We're looking through Craigslist for dogs. But haven't found any the really work for us, so when Karen returns this one Sat., she'll take Meggie to the ADL to look at some.
As I said, we're looking through Craigslist and can't get through on day without seeing one or more ads for "free, lovable pitbulls" pitbull pups, pits looking for a good home, etc... Everyone knows how they can get at the snap of a second, why would anyone want a dog with that reputation? Especially here in S. Texas with illegals keeping the dogfighting business going strong and needing replacement meat?
Yeah, I know,,,"that's only because of the way they were treated" and
Ok, fine. Then YOU take it home and deal with it. To you it's a loving pet. to anyone else it's a weapon waiting to go off all by it's self. With little or no warning. I know,,,,"more people are bitten by Black labs than any of the so called dangerous dogs- That's because they're gentile enough to let kids play with them, and kids being kids and dogs being dogs,,,sometimes something happens. I notice that there aren't a lot of nice cuddly pitbulls playing with toddlers.
Anyway, why have pitbulls that you can't even GIVE away? Haven't they heard of spaying anf neutering?
OHHHHH,,,,,,,,,and speaking of pitbulls,,,
Here is todays entry from the pitbull of the religious world:
A businessman was in a great deal of trouble. His business was failing, he had put everything he had into the business, he owed everybody it was so bad he was even contemplating suicide. As a last resort he went to an Imam and poured out his story of tears and woe. When he had finished, the Imam said, "Here's what I want you to do, put a beach chair and a copy of the Qur’an in your car and drive down to the beach. Take the beach chair and the Qur’an to the water's edge, sit down in the beach chair, and put the Qur’an in your lap. Open the Qur’an; the wind will move the pages, but finally the Qur’an will come to rest on a page. Look down at the page and read the first thing you see. That will be your answer, that will tell you what to do." A year later the businessman went back to the Imam and brought his wife and children with him. The man was in a new custom- tailored suit, his wife in a mink coat, the children shining. The businessman pulled an envelope stuffed with money out of his pocket and gave it to the Masjid as a donation in thanks for his advice. The Imam recognized the man, and was curious. "You did as I suggested?" he asked. "Absolutely," replied the businessman. "You went to the beach?" "Absolutely." "You sat in a beach chair with the Qur’an in your lap?" "Absolutely." "You let the pages move until they stopped?" "Absolutely." "And what were the first words you saw?" "Chapter 11."
