DogsBite.org officially turns 1-year old today, October 15, 2008. We don't know how to write about this Birthday, except that it has been a bumpy and at times ankle-turning path to reach this one-year mark. The road to powerful public citizenship, however, is always an obstacle course with sudden acts, like slipping in the mud or discovering that the current wall you are climbing is 1,000 feet, not the 25 feet you had imagined.
It is a road that one can only learn by treading.
Some of our stalwart followers found us just days after the site was launched and have been with us ever since. Being constantly in the "thick of it," we do not have the perspective of casual readers, but we are in agreement that we have seen shifts in attitudes take place nationwide regarding pit bulls and other dangerous dogs. The voice of DogsBite.org -- which is the voice of many contributors -- has made a difference in this shift.
We leave you with our favorite YouTube video. When in the business of reporting serious injury on a daily basis, one needs brief bursts of joy. We also visit CuteOverload.com when time allows.
