People already assume that


People already assume that the reason for owning a pit is a negative one.  People who judge a dog by the name or the breed are simply ignorant and need to be educated.  The only ones that irritate me are those who cling to and protect their ignorance by refusing to open their eyes to the truth.  Those people are why I am a registered voter, they are why I go to the polls to stand up for what I believe in.  My grandfather named his toy poodle “Tank” because he thought it was funny to name a little dog such a big, tough name.  I don’t think I have ever met a nastier, more viscious dog in my life (God rest her soul.)  But nobody thought twice about the name becuase it was a poodle.  I understand completely the argument you make, however, I refused to give into the people who told us that bringing a pitbull into a home with two kids was dangerous and I refuse to name my dog something “safe” just becuase it may portray a negative image.  Not to say that I have no feelings of responsibility towards the breed.  I do.  I love pits and we are actively trying to combat the media hype.  Kaos is a fantastic ambasador for the breed and I LOVE LOVE LOVE taking him out around town.  We inspired my sister to adopt a pit puppy, named Athena.  My grandma used to close her eyes and pray when she came over and Kaos would lick her.  The last time she was over for dinner, she used him as a foot rest and spoiled him rotten with table scraps (which he is absolutely NOT allowed to have!)  At any rate, it is what it is, I’m not trying to step on any toes, but I have loved the name since it popped into my head and I love telling people that we named our dog Kaos.
