  1. Those pics of John Harvard and Logan Shephard are uncannily similar.

    Look at all those faces, all of those innocents that did not have to die! And this leaves out all of the ones that are forever disfigured, scarred, damaged, traumatized!

    I cannot believe we do not track this info. We track all kinds of stuff, but not this? Come on.

    TBH, I don't even know if I would trust the into if they even collected it, as I can see them making some super restrictive definition of pit bull. Example: The only "real" pit bull in the records would need to be a lll of the following: An APBT registered by AKC, UKC, and the city, as APBT. Additionally, they must be ID'd by 3 other pit experts, like vet tech/ behaviorist/ rescuer, and they would have to have been born on the 2nd Tuesday in March. Anything else is a mix! A LAB mix! (Because you know no one can ID a pit… /hurl.)

  2. Colleen, thank you for doing the hard work that is necessary to change things. Although not everybody comments, there are a lot of people out there who see what you are trying to do and appreciate it.

  3. Is it posssible to start a petition for this? I just feel like there has to be something we can do.
