Big Mickey is WATCHING YOU!


....So you better keep up with your Dog Worship!

A few points for discussion:

Debarking.  Yay or Nay?   This "savage" practice has been banned in multiple places... sort of like BSL!   Hey, Fido is more equal than the rest of us... lets let him yell at us day and night!   Lets ban Spay/Neuter and leash laws while we are at it.  Do you think Fido is all that upset that he can't wake the neighborhood for a radius of a mile?   How about you ask him and get back to us?   Oh, and try not to shatter all the concrete in the vicinity, puhleeezzze?

Dog works in mysterious ways.  "Sheba", the dog that killed the man trying to save the life of her owner (WHY does that have to be such a mouthful?  Have we gone THAT far off the deep end?!), is a multiple time mauler and MAY get off the hook - keep an eye out for SHEBA in your neighborhood! 


Freedom of speech takes another dump.   Don't say anything bad about SHEBA.   Doublethink demands that multiple time maulers are the sweetest thing ever!  "Yes, Nicole Marie, anyone who has something rude or unpleasant to say is being removed from the page. We are not required to allow "freedom of speech". This is our page, not yours. Don't like that news? Stay off the page. Problem solved."   Sorry, asshole, "problem" NOT solved as we are STILL HERE.  You shut everyone else up as there is no defense for this monster.

  1. Pit bulls are the number ONE breed for failing a 'second chance'. (http://blog.dogsbite.org/2008/06/aspca-pushing-pit-bull-adoption-big.html). A dog cannot be permitted to decide for itself when it is appropriate for it to kill. This is a vicious, dangerous animal and there is no reason it shouldn't be euthanized. U.S. SUPREME COURT, April 26, 1897, SENTELL v. NEW ORLEANS & C. R. CO.
    Laws for the protection of domestic animals are regarded as having but a limited application to dogs and cats; and, regardless of statute, a ferocious dog is looked upon as hostis humani generis, and as having no right to his life which man is bound to respect.

    1. " A dog cannot be permitted to decide for itself when it is appropriate for it to kill."

      Excellent point. I'd never been able to quite crystallize that thought. Thanks for writing!

  2. It always surprised me how many owners don't spay and neuter...

    As for Sheba, of course we have to wind around that length of words. Language is a powerful tool, and the way we shape ours can't suggest Sheba is dangerous! Allahu Mikbar!

    1. Pit bulls are seldom S/N. Why not? Because they're an urban cash crop, that's why.

  3. I can kind of understand giving the dogs from fight busts a second chance. It's misguided at the very least, but I can see the point of view that dogs raised in the fighting environment had no choice but to fight to survive. If the intentions were that good, normal people would learn from the mistakes. That being said, I just don't understand saving dogs like Mickey or Sheba, a fighting dog who never attacks anything outside of the ring is one thing. A dog that goes pit bull and attacks is a whole different animal. What's the appeal of saving proven maulers and killers? Why not just put them down and save everyone the heart and headache? Who in their right mind adopts a Mickey or Sheba? An animal with a known history of attacking humans. Please, if anyone has the answer as to why the proven vicious ones are saved, share it with me. The thought that the monster pit next door could attack one of the people around here, other than the owners, they deserve it, and be shipped off to some unsuspecting (granted probably stupid) person as a family dog sickens me.

    1. The business of 'rehabilitating' killer dogs is huge money. http://cravendesires.blogspot.com/2013/06/racketeer-influenced-and-corrupt.html

    2. "Put them down!" is the logical response of the silent majority. And guess what, we will NO LONGER be silenced!

    3. Look up Hybristophilia. It explains much.

    4. Money should be the bottom line, the money of the morons who want to adopt out a dog like Sheba. As in their money should be given to the next victim, every cent they will ever make again. Rather that victim is the adopter or some passerby, or the small animal Sheba kills. Their owner deserves to be compensated for the loos of his property.
      Like a lot of people, I felt bad for the dogs who came from Michael Vick's property. I still think dogfighting is as horrid as child abuse. So are the conditions the dogs are raised in, and the abuse. Before I risk sounding like a nutter, I feel the same way about children and animals from other abusive situations, or anything abused or neglected. They are just animals and S/N to extinction doesn't sound unreasonable, for our sake and theirs.
      Still, saving the known maulers seems sinister. The woman looking for a family dog, who chooses to ignore the research and brings home the young pit from the shelter only to have the dog attack. Then she finds out the same dog attacked someone else or was causing enough trouble in the neighborhood to be dumped at the shelter. Or me, I lived with a man who had two pits. Both were cold and good enough dogs, thankfully, but before he hurt me, and I left, I would've defended the dogs like so many others. It was the monster next door who woke me up to how most pits can be. I used to think I'd like to adopt a pit mix someday, now I know, if I ever choose to own another dog, a pit is the last thing I want. If I ever get another dog, I want something quiet and pliable, a beagle, a golden, something normal. I'll stay away from mutts, unless I'm sure there's no pit in them.
      Of course, as of right now, I don't plan on owning another dog. I'm fine with a no dogs or cats apartment. I think you almost have to build a compound to keep your pets safe from the pits anymore, anyway. Perhaps a six foot tall fence with barbed wire at the top, and concrete at the bottom could stop the pits from breaking in. I don't want to have to do all of that to own an animal. It's much easier to clean and maintain the cages of my small pets.

    5. Beagles aren't quiet. As for pits, they can easily jump a six foot fence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcWtVaVFjSE
      and scale a 12 foot chain link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtNrpxppuJA . The only way these dogs should be kept is the same way wild animals are. The problem with pits is that ONE bite can be fatal, as it was in this instance: The dog had tore into his calf and when he let go, he just snatched and pulled all the arteries out. He was lying on the steps, and when I checked his vital signs he was already dead then. (http://blog.dogsbite.org/2008/08/2008-fatality-detroit-man-killed-by.html). Of course if pit bulls were spayed and neutered into extinction there would be no more attacks OR dog fighting. You cannot train a dog to kill another dog. This is completely ABNORMAL behavior in all dogs EXCEPT fighting breeds.

    6. Beagles can be kept inside and taught to be quiet. I'd consider having a dog debarked if it refused to learn to shut up. Still, unless the monster next door comes in my window, my pets are safe, and since wheels are bad for rats, vey, vey quiet. Low maintenance and love to cuddle, which is ideal. Dogs are more work. I like my easy animals. I'm not sure I want to deal with all the work a dog requires ever again. I know you can't train a dog to fight, I was talking about the life on a chain, electrocution, hanging and everything else the dogs are put through gaining some of my sympathy. I'm against abuse period.

    1. Amazing how they have a TV show 50% dedicated to something that cannot be identified by anybody. How they know those dogs are pit bulls?

      (I say 50% because I assume that persons on parole CAN be identified).

      That said, I am going to take the position that the show should stay on the air: If these deviants want to air their degeneracy, let them. Nobody is forced to watch that show, and personally I want to know who my adversaries are.

  6. I'm all for letting this freak show run it's course, Watching white trash going full speed ahead to a train wreck and all supported by pit lovers who donate to that crap shelter she runs. And like a lot of the pits in cages there the paroles she harbors have a string of victims. In the end I"m banking on her and that dog walker exposing just what pits are through their bent logic to try and sell them as the perfect family pet.
    Meanwhile the acolytes are probably drawing lots to see who gets to lick the blood of the face of the victim pitbull Sheba.
    Keep calm and carry bear repellent
