The PEOPLE a KILLER response to a stupid question.

We are a little late in getting this up, but wanted to post this here, anyway. This Newsweek opinion piece by writer Joan Raymond touches on some central issues in the Pit Bull advocacy world. It also showcases Villa Lobos, and Tia's new show, Pit Bulls & Parolees (please check this out, and if you haven't seen the first episode yet, we warn you - it's tear-inducing!).

Whether there are points to agree or disagree with in the article, the central theme that PEOPLE are to blame for so-called "Pit Bull problems" is the main point to take away; more often than ever before, opinion pieces about the breed popping up in the media have taken an approach that suggests dogs are innocent, and people are the ones who need to get their acts together.

(The article also sparked this write-up).

In other news........

Our friend Gale from Mutts n Stuff in St Louis is receiving maaaaaajor props for the (polite but oh-so-effective) verbal smack down she gave a reporter who interviewed her and Smiley King Elvis recently. Is it any wonder we love this woman???
