  1. I am too.

    I did not know the extent to which you were harrassed – I'm sure I still don't – when you began this blog, and still are.

    It is insane the lengths to which people have gone to protect lies about fighting dogs, and attack a victim.

    You have done so much to speak for victims and to broadcast the truth!

    Thank you!

  2. Also, this along with some of your other blogs have been linked in my most prominent blog. Hopefully more people will see them!

    Keep up with the good work!

  3. The Maryland Court of Appeals has already been down this road in 1998 where a landlord paid out $7.5 Million dollars when a tenant's Pit Bull killed a visiting chid:

    Matthews v. Amberwood Assocs. Ltd. Partnership, Inc., _ A. 2d -, No. 74, Sept. Term,1997,1998 WL 713452 (Md. Oct. 7,1998).

    The Maryland Court of Appeals held a landlord owes a duty to a tenant's social guests who, while in the tenant's apartment, are injured or killed by the tenant's pit bull, if (1) the landlord knew of the dog's presence and was aware of its dangerousness, (2) the dog's presence violated the lease, and (3) the landlord could have taken steps to abate the danger.

    Note to landlords…when you rent to Pit Owners, be prepared to be the Adult Supervision in the situation and have good insurance. They will leave you holding the bag!
