Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

I'm waiting for the life threatening mauling by a pack of chihuahuas headline to come out.
Then you pittie freaks can have your day in the sun

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

If Arizona and some of the other states (especially warmer states) with marijuana legalization on their respective ballots pass those laws, wouldn't that attract some of the homeless there and take some of the pressure off Colorado? Or is he just trying to sabotage the competition?

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Pit bulls were never known as "nanny" dogs. That MYTH was begun in 1971 by Lillian Roth, a lover of Staffordshire terriers who wished to direct peoples' attention away from the fighting dog roots of pit bull breeds. Pit bulls are currently killing around 15 children each year in the USA and maiming dozens of other children. NO dog is a "nanny" dog, of course, but pit bulls would be the very last dog anyone would choose to "nanny" their children.

A couple of months ago two newborn infants, in separate incidents, were killed by their family pit bull. To propagate such a dangerous myth is to be responsible in part for the mauling, maiming and killing of the hundreds of children maimed and killed by pit bulls. Even BadRap, a pit bull advocacy organization based in California has debunked this cruel and dangerous MYTH.

When choosing a pet dog for your family, choose a breed proven safe over the years and that would NOT be a pit bull. Pit bulls were originally bred a couple of centuries ago in England for the one and only purpose of killing each other in dog fighting pits for blood sport with gambling. They were NEVER intended to be kept in homes as pets. When adopting a pet dog, choose very carefully. Pits are not a good choice, especially if you have young children in your home. Is it worth the risk to you? I hope not!

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

So i know Mike Cook, he's a great guy and my co-worker. He invites his co workers to his home for a get together once a month and i've played with Roxy before. The first time i met her i got the impression where she was one of the most deciplined dog i have ever met! I'm wondering why she bit the officer. She might have been provoked or was just trying to protect the new dog? I say give the couple a chance and give them back their child. I know how much Mike loves his dog, and I dont think its unfair for them to take his dog away.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Wow. I've rarely seen such incredible and out loud, in-your-face arrogance about this breed. Here, I'll edify things. Pit Bulls were originally bred to be NANNIES because of the nature of the breed - loyal, protective, sweet and stubborn. Great qualities for a nanny, wouldn't you say? And Mary Ann Redfern is right when she says "pit bulls are not like any other breed" . That's why there are so many breeds to choose from. All the bully breeds (from the Bull Mastiff down to the little Boston Bull Terrier) have specific qualities a potential owner should know - stubborn, loyal, sweet, protective. I agree that you should choose your pet pretty carefully because the ignorant folks that have pit bulls don't allow for their specific traits. If you abuse a chihuahua and piss him off, he'll go all postal on your ass! Know your breed. If you can't handle a bully breed then DON'T GET ONE - duh. But don't trash a breed that you clearly don't understand just because you wanna sound off about it. My 2 daughters own 3 pits between them and I always help them train them. It's a big responsibility to own any dog. Pits should never be your pet on a whim. You want to bitch about vicious breeds? Try a dalmatian. They are pretty twitchy by nature, or a chihuahua. Chihuahuas are pretty temperamental and quick to ire. Just educate yourself especially before you make public posts about pits. You're just embarrassing yourself.

Some ignorant posts out here by people who don't know the dogs or owners. Can attest to Roxy being one of the sweetest dogs I know and the owners are great people who care. Anyone who knows these people say the same thing.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

I wonder why this humane society--whose spokeswoman says "According to the law, it has to be pretty severe in order for us to remove someone's animal. They have to be pretty much in immediate danger"--hasn't done what dozens of humane societies have done all over the country: work to get stricter animal welfare laws. In some cities chaining a dog out is illegal. And in many, the laws regarding neglect are much stronger than they are here. That happened in those other cities because humane society leaders cared enough to make it happen.

Re: “Local election poll unsurprising

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to crack the two party system. Undecided plus "neither of the main candidates" totals 21.5 . Plus Big Johnson's 5 percent is more than Hillary's got, this poll was taken before she was found to be lying about her poor health. The two-party(more like one!) system will inexorably entrench after being blindsided by "the Donald". Two things are clear... We have to hit the establishment with both barrels and we have to do it NOW while they are in disarray. The other thing, the sad thing, is Trump is exactly what brainwashed, xenophobic morons recognize, respect and deserve. The track record of the oracular powers of EPC voters are made clear enough to embarrass anybody foolhardy enough to pay for a poll. hehe!

Re: “Cyclists say their lives are at risk from road-raging motorists

Let’s break Ray’s comments down line by line…
“Most of these so-called bikers are a menace to the public.”
Most is a tricky word, is it really most cyclist or maybe just the ones that you noticed and can still remember. Do you remember every cyclist you saw who was not being a menace?
“It is time to force bikers to be licensed, carry liability insurance,”
Licensed? So at what age would you like kids to start taking a test to ride their bike? Most cyclists also have a car and also then have a license and insurance. Cyclists also don’t need a license to be ticketed by police for breaking traffic laws.
“and to pay road taxes like the rest of do.”
Road taxes don’t even pay for most of the road. Property, income and sales tax (think 2C) make up a larger portion of the funding. Plus, the large majority of cyclists own cars. They also pay the exact same taxes even when they are riding their bicycle which has the added benefit of greatly reducing the wear and tear on those roads (less potholes for everyone)
“I've seen bikers----the large majority”
What did we say about using the word majority…
“run stop signs, weave in and out of traffic”
Some cyclists break traffic laws, and they should be ticketed for, so do cars and every road user every day. Cyclist do not break traffic laws in a greater quantity just because they are cyclist (you just happen to remember them more). And no, the sample size of only the cyclist you remember doesn’t count.
“kick cars for no reason other than spite, so on and so forth.”
Let’s hope they stub their toe…that’s just rude no matter what type of transportation you choose.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

Dogs are only as vicious as they are trained and treated. Treat them well and train them well and they are good animals. Treat them cruelly and train them to kill....they will.
Mary Ann Redfern and others like her need to get their heads out of the poop bag they are in......NO DOG IS is all HOW THEY ARE TREATED AND TRAINED. Even a poodle can be trained as a KILLER!

This is a total waste of tax payer resources. Instead do something to help people get off the street NOT shuffle them elsewhere.
