The Reasons I Cannot Forgive Michael Vick

Since this whole Subway Ordeal I have had several individuals ask why I can't just forgive Michael Vick. Most of us who feel this way about Vick, have been asked this question. Personally, there are so many reasons that I cannot completely explain my feelings in an average conversation. That's what this post is for. Listed below are the reasons I cannot forgive Michael Vick.

1. I have read the Lost Dogs. Below is an excerpt from the book. Most people that support Vick haven't read this book and I think they really should.


2. Michael Vick doesn't care about what he did to those dogs.


3. Yes, he is now a spokesperson for the HSUS and speaks to kids with similar life situations that he had about dogfighting, however, that is a part of his community service. It's something he is required to do.

4. Michael Vick, himself, has said that he wouldn't go back and change his life.
"I wouldn't change anything about my life if I could," he said. "As crazy as this may sound, going to prison really changed my life. I was able to go in and come out with a plan."
When I read this quote, I think about that poor dog he slammed into the ground. I can literally hear the bones breaking and the squeals in my head as I imagine it. I can also see him holding the dogs' heads in buckets of water, as they struggle to get free. I can feel the fear they experienced until they eventually stopped breathing.

Michael Vick served 19 months in prison. Many people say that he served his time, but 19 months is not enough time for what he did. Not to me anyways.

To my readers who disagree: Because this is a blog about Pit Bulls and NOT Michael Vick. I will respect your opinion as long as you respect mine. If you would like to speak with me about this matter, I would appreciate hearing from you in a respective manner. Thank you!

Save the Pit Bulls in San Diego

Pit Bulls may be in jeopardy in San Diego after recent Pit Bull attacks in the area. There is a survey going on at the San Diego Union Tribune about whether the city should ban Pit Bulls. Please call and vote against it. The number is 1-800-244-6397 ext. 2506. It is all automated.
Please call and vote ASAP!

Don't let this happen in San Diego!

Say No to Subway

At Sunday Evening's BET Award's, the known felon and dogfighter we Pit Bull lover's despise, was awarded the Subway Sportsmen of the Year Award. I am asking you to take your sub sandwich business else where to show Subway we will not be supporting them while they are supporting a dog murderer.

I have been reading all that I can about this issue and do believe that the awards were voted on by the people. However, Subway should have a say on this issue and should immediately retract this award. The only activity I have seen from Subway is them deleting the masses of comments that they are getting on their Facebook Page. 

If you'd like to sign the petition you can do so by clicking here.
You can also contact Subway by calling: 800-888-4848
You can also support this cause on Facebook at the No Way Subway Facebook Page!

Please, please, PLEASE, keep your comments respectable and professional. You may be angry but cursing and "yelling" will not be taken seriously. Thanks, everyone!

Don't Be A Pit Bully: Happy Birthday!

It has been nearly a year since I started this blog. June 27th marks the 1st Birthday of Don't Be A Pit Bully! A year ago, at this time, I was spending all my time with my, then, 7th month old pit bull and dealing with the stereotypes and negativity that pit bull owners experience. I wanted to somehow contribute something to help pit bulls get a better reputation and this blog was it. The blog started out with 7 viewers a day and a year later, it's at 100+ people a day. Don't Be A Pit Bully has been viewed 118 different countries by 16,000 people. I am truly humbled and to be honest, nearly in tears. Thank you all so very much for supporting me. I can never express how thankful I truly am.


Addie says, "Thank You for reading my Mom's blog!"

I Love Pit Bulls: Video

This youtube video has been circulating through the world wide web and I just saw it today. It's Debbie and she talks about her love for cats! Make sure you watch this video before you watch my video!


Now that you have seen that video, I thought I would do my own version, but with Pit Bulls.

Enjoy!


P.S. That is my sister laughing in the background.

Don't Be a Pit Bully: QR Code

Don't Be A Pit Bully is getting with the technological times. We now have a QR code! It's not really too helpful to have this on the blog but I will find good use for it I'm sure! Do you have any good ideas for how I could use it?!


Summer Lovin': The Pit Bull Edition

A couple of posts back, I asked you to submit pictures of your Pitties doing their favorite summer activities. Unfortunately, I didn't get too many pics but thats okay since summer is just beginning! For now, I will post the pictures I have and if you want to participate send me some pictures! Either post them to the Don't Be A Pit Bully Facebook Page or email them to me at dontbeapitbully@gmail.com!

Some Pitties like swimming in the pool to keep cool!

While others play in the sprinkler.

Some even settle for the kiddie pool.



Or, like me, they like to hide out inside, in the air conditioning!

I'd Like You to Meet...

It just so happens that the Don't Be A Pit Bully Facebook Page reached 300 likes the other day! In honor of that achievement I decided to ask the 300th "liker" if they'd let to participate in I'd Like You to Meet. Honestly, there isn't a better dog for this article. I would you to meet...


Bam Bigglesteen

Here's some info about Bam from Bam himself!

I am mostly Pit Bull (brindle colored) with some Labrador mixed in. When kids see me a lot of them say I look like a tiger because of my stripes. The "pit" makes me strong and the "lab" gives me height which is good for my owner. I am a pound puppy rescue who now is a medical alert service dog for my owner who has diabetes. I know when her sugar levels get out of whack before she does and I help to prevent problems related to high and or low blood sugar fluctutions. If she is unable to help herself I will bark and/or go get someone for assistance. When my red vest goes on I am all business. When I get home and take it off, I am pretty much a crazy dog just like anyone else. I have a little sister ("Puggle" pug and beagle mix) named Yoko. Now, thats one crazy dog!! Always on the go... We like to race around the house and play tug o' war with a big knotted nylon rope.

Pit Bull Haters: What You Don't Know

People who aren't Pittie lovers like ourselves think they know Pit Bulls. They read in the news about how they're baby-eating, dog fighting monsters and that's all they know. Well, this post is dedicated to those people. Here's what you guys don't know...

  • Pit Bulls are the biggest cuddlers. There isn't a moment while I'm on the couch that my pit bull, Addie, isn't right next to me or on top of me. If she sleeps with me, she is not at my feet, rather, on my feet. I hear the same about other Pit Bulls as well. They like being as close as possible.
  • Most Pit Bulls don't hate other dogs. The Pit Bulls I know and love thrive around other dogs. You can see the joy in their eyes, I'm tellin' ya.
  • Most dogs wag their tales when they're meeting someone new. Not Pit Bulls. Their tails wag so hard that they start doing something us Pittie lovers like to call the butt/body wiggle. They literally wiggle their bodies with excitement. 
  • They are very intelligent. My Pit Bull kisses on demand.
  • Pit Bulls are not killers. The ones you read about have not been cared for properly by their owners. When they get the love and affection they deserve, they are great dogs and there are thousands of examples to prove that.
