I know they’ve been on for a while but I haven’t seen Pit Boss until today. Actually last night but it was after midnight so I count it as today. This morning when I woke up I turned the TV on which I don’t normally do until about 4-6pm but I turned it on and Pit Boss was on Animal Planet.
I watched a couple of episodes and I think that what they are doing is good work.
One of the episodes I watched tonight (after The Gates was over) was Ashley’s stand-up routine which didn’t look so good (thanks to editing) but once Shorty gave her some encouragement she got right back on track.
I have always said that it’s not the breeding that makes them bad dogs, it’s the beating that makes them bad dogs. Pit bulls have a horrible reputation for being vicious and violent dogs but those few bad ones don’t represent all pit bulls. They are actually very good dogs if they have been raised in a positive environment with love and attention.
The ones that are seen on tv as being vicious are only that way because it was beat into them. They had to learn to be that way to survive. It’s a survival tactic and if you had to live in the environments that these dogs had to live in you would be pretty wild too, I can guarantee you that much.
My aunt and uncle have had Rottweilers who are also known for being vicious guard attack dogs but her dog, one named Miranda (may she rest in peace) was basically a huge lap dog. When I first met her she didn’t know me from Adam (or Steve even) and she started licking my face upon seeing it. She was excited to meet me and every time I went to visit them she was jumping for joy to see my face. She even slept with me in the pull out sofa bed or air mattress that I slept on during my visit. I would wake up in the morning and there she was, sound asleep right next to me, snoring away.
See, it’s because my aunt and uncle raised them with love and attention and if you have ever met a pit bull with that same love in their hearts you will see that they have been raised by good people who know what they’re doing.
Sorry, I went from saying how much I like the show to a preaching rant about dog breeds lol. Anyway, I love the show and I’m extra thrilled to hear that Ashley is one of us. She’s a big lesbian and I love her for that. Her and her vests hehe. You go gurl, keep on keepin’ on you. And Sebastian… what a hunk lol. I will definitely watch this show from now on.
