PIT BULL INVOLVED IN INCIDENT WITH CHILD AT AKC EVENT!!!

This article was sent to me by Laura, a boxer mom. She thought it was worthy of the webpage, and so do I. Thanx Laura!

Pit bulls are called American Staffordshire Terriers in the AKC.

AP NEWS: BERRYVILLE , VA APRIL 5 2007

From the World Wide WebPolice were called today to the Clarke County Fairgrounds to investigate an incident involving a Pit Bull Terrier dog and a 9 year old child. According to witnesses, the child was walking near the show rings unsupervised when she suddenly came face to face with the 70 lb Pit Bull Terrier dog.

The child threw her arms around the dog's neck, reports say, when the unthinkable happened. The dog began enthusiastically licking the girl's face as his tail wagged briskly."It was awful", said one bystander, "there was nothing we could do. That dog was just giving that child every once of love he had and no one did a thing to stop it".

Another witness, who took video of the event, said "This happens all the time, I don't know how it hasn't made the news before now". One spectator, who declined to be named in this interview, told reporters, "The sounds were just heartwrenching, all that laughing and giggling. It made me smile so hard my face hurts. I plan to sue for pain and suffering".

The handler of the dog admits this is not the first time such an incident has occurred, and that the owners were "well aware of the stable, loving, and patient temperament of this dog". The owners were unavailable for comment. Police state that the handler, who was noticeably unrepentant, was cited for Reckless Entertainment. The dog was given roasted chicken treats and was not taken into custody.

Useless to say that in most cases the problem is not the dog but the dog owner. The pit bull has the wrong image cause some irresponsible people.

Ok, you need to blog about that stupid NFL player who is not fit to be called a human. I am so barking mad I can't believe these things happen.

By the way we all miss you and hope everything is going well.
