    people make all kinds of stupid, mean and unintentionally wrong remarks on Facebook and the Internet, about gay people, about dogs, about pit bulls in particular and more

    I am noticing that people use pit bull when they want to indicate a mean or scary or even a big dog. for instance, one author I read wrote about her friend being able to wrestle a 160 pound pit bull. this was in a book. i wrote to the person and told her that there aint no such thing. that pit bulls, aka American Pit Bull...

    Most romantic towns and some of them are pet friendly too

    I would add Carmel, Mendocino and Napa to this list, too (in terms of romantic AND pet friendly).

    No. 5 San Luis Obispo, CA

    With mild year-round weather, fewer crowds, and affordable prices (at least compared to L.A. and San Francisco), this central-coastcollege town embodies California mellow, making for easy romance. It also offers easy access to great wine country (thinkSideways), laid-back Pismo Beach, and the grandeur of Hearst...

    great discussion on pit bulletin legal news radio with Cathy Rosenthal

    we have to not be emotional about these issues, just provide the info so people can feel that they are part of solving the problem (in the letter below I used her techniques for always associating pit bulls with positive, and reframing the question to educating people about dog bites and more.

    love bites. Ok not talking about vampire romances or zombies dating. Am talking about the fact that there are people who get love marks on their necks (and other body parts) and I cannot think of the name of them at the moment. That is how out of touch I am with a love life.

    My day revolves around a certain dog who wanted an encounter with a skunk this morning. No, thanks. Been there, done that. And in Cici-ville, you know all is upside down since that is her perspective from lying on her back...

    Please share, lend your voice and tell Santa Ana supervisors in Orange County, California not to destroy ANY dog fighting dogs. They are having a meeting in a few days, January 28, and want to just kill all the dogs that have been seized from dog fighting rings. Write them off as dangerous, vicious and be done with the dogs. THIS IS NOT OK.

    All of the former Michael Vick dogs are living role models and testimony to the idea that ALL of these dogs deserve a Second Chance at LIFE. It is not the...
