one day last week i took my 5 year old sons 9 month old pitbull puppy for a walk. On my walk a guy who lives up the road from me stopped me to ask me what i planned on doing with that dog when my wife has her baby. Immediately i thought he was asking if i had someone to take care of the dog while she goes in the hospital but turned out he thought i was gonna get rid of my family's dog because he thinks that all of the dogs of that breed attack babies and small children. About this time the dust mop he was walking finally lost control of itself and lunged at my much larger dog who seemed utterly confused that a stuffed animal would attack him. I told the guy that i had no plans on getting rid of the dog and as a matter of fact i might just put the dog bed in the nursery. My son's dog is named Ruger and he has been a fantastic puppy better than many other more socially accepted breeds i've seen. He's still a puppy and kind of hyper sometimes but overall he listens well and he loves my son with a level of devotion that blows me away. much like guns i feel that the media has a bias against the breed and pushes their agenda on us all of the time.
