I found this poem on the net, and thought my fellow pit lovers would like it...
A Pitbull's Prayer
You made me what I am today, courage at it's best.
You wanted me to know no fear, a cut above the rest.
Not only did I master that, I've thrown in loyalty, too.
Look past my eyes, into my soul, you know that I'd die for you.
I'll watch your kids, I'll watch your house, your praise will be my crown.
Ask what you will, I'll do my best, I'll even be your clown.
But some of you don't like me, I'm sure I don't know why.
The only things I'm guilty of, are courage, love, and try.
But still they want to see me go, they want my breed to end.
Will I see you sit idly by, you, whom I call my friend?
You made me what I am today, you never saw me waiver.
I've done my best to keep you safe, now, won't you return the favor?
