This is my fearsome pitbull mix. He's a pitbull/hound cross so he can hunt AND kill. hahaha as you can tell by these intimidating poses (really, it's all he's got, don't let him hear you laugh)

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

We have 4 pitties. Wouldn't trade them for the world. One of the, Chloe (popular name for classy lassies) is my seizure alert dog. She goes everywhere with me, in fact she's lying under the desk right now with her head on my foot. When we ride, she's next to me and knows to get in front of my horse if she gets a hinky feeling. Husband has trained the horse to stop immediately if that happens.

You have seizures?? And a pibble named Chloe? AND she's a seizure alert dog? We need to talk lol.. My Chloe was never trained to understand or get an aura of when I'm going to have a seizure but she knows. If she's in the same room as me and I start to have one it seriously gets her worked up. She'll be in my face or on the bed before I wake up because of the seizure.. Mine are only nocturnal absense or chronic seizures. They won't trigger while I'm awake but if they start while I'm asleep they'll continue when I'm awake and she sits there the whole time and licks my face, hands, and lies beside me. That's too funny..

i have a question for u guys, me and my brother just got into an argument about the pitbull ban in ontario, me saying its wrong him agreeing with it and he said something about when pitbulls and rotweilers get older their brain or something like that swells and puts pressure in their heads and drives them mad, is this true? i have heard other people say this but i havent heard of it happening to one. im going to look it up but i thought i would ask people who seem to have lots of experince with the breed, i dont want to steel the thread lol im just curiouse :P

Lol I have never in my life heard anything like that, and I've been are pit bulls my entire life. Whether as pets, hunting dogs, whatever.. People will try and come up with anything bad to point at breeds they don't like, it's pure ignorance and not caring to find out more before judging the entire breed on false facts and other's opinions.

ya i didnt believe it when he told me and when i looked it up all the sites said it wasnt true, we got into quite the argument :p befor i was born we had a pit bull mix with rottweiler (i think) and when i was born he got really jelouse and would try to push me off my slide and stuff, my brother brought that up and said thats what happend to him but i dont believe it because when they found him a new home he was perfectly fine again, i dont remember him but from what i heard he was a really good dog!

If you're going to look at brain size vs skull size look at Cavaliers!! The poorly-bred ones are prone to brains too big for their skulls... plus heart murmurs, plus eye issues, and any number of other serious genetic problems. A Cav bred by a responsible breeder is a truly beautiful thing, unfortunately the breed as a whole is something I prefer to avoid simply because of all the issues caused by irresponsible breeding.

ETA; and on the dangerous breed bans, did you know Boxers used to be a fighting dog breed? The aggression was bred out of them, and now they're considered one of the best breeds for the ideal family dog. Why not give pitbulls the same chance? And other "aggro" breeds too!

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

Anyone care to guess the breed with the most bite reports?

Its certainly not a bully breed...

Dachshund...thats right. Wiener dogs are the most like to bite someone according to a report I read about 3 years ago.

Anyone see any states banning Dachshunds?
