Do you find often that the attitudes of some people really make you sad. I posted this http://www.weddingchaos.co.uk/wedding-forum/index.php?showtopic=21426 the other day in response to Bruce and it suprises me that some people still think its right to allow the sort of thing to happen. Reading up on these silly laws and charities trying to prevent it e.g. BSL and punish the deed not the breed has made me think about preconceptions. I admit that before getting Buster I assumed that certain dogs were trouble however I would never have wished death on them! I was walking a mates dog one evening and we were attacked by a Rhodesian Ridgeback, his owner was very drunk and high and the dog was off the lead. He bit the dog then started on me I shouted at the man to get him on the lead to which he said "you shouldn't be walking your dog near my house then". I got back and contacted the council, my mate mentioned that whilst we did not want action taken against the dog we wanted the owner to keep him on a lead. The authorities did nothing and I hate to think what will come of the poor dog one day. Its not the dog that is bad but the owner who despite knowing its agression with other dogs chooses to let him out without a lead and let him out of his sight. I don't know what I am trying to say but it suprises me that anyone would want any type of dog to be put down due to a silly law. Giiven a chance a poodle or a chi would attack. We don't kill certain people to prevent crime/wars do we??? I must admit I am new to this dog stuff but owning Buster has really opened my eyes to teh sort of thing that goes on - its so sad!
