Stupid Pet Peeves

My SIL was a rabid pit apologist. She had a pit and a golden. She'd had the pit for 12 years, and together with the golden for 8. It never so much as barked at anyone. Seemed very docile. She always posted crap on Facebook about how it's the owner not the dog, got into heavy arguments defending pits, how they are the sweetest dogs in the world and would never hurt a fly.

Until she came home from work and found her pit ripping her golden to shreds in the backyard. She tried to separate them and the pit turned on her. Cut up her hands pretty bad. There was nothing she could do. Animal control and the police came out and finally got the dog under control. They held it of course and she visited it like 3 days later and it was just sweet and kind and loving. And she was terrified of it. Of course they put it down.

She doesn't post that kind of stuff any more.
This.

And I ****ing love that my wife is bringing our two year old daughter to my sis-in-law’s house next week for an hour or two so she can watch her. Just ****ing great. But if I say anything I’m the dick as always. I’m being ridiculous. The dog is fine.

Yep. Until it isn't.

I'm never comfortable around Pit Bulls. And since I'm not comfortable I get extra worried that my nervousness is going to make the dog "suspicious" of me.

I agree that out of all the dog breeds why does someone have to have a pit? In part I know why based on several of the people I've known who have them, they think they're badass dogs that can kick all the other dog's asses and even kill people. That's been a part of the attraction for many of the pit owners I know.

This is me. Exactly me.

Like I wouldn’t have even said anything to those people had I been fish because I have no idea if my tone, intonation, eye contact, whatever is gonna set the dog off.

Agree with all of this, especially the first part. And I'm about as big of a dog lover as you could ever find.

Found this searching for "weaponized pitbull". Holy ****ing hell!

A Kentucky woman has been charged with murder after police found her pounding on a man at his home, with the help of a pit bull she was ordering to attack.
Melissa D. Wolke, 38, told police she had been going “redneck” on the victim, Donald W. Abner, 55, of Richmond, news reports said.

If somebody wants a dog that looks like it can destroy anything, but in reality is a big ol’ softy, get an English Mastiff. Mine just turned one the other day and is an absolute blast to have. That is if you like being slobbered on by a 150-200 pound animal that thinks it’s a lap dog.

This was Hercules at about 10 weeks or so:

As a big slobbery dog owner, a 150 pound Newfoundland, a few things to consider .....

1. If you go on vacation and need someone to watch your dog. Having a huge dog is a real issue. Our dog is the sweetest boy, but he is strong as a god damn ox so that rules my mom out from taking care of him because the 1% chance he wants to run after a dog or try and run out of the gate there is nothing she can do to stop him.

2. Slobbering. If it's not your dog people do not want to deal with insane amounts of slobber. So you can't really take them out and about. Shake their head and huge slobber gobs go flying 15 feet in any direction

3. Bathing and routine grooming take SOOOOOOO much longer. And are so much more imortant.

Still I love big dogs. Will probably go with something less slobbery and hairy next time though. Although our Newfie is the best dog we've ever had personality and temperment wise. He is just a lot more work.

If I had no kids and a very secure backyard I'd be into Pits. I think they are beautiful, smart dogs, but I would never ever ever let them around my kids. Never ever ever. Beautiful, loyal dogs if you are an adult but my kids are more important than some stupid ****ing breed, A lot of other dogs won't full on murder.

That looks like a St Bernard in the picture.

The slobber is the worst part imo.

I'm a huge dog lover and slobber simply comes with loving dogs so I can deal with it better than most. But many many people can't deal with the slobber from my experiences.

Edit: after clicking on the picture for a better look I see the color isn't that of a st Bernard.

I really can't stand it when a computer monitor is up high and tilted down. I don't want my monitor looking down on me.

I have fall allergies. Sagebrush and ragweed from what my Dr told me, but I didn't do an actual allergy test, he just made a guess based on my symptoms. Seems legit as I get very congested in the fall SOME years. Not all years, but some. And this didn't begin until I was well into my 30s. So, onto my pet peeve...

Sometimes I mention that I have fall allergies. There's a certain type of person who seems absolutely compelled to respond to that with a boastful declaration that they DO NOT HAVE ANY ALLERGIES!!! YARGH!

Cool ****ing story. You must be a superior specimen of the human species. Thanks for saying that in a way that implies I'm like ****ing defective or whatever because I get congested for 6 weeks 1 out of every 2-3 years (often I get through a fall season without any symptoms).

People would not brag to a cancer patient that they themselves do not have cancer. It is a bit insensitive to point out good health to a sick person. I hope I've never done that, but fear I may have.

As someone who doesn't have allergies or cancer I guess I win.
