make sure the attorney understands this dog is part of your family

Question the qualifications of their experts… if they’re using experts

Does the expert meet the criteria?

Don’t give up

Due process

Just because someone complains about your dog does not mean that all is lost

danger of dogs and pit bull attacks

With a US population of 311,591,917 (July 2011) and that year’s 15 dog attack fatalities, your chances of dying in a dog attack (from all breeds combined) is 1 in 20,772,794….almost 21 MILLION! One in over *30 MILLION* from a Pit-Bull or Pit-Mix.

STATISTICALLY in the UNITED STATES, GUESS WHAT BREED TOPPED THE LIST FOR BITES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS INJURIES TO PEOPLE? – Hospital statistics prove it was HUMANS. New York City alone has more people hospitalized with human bites per year than bites by every breed of dog combined in the whole world.
(Humans need to be banned, too.)

How serious is that pit bull threat again???
