CHANGING THE WAY WE THINK.....ONE PIT BULL AT A TIME!

I WORK FOR TWO LOCAL PHOENIX ANIMAL SHELTERS BY POSTING WEEKLY OR BI-WEEKLY ARTICLES HERE ON HUBPAGES IN ORDER TO HELP FIND HOMES FOR SOME OF THE DOGS AND CATS WHO HAVE BEEN "SHELTERED" JUST A LITTLE TOO LONG AND REALLY, REALLY NEED HOMES NOW!! IT WAS MY GOOD FORTUNE THIS PAST WEEK TO FOSTER A ONE YEAR OLD, FEMALE, PIT MIX NAMED "MAGGIE". I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION, AS MOST OF US ARE, THAT PITS ARE MEAN, AGGRESSIVE AND DOWNRIGHT SCARY. WELL, I AM HERE TO TELL YOU, THAT IS NOT TRUE! I BROUGHT MAGGIE INTO MY PACK, AND INTRODUCED HER TO CHARLIE, MY NINE YEAR OLD GERMAN SHEPARD MIX AND GRACIE, MY SIX YEAR OLD AUSSIE/BORDER COLLIE MIX. UPON THEIR FIRST MEET AND GREET, MAGGIE, GENTLY LAYED DOWN ON THE GROUND, TURNED ON HER SIDE, AND SHOWED THEM SHE WAS TOTALLY SUBMISSIVE. OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, SHE BASICALLY LICKED THEM TO DEATH. SHE EVEN CAME INTO OUR BEDROOM AT 1:3OAM AND WOKE US UP TO TELL US SHE HAD TO GO OUTSIDE TO "DO HER THING"! ALL SHE WANTED WAS TO BE LOVED, SIT BY US ON THE COUCH AND KISS US ALL OVER THE FACE! SHE WAS SWEETER AND EVEN MORE DOCILE THAN THE DOGS WE HAVE HAD IN THE PAST, GOLDEN RETRIEVERS AND OUR CURRENT DOGS! WOW! THE REASON I FOSTERED HER WAS THAT SHE HAD BEEN AT THE MCACC (MARICOPA COUNTY ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL) FOR ALMOST ONE MONTH! WHY? THE ONLY REASON THAT I CAN THINK OF WAS THAT SHE LOOKED LIKE A PIT BULL AND HER BREED'S REPUTATION PRECEEDED HER! SHE REMINDED ME OF "PETEY" OF THE LITTLE RASCALS (OUR GANG SERIES) AND SUDDENLY A "RED LIGHT" WENT OFF IN MY BRAIN! PETEY WAS A PITBULL! IMAGINE THAT? IF YOU AREN'T OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER WATCHING THE SHOW ON A SMALL BLACK AND WHITE TV, YOU MAY HAVE SEEN IT ON "NICK AT NIGHT"!
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT. A SMALL GROUP OF IGNORANT "FOLKS" WHO DECIDED TO MAKE THESE BEAUTIFUL, DOCILE DOGS INTO FIGHTERS CHANGED THE WAY PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT AN ENTIRE BREED! THAT IS JUST WRONG! IN MY NEXT ARTICLE, I AM GOING TO INTRODUCE YOU TO APRIL AND I HOPE YOU WILL LOOK AT HER DIFFERENTLY AFTER READING THIS ARTICLE. GOD BLESS THE PITBULLS EVERYWHERE!!

After raising four sons and being married twice, I pretty much thought I knew as much as there was to know, at least as much as any woman knows, about penises. I cannot even express to you the number of times in a day I...
