Ignorant people rant: Rescues,.BYBs and Pitties

lol not me- the people I'm ranting about are the ignorants...:D :shrug: :o

It's a short one...;)

Ok so we're out for breakfast with the man's friends and of course I mention "Bob the super crazy beautiful 11 year old pyranees" and how I want him. And one says, "But at eleven, he's going to die in like a year or two. Why would you want that?" So I explain that every doggy needs and deserves a good life, and senior doggies just need that good life given to them faster, but that doesn't mean they're not worth it.


So then the same one says "my next dog is a pure bred pitbull". So aside from the fact that it was mentioned here a few times that pitties aren't a real breed, I said, "hey, when you're ready, let me know and I can help you get one from Ontario, since they're all getting killed over there because of the ban."

So then he replies, "What are you the recue queen all of a sudden? No, I already know where I'm getting it from. This guy I know has two awesome pitties and he's breeding them soon."

So I'm trying to get my man to gimme his email addy so I can send him Roxy's story and some links to pitty rescues... It might not help, but I have to say my peace.:o

end rant/

Yeah, I know, it wasn't too ranty. But I figure you all could fill in the emotional explosion parts.;)

Well Princess Prin (he-he, I know I'm gonna catch it for that...) why don't you link him to the Advocate for the Underdog's site, and tell him you expect him to buy at least 10 calendars for Christmas presents and then on to the Banned Aid site where you expect him to donate a big chunk of his paycheque as insurance against Quebec laying down the same blinkedy-blank inane legislation and then on to the Staff site where he can belly up to th bar and meet the family challenge of $1000 as evidence that he wants a bully for all the RIGHT reasons and not the machismo ~ because after all a man with real cajones doesn't need a dog to prove himself as a man right?

Oops I ranted again....

"my next dog is a pure bred pitbull".

"What are you the recue queen all of a sudden? No, I already know where I'm getting it from. This guy I know has two awesome pitties and he's breeding them soon."

Sometimes we must smile and pretend we don't know their idiots ;)
