No other animal in the modern world inspires such fear and terror as the pit bull. Time and time again, we hear horror stories of dangerous pit bulls and "pit bull types" running amok and wreaking havoc on all who cross their path.

It's increasingly common these days to see advertisements for "Blue Nosed Pit Bulls," often accompanied by copy promoting the "special" or "rare" or "valuable" status of these dogs. Somewhat less often, you will also see "special," "rare," or "valuable" claims made for "Red Nosed Pit Bulls."
Sometimes, you will hear people discuss blue or red nosed pit bulls as if they were an entirely different breed, one distinct from other pit bulls, with unique characteristics.
Cesar Millan, a.k.a. "The Dog Whisperer," is a controversial figure in pit bull circles (well, not just in pit bull circles, but that's where our focus lies).

I did NOT have fun this past weekend.
Normally it's something I look forward to. Me and my humans, hanging out, playing some games, licking some ears, begging for food, and in general spreading my love.
But it's not as fun when you have explosions coming out of your butthole. Lots of explosions can be fun. Like explosions of food. Explosions of excitement. Explosions of toys. This wasn't any of those.
ADA Trumps BSL
Great news in the legal department for pit bulls owners this week. The Department of Justice ruled that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does NOT allow Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) to be applied to service dogs. The new ruling applies to all breeds, including pit bulls, which is good news for pit bull owners from Colorado to Florida, who have been told they can't have their service dogs in specific cities and towns.
Not a lot of American Pit Bull Terrier news this week, but it's always a pleasure to start off with a victory in the struggle against breed specific legislation (BSL).
Another BSL Bites the Dust
From Long Island, New York: Tuesday night, the Village of Rockville Centre reversed a ban on pit bulls and Rottweilers.
