I sat down and wrote another really angry post a bit ago……but while I was proof-reading it, I was struck by how frustrated and unhappy I was feeling. I had to take a deep breath, and remind myself that those groups have no real power over me, my family, my life or my happiness. I have the great good fortune to work with an organization who has people who can effective fight against those idiots. That the tide in the country is turning, and far more communities are repealing breed discrimination laws than are passing it. I cannot allow some marginalized idiots to color my world with their brand of hate and fanatasim.
Instead, I am going to concentrate on how great Bubs looked in his new Bubba Gump t-shirt today. And I’m going to smile down at Turtle while she sits patiently waiting for me to accidentally drop part of my dinner on the floor.
I’m going to continue to work with my dogs, to make sure that others can see they are well-trained companions, and not killer beasts.
I will share pictures of dogs who need someone to offer them a home and happiness.
I will donate to those rescues that I can.
I will proudly wear my assorted pit bull terrier type dog rescue shirts.
I will ask all my family and friends to watch the movie The Champions when it becomes readily available.
I will continue my bizarre new hobby of making dog snoods for everyone I know.
I will hold and snuggle my companions. I will play ball, and tug and go on long rambling walks.
Hear that PETA and DBO? You have no power over my life or my happiness.
