I felt compelled to write this even though it is a little off topic for my blog.
Julie was a "pit nutter" to begin with. She was regular on some blogs I am addicted to regarding pit bulls. Slowly she saw the light, the messages that these blogs were conveying about pits. Julie owned a pit and defended pits like a "pit bull". Once her eyes were open, she started a blog,
because she saw that BSL makes sense afterall. She saw the cruelty that pits suffer and realized that BSL would help to eliminate this cruelty as well as help keep people safe. She has put together a wonderful blog written from the viewpoint of a pit bull owner. Also she began to share the problems she had with her own pit, the things that she did to try to overcome the genetics written into pit bulls, and the failures of what she tried. In other words, she did everything she could for this dog.
August 5th she made the decision to euthanize her pit rather than continue to put herself, her family, and her other dogs in danger from the escalating aggressiveness of her pit. I just couldn't let this go by because I realize what courage it took for her to reach this decision. She has shown a strength that not many people have. Instead of taking the easy way out by re-homing her pit, she chose to do the right thing. It's never the right thing pawning off your problem onto someone else just to avoid the hurt and pain.
Julie, I grieve with you and applaud you as a courageous person. You've now earned my trust and in addition, admiration. You have done the right thing and never doubt that.
