I love my "grandawg" Bently. Even more since he has moved in with me. I could brag him up as some do their kids and grand kids ... because he is just so darn funny, loving and charming. Daily he has me laughing. I'll have to take some video and do some posts on him soon.
I read the blog "Wallace the Pit Bull" and love watching his frisbe competition videos. If you check him out, be sure to watch some of the videos in the archives.
I was excited to read Wallace and his owner Roo, have adopted Hector. Hector was one of the pits that was rescued and rehabilitated from the nasty Michael Vick situation.
The BadRap blog shows Hector united with Roo and their story.
BadRap (their organization site) has taken in the Vick dogs that weren't euthanized and has worked with them to rehabilitate them into loving pets, waiting for adoption. Check out the VickDogBlog for stories and photos.
The more I read about these dogs, and experience time with Bently and a couple of my son's friends Pit's, the more I realize what unfounded fear surrounds this breed. Not the breed being the problem as much as the owners.
I guess we see that with the Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Doberman, and any other large intimidating looking dog. As I have said before, a bad dog, no matter what breed, is the product of a bad owner.
It is comical and quite amusing to see Bently, time after time, submit to Quinn, the older, 10 pound alpha dog of the house.
