What animal?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Their love is like no other; their heart is pure as gold.
Yet while going on a friendly walk, they're faced with stares of cold.

They're so very close to human, in how they act and what they do.
Unless you've known their devoted love, it's impossible to explain to you.

They are greatly more misunderstood, than any other breed.
We tend to punish this loyal dog, instead of mankind's deeds.

They are always and forever clowns, with a wish for center stage.
Yet while displaying this sense of humor, most people disengage.

They, oh, so want to make new friends, and run and jump and play.
Yet when they happily approach, most people shy away.

Often I've seen children poke, or hop on for a ride.
And when I felt they might get mad, they've only beamed with pride.

I've seen these children yank and pull, with nary a reaction.
Yet media's not interested, unless they've put someone in traction.

They love to snuggle up real close, to give lots of loves and kisses.
Yet they suffer more than any, from unfair prejudices.

What animal do I speak of, whose love is so unique?
If you've truly known one, you know of whom I speak.

There is no creature on this earth who will ever make you merrier.
The animal I do speak of, it's the American Pit Bull Terrier.

That is sweet. I know a few people that have pit bulls as pets and they are the gentlest creatures. It's all who owns them, and what they are bred for. I think it's a shame the breed got such a bad reputation. Each dog is individual.

I agree. I love pit bulls and all of them I have met have been sweeties. It depends on how they are raised IMO. I hope to have one someday, rescued of course. they are my favorite breed besides hounds, rotties, labs, and mutts.

Well, now THAT narrows it down! So basically any dogs except little yappy ones (don't worry, I agree with you. Mutts are the best!)

Did you write that poem yourself or copy it from somewhere?

If you wrote it yourself, it's very sweet. I can't remember the exact name of the magazine(s) but if the poem is your's maybe you could submit it to one of the breed magazines for apbt fanciers?

My two mutt-girls' mom was a PB. My best friend has several, and while I'd never break into her house (ha!), they're sweet as can be if you're invited. In fact, her dog Rachel helped me prepare for my wedding.

I didn't write it. Someone posted it on another board I belong to and they said they found it on myspace. Pit bulls are just very sweet dogs.

catlover_ks,

aren't they sweet? I am totally in love with both of them.

This is really beautiful and I love all animals. No one should believe what everyone else has to say, they seem to just be prejudiced against Pit Bulls.
