As an animal lover- I subscribe to Mr. Milan's mailings and this one piqued my interest.
It was about- along with another issue- pit bulls.
Groucho's niece Heather and her mate Chris introduced him to the breed in the form of two wonderful animals- females Chigger and her younger "sister" Ginger.
Chigger lived with us at the folk's house for a few years before they got a house of their own and let me tell you- if EVER there was a sweeter dog- Chigger's picture would have had to be in the dictionary next to the word.
I was with Chris and Heather when we had- due to old age and her deteriorating health- to euthanize the dear Chigger- and it was a VERY sad time.
Regardless- it is NOT the breed of dog- but how that animal is raised.
Both Chigger and Ginger were raised in loving- caring environments- and both animals responded accordingly.
I have and continue to rail against governments banning certain breeds of dogs because of uncaring- irresponsible owners
