What will be Patron's Fate?
I don't like to put any negative Pit Bull media on here, but this story intrigues me, it involves a Pit Bull and an NFL athlete. James Harrison, who was just in the news recently for not attending the White House celebration of the Pittsburgh Steelers winning the Super Bowl, and again this week for one of his dogs biting his son. I hate hearing this because it strengthens the negative stereotype of Pit Bulls. In one article that I read it stated that the child's mother let the dog out and it bit the boy after he had been crying. Now James Harrison doesn't want the dog euthanized, he cares so much for the dog. I try to never make any judgements of people when they make decisions like this. I am not a parent of a human child. I understand how difficult it is for Harrison. I love my dogs like they are my children. There could be another place for his dog Patron. Harrison's son has been released from the hospital and only had minor injuries. Again this is a tough one...I have no idea how responsible Harrison is with his dogs or if he raised them from birth or if he was the second owner. My dogs have only been around a few children and I think would be more scared of a child than aggressive. Again, I don't like negative media, but this one has me thinking...It makes me sick to hear all the talk this week about no one should have Pit Bulls around kids and how you should get rid of your Pit Bulls if you have kids. Thoughts Pit Bull Lovers?
The main reason I started this blog is to show you some insight into my life and show how normal 'girly' girls like me own the most wonderful breed on the planet. For those scared, confused, or misinformed about Pit Bulls, see that I am just like you and these two boys are my babies. If one person learns something about Pit Bulls from me, I have succeeded. I am a Bellydancing, Jazzercising, Trekking, Boot Camper that loves her fiance and her 2 Pit Bulls dearly. I am a University of Tennesee Grad (twice) and a die hard Vol Fan, no other college teams for me. I am very opinionated and want to save all the homeless dogs in Memphis and around the world...well one dog at a time. Oh and I am also in search of the best bbq in Memphis, by the way.. I am also a small business owner managing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. It's fun and it pays the bills :)
