ARGH

People are such sheep. Today I saw a police report where a man and his dog were attacked by a couple of other dogs running loose. He, naturally, reported he'd been attached by "pit bulls." I read the police report further to find when the officer found the home of the dogs, that they were a Welsh Corgi and a half-Basset hound (neither of which had any history of aggression). *headdesk* I had to argue with a girl at work because of her "I HATE pit bulls!" attitude... Sadly, I didn't get very far.

And why is it, whenever there is a dog attack, they HAVE to go out of their way to report it's a pit bull -- any time it's any other breed of dog, it's just "dog attack"? It just adds to the whole idiocy. There are several pibbies in this neighborhood and they're all lovely, friendly, delightful dogs.

The other day was Pit Bull Awareness Day, too (last Saturday). I like Pibbies. They're fun, energetic doggies.

And there's got to be something even more wrong with his story... because Corgis? They're *bred* specifically for non-aggression. It takes a LOT to get them worked up to a point where they'll attack.

But seriously, I don't think you could have picked two breeds more *unlike* pit bulls in appearance than those. Except maybe a Dachshund and Chihuahua.

I know, right? Unfortunately, police reports are often lacking in facts as they deal with "what he saw/said" unless there are witness reports (which also vary from eyeball to eyeball).

Breed prejudice makes me furious. I'm not kidding when I say I think chihuahuas bite more people than pitties do.

I'm sure of it! Chihuahuas are REALLY aggressive (they come dashing at Bo, who is about twenty times their size).

How can you mistake a corgi and a basset for a pit bull? Maybe being attacked by dogs that are low to the ground isn't macho.
