Thinking is Patriotic Profile
I had a Rottie that passed away this last winter from canine Lymphoma. With treatment we were able to sustain a good quality of life for 23 months. The odds are that only 10%-15% of dogs will ever reach full and total remission from this cancer. It is an uphill battle with small chances but nevertheless, still a chance. There is a wonderful Vet in Tulsa that can do this treatment. With his western medicine and my approach of holistic treatments and eastern medicines we were able to beat the 12 month textbook lifespan. Whole foods, omegas, green teas, etc. combined with chemotherapy are the keys to this success. I wish this dog and his handler the best as I know EXACTLY what they are facing. Good luck, I will be pulling for you both. (Oct 21, 2010 | post #4)
Look. The dog is not a killer dog. I happen to have a high fence because that is what I want. I also have a high fence because I have a swimming pool and that is to help keep neighborhood kids out and other unwanted people. I keep the dog away from small kids as a PRECAUTION ONLY. That's it. I DON'T KEEP THE DOG CAGED. NEVER STATED THAT. The dog is primarily an inside dog. The dog is a mutt. Who knows what the dog is. It is not a Pit for all of those wondering. (Oct 4, 2010 | post #133)
You do have a point. You can't fix stupid and laws won't fix stupid. Maybe there is no real answer to this equation. However, It might make some people think twice about being idiots with their dogs. (Oct 4, 2010 | post #132)
Sheesh. You people read into a lot that isn't really there. I am just stating that my fence is eight feet. Not the fact that the dog needs eight feet worth of fence. I place the dog away from children because I AM RESPONSIBLE. A dog is a dog no matter how much you love it and think it will be ok it still reacts on dog logic. I am not saying the dog is vicious animal, I am just stating that I do understand that dogs can react aggressively, for unknown reasons to us, so I choose to use caution rather than wind up in a dog bite situation.

I will have to agree with on that one. I would like a better picture of this dog. (Oct 4, 2010 | post #5)
How do I show lack of concern for people? My dog is surrounded by an eight foot fence. When I take the dog for a walk it is on a leash and harness. The dog is never allowed to roam free of the home. When small children are around the dog is placed in a secure area. The dog has never displayed aggression to anyone unless warranted. The dog is properly trained and supervised. Your aggression towards me with the "shooting my dog" shows your lack of intelligence and otherwise simple minded mob mentality. (Oct 3, 2010 | post #31)
I have seen many dogs, that don't fall under the violent breed category, attack people and other animals. I myself was attacked by a St. Bernard and a black Lab when I was a child. Two animals that don't necessarily fit the bill in the publics eyes. The fact is that all dogs can/will attack when deemed necessary by their little brains. All too often people think of their pets as humans or at least thinking or reasoning like a human. The fact is they don't and never will. I have and do own a few breeds considered dangerous. Are they? Yes and no. They are because they have a stronger prey drive than another dog. They are larger and can inflict more damage if they attack. They are not because I have socialized them with many situations and people. I have trained them properly to stifle any unwanted characteristics that they might exhibit. I also keep a tight leash in strange situations and always keep them fenced and otherwise unable to roam freely. The problem with the Pitt Bull is that they are popular among a more, I hate to say it, scummy type of crowd. These people lack the reasoning and intelligence to properly train their dogs for social situations. They think the aggressive nature is cool or acceptable and do not correct it when it surfaces. Too much T-bone the rapper on T.V. has casted a dark shadow on a dog that could be no more unassuming than a poodle. Should we banish the breed? No. We should inflict harsher punishments on the owners of dogs that are allowed to attack. It really is the irresponsible owner at fault. In closing. This dog should be put down and the owners prosecuted to the full extent of the law. There is simply no excuse for stupidity of this level. (Oct 3, 2010 | post #21)
I have no problems with this law. Anytime you are in close proximity to criminals, criminals families, victims families, deciding the fate of said criminal, there is an element of tension from all parties. (Oct 3, 2010 | post #1)

Sorry. Don't buy it... completely. Joseph Stalin was raised to be a Catholic Priest and I remain curious as to why his Christianity is shoved aside in all these arguments. Yes, there is no way to get around the fact that in his early career, Stalin made a vast effort to rid Russia of religion, but that had nothing to do with atheism. It was the only way he knew to seize power of the country. For generations the entire populace of Russia had been taught that the head of state was supposed to be close to god. At the time in question, the head of the church in Russia was a tyrant. The Russians were already disposed to servility and all Stalin did was exploit these two facts, and place himself in the position of god. Once Stalin was firmly seated in office, he revived the Russian Orthodox Church in order to intensify patriotic support for the war effort. Stalin was part of a council convened to elected a new church Patriarch. Then the Russian theological schools were opened, and thousands of churches began to function. Even the Moscow Theological Academy Seminary was re-opened, after being closed since 1918. So, while Stalin was no peach, he was not exactly what you would call a died-in-the-wool atheist. He was more a secular minded religious opportunist, which is a personal character trait. He did not use atheism to gain control, but religious principles that were modified to fit his own, sick and twisted method of revolution. (Oct 1, 2010 | post #301)
I believe it stemmed from OKC proclaiming to celebrate Halloween on Saturday instead of Sunday. (Oct 1, 2010 | post #11)

High center of gravity = easy turn over. Wonder if the drum stopped turning and the concrete solidified? That'll tip one in an instant. (Oct 1, 2010 | post #6)
